The Chicago Bears traded up to pick Mitch Trubisky as the second overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft. This was a surprise pick! Trubisky only started one year at North Carolina.

Trubisky is 6’ 2”, 222 pounds, and has a hand size of 9 ½ inches. Some had predicted Trubisky would go twelfth. So how much did Trubiksy win by being picked second instead of twelfth? Trubisky won: $15,103,893 in contract value, $10,984,650 in signing bonus, and $2,746,163 in salary cap. Trubisky as the second pick will earn approximately $28,902,911 in overall contract value, $19,160,299 in signing bonus, and $5,255,075 in salary cap. You can see why where you are picked matters!
