While Mitchell Trubisky has displayed all of the tools necessary to be a solid NFL quarterback, there are still questions regarding his limited experience at the college level. Although Trubisky saw action in 31 games in his career at North Carolina, he was unable to win the starting quarterback job until his junior season. Additional concerns include the fact that he struggled against top competition, with poor performances against Georgia, Virginia Tech, and Stanford.

Mitchell Trubisky’s unique combination of arm strength, accuracy, and mobility makes him a solid option for a team in need of a quarterback. Although it may be in his best interest to sit and learn from a veteran quarterback in his first NFL season, Trubisky possesses the physical talent to overcome his lack of experience.  In the right situation he could provide value at the position in fantasy football leagues in 2017.
