Perhaps the Chicago Bears were not bidding against themselves to trade up for UNC quarterback Mitchell Trubisky.
The Kansas City Chiefs and Cleveland Browns “also coveted Trubisky and could have been a threat to up to No. 2,” league sources told The MMQB’s Emily Kaplan. The Bears traded up one spot with the San Francisco 49ers, giving up the third overall pick plus two third-rounders and a fourth-round selection.
The Chiefs traded up to grab Texas Tech quarterback Patrick Mahomes at No. 10. They gave up the 27th overall pick, a third-round pick and a future first to the Buffalo Bills.
The Browns waited until with the second round of the draft to take Notre Dame QB DeShone Kizer.
