I think there will be 3-4 teams who could use a qb who don't draft one of the top 5 looking to move up into the 30-35 range to get one of the next 4-5

Mills
Mond
Trask
Newman
Etc

Think these guys go earlier than expected (maybe not newman) and could be gone by the time we pick in r2
If the Bears want one then they should trade down from 20 for a late 1st and late 2nd then pick their poison. I prefer Mills from that list. Still rather trade up for Fields but that is a different conversation.

Brady did not suck ass in college, In Brady's four years at Michigan, the Wolverines went 40-9, including a 20-5 record when Brady moved into a starting role as a junior and senior. Michigan went 10-3 in 1998 and 10-2 in 1999.
He was benched for Drew Henson in his senior year. So yeah he did. Thats why he was a 6th rounder.

No, he absolutely didn’t suck ass in college. Maybe Lloyd Benson did but Brady did pretty well in college. Joe Montana was a 3rd draft pick so with your logic he sucked as well? They both played pretty well for their colleges. Period Mitch Trubisky was the 2nd pick in the 1st rd so your logic on where a player is drafted and their college careers is asinine.

As a junior at Michigan, Tom Brady set the school record for most passing yards in a game and it came on the road against rival Ohio State of all opponents. Brady completed 31-of-56 attempts for 375 yards, a mark that now ranks sixth in program history. "But the Wolverines had no ground game, gaining 45 yards rushing and losing 41 for a net of 4," reporting the Lansing State Journal. "Michigan acknowledged the difficulty of moving on the ground, but thought its reliance on the arm of Tom Brady — he threw 56 passes, completing 31 for 375 yards with two interceptions— at least partly a matter of circumstance."

Splitting time with Henson
In 1999, Brady's senior year, the plan was to start Brady with Henson playing the second quarter. The hot hand would play after that.


Quarterback juggling
With the juggling at quarterback, Michigan won its first five games in 1999.


The turning point of 1999
Brady's turning point came against MSU in the sixth game of the season. UM went down 17 points with Henson at QB. Brady nearly brought UM back throwing for 241 yards in the final 18 minutes.

QB competition over
Brady thew for 307 yards the following week, separating himself from Henson to become the starter the rest of the season










Please provide proof that he was benched for Drew Henson his senior year.

No summary in the article, but the author said elsewhere:

The more I find of Mills, the more I see those accuracy issues. That and the lack of experience make him a wild card. When he's on he's dropping them in and really looks the part but it's sporadic.

Sounds right up the Bears alley to me

I'm OK if they take Mond, him or Trask in 2. They may all (or at least the one Nagy wants) be gone by 3.
