The Chicago Bears have struggled for the last decade. They have only made the playoffs four times since 2000 and only seven times since 1990. That is 19 years of missing the playoffs for the Bears and a lot of the problems come from the fact that they have never had a superstar quarterback that could win for them. They thought that Jay Cutler was that man, but after making the playoffs in 2010, he spent the next six years languishing in his role - setting Bears' passing records but losing more than he was winning. Chicago finally released Cutler this offseason and used the 2017 NFL Draft to choose his replacement in Mitchell Trubisky.

Here is a look at the Chicago Bears 2017 NFL Draft team grades.

Chicago Bears Best Pick

Mitchell Trubisky has to be the best pick for the Chicago Bears when it comes to their moves in the 2017 NFL Draft. The Bears knew that they needed a leader on their offense, and while they could have done a lot to improve their defense, they still wanted Trubisky and traded up in the NFL Draft to choose him. Trubisky played for North Carolina in college but only started 13 total games and still has to earn his spot. He will likely start behind Mike Glennon, who is getting $16 million guaranteed with the Bears in 2017. Of course, there are also problems with Mitchell.

Chicago Bears Riskiest Draft Pick

As men mentioned earlier, Mitchell Trubisky has only started 13 games in college and the Chicago Bears did just sign Mike Glennon away from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with a big guarantee.

The Bears traded up just one spot - from third to second- with the San Francisco 49ers in the 2017 NFL Draft to choose Trubisky. They gave up a lot to ensure that the 49ers didn't draft Mitchell before they could and there is a doubt that the traded picks are worth what Trubisky will bring to the team in 2017 and beyond.

There were bigger needs to fill since they had Glennon but they want their future franchise quarterback and feel Trubinsky is that man.

Chicago Bears Draft Grade

The Chicago Bears made strange moves, especially trading up one spot in the 2017 NFL Draft to draft Mithcell Trubisky. The Bears needed help at defensive back, on the defensive line, and at wide receiver.

After drafting Mitchell, the Bears took a tight end from a Division Ii school before finally taking a defensive back in safety Eddie Jackson from Alabama, a player who is coming off a broken leg. Chicago then grabbed a running back and a Division II offensive lineman, ignoring two of their three most glaring needs. This was a bad draft for the Chicago Bears, a "C" at best.
