Will the Houston Texans draft quarterback Mitchell Trubisky?
With the Houston Texans expected to take a quarterback in the first round or this year’s NFL draft, they’ve made their way to Chapel Hill, North Carolina to attend quarterback Mitchell Trubisky’s pro day on Tuesday.
Jeff Risdon of Texans Wire wrote on Monday that the Houston Texans will be in attendance at North Carolina’s pro day.
"The Houston Texans are expected to attend Tuesday’s pro day at the University of North Carolina. Two sources confirmed the Texans will send representation to Chapel Hill to scout the workout."
What’s really interesting is that there aren’t any NFL head coaches in attendance.
With Trubisky expected to be taken high in the first round, he may not be available at 25 when the Texans are on the clock. But there’s always a chance he could fall to them or they could trade up if he slips a little.

As of right now there are varying opinions on Trubisky.
Trubisky is the top rated quarterback prospect, according to Pro Football Focus.
"A one-year starter, Trubisky showed good short-area accuracy, pocket presence, and the ability to make big-time throws outside the numbers. He can still improve his blitz recognition and deep ball, but his impressive one-year sample has pushed him to the top of our quarterback board."
Greg Cosell of NFL Films is not crazy about Trubisky.
Many people are worried about Trubisky being successful in the NFL after starting only one season at North Carolina. The belief is that if he’s not good enough to start more than one season in college, is he good enough to play in the NFL?
You also have to factor in that only around 12 games as a collegiate starter may not be enough of a sample size for NFL teams to be comfortable with.
The good news for Trubisky is that this year’s class of quarterbacks is weak. I imagine he would be a third or fourth round pick any other year.
