Will Mitchell Trubisky fall to the Houston Texans?

The majority of mock drafts have the Houston Texans taking a quarterback.  Usually that quarterback is Patrick Mahomes of Texas Tech.

Daniel Jeremiah of the NFL Network has released his latest mock draft on NFL.com and he picked a different quarterback.

Jeremiah has the Texans taking North Carolina quarterback Mitchell Trubisky with the 25th overall pick.

"With Tony Romo out of the picture, expect the Texans to address the quarterback position very early in this draft."

Just about a month ago Trubisky was expected to go in the top 10, now it’s starting to sound like he may not.  Some people don’t believe a single quarterback will be taken in the top part of the first round.

The great thing is that no one really knows.

The big knock on Trubisky is that he started one year of college football. Some of his teammates don’t believe that’s fair.

From CSN Chicago:

"“I think it’s unfair,” running back Elijah Hood said at the NFL Scouting Combine last month. “Mitch can play the game. I’ve been practicing with him for years and he’s always been that way, he’s always been able to play, he’s always been able to throw the ball.“… (Williams) is one of the best players to ever come through the school, and Mitch pushed him for that starting job throughout his entire career. It just lets you know what kind of player he was and what the coaches really thought of him that he was constantly nipping as this guy’s heels who was winning us football games.”"

The quarterback Trubisky lost out to in 2015–Marquiese Williams–is now an NFL free agent after going undrafted last year. He did spend some time on the two practice squads.  But what does this say about Trubisky?

I believe it says that Trubsiky wasn’t good enough in college to beat out a guy that wasn’t even good enough to be drafted last year.

Now of course some players end up being better at the NFL level then they were in college.

Look at Tom Brady.  He was good in college, but no one thought he would be great. But you can argue that he’s the exception not the rule.
