Chicago fans boo when Bears draft pick Mitch Trubisky photo shown on JumboTron at United Center. Turns to a few cheers when they realize he's actually here.

Mitchell Trubisky was just shown on the video boards inside the United Center, and a chorus of boos initially greeted him. Wow.

Chicago Bears take another offensive player on Friday, moving back from 36 to 45 in Round 2 and selecting Ashland tight end Adam Shaheen.

ESPN Stats and Information  

The Bears went all the way to the GLIAC to pick up a weapon in Round 2. Tight end Adam Shaheen is the fourth Ashland player to get drafted in the common draft era, and the first to go in the first six rounds.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

Expected the Bears to go with a defensive back at No.45, but general manager Ryan Pace continues to draft on upside. TE Adam Shaheen has a massive frame at 6-foot-6, 278 pounds and high 4.7 speed. Raw talent at the D2 level.


Bears land huge target in Adam Shaheen

Mel Kiper Jr. looks at Chicago's new tight end, whose combination of size, athletic ability and speed justifies his second-round selection despite coming from Division II Ashland.

Jeff Dickerson ESPN Staff Writer 

Bears address tight end depth with Ashland's Adam Shaheen at No. 45 overall. Chicago did sign Dion Sims in free agency, and still have veteran Zach Miller under contract, but the club felt thin at the position last year after trading Martellus Bennett to NE. Shaheen is 6-foot-6, 278 pounds, but was an accomplished pass catcher in college. He'll make things interesting for Mike Glennon/Mitchell Trubisky in the passing game with the mismatches he can create. But he could be another project, and the Bears already have tons of those.

Bears are three picks away from making their 2nd round selection (45). Although several defensive backs are off the board, the Bears could target Connecticut safety Obi Melifonwu, who Chicago spent considerable time with at the Senior Bowl. The Bears have a clear need at safety, despite signing veteran Quintin Demps in free agency.

Update on Bears' remaining picks after deal with Arizona: 45, 117, 119, 147 and 197.

Jeff Dickerson ESPN Staff Writer 

In exchange for pick 36, the Bears receive from Arizona: No. 45 in 2nd round, No. 119 in 4th round, No. 197 in 6th round and a 4th rounder in 2018. Bears also give Cardinals pick 221 in 7th round.

Jeff Dickerson ESPN Staff Writer 

The Bears have traded out of 36. Arizona is now on the clock. Good strategy for Chicago after GM Ryan Pace dealt several picks to San Francisco to draft Mitchell Trubisky second overall.

Jeff Dickerson ESPN Staff Writer 

At No. 36, the Bears have needs all across the board, but there are a handful of talented safeties and cornerbacks projected to go at the top of 2nd round that might interest the Bears.

Jeff Dickerson ESPN Staff Writer 

Bears GM Ryan Pace says last night there are still other ways to improve the roster after sending multiple picks to 49ers to move up to 2 and take Mitchell Trubisky. One way is acquire more picks by perhaps trading down from No. 36 to recoup some losses from yesterday. The Bears currently do not have a 3rd round choice, but still have a 4th rounder on Saturday.

Jeff Dickerson ESPN Staff Writer 

It's been 20 hours since the Bears traded up to draft Mitchell Trubisky, but the 2nd overall pick still hasn't spoken to veteran QB Mike Glennon, who GM Ryan Pace confirmed last night remains Chicago's starting quarterback. "No, I haven't talked to Mike yet, but I'm very excited to work with him and the rest of the quarterbacks here," Trubisky said on Friday.

Trubisky: Can thrive under Chicago pressure

Quarterback Mitchell Trubisky, the Bears' No. 2 pick Thursday in the NFL draft, says he can use the pressure that will come with being a quarterback in Chicago to his advantage.

Jeff Dickerson ESPN Staff Writer 

Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky is proud of his 1997 Toyota Camry. In fact, Trubisky drove the car to meet with the Bears during his private workout/meeting with Chicago around his Pro Day. "It's a little beige color handed down from my grandmother," Trubisky said. "It's got 170,000 miles on it. It moves pretty well. Gets me from Point A to Point B."

Sources: Fox involved with process on Trubisky

While coach John Fox wasn't informed of the Chicago Bears' decision on Mitchell Trubisky until about 90 minutes before the draft, he was heavily involved in the process leading to that point.

Jeff Dickerson ESPN Staff Writer 

Mitchell Trubisky was born in 1994, but he said on Friday that growing up his favorite player was Bears' legend Walter Payton, who retired in 1987. As a kid, Trubisky read a book about Payton in the school library and was hooked after that. Trubisky -- from Ohio -- also admitted to studying other quarterbacks, but smiled when asked if he studied any Browns quarterbacks. "I like to watch other QBs, but not necessarily Cleveland QBs," Trubisky said. Wonder why.

Trubisky hopes to bring wins to Chicago (0:27)
