Trubisky has only one year of starting experience and still has another year of eligibility left in the collegiate ranks. He doesn’t plan on making an announcement concerning his declaring for the NFL draft until after his bowl game with the North Carolina Tar Heels on December 30th at 12 PM against the Stanford Cardinal.

Receiving this kind of grad can only push Trubisky in one direction, though.

While some players recently have been opting to sit out their final game over concerned that it might hurt their NFL draft stock, Trubisky faces a much more lasting decision.

With the chance of being taken in the first round as only a junior, he might find himself searching for reasons to continue to play for free.
