The NFL Draft rumor mill is in full swing, which means we will have plenty of contradictory reports regarding the top prospects. One of those prospects is UNC quarterback Mitch Trubisky, who many believe could be the first signal-caller off the board next month.
While most of the feedback on Trubisky has been positive, NFL Films producer Greg Cosell has done his part to cast doubt about Trubisky’s ability to succeed at the next level.
Cosell shared his evaluation of Trubisky in which he said the former Tar Heel is “not a high-level talent prospect.”
The report points out that Trubisky “a lot of flaws in his mechanics.”

Of course, while Cosell is highly respected, this is just one opinion out of many.
It’s easy to understand Cosell’s concerns, however, due to a lack of film from the one-year starter. And with the concerns over Trubisky, Cosell believes his success will come down to a matter of how well he fits the offensive scheme.
Do you agree with Cosell that Trubisky could be limited as a prospect? Would you risk a high first-round pick on him? Sound off in the comments below with your thoughts.
