Trubisky says he's the guy you want to lead your franchise

Mitchell Trubisky had his Pro Day on Tuesday and was impressive

There was a lot of buzz on social media Tuesday morning when it was learned that neither Hue Jackson or Sashi Brown were attending Mitchell Trubisky's Pro Day at North Carolina. 

However, it was reported that no head coaches were in attendance. The Browns have said they would rather work out the players individually and put them through their own workout, as opposed to the scripted one at the Pro Days. The Browns did have members of their personnel and scouting department in attendance. Neither Jackson or Brown were in attendance at DeShaun Watson's Pro Day last week.

The Browns first three picks are No. 1, No. 12 and No. 33 and are likely considering Trubisky with one of their high picks. 

After his workout, Trubisky told reporters he is confident he can be the leader and face of a franchise.

“Once you get to know me and you sit down with me, you start to pick my brain, I’ll pick yours, and you just know that I’m a football guy,” Trubisky said. “I love the game, I’m a student of the game, I’m a very quick learner. I am that guy you want in that locker room. I am that guy you want to lead your franchise.”

Unofficially, Trubisky threw outside and was 56-for-65 with three drops and ESPN draft analyst Todd McShay said it was a better showing than Watson's was. 

Trubisky (6-2 1/8, 222) threw for 3,748 yards, including 30 touchdowns and six interceptions in 13 starts last season, completing 68.2 percent of his passes.

Trubisky, who said he has private workouts scheduled with the Browns, Jets, 49ers and Chiefs among others. He also said he thought his Pro Day went well.

“Obviously I would want a couple back, but that’s football,” he said. “I thought we showed what I needed to show.”
