Mitchell Trubisky's third season in the NFL has gotten off to a disastrous start. Despite having one of the most talented rosters in the NFL, the Chicago Bears are sitting at 3-5 after losing to the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 9.

A lot of that certainly falls on Trubisky, but Chicago doesn't have a first-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, making it much tougher for the Bears to look for a replacement. Should they decide to go that route, here are three quarterbacks the Bears could target in the second round of the draft.

1. Jake Fromm, Georgia Bulldogs

Jake Fromm is widely regarded as one of the most pro-ready QBs in the 2020 class. His ceiling may not be as high as someone like Tua Tagovailoa or Justin Herbert's, but he's a sound decision maker, having thrown 11 touchdowns to three interceptions. If Fromm slips out of the first round, he could be a great fit for a Chicago offense that is really in need of some stability at QB.

2. Jacob Eason, Washington Huskies

Unlike Fromm, most of Jacob Eason's appeal is about what he could become, rather than what he is right now. While Fromm ultimately beat out Eason for the starting job at Georgia, it's hard not to like Eason, who possesses prototypical size (6' 6") to compliment an absolute rocket of an arm. Eason's ability to push the ball downfield could add an entirely new element to Chicago's offensive attack, and he'd be a worthwhile gamble for the Bears.

3. Jalen Hurts, Oklahoma Sooners

Jalen Hurts has had one of the strangest collegiate careers in recent memory. After losing the starting job at Alabama to Tagovailoa, Hurts transferred to Oklahoma and has instantly become a Heisman candidate under Lincoln Riley's tutelage. Primarily known as a runner with the Crimson Tide, Hurts' arm has taken many people by surprise this season. He's thrown 2,469 passing yards, with 21 TDs to just three INTs on the year. He's on pace to set new career high's in just about every single passing category, but his legs still make him one of the most unique prospects in the class, with 801 rushing yards and 13 TDs on the ground thus far. Bears head Matt Nagy has had success using Trubisky as a runner in the past, and Hurts could be dangerous from day one in that system.
