Well, here's one.

The Bears select with their first 6th round pick:

David Fales, QB, San Jose State (6'2", 212 lbs)

Nfl.com Draft Profile

17-8 in 25 starts, 4,000+ yards in each of the 2012 and 2013 seasons.

Per NFl.com, some strengths in his size, build, compact quick release, good short to intermediate accuracy, with some touch.  Durable, great character, leads by example and is smart football junkie who wants to get better.

However, some weaknesses - not quite the height you'd want with small hands.  Feet and movement average, tends to stare down a guy.  Not a natural deep thrower, and much less accurate downfield. Could use some work reading and learning defenses.

In 2012 Fales led the nation in completion percentage, executing a QB friendly system. Does that sound familiar at all?  Trestman's system seems like it could be a strong fit for a young, cerebral quarterback.  Expect to see him firmly entrenched at the third spot, as the "veteran" presence of Jordan Palmer still seems to be the preferred modus operandi for Marc Trestman

Highlight tape:

What do you think, Chicago Bears fans?  QB of the future? The next Tom Brady?
