Chicago Bears Mock Draft 1.0: Predicting the First Three Rounds

Way back in November, I wrote what I called a “way too early” draft article, which focused on the Bears needing a left tackle and a wide receiver. Since then, a lot has changed.

A Way Too Soon Look at 2018 Chicago Bears Draft Picks

It figures, right? The year after the Bears go out and make a move to draft their franchise QB just happens to be a banner year for QBs coming out of college. One GM that won’t be taking a QB in the first round is Ryan Pace, who has pitted his legacy on the right... Read more »

Bears Fans Left Cold After Feeling This Draft

Chicago Bears GM Ryan Pace did the impossible. He made something that is already a gamble into much more of a risk by trading three draft picks to move up one spot in order to take Mitchell Trubisky with the second overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft.

I used to think the only sure things in life were death and taxes. But then ESPN’s Adam Schefter came along. If there’s one thing a sports fan can count on in life, it’s the veracity of his reporting. That’s why it’s big news that the man is saying that the Patriots will not be... Read more »

Bob's Mock Draft 4.0: Predicting the Bears First Four Rounds

Like my previous three mocks, I am predicating these picks based on the premise that Chicago is not going to trade for a young QB, such as AJ McCarron or the oft-rumored Jimmy Garappolo. If they do, then obviously it would affect the draft in many ways, both in terms of potential lost draft selections... Read more »

Pitchers and catchers report in less than two weeks, but we’re talking football here. Why? Because it’s a Bears town and these Bears have what may be their most important draft in quite some time.
