The Chicago Bears, like every other team in the NFL, are starting to put their draft boards together in attempt to figure out who they should draft. They have needs at a variety of positions and some positions are much needier than others. Who can help fill those needs for the Bears? What players, in the first round, could the Bears be interested in?
The Chicago Bears have not had the opportunity to pick this high in the draft for a very long time. This is a golden opportunity for them to do something good and get a high impact player that can make a difference. This player needs to not only make an instant impact but keep making an impact for the next few years. To think, they will have an opportunity to pick just about any player in the draft. That’s big.
And this is an opportunity that they can’t afford to not take advantage of. Granted, it’s not great to be in a position to have your pick of almost any player in a draft but when you do get that chance, you should make the most of it.
If you listen the media these days, you will see that everyone has an
opinion on who the Bears should select in the first round of the draft, including this writer. They have a lot of needs and those needs could be impacted by one strong first round player. But who should they select? There are a lot of choices.
Experts are throwing out names like Jonathan Allen, Mitch Trubisky and Jabrill Peppers as possibilities for the Bears at number three. Yes, they can be included in the conversation but there are others that the Bears might be interested in. They are all guys that the Bears could have success with if they selected them.
We are going to look at five prospects the Bears could take in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft. Let’s assume that the Bears may also move down in the first round. Why? Because some of these players shouldn’t be taken with the third pick in the first round. Instead, the Bears could trade down to grab one of these guys. Who would your top pick be?
