Here is a look back at the Chicago Bears 2014 NFL Draft class and how those players have impacted the team.
The Bears were coming off of an 8-8 record in 2014. It was Marc Trestman’s first season as the Bears head coach and things were looking up. General Manager Phil Emery had a draft where he could bring in some additional talent to work with and help get the team to the playoffs. There were a lot of opportunities. The team was seemingly heading down the right path.
We are sitting here in 2017 now so how did the 2014 NFL Draft turn out three years later? How many of those guys are still with the Bears? How many of them are in the NFL? Did any of them see any success?
Everyone knows how well Phil Emery drafted when he was with the Bears and the team is still paying the price for his ability to evaluate talent. The 2014 NFL Draft, for Emery had some wins but the jury is still sort of out on most of the players that he drafted. Even after three years, when you are supposed to have an idea about how players did, we still don’t have a clear consensus on how his draft turned out.
Surprisingly, there are still several players from that 2014 draft on the Bear’s roster today. We will see how those players are doing in this player-by-player look at the 2014 NFL Draft for the Chicago Bears.
You know that none of the players drafted that year are considered stars or even players the team can’t live without? Not one player really stands out in this group.
Let’s take a look at the eight players that were drafted in the 2014 NFL Draft, how they have fared over the last three seasons, where they are now and what they could do in the future.
