The 2017 NFL Draft is just a few days away and of course, there is a lot of speculation about who the Bears are looking to draft. Quarterbacks, safeties and defensive linemen are being thrown out as possibilities. But who should the Bears really take in this year’s draft?
With the 2017 NFL Draft approaching, the Chicago Bears, along with the other 31 teams, are getting ready to make some important decisions. We all know that the Bears need a lot of help in several different areas. There are needs at quarterback, defensive line, safety and at the offensive tackle position. Don’t forget about the cornerback position. There are more needs than there are draft picks.
The Bears have worked out several players over the last few weeks and have taken an interest in some of the big name quarterbacks. This, in addition to Watson. They have talked with DeShone Kizer and Patrick Mahomes. Chicago has also looked at other players at other positions. They have brought in guys like safety Jamal Adams, tight end O.J. Howard and cornerback Marshon Lattimore. They have done their due diligence going through these visits, the pro day workouts, and the combine.
The time to make a decision is almost here.
It’s easy to see what Chicago’s needs are. They need help at quarterback, safety, offensive tackle, cornerback and tight end. Most, if not all of these positions need new starters. They could also use depth on the defensive line, wide receiver and maybe even at outside linebacker. That would be a plus.
Or do the Bears go for the player that is the best available when it’s their turn to draft? There are so many options they can have. They just need to make the right decision for their future.
The science of making a mock draft is never precise. It’s just your best guess and that is all it can be. We never really know what a team is going to do but sure is fun to guess.
So, taking my best guess, here is my final mock draft of the season just before we say goodbye to the speculation and take hold of the reality.
