 Granted, the season isn’t over yet, but it’s never too early to look at what the Chicago Bears need in the 2018 NFL draft.

The 2017 NFL season is just a few weeks away from being over and one thing is certain. The Bears won’t be going to the playoffs or winning that many more games. This team needs help in so many areas it’s hard to even to know where to start.

The disappointing play of this team over the past few years has several causes. Some of the issues can be laid in the lap of ownership and management. Of course, coaching has a lot to do with the issues the Bears are seeing. Then you have the players. The Bears have some guys that you would be hard-pressed to find playing on other NFL teams.

This team needs a lot of help and the draft is the best place to start.

The 2018 NFL Draft will be a place the Bears can find some help and start moving in the right direction. They have some big needs and, with some great scouting and decision-making, can find some future help in the draft. Honestly, Ryan Pace has been doing a decent job at drafting and should be able to handle another draft in Chicago.

But this draft needs to be done right. The Bears need a lot of help and must start moving in the right direction. They can do that and should have been doing that with their college scouting department to prepare for the future.

Let’s look at five areas of need the Bears have right now, listed in no order, and what could be done about them. We will talk about why the position is a position of need and come up with three possible picks for each. These players are considered some of the best at their position.
