The Chicago Bears have more than a few holes

I spent a lot more on two quarterbacks than I expected. Honestly, If anybody is talking to Ryan Pace, he should not reach in round one for a quarterback. This could be a historical year for quarterbacks. How many times has there ever been a quarterback class that you can find a starting-caliber one in the first three rounds? This year could potentially be like combining the quarterback draft classes of 2017 and 2018.

Ryan Pace needs to grab an offensive tackle early or possibly a wide receiver if Allen Robinson isn’t retained. Then Pace can look for a quarterback in round two. While everybody else is trading up for Wilson, Lance, and Trask, Pace needs to wait it out. The Eagles might have found something more promising than the Packers, who traded up in the first round for their quarterback. Destroy me if you want, but I feel that Jalen Hurts will be a better quarterback than Jordan Love.

I will talk offensive line at some point, I promise. I understand the need for it, and I agree the offensive line needs help. Well, the tackles need help. I honestly think the interior will be just fine. The Chicago Bears might have found a starting-caliber center in Sam Mustipher.

Next. Don't trade up for Trevor Lawrence. dark

With Mustipher, Whitehair, and Daniels on the inside, the Chicago Bears need to find at least one tackle that is great in the draft. Two would be great, but we need to be realistic. If two were found, this team would win the NFC.  That’s how rare it is to find two tackles in one draft.
