The Chicago Bears draft coverage never stops

If you have been following my draft series for the Chicago Bears players to watch, you will know that I truly feel the Chicago Bears do not have a starting quarterback on the roster. That is the number one thing that needs to change.

That does not mean that the Chicago Bears need to reach on a future franchise quarterback. They have been doing that for years. The Clevland Browns have been doing that for years.  Let’s not argue who the general manager will be. Let’s focus on the prospects.

I tend to anger some of the Chicago Bears fan base with my opinion of Allen Robinson, but we can all agree that he and the team are not on the same page for resigning him. Regardless, the receiving core that was revamped is about to become depleted. With Anthony Miller not becoming the game-breaker many expected him to become and, Allen Robinson set up to be on a different team next season, the Bears will be in the market.

Darnell Mooney has shown some promise while Javon Wims has shown he is not talented enough to have fought on the field, and Riley Ridley has barely seen the field. I have shared my thoughts on what outstanding receivers can do. If you follow my mocks, you knew I was very high on Chase Claypool. This year might be a year that the Chicago Bears need to go after that big-name receiver. While I haven’t seen as many sleepers, let’s get into it.
