The Chicago Bears look to move in a new direction with this draft strategy

After a tough showing in the NFC Wildcard, the Chicago Bears are now in familiar territory. Even though they made the postseason this year, the feelings are all too similar to how the 2019 campaign ended. After all, both seasons saw the Bears finish 8-8.

But, now, the Bears have a real chance to make a change.

No one knows what will happen with the front office or coaching staff, but the one thing that’s for certain is that the Bears will not enter the 2021 season with the same people holding the same positions they did this past season.

Head coach Matt Nagy is certainly a candidate to see his way out of Halas Hall, as are both of his coordinators Bill Lazor and Chuck Pagano. Those are the situations that will be resolved much sooner than any personnel decisions.

As far as this roster goes, the Bears have some impactful personnel decisions to make. What will happen with wide receiver Allen Robinson, whose contract expires this offseason? How about the quarterback situation? Do the Bears re-sign Mitchell Trubisky to a short-term deal?

There are a lot of scenarios that could come to fruition. Maybe Nagy and Trubisky both leave. Maybe, Nagy stays and gets to pick his next quarterback. One may depend upon the other.

Once the staffing gets figured out, though, it’ll be time to prepare for free agency and the 2021 NFL Draft. The Bears have seven picks this year, missing their fourth-rounder but having two in the sixth. Starting in the first round, we go through an intriguing draft strategy where the Bears go all-in on finding their next quarterback.
