2. Offensive Tackle

Ryan Pace cannot go a third offseason without an offensive line investment. He cannot pretend a decent starting five with no depth is good enough. This year, his focus must be tackle.

He may have been thrown a bone late in the season. With Sam Mustipher excelling at center, and Cody Whitehair always being better at guard, he may have found a duo to start next year. Add in Alex Bars and James Daniels and he has depth at guard.

At tackle, Germain Ifedi is a free agent and Bobby Massie will be let go as he has age and injury questions. They cannot run it back with Ifedi and think that Bars could slide to tackle with Daniels. That would leave them in the same spot of having all the names filled, but not having the adequate depth.

It would leave them an injury away from shuffling the whole deck again. The Chicago Bears need depth on the offensive line. No, not Arlington Hambright in round 7 depth, an actual tackle who can start. Even if you want to bring back Ifedi, do it as depth, or to compete with another free agent tackle. The Chicgao Bears cannot slack on the line anymore.
