This weekend, the Chicago Bears have an opportunity to see some Senior Bowl quarterbacks who could find their way onto the roster in 2021.

Head coach Matt Nagy and general manager Ryan Pace have quite the offseason ahead of them, and it all revolves around this all-important position: quarterback. If the Bears don’t get this right, both Nagy and Pace will be gone next year. Not to mention, this team’s future will be set back quite a bit.

The Bears currently have a roster with pieces in place to win right now. Not every team in the NFL has talent like Khalil Mack, Akiem Hicks and Roquan Smith on defense while having some decent weapons on offense. If all goes according to plan, the Bears will work it out with Allen Robinson so that he can line up with Darnell Mooney in 2021.

Combined with their recently-found run game and David Montgomery breaking out, the Bears’ offense really isn’t that far away. Again, all it’s missing is a capable quarterback.

Now, Nick Foles maybe around another year or two unless he’s traded or the Bears simply cut their losses. But, in the event the Bears look to upgrade their backup quarterback position in the near future, this 2021 Senior Bowl is crucial in that respect as well.

The Bears could come away with not just one, but two quarterbacks in this draft class. Whether that’s drafting two or signing one as an undrafted free agent, they could find a pair of quarterbacks in this group, and both may end up coming from the handful of seniors on display this Saturday.

With the draft in mind, Bears fans should keep their eyes on a few quarterbacks, in particular, this weekend.
