The Chicago Bears could end up with Nick Foles and a mid-round rookie

Remember when Ryan Pace once said that he would draft a quarterback every year if it meant getting the position corrected? It’s sure funny how times have changed because that idea never panned out — unless Pace thought Trubisky was the sure-fire answer for the past four seasons.

The Bears have a few significant needs they could address at the top of the draft. Sticking with Foles for the 2021 season is not as crazy as it sounds if you’re Ryan Pace.

At number 20 overall, there is a chance that five quarterbacks have already gone. If the Bears decided not to trade up, they would then shift their attention to an offensive lineman, most likely. Then, in the second round, there could be some very good receivers still available.

Pace loves finding his gems in the middle rounds, and maybe he decides to go the route of a Jamie Newman or Davis Mills while attacking other positions of need early on.

If the Bears went this route, you can pretty much throw the season away in 2021. Obviously, a mid-round rookie could end up shocking the world and taking the job from Foles and playing really well. Anything is possible.

But, in all likelihood, that doesn’t happen and Foles is the Bears’ starter for the entirety of this upcoming season. The Bears can’t afford a project or a kid who needs to sit for a year or two. This isn’t an option.
