Chicago Bears can start offseason workout programs: April 19

Finally, the Chicago Bears will need to start preparing for the 2021 NFL Draft. Prior to the draft though, teams will start their offseason workout programs on April 19, 2021. These programs could include voluntary minicamps, OTA offseason workouts and/or mandatory minicamp. Not much for fans to get excited about here as this is all mostly internal and the camp battles will go on throughout most of the summer.

Chicago Bears must get this 2021 NFL Draft right: April 29 to May 1

Now the Chicago Bears must look to the future by drafting new players to hopefully upgrade key areas. As stated, the offensive line, specifically the offensive tackle spot, must be addressed early. Quarterback could also be included in this list depending on how the offseason plays out. Names like Trey Lance, Mac Jones and Kyle Trask will be linked to Chicago from now until draft night.

Will the team even have a first-round pick though or will they trade it away for a quarterback like Russell Wilson or Deshaun Watson? As originally discussed, the Chicago Bears have some huge holes to fill and this team must find a way to improve.

Next. Bears chances at Russell Wilson. dark

The point here is that we need to remain patient as the process plays out. Ryan Pace and Matt Nagy must find a way to improve this team, but there are certain dates set in place that the team must abide by. What big offseason moves are you looking forward to most?
