2. Running back

The Damien Williams signing made this a pretty clear lock. Williams opted out last season for COVID-related reasons, While missing the past season is not great, there is a reason to believe that he will be just fine next season. Especially in his role as a depth RB who is taking the load off of David Montgomery.

Tarik Cohen should be back from his injury and Montgomery is obviously the man. This one is pretty clear. They do not even need to carry a fourth running back if they do not want to. However, if they want a return man Cordarrelle Patterson remains unsigned.

The Bears could add a UDFA here, but even Artavis Pierce and Ryan Nall are UDFAs with experience. There is no rhyme or reason for the Chicago Bears to draft a running back.
