There is enough negativity with the Chicago Bears. After looking into what could possibly go wrong, let us take some time to look into how it could possibly go right. What would be some of the best outcomes from the Bears first day of the 2021 NFL Draft?

5. Greg Newsome, CB, Northwestern

Greg Newsome was born in Chicago and is the first true junior to declare for the NFL draft in the Northwestern program since 1996. Newsome would be a fun pick for the local flare, but it does go beyond that. Newsome can play.

What makes Newsome so valuable is that he is technically refined and is sound in both man and zone. He is patient in his feet and reads routes as well as any corner in the draft. Beyond that, he tested out of the gym and had a great day to solidify he can run with the fastest players in the league.

It is fair to note that we dinged Caleb Farley for his back injury, but Greg Newsome is on this list despite missing time each season with differing injuries. This is fair, but the same occurring injury has to be considered worse, especially with a back, and Farley is currently out, while we just saw that Newsome is unaffected, and testing like a great athlete. Farley is also a year and a half older.

Beyond that, Newsome may just be the better player on video. He was more scheme versatile and calmer in his movements. Farley is a bit taller and longer, but not really the better corner. If the Chicago Bears go, cornerback, Patrick Surtain, Jaycee Horn, and Greg Newsome are the only 3 worth of the top 20 pick that Chicago holds.
