Ryan Poles took over a team that was in a bad spot. Ryan Pace spent all of the Chicago Bears’ money, used all of their future picks, and moved on from a roster that is not ready to compete. With that in mind, the Chicago Bears have more needs than they have assets to fix their holes.

While the team would love to go with the best player available strategy that always makes sense, this is not quite the time for that. They will have to have a more targeted approach to fill needs and find players at impact positions.

That means waiting on other positions. While the team has so many holes they could draft any position, they will not be drafting players from these three spots.

3. Edge pass rusher

Despite trading Khalil Mack, the team actually does not really need help on the edges. Robert Quinn is not going to be traded, despite speculation. There are plenty of reasons why, but one reason that Mack was traded and Quinn was not is that there was a log jam in front of Trevis Gipson.

The Mack trade was not a firesale, but rather opening a spot for Gipson. Behind Gipson, the team went out and signed Al-Quadin Mohammed this offseason. AQM, as we will call him is coming from the Indianapolis Colts, and would be classified as one of Matt Eberflus’ guys.

So, they have the top three spots locked up. They could cut Jeremiah Attaochu, but as a fourth edge rusher, that is a pretty good spot to be in. He is solid depth at number four, and while other teams may have him higher on their depth chart, the role is probably best for him here in Chicago.

Considering they have four edge rushers who all are veterans with experience it is hard to see them adding to this spot. They have far too many needs at far too many other holes.
