2. Chicago Bears do not need a Running back /

This one is pretty simple. In fact, to make it even spicier, they would not even be in a position to draft a running back if they traded David Montgomery for more draft capital. The Chicago Bears do not have many positions that you would define as deep, but this is one of them.

It starts with the reality that the owner talked up David Montgomery to the point where he is more likely to get extended than traded. Still, even if he were, it would mean that the new regime was excited with Khalil Herbert in the draft last year, and loved what he did in limited time last year.

Beyond the number two runner being a potential starter in talent, they have a number three runner who is probably locked onto the roster.

Darrynton Evans is flying under the radar, but this is a former third-round pick in the 2020 NFL draft, and a player the Bears claimed on waivers. Ryan Poles has been aggressive in ways but calculated in how he has added his players, so the waiver claim in Evans shows serious interest.

He is the return man, the third-down pass catcher, and the lighting type of speed threat. He is a great compliment to what the room already has. If they traded Montgomery, the duo of Evans and Hebert would be fine, although a veteran may be added for depth.

Still, a UDFA or two should come into competing in camp, and that should wrap up the running back room.
