Honestly, at this point, it's going to be kind of a bummer when the Bears start having to actually play the games. The last month has been one of the best for Chicago in a long time – getting your franchise QB and WR of the future is great, but the constant stream of praise for that has been just as good. Gone are the days of rolling the dice on a tight end from Ashland University with a Top-50 pick.

And you know everything's coming up Bears when the team's getting a ton of praise for picks that didn't even happen on Thursday night. Any time the league is impressed with making a developmental pick out of the Ivy League, you know you're on a bit of a heater. And, reader, the Bears are on a bit of a heater.

Bears had one of NFL Draft's biggest steals according to latest ESPN intel

The latest bit of gloatable news comes via ESPN's Jeremy Fowler. Fowler published a big NFL Draft piece on Tuesday title, "Key intel on all 32 teams after the 2024 NFL draft," and in it, reported that more than one person he talked with loved the Bears' third round pick the most. They're never losing again!!

"The Bears' two first-round picks (Caleb Williams and Rome Odunze) were all about splash, but the third-round pick will be dear to general manager Ryan Poles' heart. Poles is a former Boston College offensive lineman whose first high pick at the position, last year's first-rounder Darnell Wright, has star potential..."

"The selection of Yale tackle Kiran Amegadjie at No. 75 overall in 2024 has high upside. Multiple scouts say Amegadjie could have been a top-45 pick if not for a quad injury that thwarted his participation in the Senior Bowl."

High upside! Top-45 pick! These scouts that definitely don't all work for the Bears sure do have a lot of good things to say about Poles, who's definitely not their boss. At this point, four of the Bears' fives picks have received almost-universal praise; no one even made fun of them for taking a punter in the 4th round. Super Bowl titles are one thing, but the Internet's approval? That's the real reward.
