Winner: Teven Jenkins, G

Here's the thing. If the value was right in Round 2 or 3 and the Bears had a pick, don't think Ryan Poles wouldn't have pulled the trigger on the right interior offensive lineman. He took a tackle in the third, putting Braxton Jones' job in jeopardy. And, the additions of Coleman Shelton and Ryan Bates were more to fix the center position, not guard.

Teven Jenkins' tenure with the Bears has given him anything but security, so the fact that Chicago didn't add any legitimate starting option at the guard position makes Jenkins a big winner. It could also mean that this season is a huge opportunity for Jenkins to prove he deserves an extension with the team.

Loser: Tyler Scott, WR

The Bears couldn't have a better human being on the roster than a guy like Tyler Scott. Having spoken to him personally, I can vouch for the person he is. Unfortunately, the additions of both Keenan Allen and Rome Odunze have pushed him back to fourth on the depth chart with D.J. Moore already being in Chicago, too.

Scott's time may come next year, if the Bears don't re-sign Allen. But, for now, he'll have to continue waiting.
