5 big winners from Chicago Bears 2023 NFL draft
The NFL draft is a big moment for the players drafted but obviously impacts the entire roster. Some players walk away from draft weekend losers, and other current players may walk away as winners. Who are some players on the Chicago Bears that may look back on this weekend and think that they are winners?
5. Justin Fields is getting the support he needs from the Chicago Bears
There are two ways that you can frame this depending on how you feel about Justin Fields, and both of them go down the same road. If you believe in Justin Fields you are saying that Fields is finally getting some help. If you do not believe in Justin Fields, the thought is that he is now running out of excuses. Both of them lead to the idea that we will know so much more about what Justin Fields can actually do in the NFL after this season.
This past season the Chicago Bears picked first overall despite him starting every game. Quarterbacks went first and second this year, and the Bears had a chance to move on and did not. They actually used that number one overall pick to add D.J. Moore and Darnell Wright, both players to help Fields.
Beyond that, they added Roschon Johnson and Tyler Scott on day three to boost the depth of the room. Between Johnson, Khalil Herbert, Travis Homer, and D'Onta Foreman, the running back room is deeper, and that is with the loss of David Montgomery.
Dante Pettis and Equanimeous St. Brown were the top two wideouts for most of last season and now they are the two who will be competing on the fringe of the roster. Things changed and the Chicago Bears now have given him a lot more. Is this group enough to win it all next year? Probably not, but it surely is enough to make a clean evaluation of Justin Fields.
