A look at some of the options the Bears will have with the 7th pick in the NFL Draft.
After finding their GM and head coach, assuming John Fox is the guy, the Chicago Bears will shift their focus to improving the roster of an underachieving 5-11 team. Come late-April, the front office will not have to travel very far in order to do that.
With this year’s NFL Draft set to make its Chicago debut, Ryan Pace and his crew will only have to make a thirty-five mile trek south to start rebuilding the charter franchise. Thanks to the Phil Emery’s ineptitude, the team will be trying to improve the same positions as last offseason.
With the seventh pick in the draft, the Bears will have plenty of options: from pass-rushing defensive ends to hard-hitting safeties, let’s take a look at some of the players that might be available.
Despite spending more money on this position than any other in the last offseason, the Bears still struggled mightily with their pass rush. Apparently Jared Allen saved all his calf-roping for his professional bull riding, because the veteran defensive end was basically a non-factor last year.
