What Is Still Left For The Chicago Bears Entering Day Two Of The NFL Draft

I am not sure what the Chicago Bears would have done had they traded up yesterday, but wow, was that another crazy first day of the NFL draft.

We saw the Jaguars surprise us, and Detriot led the way with a solid draft class, thanks to Jacksonville.

Most Bears fans were expecting to see a receiver fall to the second round that shouldn’t. That didn’t happen. Most wanted to see players like Tyler Smith and Cole Strange be available on day two.

That is the beauty of the NFL draft. We can guess all we want, but everybody has a different opinion on players. What we think should happen is never what happens.

Try not to fear, though; the Chicago Bears have plenty of talent available when day two starts. George Pickens, Christian Watson, and Skyy Moore are still available.

Defensive backs like Kyler Gordon, Andrew Booth Jr, Jaquan Brisker, and Jalen Pitre are all waiting to get plucked and show teams they belong in the first round.

What If The Chicago Bears Change Up?

Something that I never thought about was positional talent value. What if the Chicago Bears look at positions that were not touched to get the most talented players for that position?

I am talking about tight end and running back. Ryan Poles said he plans to build through the draft. What if David Montgomery’s time has come to a close?

What if Cole Kmet isn’t viewed as the Robert Tonyan or George Kittle that some have perceived? Jeremy Ruckert, Trey McBride, Breece Hall, and Kenneth Walker III did not have any of their position groups called on day one.

I don’t suggest that the Bears make a move on those players (minus Walker III), but we have to be honest about Poles. We don’t know what he would do in an NFL draft.

I’ll try and keep the Malik Willis talk to a minimum, but the Bears did interview him during the NFL combine. It is always exciting to be a Bears fan during a regime change.

We get to see a new vision and execution. If Poles really does want to build through the trenches, these players should be high on his radar:

  1. Bernhard Raimann

  2. Daniel Faalele

  3. Luke Goedeke

  4. Lecitus Smith

  5. Logan Hall

  6. Travis Jones

  7. DeMarvin Leal

The Chicago Bears need to build this team the way they see fit. If that means not taking a receiver on day two, then so be it. Trust the process.

The Bears are Ryan Poles’ team now. The Bears should try and win now and in the future. I can never get on board with tanking. Having high draft capital isn’t always the answer.

Drafting the correct players and the right quarterback is still the best chance any team has to have a successful franchise. Cheers to you Poles, and may the draft gods be with you.
