Chicago Bears 2018 NFL Draft War Room

The Chicago Bears are trying to surround Mitchell Trubisky with a robust supporting cast. The problem is the Bears are going to face the harsh reality that Trubisky isn’t a franchise quarterback and never will be. Until then, the Bears are trying their best to implement a gimmick offense with new head coach Matt Nagy coming in to lead the franchise. Allen Robinson and Trey Burton were brought in to fix the offense but will it be enough to massively improve the team in 2018? What can we expect from the Chicago Bears in the 2018 NFL Draft?

Holding the 8th pick in the draft, offensive line figures to be a spot the Bears are targeting. Despite being a solid player, Chicago released Josh Sitton this offseason. Maybe they plan on replacing him with Notre Dame guard Quenton Nelson? The Notre Dame product is regarded as a generational offensive line prospect. If one thing is certain, Nelson will bring a nasty edge that is missing from the Bears. Chicago has already brought in outside weapons to help their young quarterback. The running backs with Jordan Howard and Tarik Cohen are also set up. The offensive line has to be the target.

Once offensive line is taken care off, the defense is going to be the focal point. Edge rusher is something that needs to be addressed. Pernell McPhee was released and Leonard Floyd really needs a sidekick. Let’s pair him with another Georgia guy in Lorenzo Carter. Lorenzo Carter has huge upside as a former 5-star prospect from high school. Carter burst onto the scene as a Senior and really started to put it together. He beat the snot out of Mike McGlinchey when Georgia played Notre Dame this year. Carter was also a standout at the combine and ran a really fast 40 time.

Why Mitchell Trubisky Is Destined To Fail In The NFL

Chicago does not have a third-round pick because of the Trubisky trade. With the remaining draft picks, Chicago needs to get more secondary help. Kyle Fuller is really the only corner they have and that needs to be an area they address.
