Bears 2018 rookie class graded as one of best in NFL

Quote:
Ryan Pace’s success in the NFL draft has been a big reason for the Bears success.

The team’s home-grown talent is developing and bolstering the roster on both side of the ball, even in their first season.

The 2018 class of rookies produced a few starters and a few more regular contributors, receiving an “A-minus” grade from NFL.com’s rookie grades.

“Few clubs reaped a better haul from the first two rounds of the 2018 draft than Chicago,” Jeremy Bergman wrote.

The writer was complimentary of the Bears first three picks in particular, with Roquan Smith, James Daniels and Anthony Miller all playing big roles in the team’s breakout season.

I'd wager that this is the best three year stretch of drafts the Bears have had in their modern NFL history.

well, you have to admit that the Bears successful drafting bar wasn't really set that high ... that said, the past couple of draft classes have been exceptional and the failed efforts of previous regimes doesn't take away from that

What year are you considering the beginning of the modern football era? I'm mostly only asking for perspective on your comment.

Free agency era. So 1993.

Could be. 98-00 had some big hits too. Urlacher, Mike Brown, Edinger, Marty Booker, Holdman, Colvin, Tony Parrish, Olin.

Problem was the early picks included Mcnown and Enis. Could have been phenomenal if they’d hit on those.

Pace was suspect his first year, but has been strong since. Now that he and the coach share the same vision of the team he should do even better. 2021 draft will be stud filled.

It's one of the first ones in recent memory where right after the draft everyone seemed to be really excited and then to have it play out the way we all expected - was also very gratifying. I think most draft media outlets had the Bears anywhere from an A's to A minuses and then when the Bears actually took the field, Smith, Daniels and Miller were terrific contributors and the future is extremely bright for them.

Compared to the last 5 drafts prior to Pace's arrival, he is a freaking rock star.

Overall I would say he has done well and is trending into the upper tier of the league GM's at this point.
