Key FA signings:
  • Brian Burns - Edge
  • Evam Brown - G/C
  • Van Jefferson - WR
  • Colby Parkinson - TE
Draft:

R1 #2 (from Commanders): Marvin Harrison Jr, WR, Ohio State
Bears receive #2, #101, and Jonathan Allen / Washington receives #1 and #110

Washington moves up to take Williams and the Bears take one of the best WR prospects in recent history to pair with DJ Moore, Jefferson, and Scott. This should help answer any future questions about Justin Fields.

R1 #13 (from Raiders): Cooper DeJean, DB, Iowa
Bears receive #13, #44, 2025 3rd round / Raiders receive #9

DeJean is a multi-purpose phenom that can play corner or safety, as well as return punts. The Bears have a potential hole at safety if Eddie Jackson is let go.

R2 #44 (from Raiders): Jackson Powers-Johnson, OL, Oregon

Even if the Bears do as I expect and sign Evan Brown, he’s really just a better version of Lucas Patrick. The Bears need a long-term solution at the position.

R3 #75: Jaylen Wright, RB, Tennessee

The Bears had a good stable of backs in 2023, but Foreman is likely gone, Herbert is entering a contract year, and Homer doesn’t offer much outside of special teams. Johnson has shown a lot of promise, but the offense needs a home run hitter. Wright is that guy. With 4.3 speed, he also runs with a surprising amount of violence. He would be an excellent playmaking addition to the backfield.

R3 #101 (from Commanders): Myles Cole, EDGE, Texas Tech

Cole is an interesting prospect. He’s a little stiff, but he’s a natural athlete that is incredibly powerful with a nonstop motor. He can also rotate inside, which we all know the Bears like to do with their heavier ends.

R4 #123: Isaiah Adams, OL, Illinois

Adams has positional flexibility and has flashed exceptional pass blocking talent. He does have issues with his feet…they get a little too heavy at times, and he has a tendency to play too upright, but he’s still pretty raw.

R5 #143: Jordan Travis, QB, Florida State

If the Bears do keep Fields, as I hope, I would still like them to take a QB…no offense to Bagent, but Travis is just a better prospect. He falls because he’s coming off of an injury, but his improvisational skills, accuracy, and quick release would have likely put him in the 2nd or 3rd rounds.

Here's what I have:

FA Signings
Tyler Boyd, WR
Lloyd Cushenberry, OC
Xavier McKinney, S
Mike Dana, DE

Draft
1. Caleb Williams, QB- just don't see Poles coming off this now. He wants a QB he drafted.

Trade- #9 and swap of 3rd round picks to Philly for #22, #50, #53

Trade- Justin Fields and 3rd in 2025 to Denver for #12 . (Denver and Payton can't wait for a draft pick to develop so they give up alot to get best available, ready, QB)

#12- Jared Verse, DE
#22- Brian Thomas Jr., WR
#50- Ricky Pearsall, WR
#53- Ja'Tavian Sanders, TE
3rd Round- Javon Foster, OL
4th(a)- Tanor Bartollini, OC/OG
4th(b)- Kiton Oladapo, S
5th- Jahdae Barron, S

Heavy on offense but fill our two D needs with DE and safety. Personally, I feel if we sign Jones again, we are good at DL. Also need to find a blocking TE but that shouldn't be priority.
