Chicago Bears draft rumors

The Bears have a lot of work to do if they want to be Super Bowl contenders in 2021. Nailing the No. 20 pick in the NFL Draft is key for Chicago. 

Nothing is more important for the Bears’ offseason than making the right decision about Mitchell Trubisky. It’s time for Chicago to either fully commit to him as their starting quarterback of the present or make a big move to find a player who can replace him.

If the Bears do move on from Trubisky, they may be tempted to use their first round pick in April’s NFL Draft to find his successor. That selection won’t be high enough to land an elite prospect like Trevor Lawrence, Justin Fields, or Zach Wilson. It may, however, be good enough to land a signal-caller in the next tier of this year’s class.

Chicago might also contemplate using their first rounder to provide their offense with a quality playmaker on the outside. Allen Robinson is headed for free agency and looks determined to leave the Bears. That makes selecting a top-notch wide receiver at No. 20 a solid strategy for Nagy and the team’s brain trust.

The Bears can’t afford to swing and miss with their first rounder this year if they want to make strides in 2021. Selecting any one of the following three prospects will represent a failure for Chicago’s front office.

3. Kwity Paye, Edge Rusher, Michigan

Paye is one of this class’s top pass rushers from the defensive end position. Landing that kind of talent at No. 20 would represent good value for the Bears. The reason they should avoid this Michigan man is that they have more pressing needs to address with their best draft asset.

The Bears need to focus their attention on wide receiver or quarterback. The only way their selection should deviate from those two positions is if a truly elite prospect falls into their lap. Paye is a good prospect, but he’s not elite. The Bears should stay away from him on Draft Day.
