Until Nagy is gone, the draft is irrelevant.

Raiders go for 2 to win at Denver, but fail...they’ll finish 7-9.

I found this interesting, especially since even the NFL playoffs havent even started. Well take it for what its worth:

https://sports.yahoo.com/jalen-hurts-poor-performance-against-033831445.html

Hurts, who entered Saturday's game with an outside chance to sneak into the end of the first round, will all but certainly be available for the Bears' in the second round barring an unbelievable performance at the Scouting Combine or his Pro Day.

The question general manager Ryan Pace must now figure out is whether Hurts' failure in the College Football Playoff was impactful enough to remove him from the Bears' draft plans in April.


Amazing! And dont take this mean I am advocating him to do this. Its just when talent unexpectedly drops, people tend to jump on that. Dallas or the Pats are known for that. Personally, unless

Hurts breaks a leg before the draft I dont see him getting out of the 1st round. Who knows, I just dont expect miracles.

So which tackles will be available to us? We need at least one.

I read this somewhere else.  If Nagy won't change his system to better suit Trubisky's skill set, Hurts is more or less the same guy.  Why would he adjust his system to fit Hurts?

Bears don't have a whole lot of draft ammo.  They have the two second rounders (#43 and #50) and possibly a 4th round comp pick and various 5th, 6th and 7th rounders.

Pace has talked about trading down. 

One would assume offensive line has to be addressed but Pace recently signed 3 of those guys to new deals that could affect the cap.  I thought Daniels struggled his sophomore season but he had the best PFF ranking of the group.  Not sure why Nagy played Ted Larsen against the Vikes when it was a perfect opportunity to give Bars a start. 

TE has to be on the shopping list.  A legit receiving TE with speed and size - not a converted WR or basketball player either.  If Burton comes back 100% - great, we can still use him.  Bears medical screwed up determining the extent of his injury.

What is Gabriel's status?  Wyms did not take advantage of extended playing time.  Miller showed flashes but disappeared in many games.  Could use another speed guy.

Defense - did well in points given up but turnovers we're way down which hurt our offense which depended on them to give them shorter fields in 2018.  Quite a few question marks at CB, safety and ILB, plus need more depth in the d-line. 

Floyd had no injury excuses for lack of sacks - though he was solid in all other areas.  Can Bears afford to pay  him - can Bears afford not to?   Edge guys, aside from QB, are the most difficult to find.

if TE Cole Kmet is available the Bears have to take him, but I've read New England sees him as the next Gronk & will take him in the 1st round.

Kmet didn't play in the first part of the season - broken collarbone I think. When he recovered the ND offense surged. This was noteworthy as ND has a stable of good TEs.

He's the complete deal, catching & blocking. I doubt he'll be available when the Bears draft.

I'd also like to see the ND wr & return man Fink signed as a non-drafted FA if he isn't drafted. He played hurt the 1st half of the season so his #s aren't great, but he's the kind of player I'd want on my team.

wasn't impressed with Jalen Hurts in senior bowl. Was impressed with a kicker named Tyler Bass.

Bass has a leg, for sure!

I like Antonio Gibson, although that may be Memphis bias...he’s electric.
