That draft had Love going 27. If Love is worth 27 how do the Bears get to 27?  It sure would take both our 2's for sure, which is asininely stupid.

Yes, both 2nds for #27 but the Bears would get back a decent pick in round 3.

Ain't gonna happen - Pace has to win NOW.

I agree we have to win now. The window can close quickly. Old saying, "You gotta make hay while the sun shines"

Sounds like a case is being made to push Pace into drafting a QB. I sure hope not. I dont see any rookie QB getting the Bears to the Superbowl.

Finding a starting quarterback at No. 43 or No. 50 is a long shot. But the Bears not taking a quarterback at all would be worse.

Sounds like the media trying to push Pace to me.

I don't think Pace has the long term job security to take a QB early.  If he did have that security and thought he could get a starting QB somehow its not beyond belief that he'd pull that trigger.

Trubisky has one year left and Foles has an out for his contract in 2021.

I just don't see that Pace has that long term security - his signing of Jimmy Graham appears to be a short term desparate move.  At least for now.

Maybe Graham has a reputation for being a good mentor to younger players, or they think he has the potential to be one...

That's what I've been trying to convince myself, anyway...

The NFL doesn't pay players to be mentors.  Otherwise Chase Daniel would still be in Chicago.

It's not inconceivable that Graham could get 50 -60 catches 600 yards - half a dozen TDs. 

But what's interesting is that Graham, Burton and Shaheen could all not be with the Bears in 2021 without a huge cap penalty.

And the guy that nobody talks about is Demetrius Harris.

Does this mean then that a TE will be drafted in round 2?  ****-if-I-Know

Green Bay didn't think Graham was worth 8 million, the Bears gave him more. Accept it as another Pace blunder.

OL, WR, TE needs on offense. Safety (strong), LB (think of all the losses to FA) & corner needs on defense, altho I disagree with most on CB. I think we have enough there.

Picking a QB in the 2nd round would be kinda nutty.

On the bright side his last game he had 4-5 catches 95 yards.

Maybe he’ll at least be a worthwhile player although highly overpaid.

I dont care what anybody else says, 10 TEs on the roster doesnt solve the production questionmark:

https://chicago.suntimes.com/bears/2020/4/7/21212308/draft-analysis-bears-still-need-tight-end-help

They have zippo at TE. Whether or not they draft a TE, they still need to.

At first I thought I wanted Kmet at TE:  https://dabearsblog.com/2020/bears-draft-prospect-video-cole-kmet-te-notre-dame

But after watching Hopkins this guy has the hands I want:  https://dabearsblog.com/2020/bears-draft-prospect-brycen-hopkins-te-purdue

  Boogie I just watched the Hopkins video and he's got some speed and shiftiness for a big guy. Yeah I wouldnt mind him with one of our 2nds if he's still on the board.
