Bears are finished in the 7th and still no SS. Strange. Quien sabe! UDFA?

And besides the 4th next year what else did Pace give up to do all that moving crap?

All in all, we did not have a great hand entering FA or the draft.  I don't have a problem with moving up in the later rounds and giving up even later picks to do so.  Occasionally, you have a later draft choice make the team, but to move up, I don't think the price was too high.  Quality over quantity.

We knew Pace wasn't going to fill every hole.  He did get a future starting Y tight end, he got a speed receiver, he got a backup OLB, he got a starting RCB.

I think he's fine with a dozen or so it seems right guards to compete with Efedi for that spot.  We got to hope Leno and Massie can rebound from a subpar 2019 and Spriggs is healthy to be the swing tackle.

I'm surprised they haven't signed a dozen undrafted free agent safeties to compete with Deon Bush.  That spot looks like it needs some attention...this year.

Last year it was said Bush was the best player in camp but he got nicked and Dix started.

May not be as bad off as everyone thinks

Bush held his own against the Eagles in the playoff game when Jackson was injured.  You could see the Bears were trying to get Busch some snaps in 2019 with the starters subbing in for Clinton-Dix.

Then he gets victimized by Jimmy Graham and everyone's asking why was Bush in there?

He's probably going to be OK but with addition of the 2 rookies at corner, strong safety is probably the weakest position on defense.

IMHO this is a must read if you are a Bears fan:

https://chicago.suntimes.com/bears/2020/4/27/21238716/bears-spotlight-juan-castillo

On the much maligned offensive line: The Bears are counting on Castillo to make the difference. Pace didn’t even have to be asked about seventh-round draft picks Arlington Hambright and

Lachavious Simmons to tout Castillo’s impact.

   “[Simmons’] size and length jumps out. He’s got 35-inch arms,” Pace said. “These are the type of guys that Juan Castillo loves to work with, just that body type.”

And when asked about free agents Ifedi and former Packers tackle Jason Spriggs, Pace again referred to Castillo as the key.

Pace better hope Castillo not only coaches up these new Bears but he better be able to do the same with the rest of the guys on that underperforming O-line.

On the Bears Barroom they were saying that Castillo will get the best out of the OL.  They said that Heistand was such a great teacher, but then he couldnt even get Bars, who played for him, in the game, not even the last week.  I just hope that Castillo, if he sees someone underperforming,cough Leno, cough Leno, cough Leno, he wont hesitate to sit him/kick him in the assss.
