Myles Jack

The Chicago Bears are coming off a decent season however they missed the playoffs and have some questions on both sides of the ball. Chicago needs a pass rusher but they also need a quarterback to develop behind Jay Cutler.

If that was not enough Chicago needs to add some defensive back depth to their secondary all while getting Alshon Jeffery to resign to the Bears. If Jeffery does not return the Bears have Kevin White who is an unproven commodity after missing all of 2015 with a shin injury.

The Bears could target a wide receiver with their 11th pick but it is more likely they resign Alshon. Chicago also currently wants to compete with Jay Cutler which is why they brought in Adam Gase a few seasons ago so drafting a quarterback in the first is just about out of the question.

The Bears will most likely try to get a pass rusher or cornerback to help balance out this defense. The Bears could target defensive ends such as Jonathan Allen or Emmanuel Ogbah. They could go after defensive tackles like Robert Nkemdiche or Jarran Reed.

Myles Jack might even fall to them thanks to an injury and if that is the case the Bears will not waste anytime pulling the trigger. The Bears will have more than $58 million in cap space so they can rebuild their defense if they choose too, of course resigning Alshon Jeffery may cost them a significant chunk. Matt Forte is essentially gone as the Bears have found a cheaper/younger option in Jeremy Langford and Ka'Deem Carey.

It will be interesting to see how the Bears maneuver through the offseason under John Fox's 2nd season as head coach.
