That corner out of Oregon would have gone much higher in the draft had he not opted out this year due to Covid, so he could be a key player. The RB from VT is getting rave reviews, and the slot receiver also has a lot of analysts wondering why he fell that far in the draft. The only two I have not heard a lot of great things about are the lineman they took in the 5th, and the DT they took in the 7th. But I expect at least one them to make the team as well. So from top to bottom, this draft, on paper, looks like an absolute home run for the Bears.
If they hit on the first two picks, that sets the franchise up fantastically for the next 4/5 years because Fields/Jenkins will be value contracts at the two most expensive positions.
There should be room to get ARob to stay longterm and I fully expect Darnell Mooney to take a huge step forward considering Fields' long ball accuracy and his deep speed.
