The J-Mack Top 5: the five rookies of the Lovie years who got Jason McKie hyped

The J-Mack Top 5: the five rookies of the Lovie years who got Jason McKie hyped

In the ongoing feature for Windy City Gridiron, Bears great Jason McKie talks to WCG historian Jack M Silverstein about the rookies of the Lovie years who got him hyped — and tells tales of the speed of Devin Hester, Johnny Knox, and Bernard Berrian. A 2nd round pick? On a return man? When the Bears drafted Devin Hester in 2006, Jason McKie knew he could run back kicks. He’d done it all day at Miami. But man, at that spot in the draft, here in the NFL, when you’re competing for a Super Bowl, what else was Hester going to do? McKie laughs retelling the story. “You know the rest,”...

2018 NFL mock draft: Last-minute predictions for what the Bears will do in all seven rounds

2018 NFL mock draft: Last-minute predictions for what the Bears will do in all seven rounds

With the 2018 NFL Draft drawing near, let’s take a stab at what the Bears might do in all seven rounds. Draft Day is here, ladies and gentlemen. 32 teams will have the chance to prepare for their future in whatever way they see fit. Some teams will make wise decisions, while others will produce blunders that will be talked about for generations. The Chicago Bears certainly hope to fall under the former. My last mock draft was released right after the NFL Combine, and quite a bit has changed since then. The Bears’ need for a wide receiver has diminished, and their offense as a whole...

Mocking the Mocks: Mike Mayock has the Chicago Bears taking Roquan Smith

Mocking the Mocks: Mike Mayock has the Chicago Bears taking Roquan Smith

The one and only mock draft from the NFL Network’s Mike Mayock has the Bears taking the polished inside linebacker from Georgia. Mike Mayock has become my favorite NFL Draft analyst since the NFL Network started sharing the television rights for the draft with ESPN. He’s also the only draft guru that doesn’t bother with a post-season mock, a pre-combine mock, a post-combine mock, a pre-free agency mock, a post-free agency mock, and about seven or eight other mock drafts during “mock draft season.” Mayock does one, and he does it the night before the real deal. Here’s his 2018...

Chicago Bears 2018 Draft Clouds: 4 through 6

Chicago Bears 2018 Draft Clouds: 4 through 6

I continue my stratospheric exploration of the Bears draft rankings, dipping down to the players likely to be available for the Bears second round pick. In the first three clouds, a discussed 15 players the Bears could consider with their number 8 pick or a 1st-round trade back. The next three clouds cover 22 more players and should include most players the Bears would consider in a trade-back or at their current #39 day two pick. Cloud Four (7 players): Alabama’s Da’Ron Payne is an intriguing run-stuffer who has flashed interior pass-rush potential Isaiah Wynn G,...

Bears Big Board: Analyzing 6 potential draft candidates for the No. 8 pick

The Bears might go on the clock Thursday night with an easy choice facing general manager Ryan Pace. Or not. That's what makes this draft so compelling. Yes, the Bears have the eighth pick, which seemingly limits their options compared with other teams at the bottom of the first round. But the...

Chicago Bears: Stuck Between A Rock And A Hard Spot

Bears in position for a beautiful first night of the NFL draft

The forecast Thursday night for the NFL draft is cloudy … with a chance of reign. By the time the greatest building system in all of sports is finished, the Bears will see blue sky over Halas Hall regardless of time or temperature. The team talks in terms of the “cloud” of players in the mix for...

Chicago Bears 2018 7-Round Mock Draft: SEC edition

Chicago Bears 2018 7-Round Mock Draft: SEC edition

The SEC produces the most draft picks, both overall and at the top of the draft. If Ryan Pace were limited only to players from the SEC, what’s the best fans could hope for? The draft is right around the corner. Armchair GMs are soon going to need to second-guess Ryan Pace’s actual moves instead of trying to dictate what he should do. In the conclusion to this series, I want to look at what the Bears’ draft might look like if they were limited to players coming out of the SEC. I followed the same rules as always, in that I used the Fanspeak default settings, I made no trades, and I...

Bearing down on the No. 8 pick: What 6 prospects said about their pre-draft visit to Halas Hall

Chances are good that the Bears’ first-round pick will be in attendance at the NFL draft Thursday night, but as you might imagine no one knows who is going to get that call. Provided the Bears don’t trade down and remain at No. 8 in the first round, the only prospect routinely linked to them who...

The Case to Trade Down from 8

What should the Chicago Bears do with the 8th overall pick? The best bet might be to trade down. We conclude the “Case for” series for the Bears selection with the idea that perhaps the Chicago Bears should trade down from eight as the best potential option.

Chicago Bears draft preview 2018: Linebacker

Chicago Bears draft preview 2018: Linebacker

Linebacker is a touchy subject, as it’s a position rich in history for the Bears. The final part of this draft series finds the heir apparent. Traditionally, inside linebacker has been a position the Bears have always valued more than most. Or at least, done better with than most. No other organization in the NFL has the same grouping of legends like Bill George, Dick Butkus, Mike Singletary, and Brian Urlacher.. Similarly, Bears’ general manager Ryan Pace clearly puts a premium on being set in the middle. His 2016 investments in Danny Trevathan ($7.15 million per year), and Jerrell...
