NFL Draft 1st round Open Thread

Bears’ fans, this is your one stop spot to get ready for the NFL Draft and to talk all about the first round... This will be your open thread for the first round of the NFL Draft which kicks off tonight, Thursday, April 25, at 7 p.m. CT. Even though the Chicago Bears will be sitting this round out, unless Ryan Pace swings a trade, there’s still to be plenty of drama taking place. Here are a few places where you can watch the NFL Draft. ABC, ESPN, ESPN Deportes, and NFL Network Many websites allow you to stream as long as you confirm your TV provider, but supposedly CBS Sports HQ will...

Mel Kiper Jr. says 5 good running backs should be available to the Bears in the 3rd round of the NFL draft. Actually, as usual, he says a lot more than that.

On a conference call this week, I asked ESPN NFL draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr. about the quality of the running backs the Bears will have an opportunity to select in Friday’s third round, which will be their first chance to pick unless they trade up. He unhesitatingly launched into a soliloquy —...

NFL reveals that Charles Tillman will announce the Bears 2nd-round pick

NFL reveals that Charles Tillman will announce the Bears 2nd-round pick

Say what? The NFL just sent out their updated list of legends and active players that will help spice up the NFL Draft by announcing the picks in the second and third rounds. We’ve known about Olin Kreutz being tabbed to make the third-round announcement for the Chicago Bears for a while now, but the latest press release includes a second-round Bears’ legend too. But the Bears don’t have a second-round pick? Yes, but the NFL has to prepared just in case Ryan Pace does what Ryan Pace does and he moves up to get “his” guy. If the Bears were to somehow make it into the second...

Chicago Bears 2019 Season Predictions: 4th quarter

Chicago Bears 2019 Season Predictions: 4th quarter

We’re going to predict the Chicago Bears 2019 record in each quarter of the season in this week’s WCG roundtable discussion! Here are our predictions for the 4th quarter! The NFL revealed their 2019 schedule last week, so we had to get in on the much-too-early Chicago Bears prediction fun. But to take it in a different direction, we wanted to break the schedule down into four easy to digest portions of prognostications. Former Bears head coach, Lovie Smith, used to like to break the schedule into four quarters — much like a football game — so we’re going to do the same thing here...

Enjoy the Bears being good for once during team's 2019 NFL Draft party this weekend at Soldier Field

The Bears are good again. At least, we’re pretty sure they are. They definitely were good last season, which means their pick in this weekend’s 2019 NFL draft will fall lower in the selection order. That does make draft day a little less exciting, but it also feels a little less desperate, which...

Chicago Bears players as Avengers: Endgame characters

It may be a coincidence that the 2019 NFL Draft is the same day as the world premiere of The Avengers: Endgame, but football and superheroes have a lot in common. The Chicago Bears and the rest of the NFL have the 2019 NFL Draft to worry about on Thursday night. Fans of both football […] Chicago Bears players as Avengers: Endgame characters - Da Windy City - Da Windy City - A Chicago Sports Site - Bears, Bulls, Cubs, White Sox, Blackhawks, Fighting Illini & More

Chicago Bears 7 Round mock draft: The RB only as UDFA version

Chicago Bears 7 Round mock draft: The RB only as UDFA version

In Lester’s last mock draft, he’s staying away from running backs to see the pool of available undrafted free agents at the position. This will be my final mock draft before the real deal kicks off on Thursday night. For me, mocks are a way to learn about different prospects and a way to simulate various scenarios, so this time I’m skipping the running back position for the Chicago Bears. I’ll say it again for the skimmers... I am purposefully not drafting a running back in this mock. I do think the Bears will take a back at some point, but with teams finding success in the...

Chicago Bears NFL Draft: Ronheen Bingham could be excellent EDGE option

The Chicago Bears should be intrigued by this incredibly productive edge rusher out of Arkansas State. There is no doubt that Ryan Pace, general manager of the Chicago Bears, has a knack for identifying talent from smaller schools. While his selections of Adam Shaheen, Tarik Cohen, and Bilal Nichols, may have initially been criticized by […] Chicago Bears NFL Draft: Ronheen Bingham could be excellent EDGE option - Da Windy City - Da Windy City - A Chicago Sports Site - Bears, Bulls, Cubs, White Sox, Blackhawks, Fighting Illini & More

The Bears need a running back. These 8 are worth considering with the 87th pick in the NFL draft.

Ryan Pace faced reporters Tuesday at his annual pre-draft news conference and, with his poker face intact, said the Bears are content with a committee of running backs consisting of Mike Davis, Tarik Cohen, Ryan Nall and, occasionally, receiver Cordarrelle Patterson. Was he bluffing? Or does the...

WCG Writer Scouting Report Big Board

We’ve found scouting reports for the entire WCG staff and ranked them accordingly big board style to ensure we’re ready for the draft. By now you’ve all seen Jacob’s NFL Draft Top 200, Josh’s Confidence Board, and had the chance to peruse our plethora of Chicago Bears pre-draft scouting reports, mock drafts, and podcasts, but this special top prospect ranking may be the most important of all. We used SB Nation’s 100 percent accurate NFL Draft scouting report generator to fabricate some 100% accurate scouting reports on our staff, then I went through and ranked them according...

Bears Over Beers Ep 7: Draft Prediction Special

Jeff and EJ make some final predictions as we settle in for the 2019 NFL Draft. We made it. The 2019 NFL Draft starts tonight and while the Chicago Bears will almost certainly not make a pick on day 1 this year (just remember, Khalil Mack wears navy and orange now), there is still plenty to talk about. Jeff and EJ make some final predictions about what will happen with the Bears picks including where the Bears are most likely to draft a running back, whether or not a kicker will be taken in round 7, and if Ryan Pace will use some of next year’s picks to add more talent to the 2019...

2019 NFL mock draft: Last-minute predictions for the Bears’ picks

With the NFL Draft just one day away, why not take another stab and what the Bears might do this year? Draft day is almost upon us, ladies and gentlemen. For the players, these next few days will serve as the realization of a life-long dream: playing in the NFL and being forced to move to a city they have no control over. For the teams, the draft is a chance to start a rebuilding phase, transition from a mediocre team into a playoff contender, or add the finishing touches to a Super Bowl-caliber roster. The Chicago Bears fit under the latter, as their playoff appearance in 2018 indicates...

WCG Confidence Board 2.0

WCG Confidence Board 2.0

Who will the Chicago Bears have available to them in Round 3, and should they draft for need, for value, or simply for overall talent? This is a modest update to my confidence board, adding OurLads’ April position rankings and Windy City Gridiron’s own Jacob Infante’s Top 100 board. Most of the other boards available seem to have moved behind a paywall or do not have the desired depth for the scale of the board. To be honest, “mock drafts” are dominating coverage more and more, and as someone who prefers to look at prospects on their own, instead of trying to pretend to read the...
