With the conclusion of the 2018 NFL Draft, The Chicago Bears were celebrated for what many thought was a successful draft. A recap of the players selected were:
1st Roquan Smith OLB, Georgia
2nd James Daniel C, Iowa
2nd Anthony Miller WR, Memphis
4th Joel Iyiegbuniwe OLB, Western Kentucky
5th Bilal Nichols DT, Delaware
6th Kyle Fitts DE, Utah
7th Javon Wims Wr, Georgia
The first three picks by General Manager Ryan Pace all filled needs. Smith should make an immediate impact on an already talented defensive unit that looks to get key guys back that were lost to injury. Daniel will have the task of ensuring Trubisky stays upright and if that happens, Anthony Miller will be able to flash his playmaking ability. I’m excited to see what Miller brings to the Bears offense. He plays much bigger than he is listed and will fight for jump balls.
The four other players are all pretty much question marks until we see them in action but if one thing is for sure, one of these players should emerge as a key contributor for the Bears with Ryan Pace’s history in drafts.
Which player or players are you excited about?
