The Bears didn't draft any offensive linemen due to the return of Gabe Carimi & Chris Williams. We also discuss the role of fourth rounder Evan Rodriguez and seventh rounder Greg McCoy.
By Columnist Bryan Dietzler The Chicago Bears made several different moves on their defense as of late, primarily though the draft, that need to be looked at.
