Mock Draft: Chicago Bears
The Chicago Bears have made strides since Free Agency began. The signing of Brandon Marshall gives Chicago a No. 1 receiver that has been missing for years. Eric Weems and Blake Costanzo were special teams players.This allows the Bears to replace players like Corey Graham and Zach Bowman. One thing people do not know about the Chicago Bears is how much they emphasize "Special Teams." It's one of the main reasons Dave Toub has enjoyed great success as a special teams coach.
The teams that win in Free Agency rarely make it to the Super Bowl. It is the teams that draft the best players--always. Jerry Angelo's record was below average at best but having success through the draft is tough and often very challenging. Look at each team. Only a handful are successful. Even the Patriots have been struggling lately at drafting. Thus, the Chicago Bears are hoping that Phil Emery, a former Chicago Bear scout, will have better draft results than Jerry Angelo.
