The Chicago Bears managed to win 10 games in 2012, but came up just one game short of making it into the playoffs, and after another solid offseason (despite losing Brian Urlacher), a solid draft could help the Monsters of the Midway make it back into the postseason for the first time since 2011. If the team opts to not re-sign Urlacher, there will be several of the top middle linebacker prospects on the board here, and that may be where the best value is at for Chicago.
If they do re-sign Urlacher, then solidifying the offensive line should be priority here, as Jay Cutler has spent way to much time on the turf due to poor o-line play, and if the Bears truly believe he’s a franchise QB, they need to start protecting him like it.
