Sports Ruckus writer Justin Walters has graded the entire NFC North, and some Bears fans might not like his grading, but he has some very valid points. Let’s see what the Bears finished with.
The Team from the Windy City needed some upgrades on the defensive side of the ball as the offense carried the team close to a playoff spot last year. The Bears strengthened the middle of their D line with 2 big bodies and added a top CB that fits their style and an athletic safety to compete with the aging group currently in the secondary. The Bears did a good job drafting as they look to overtake the Packers in the NFC North. Adding another O lineman or an extra receiver in a strong draft at those positions wouldn’t have hurt either though.
Kyle Fuller CB
Ego Ferguson DT
Will Sutton DT
Kadeem Carey RB
Brock Vereen S
David Fales QB
Pat O’Donnell P
Charles Leno OT
Fuller is a tough CB that does a little bit of everything and is physical for his size
I like both DTs , they both should step in and contribute right away
Carey is an elusive receiving back to sub in for Matt Forte
Vereen has ability and could help at safety or slot CB
David Fales will come in and compete to be Cutler’s backup
Final Grade: Chicago Bears B
