My take: 1) Coaching hires are like draft picks, unless you arent totally off the reservation, there is no way to tell if it was a good pick until a least a couple years in. Nagy is on everybodys

Signing Foles feels like taking your sister to the prom. At least you have a date, but it is nothing to get excited about, and nothing is going to happen.

That is an astonishingly good trade for the Bears. 

Bears essentially give up an extra first round pick to get one of the better QBs in recent drafts. The 4th and 5th rounders are inconsequential. Not to say that 1st round picks aren't valuable, but once you have your qb, other positions can easily be filled in later rounds. My opinion

Wow it is really quiet in here for the day after the most momentous QB pickup of my lifetime by this team. I can't be the only one excited about this? I guess there is just a ton to process because the draft is here but wow! I'm not saying he is going to be anything special but I don't ever recall feeling this good about a QB acquisition.

So what's next? Today's picks are:

round 2 pick 52
round 3 pick 83
and then nothing until round 6

Seems like OL would be the most pressing need but not sure if that will be a good choice at 52 or not. I wouldn't be opposed to their top WR on the board at 52. OL at 52 and WR at 83 might be ok. I wouldn't be surprised if more moves were made though.

Ok, at least no picks next year with this trade. 2nd, 3rd, and 6th to trade up.

The third rounder kinda hurts. Our next pick isn't until round six?

One of the analysts on nfl network had a good point a few hours ago: scouting for this draft was spotty due to covid. Many teams have shallow draft boards because of that and are trying to get talent early. I'm more than ok with that philosophy right now. Chicago is killing this draft.

I loved this pick!!!  I am so glad they are addressing the line early this year. Last year I was really upset when they only signed Ifedi and spent 2 seventh round picks on lineman. I wonder when they are going to let us know what they gave up in this trade.

Fantastic! 

It's pretty much unanimous among the writers that Chicago killed it the last few days. Still need help at CB badly, but that won't come in this draft.

Couldn't be more pleased with this draft so far. Pace has hit home runs on both these picks without giving up a ton of future capital. If we can hit on a wr/kr and a backup corner with 151 and the 6th round picks, this will be the best Bear's draft in a long, long time.

Never mind you are correct, we got the 151 in that trade, the site i saw was out of date.

Did they trade down in the sixth?

208 for 217 + 250.

Seattle takes OT Stone Forsythe at 208.

Yeah, I like him. Good runner, hard to bring down, generally seen as a rd4-5 guy. Poor pass protector, rarely used as a receiver.

Thomas Graham Jr. CB with the last pick in the 6th - I don't think he is expected to be a difference maker. It's too bad they spent money on Dalton because I would rather go into this season with Fields and Foles if it meant keeping Kyle Fuller. Obviously they didn't know they would be in a position to get a QB.

Bears cutting Charles Leno a post June 1st cut.  So I guess our new tackle will be our starting left tackle this year.

Rumor is Pace was talking to Denver about the 9 spot but turned down a trade that was the 20th, a second, third,  and next years first. That was the kind of Pace overpayment that was scary. Turning it down and still landing Fields makes me feel better about Pace. Seems like he's learned his lessons- although maybe McCaskey/Phillips nixed it.

I think that was more than a rumor. There's a video floating around that confirms it (kinda). The Denver gm said something about that deal and that 'Ryan' was thinking it over. The Ryan is assumed to be Pace.

I'm not getting excited about the future of the Bears anymore. I will just assume they'll continue to suck, until they prove otherwise.

I see 6 to 7 wins behind dalton for a whole season

but

The last 4 of vikes, Seattle, NYG and vikes looks like Fields time

Chicago is a team that I can see a huge swing with.  If Rodgers gets traded, they could legit win 10.games. if Rodgers doesn't get traded,  well, we'll just say the NYG might be happy. I could see anything between 5 and 8 wins.
