The Chicago Bears concluded their 2018 draft yesterday and for the most part is getting rave reviews league-wide for their work this weekend. Here are round-by-round grades and analysis for each pick.

The Chicago Bears finish up the 2018 NFL draft this weekend. This is a different approach that general manager Ryan Pace took this year. In years past, Pace has opted to go with raw, high-upside guys.

This year Pace has decided to go with high floor guys — big difference. This signals that Pace feels this team is ready to win now. There’s no Kevin White/Leonard Floyd type of selections in this draft. You can make a solid case that all these guys have the ability to contribute in year one.

Roquan Smith is a plug-and-play player at that jack inside linebacker position. He should quickly become a leader on that side of the football. James Daniels is also a plug-and-play at either guard or center.  Anthony Miller can also step in right away because of his understanding of the route tree and how to set up defensive backs.

It’s certainly exciting times to be a Bears fan, so here we will grade and analyze each pick, and project how they will do in year one.
