With the 2019 NFL Draft just one week away, the Chicago Bears have their sights set on picking a running back. Let’s get to know some of the top options for the Bears.

The 2019 NFL Draft is almost here, and the Bears have a big task on their hands.

That task is to pick the next franchise running back.

That task is even more daunting, considering the fact that the Bears don’t make their first selection until the third round when an abundance of top running backs will be off the board.

Nonetheless, regardless of where the Bears will be picking, they will have options.

Whether it be a top running back that falls on draft day, trade into the first or second round or a late-round gamble, the Bears will have a chance to strike gold with their next big running back.

Beyond particulars, 40-yard dash times, stats or projections, one of the most important, and my personal favorite things when drafting a running back is the question of who does this player compare to?

Running backs are the biggest stars in the NFL, no question. There will certainly be some future stars drafted at running back next week. Hopefully one will fall into the Bears’ hands.

In the weeks leading up to the draft, the Bears have brought in several running backs for interviews. If history repeats itself, then Ryan Pace will select a running back that he brought in for an interview leading up to the draft.

That narrows down the list a bit. This draft is fairly loaded with running backs, so between the dozen or so backs that the Bears have shown considerable interest in, it is really anyone’s guess as to who the Bears will end up with.

Well, here we go. Here are five player comparisons for the top-five running back options for the Bears in the NFL Draft.
