The Chicago Bears have a quarterback conundrum developing heading into the upcoming season. Many fans feel the front office will lean on the draft but here’s why that won’t be happening…

The NFL Draft will be underway this Thursday and the rumor mill has been churning out headline after headline. One of the top attention grabbers in Chicago has been that the Bears are interested in possibly drafting a prospective passer for Head Coach Matt Nagy to develop.

As of now, Chicago’s quarterback room is made up of newly acquired veteran, Nick Foles, former second-overall pick, Mitchell Trubisky and ole trusty dusty, Tyler Bray.

Alright, jokes aside, it would make sense for Ryan Pace to add a young, talented arm to the mix. However, I think there are four factors that will greatly impact the Bears chances of wanting to select a passer come this draft day.

How much will these factors impact the Bears decision making process? In my opinion, so much so that I will go on record stating that I do not believe that the Bears will select a quarterback during the 2020 NFL Draft.

While Bears fans recover from that big gasp, I will say that I do want the Bears to select a passer this year, but I don’t think it’s plausible.

While many will argue that Ryan Pace has stated he’d like to take a quarterback each draft, that seems to only be an option in a perfect world and if you haven’t looked around lately, it’s not a perfect world.

The Chicago Bears will scoop up a UDFA passer and will head into camp (if there is one) with the likes of Foles, Trubisky, Bray and a UDFA. Will this warm the hearts of the Chicago hopeful? Most likely not, but it’s what we’ll have to settle with.

Though fans may not be okay with the Bears passing talents, I have a funny feeling that the Bears franchise does; even if it is just for one-year. So, lets go ahead and take a look at the four factors that will lead to the Chicago Bears not selecting a quarterback prospect in the 2020 NFL Draft…
