The Chicago Bears need help all over the field. Ryan Pace is somehow being afforded the opportunity to be in charge of their draft selections again in 2021. They have a first-round pick this year for the first time in a few years so they need to use it wisely. Unless they make a trade, it will be the 20th overall pick in the draft.

Everyone knows that the SEC is the best conference in college football. Year after year, the top teams in the conference make a case to be in the College Football Playoff. The last two National Champions come from the SEC which shows how good the conference is compared to the rest. The Chicago Bears should consider one of these SEC players with pick 20:

Bulldogs . Azeez Ojulari. 13. player. 814. . EDGE

The Chicago Bears could use some help with edge-rushing because their guys are overrated.

The Chicago Bears didn’t get to the quarterback enough in 2020. Khalil Mack is a really good pass rusher but he hasn’t been the same since his first year with the Bears (2018). He isn’t bad by any means, and he gets double-teamed and held on every play, but he could definitely use some help which isn’t something we wanted to be said about a player making that much money.

Akiem Hicks may or may not be gone and Robert Quinn was a disaster of a signing. Azeez Ojulari, for that reason, is someone to consider drafting for the Chicago Bears. He was a great edge rusher for the Georgia Bulldogs and is ready to be a high selection after his sophomore season.

Ojulari had a great season as a sophomore. He played in ten Georgia games this season where he recorded 22 solo tackles and nine assists for 31 total tackles. 12.5 of those were for a loss. He also recorded 9.5 sacks for the Bulldogs so you know he was effective in his role. The Bears would benefit from adding a player of Ojulari’s caliber.
