We have arrived: it’s draft week for the Chicago Bears, and trying to predict what will unfold is about as easy as trying to convince Tom Brady to begin a carnivore diet.

The 2021 NFL Draft only has one true certainty at this point, and that’s seeing Trevor Lawrence going number one overall to the Jacksonville Jaguars. Even Zach Wilson isn’t a guarantee to go number two to the New York Jets, although it’s incredibly likely.

Once the San Francisco 49ers make their selection at no. 3 overall, the draft really starts. That’s when the fun begins.

The Atlanta Falcons have entertained trading their no. 4 selection for weeks now, but if they keep it, the draft becomes real interesting. Will four quarterbacks go in the first four picks? If so, which is the fifth one that drops?

Will a fifth quarterback technically drop out of the top six or seven picks? This is going to be a draft for the ages, and the Bears are far down the pecking order, currently looking up.

Chicago Bears general manager Ryan Pace has never been shy about making a deal.

But, just where would the Bears have to get to in order to find that franchise quarterback? As stated, the draft really begins at number four. That’s where we will find out a lot about how far up the Bears have to go.

Kyle Pitts and Penei Sewell aren’t making it out of the top eight picks — and if they do, it’s a miracle. The Bears may know exactly where they have to get in order to draft that fifth quarterback off the board once we get past the Falcons’ selection.

From there, it’s time for Pace to go to work. This is it. This is what the fans have been waiting for. The fans are not sold on Andy Dalton. They weren’t sold on Nick Foles, nor were they sold on Mike Glennon or Mark Sanchez. This fan base deserves a future leader at the position.

In this mock draft, the fans get just that, as Pace does what he needs to do in order to get the Bears within striking distance. Let’s begin what would be a wild, unforgettable ride for the Bears this week.
