With the draft selections of Fields and Jenkins, this draft is already an A+, home run, touchdown, score, etc. for the Bears.
Why are they the guys?
Fields is a bonafide NFL-ready quarterback. Outside of Trevor Lawrence, Fields is the most NFL-ready quarterback of the bunch. This benefits the Bears’ heavily because they failed to develop a rookie quarterback already — Mitch Trubisky.
If the Bears were to draft Jenkins with their 20th overall first-round pick, I would have said ‘job well done.’ Jenkins is one of the best tackles in this draft, and a mean one at that. He will be ready to start on the offensive line immediately.
“My edge to me is about being able to finish anybody in the dirt. I don’t care who you are lining up against me, I don’t care what you earn against me, I don’t care who you are, I’m going to attack you,” said Jenkins after being drafted by the Bears.
The Bears got their guys, and maybe they can deal with using their final four picks to fill the rest of their needs, plus free agency. But, if this is the end of the Bears’ picks until round five, it wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world.
