If there was a more exciting and pivotal offseason for the Chicago Bears in recent memory, it’s already been forgotten. This is the most refreshed, excited and optimistic many fans have been in quite a while.

The Bears do, after all, have their franchise quarterback set in Justin Fields. Last year’s draft day trade will go down as a moment which changed the future of this franchise forever, and now it’s time to go to work.

For Fields’ rookie season, the Bears didn’t have the right folks in charge, nor did they have the correct scheme and personnel. That’s what this offseason is now about.

General manager Ryan Poles has been speaking at this week’s NFL Combine, giving fans plenty of optimism and hope for the immediate future, and it sure sounds like he’s focused on surrounding Fields with as much talent as possible.

If the 2022 NFL Draft shakes out like this mock does for the Chicago Bears, Justin Fields is going to develop exponentially.

The Bears have a lot of holes to fill this offseason, on both offense and defense. Matt Eberflus is more of a defensive-focused guy, of course, but he also understands that this is all about Fields, first and foremost.

The Bears need to protect Fields. That’s priority number one, so looking at this year’s crop of free agents and draft prospects, it seems like a foregone conclusion that Poles is going to spend and draft wisely.

But, Fields also needs some weapons to work with. The Bears’ bare cupboard of receivers is looking mighty thin right now, but there are plenty of options in that realm, too.

Starting with a shocking trade in the first round, let’s see just how monumental this mock draft could be for Fields and the Bears.
