2017 nfl draft review


the nfl draft is now behind us and there is a lot to digest.  the bears made the worst trade in the history of the draft and teams were able to find some value later on thursday night.  i’m going to pick a couple handfuls of the picks throughout the draft and let you know what you can expect from a fantasy football standpoint. it’s very difficult to gauge rookie production going into a new season but there are players who were drafted to play a big role right away.  training camp and the preseason obviously will be the biggest deciding factor for every player’s participation in the regular season, but what is the fun in waiting?  we should talk about football now, we should try and make projections all of the time.  plus, the more that i write, the more opportunities there are for you to t

will bears gm throw caution to the wind as he charges into nfl draft?


the day before ryan pace began his first draft as bears general manager in 2015, he equated it to the super bowl. it was his way of putting into perspective the climactic and critical payoff following months of laborious scouting.fast forward two years to thursday night when pace heads into his third draft with only nine wins on his resume. this time, it's fair to ask: what's bigger than the super bowl?there simply is no overstating the importance of this draft for pace and the bears. after regressing in the standings last season, pace must combine his determination to build through the draft with proof that he's the right man to have at the controls.the bears have seven picks, including nos. 3 and 36 overall. their roster remains full of holes and unproven quantities, from quarterback to
