Every year when the Scouting Combine arrives, that signals the beginning of draft season in earnest. An effective four-day job interview for NFL hopefuls, the weekend in Indianapolis is a topper for NFL teams to stack onto film evaluations of their next ideal selected franchise players in April.
The Bears from that respect with Ryan Pace and Matt Nagy are no different. After finding their quarterback of the future in Mitchell Trubisky last year, the organization now sets it's sights on protecting their quarterback, surrounding him with weapons, and finishing a potentially dominant defense for complimentary football.
To preview everything for the Bears at the 2018 NFL Scouting Combine, draft analyst Benjamin Solak of NDT Scouting hopped on WCG Radio to discuss a myriad of top storylines and evaluations for Chicago to consider this weekend. This is when draft season legitimately becomes fun!
