The hoopla of the draft’s conclusion does not bring a close to the NFL off-season. No, that merciful dead period of the summer is still a little over a month away. That means that the Bears enjoying one of their best immediate impact drafts in some time needs time to be properly processed, digested, and beaten like a dead horse.
To help make sense of the final touches Bears general manager Ryan Pace put on his roster, NBC Sports Chicago’s J.J. Stankevitz joined me on the latest jam-packed episode of WCG Radio. From how Roquan Smith projects as a professional, to who Anthony Miller draws reminders of with his work ethic, we broke it all down. Plus, we looked to the future and cracked open Chicago’s “window.”
