Free agency is pretty much over and the 2021 NFL Draft is right around the corner, so what do you feel are the biggest needs still remaining for the Chicago Bears?

As is Ryan Pace’s M.O., he went out and addressed several positions that we’d all categorize as needs for this Bears team during free agency, but the talent level of those acquisitions have certainly left their options open. There hasn’t been a big money pickup or an unexpected trade, so I could see the Bears going in about four different directions in the first round of the draft. I have my favorite for sure, but nothing would really surprise me at this point.

  • For a recap on all of Chicago’s moves so far you can hit up our free agency tracker here.
  • Our Lead Draft Analyst, Jacob Infante, gave his take on the need positions for the Bears by ranking them 14 through 1 right here.
  • In fact, you can check out all our Bears 2021 draft related content in this group right here.

But we want to know what you guys feel are the Bears top needs in this draft-centric series of polls, so vote and then discuss in the comment section.
