There’s no reason to mince words — Ryan Pace knocked this draft out of the park.

In just a single draft weekend, Ryan Pace managed to walk away with a top-shelf franchise QB prospect, a top-shelf franchise OT prospect, value at RB & CB (at least), and all but next year’s 1st & 4th round selections in-tact. For a franchise as desperate to upgrade at QB as Chicago has been, this was a luck-assisted masterstroke of a draft that may very well have saved Matt Nagy and Ryan Pace’s jobs.

But just how good are the players Pace picked? Where do they fit into the team’s future? And what kind of impact will they have on the 2021 season? I attempt to answer these questions and more in my latest video by assigning pick-by-pick grades and breaking down each selection — check it out and let me know what you think!

What do YOU think? Are you happy with the Bears’ picks? Are there any you wish you could change?
