Windy City Gridiron

● By Jacob Infante
According to FiveThirtyEight, the Bears currently have a 6 percent chance to make it to the playoffs for the 2021-22 NFL season. I use this to say that, while it’s not time to give up on the season when just 8 games have been played, but it is a likely reality that the Bears won’t make a consecutive trip to the postseason. With that in mind, now would be a great time to keep one’s eyes focused on the future and start paying attention to prospects for the 2022 NFL Draft. The Bears don’t have a first-round pick this year as a result of the trade for Justin Fields, nor do they have a selection in the fourth round for the same reason. With the draft capital they do have, though, they will likely have plenty of different directions they could pursue.
