Windy City Gridiron

● By Jacob Infante
No matter whom the Bears hire to be their general manager or head coach, one thing’s for sure: change is happening in Halas Hall. Whether you trust that change to be positive or negative is one’s own opinion. However, there will be a shift in philosophy and mindset within the Bears’ organization, and arguably the biggest test for the new regime will be its ability to draft. In his stead as general manager, Ryan Pace was able to regularly identify diamonds in the rough on Day 3, securing some major steals for the Bears in the draft. That said, he also botched many of his early-round selections and sacrificed future draft capital on a consistent basis, leaving the team without the quantity of picks one would hope for when building a young nucleus.
