Up until the 2014 NFL draft, I will be taking a look around the league at each NFL team and analyzing their situations leading up to the draft. This page will contain my individual team analysis leading up to the 2014 NFL Draft, and I will be providing periodic updates over the next few months. Be sure to check out my actual 2014 NFL Mock Draft predictions as well, in addition to the analysis I’ll be providing for all 30 NFL teams and their potential draft needs.
2014 NFL Mock Draft Analysis - Chicago Bears
Top Free Agents
QB – Jay Cutler (unlikely to leave)
CB – Charles Tillman
CB – Tim Jennings
FS – Major Wright
DT – Corey Wootton
Biggest Team Needs
The Bears are going to need to load up on run stopping defensive linemen and their secondary. They could potentially lose almost their entire veteran presence in the secondary including 11 year veteran Charles Tillman.
Top NFL Draft Targets
They are very likely to take the best defensive player available and fill in the gaps later on. Ifo Ekpre-Olomu (CB, Oregon) could be viewed as a target however he could be gone long before they draft and Chicago really needs some beefy run stoppers.
