It's a case of addressing greater need over lesser need. Sports Illustrated's mock draft 3.0 by Jenny Vrentas landed the Bears a familiar Chicago area player, and at a position where they need help in the worst way. The pick in this one-round mock draft on Tuesday was Northwestern cornerback Greg Newsome II.
There he was on a Chicago radio station praising the Green Bay Packers. OK, who? It was none other than former Bears quarterback Jim McMahon.
Most of the need positions the Bears can likely be filled by players with better chances to have an impact as rookies than a quarterback, who will be a designated sitter. Not all of those are on offense. Cornerback is an obvious one, but there's another one on defense.
