The Bears have plenty of needs heading into next week's NFL Draft, and the SportsTalk Live panel discussed how newly tabbed general manager Ryan Pace will have copious options to fill them.
A pair of NFL writers from 670 The Score chimed in on how they believe the first round will play out, and what the Bears may do with the 7th overall pick. You can watch the entire analysis in the video above.
"What I think they will do is let the board come to them, which is the right thing to do," Dan Durkin said. "When I heard the reports talking about they're in a position to move up I just chuckled at that. This team has so many more needs than they have resources that there's no chance this team's going to do that. So I think given the state of the roster and how many holes they have they can't go wrong with that seventh overall pick. I don't think there's any position that they draft that would shock you, given the value of this draft."

Added Jason Goff: "Even at corner. Tim Jennings had his season two, three years ago, and since then he hasn't been very good. Kyle Fuller was one of the worst corners the last three months of the season. .....Right now Ryan Pace is in a beneficial position where whatever he does right now you're going to have to go with and trust his talent evaluation. Right now Ryan Pace can do no wrong until that player puts on a helmet."
