Predicting stats for the Bears’ 2017 rookie class

How will each Chicago Bears rookie perform in their first season with the team?

The 2017 NFL Draft has come and gone, and the Chicago Bears came away with a talented, yet puzzling haul of rookies.

Looking at their five selections, it’s apparent that general manager Ryan Pace drafted with the future in mind. Rather than sticking to his typically conservative drafting methods, Pace’s selections are mostly made up of boom-or-bust prospects. Three of his five picks come from small schools,...

Bears rookies played the third-most snaps among NFL teams in 2016. Is it a sign of a bright future?

The Bears’ youth movement is in full swing and the experience may indeed pay off later.

Even while success for the 2016 Chicago Bears came in limited doses with a 3-13 record and injury reserve list that by the end of the year may as well have been an extensive obituary, it doesn’t mean there weren’t positive underlying statistics that could point to brighter days ahead.

One of those primarily being last season’s Bears rookies playing the third most snaps in the NFL with 4,236,...

Bears could have diamond in the rough in defensive end Roy Robertson-Harris

Opportunities for undrafted free agents can prove fleeting. One moment they have a chance to show what they can do, and the next they're handed an airline ticket home.

Which running backs will be left standing on the Chicago Bears roster?

The Chicago Bears depth chart, as it sits right now, is full of questions that can only be answered through speculation. The running back position was not expected to be one of controversy entering the off-season, but as many know, the NFL thrives off unpredictability. One of the added components to what seemed to be a locked-in group was free-agent running back Benny Cunningham. Cunningham signed with the Bears in late March and is hoping to provide a veteran boost behind starter Jordan...
