With the premier collegiate all-star game just around the corner, let’s rank every single player participating at this year’s Senior Bowl.

The Senior Bowl is the unofficial start of the ramping up of the draft process.

As the first major event to come after college bowl season, the game serves as a platform for unheralded prospects to boost their stock and make an impact while playing under NFL coaching staffs and in front of scouts and team management. It...

When the old guard retires, which passers are going to be leading the NFL? Well, the AFC championship game was a pretty good preview of years to come.

The last time I looked at how the young guns were developing, I looked at each quarterback’s ANY/A across his best eight games, each passer’s rating in “clutch” situations, and the tendency of each player to beat himself by seeing what percentage of snaps resulted in sacks or interceptions.

However,...

Kyle Long says stepping away was 'easiest decision I've ever made'

While many anticipated that Kyle Long wouldn’t return to the Bears in 2020, his retirement still came as a bit of a shock considering his long tenure in Chicago. But when Long joined Ian Rapoport on Rapoport and Friends, he said that the decision was an easy one considering how things had transpired for him as an athlete. “It was the easiest decision I’ve ever made,” he said. “Because I didn’t recognize the guy on film. I was an ass-kicker … there became a point where I...

PFF: Bears' biggest need is finding QB to replace Mitchell Trubisky

There’s no doubt that the Chicago Bears need to address the quarterback position this offseason. Whether that’s finding a replacement for Mitchell Trubisky or simply bringing in competition through a veteran in free agency and/or a developmental prospect from the NFL Draft. It’s also no surprise that Pro Football Focus tabbed finding a quarterback to replace Trubisky as the Bears’ top offseason need. We’re going into Year 4 of Trubisky as the Bears’ starting quarterback, and he...

Could the Bears play another international game in 2020?

Last season, the Chicago Bears played an away game against the Oakland Raiders at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London as part of the NFL’s International Series. The game was a deflating 24-21 loss, which seemed to define the rest of Chicago’s disappointing 8-8 season. While the Bears don’t have such great memories from last season’s international game, perhaps they’ll get a chance to fix that. Two of the three teams on the Bears’ schedule have agreed to host a “home” game...

Ha Ha Clinton-Dix stabilized the Bears' back end after Adrian Amos departure. He missed 10% of his tackle attempts (9 misses on 87 attempts). Clinton-Dix is a free agent after signing a one-year 'prove it' deal last offseason. Will Bears bring him back, or get another safety to pair with Eddie Jackson?

It’s a more eclectic Final Four for the NFL than usual. A welcome gift.

And then there were four.

There are three major events where the NFL hands out some form of guaranteed hardware every calendar year. The Super Bowl, what with a trophy named after a certain Packers coach. You’re lying if you’ve ever said you didn’t want your mitts and fingerprints all over a generic silver football. Because, reasons? (The Stanley Cup—still the only...

Bears' secondary ranked No. 12 by PFF

While the Bears defense encountered expected regression in 2019, they were still a top-five unit with a ton of talent and a bright future. The Bears secondary was led by a pair of Pro Bowlers in cornerback Kyle Long and safety Eddie Jackson. But how do they stack up against the rest of the NFL? Pro Football Focus examined the performances of defensive backfields throughout the NFL, and the Bears landed at No. 12. The Chicago Bears are a prime example of how teams can experience fluctuations...
