Last month we had the Bears selecting a top QB in Trey Lance of North Dakota State. We're backing off of that plan for the time being, however QB is the team's biggest need so bear with me this week as we discuss QB here in lieu of the actual pick. Lance, as well as Ohio State's Justin Fields, have only one year of starting experience in college football; 2020 was supposed to be their second year of development. Fields' conference the Big Ten is currently scheduling a winter/spring football slate. Like the kid who fallaciously convinced his mom he was sick, he's now looking out the window at his friends playing in the street. The Big10 is now looking into a Thanksgiving start and potentially sooner.

North Dakota State oddly has one game scheduled against Central Arkansas on October 3rd, hardly the quinceanera Lance was hoping for on September 5th versus Oregon. Both Lance and Fields need another year of CFB play or you get what? Right, another Mitch Trubisky.

Lance's Missouri Valley Conference is planning to play football in the spring, though no start dates have been mentioned yet. From my purview, both Lance and Fields will play for their teams in the spring, and also in their 2021 (redshirt) junior seasons as well. This really leaves just Trevor Lawrence as the only alpha-dog franchise QB in the 2021 draft, unless a guy like Kyle Trask or Sam Ehlinger produces a Joe Burrow-like ascention in their senior seasons.

Stay tuned! For now we're going with Georgia's Jamie Newman (though he never actually played there) in RD2 and Alabama speedster DeVonta Smith here.

BEARS HISTORICAL DRAFT PICKS

Reach/Value (R/V) Explained
The difference between where a player is selected in the NFL draft versus where the player was listed on the final Drafttek Big Board for the season in question.
Example: A player who was listed at #50 on the Big Board and was selected at #35 will be a "Reach" of -15. Alternately, a player listed at #35 on the Big Board who was selected at #50 is a +15 "Value".

Simply put: a positive number is a Value pick, a negative number is a Reach.
