The Bears traded the #1 draft pick because they have multiple holes to fill and there wasn’t an obvious player for them at #1. Now they have the 9th pick, and 2 of 3 Trib writers think they’ll take NU’s Peter Skorosnki, despite some concerns about his arm length.
But all that takes a back seat if Green Bay’s trade of Aaron Rodgers goes through. (He still has to pass his physical and there may be other issues to resolve.)
It’s been a long time since there wasn’t a Hall of Fame QB under center for the Packers, the NFC North just got a lot more wide open. And who knows, maybe the Bears will even beat the Packers this year!
