I’m kicking off my eleven-part series looking at each position group on the Chicago Bears with the easiest group to handicap https://www.thebearsfanshop.com/James-Daniels-Jersey , the quarterbacks." Latest NewsRoster AnalysisChicago Bears Training Camp 2019Chicago Bears 2019 Position Battles: Will they carry three quarterbacks?New,16commentsI’m kicking off my eleven-part series looking at each position group on the Chicago Bears with the easiest group to handicap, the quarterbacks.CDTI’m going to breakdown each position group of the Chicago Bears with an eye towards potential training camp battles in this eleven-part series. With Chicago’s rookies and quarterbacks reporting to Bourbonnais today, let’s explore the three QBs on the Bears’ roster, because handicapping the odds for this groups to make the 53-man roster is a piece of cake. Roster LocksThe Bears may not have the best quarterback situation in the NFL, but with Mitchell Trubisky and Chase Daniel as the one and two, the team is confident they have what it takes to win. The 24-year old Trubisky is coming off a Pro Bowl appearance and is primed to make a bigger splash in 2019. He has a swagger that comes from confidently knowing your role within the offense. His coaches and teammates have been lauding his command of the playbook now that he’s entering the 202 phase of the Matt Nagy system. I’m expecting big things from him and his offense in 2019. Daniel isn’t as physically gifted as Trubisky, but the 33-year old veteran has been in a similar offensive system for most of his NFL career. He’s a mentor and sounding board in their quarterback room, but he’s far more than just a glorified assistant coach because he’s relatable as their peer. Plus he can sling it when called upon. In two games last year he completed 69.7% of his passes for 515 yards and he helped the Bears beat the Lions on Thanksgiving day. A good bet to make itThe two mentioned above are locks, and the last QB on the roster is on the bubble.On the bubbleHistory tells us the Bears won’t carry three quarterbacks on the active roster, so that leaves Tyler Bray heading home. The practice squad could still be an option for the 27-year old Bray this year according to general manager Ryan Pace, who said about the situation that Bray an “exemption status.” Bray made his debut with the Kansas City Chiefs in 2013, was injured all of 2014 and 2015, but was back on the Chiefs in 2016 and 2017. He was an inactive member of their 53-man roster for most of his time in K.C.Last year he was mostly on Chicago’s practice squad Aaron Lynch Jersey , but was active during the stretch while Trubisky was injured. Bray technically only has one season on an NFL practice squad, and his previous time being inactive (instead of active) with the Chiefs and Bears makes him potentially one of the oldest practice squaders ever. The WCG writers weigh in on which Bears rival inside the division got better"On Friday, the staff broke down which Bears draftee we thought would make the biggest impact as a rookie, as well as which player from the draft class could become a star later.Spoiler: RB David Montgomery was brought up a lot. That was to be expected though, with so few top 100 picks and all. But that’s all right, today’s topic had a lot more different viewpoints on it.I asked our staff, which division rival in the NFC North had the best draft and does that change the Bears’ chances for the NFC North title?Sam: While the Vikings had the most draft capital, the rival that concerns me most is the Packers. I know Rashan Gary was a gamble, but Darnell Savage was a really good pick and will compliment what Adrian Amos does well. Later on they grabbed Jace Sternberger, who could turn into a real weapon for Aaron Rodgers.I know that the Packers roster top to bottom still doesn’t worry me against the Bears’ roster, but with Rodgers they always have a shot and they always concern me.Lester: I like some of what each team did, but none of their drafts really wowed me. All three teams got good tight ends that could be problems for the Bears eventually, but of the three I’d say the Vikings did the most to improve their team for 2019. Of their 12 draft picks, five or six could get some meaningful playing time early. Josh: The Vikings. Honestly Kevin White Color Rush Jersey , the Vikings are the best overall team, and the Packers are dangerous as long as Rodgers is healthy. I don’t think the draft had me worried about the Bears repeating so much as concerns over whether or not the Bears will continue to stay healthy and whether or not Trubisky takes a step forward. Healthy and with a Top 10 offense to assist it, this defense can win the division.Aaron: I’d say out of all the NFC North teams, the Minnesota Vikings had the best draft. Why? Because they had the least amount of holes of the other three teams and addressed them multiple times throughout the draft. Offensive line was a big need and they added both Garrett Bradbury and Dru Samia, who are both very good interior linemen.Minnesota has always been a vastly talented team but their biggest issue still remains at quarterback. Until Kirk Cousins can prove that he’s more than just a stat producer and start beating teams with winning records in big spots, I find it hard to see them truly challenging the Bears for the NFC North title.Jeff: I think it’s the Packers as much as it pains me to say it. They continue to invest in their defense, which has been a disaster the last few seasons. Still, I think the Bears are the clear favorites in the division and I’d be more concerned about the Vikings figuring things out now that they’ve added some talent to the offensive line. Erik: This is a tough one. I personally wasn’t impressed with any of the drafts amongst the division rivals. With that said, I believe the Vikings had the best draft in terms of balancing value with needs. And, no, I’m not concerned about the Vikings derailing the Bears’ chances at winning the division. They’re still paying $84 million per year for Kirk Cousins to line up at QB. Ken: I think Green Bay has a very high ceiling, very low floor draft class... they could be outstanding or most of the class could totally bust. Minnesota was solid, and Detroit has some guys that can play as well. Nobody had the “turn the franchise around as rookies” kind of draft, though. Robert: I like the Vikings’ draft more than any -- they had big holes at OL and did a lot to address them. That said https://www.thebearsfanshop.com/Riley-Ridley-Jersey , I’ll believe Kirk Cousins can win big games when I see it. Until he does, the Vikings won’t challenge the Bears.Jacob: I believe that the Vikings did a very good job with stacking their roster with talent, especially on Day 3. Their third-round pick, Boise State running back Alexander Mattison, is the only selection they made that really puzzled me. They added a lot of possible starters, and I’m a huge fan of Garrett Bradbury for their offense. He could be the anchor they’ve been lacking for their offensive line.WhiskeyRanger: Oh, probably the Vikings. They had a TON of picks, and added a lot of depth and a couple likely starters. As far as whether they concern me, I mean, I’m not quaking in my boots or anything, but Minny was already the top threat in the division and they didn’t get worse after the draft. So yeah. There’s some concern.Who do you think had the best draft? Are you worried about any of the other NFC North teams challenging the Bears for a division title?
