Final grades for the Chicago Bears' 2017 NFL draft class.
Either the Mitchell Trubisky gamble pays off big-time for the Bears, and no one cares about the ransom paid for the No. 2 pick, or it flops and a new regime will have to deal with the fallout. Second-round TE Adam Shaheen could help Trubisky or Mike Glennon in the passing game—he’s an ultra-athletic 280 pounds. RB Tarik Cohen (Round 4) is a heckuva lot of fun, too. The Bears need those playmakers, because the defense might be rough again next season. GM Ryan Pace spent just one pick on that side of the ball: No. 112, after a trade up, for S Eddie Jackson. That’s a good player and a solid value, but also one of the few defensive positions the Bears already addressed this off-season.
