The Chicago Bears had one of the best defenses in 2018, but it wasn\u2019t enough as they fell at the second playoffs hurdle.\nCan they Draft well enough to push for an NFC title in 2019?\nPlayers Drafted\n\n\n\nPlayers\nPick\nPosition\nSchool\n\n\nDavid Montgomery\n73\nRB\nIowa State\n\n\nRiley Ridley\n126\nWR\nGeorgia\n\n\nDuke Shelley\n205\nCB\nKansas State\n\n\nKerrith Whyte\n222\nRB\nFlorida Atlantic\n\n\nStephen Denmark\n238\nCB\nValdosta State\n\n\n\nNotable UDFA\n\n\n\nPlayer\nPosition\nSchool\n\n\nJoe Lowery\nOL\nOhio\n\n\nEmanuel Hall\nWR\nMissouri\n\n\nMathieu Betts\nDL\nLaval (Canada)\n\n\nJordan Powell\nS\nWidener\n\n\nJesper Horsted\nWR\nPrinceton\n\n\n\nTEAM 2019 Outlook\nOffense\nThe Bears used their first pick, 73rd overall, to select one of the hardest running RBs in the class, Iowa States David Montgomery. He had 2,400 yards at an average of 4.7 in his final two seasons, amassing 24 TDs. Not afraid of doing the hard yards to get the job done for his team. Expect Montgomery to have a role with the Bears this season. Probably in a rotation with former Seahawks RB Mike Davis.\n\nWith he 126th overall pick, the Bears selected young excitement machine Riley Ridley from Georgia. The younger brother of Calvin Ridley, Riley averaged nearly 15 yards per reception over his college career and added nine TDs in his final season. He should slot in behind Anthony Miller in the depth chart to start the season but won\u2019t sit there for long.\n\nThe WR depth chart is looking like a match up we should all keep an eye on in the offseason. The UDFA signings of Emanuel Hall and Jesper Horsted as well as the offseason acquisitions of former Patriot Cordarrelle Patterson, Jaguars Allen Robinson and Falcon Tayler Gabriel. Its going to be an interesting offseason for the Bears.\n\nOhio State RG Joe Lowrey was signed as a UDFA and will slot into the depth chart behind Kyle Long. This would be a good contest to watch as well. Expect Lowrey to see game time in 2019.\nDefense\nThe Bears sold the farm to get Khalil Mack from the Raiders in 2018 and if you asked them, they would do it again. For this reason, they only have five draft picks in 2019, meaning there be a lot of additions in the offseason.\n\nThey drafted CB Kerrith Whyte from Kansas State. Whyte is a specialist shut down corner who will sit behind Prince Amukamara for now. He ahs a lot to learn but can be a force with the right coaching.\nGrade - B\nThe Bears addressed some needs they had and will force a lot of great competition for spots in the offseason. GM Ryan Pace is an excellent judge of character. He is constantly finding players who are hard workers off the field as well. Guys who get to training early and leave late. Players who are never satisfied with the way they are playing and want to be the best. Culture is important at any franchise and Pace is helping the Bears to play as a single unit rather than a bunch of individuals.
