Lester Wiltfong, Jr. from Windy City Gridiron has your Bears draft news, but first, he’s changed scenery. Gone are the days of being accosted by bums and listening to screaming children on the Metra. Lester joins us from the carpool lane where we can actually hear him and won’t get interrupted by an unruly passenger’s meth trip.
What are the Bears going to do in the draft? Lester thinks Ryan Pace wants a quarterback (Deshaun Watson, anybody?), but doesn’t want to spend the third overall pick on one. We could see the Bears trade down from #3. If they go defense, do they go with Jamal Adams? Bartender likes him, but maybe he’s not worth the #3 pick, either. Maybe they go with Jonathan Allen, arthritic shoulder and all. Lester hopes they don’t go that route because of past problems drafting injured players.
Lester has his dream draft scenario, which you can read all about at Windy City Gridiron by clicking this link. It involves Myles Garrett, Pat Mahomes, and more. We also hear what Lester thinks of Deshone Kizer and his comments.
The Bears have been busy in free agency, too. Lester thinks the offense will be better, while the defense has better safety play. Lester is ever the optimist. Max thinks Bears fans will turn on the team by the second quarter of the season. Not the second quarter of a midseason game, no. The second quarter OF THE SEASON. Still, Bears fans are not Eagles or Jets fans, though. Bears fans haven’t had to sit through ESPN showing a retrospective of their team’s draft mistakes.
Lester has also launched The T-Formation Conversation podcast from Windy City Gridiron. You can find it on Apple Podcasts (just like us!).
