Head Coach Matt Nagy is looking to improve a dreadful passing attack in Chicago. The Bears did a makeover at the receiver position. They signed former Jaguars WR Allen Robinson and former Falcons WR Taylor Gabriel to help out with the cause. Even though they lost WR Cameron Meredith via free agency to the Saints, they still have former first round pick Kevin White and Josh Bellamy, brings a nice value. Nagy seems to be excited to get Kevin White's career on the right track by saying, "he's eager to help him maximize his big ceiling." As the optimism climbs in Chicago there's a necessity that the Bears need to address in the draft if they want QB Trubisky to take a leap forward in year two.

With the 8th Pick of the 2018 NFL Draft the Chicago Bears Select: Connor Williams OT Texas

The Bears passing game was dead last this past season and part of the reason was because of pressure on the quarterback. Trubisky was sacked 39 times in 2017. That's no way to protect your franchise quarterback. They need help on the offensive line and bad. Center Cody Whitehair and RG Kyle Long are the only linemen that are notables coming back for the 2018 season. Turn on the Connor Williams tape. quick feet, strong hands, fluid hips and he can get up on the linebackers fast. Williams will be a instant starter on this Bears offensive line. There's doubt about his size but he makes that up in speed. He can be as effective at left guard as he was left tackle. Also, at Texas he excelled in the running game. He was one of the major reason D'Onta Foreman rushed for 2,028-yards, 15Tds and was up for Heisman consideration his junior season.Jordan Howard would be happy to have him blocking for him and so will Trubisky. Williams hasn't got his just due for a top offensive linemen but he could end up being on of the best.
