TE: The Bears have a need at TE after trading Martellus Bennett to New England.

C/OG:  They had the worst guard duo in the NFL last year
LB Depth:  They need more athletes here
Speed/scat RB:  Ajayi has nice size but he can't carry the load alone

RT: Manelik Watson-Good
RB: 
Latavius Murray-Average


NEEDS: 
Safety: The Raiders were smart to sign Nelson, but they need another starter.
DT:  Mack may be the best pass rusher in the league, but he needs more help from the interior D-Line in getting to the opposing QB. They should try to get a 3 tech in order to move Williams back to NT.
MLB Upgrade
Power RB:  Murray was solid as the feature back but they should add a power back somewhere in rounds 4-6
Big WR: Cooper and Crabtree are great but both are under 6-1.
Backup QB Upgrade

RT:  Byron Bell-Below Average
C/G: Ben Jones-Average
RB: 
Demarco Murray-Elite/New
FB: Jalston Fowler-Young/2015 4th RD

NEEDS: 
O-Line: They must protect franchise QB Marcus Mariota. Lewan and Warmack are good but the rest of the line needs work. They may want to draft a LT and move Lewan to RT.
CB: The current group is made up of several guys that would be #3 corners on most teams.
OLB/Pass Rusher: Casey is the best pass rusher on the team. They need a young player to generate a better pass rush from the outside.
ILB Depth: With all those picks, don't be surprised if the Titans take a risk and draft Jaylon Smith, It could pay off huge in the long run.
NT Upgrade

#4 CB-Alex Carter-Young/2015 3rd RD
Safety:
SS: Tavon Wilson-New/Unproven
FS: Glover Quin-Average in 2015/near Elite in 2014
WR/TE: 
WR: Golden Tate-Good
WR: Marvin Jones-Average/New
TE 1: Eric Ebron-Young/2014 1st RD/has done little thus far
TE 2: Brandon Pettigrew-Below Average

LT: Riley Reiff-Average
LG: Laken TomlinsonYoung/2015 1st RD
C:   Travis Swanson-Young/2014 3rd RD
RG: Larry Warford-Very Good
RT:  Michael Ola-Average
OT/G: Geoff Schwartz-Good/New, will compete for a starting job at G or RT
RB: 
Ameer Abdullah-Young/2015 2nd RD/showed very few flashes as a rookie
3rd down: Theo Riddick-Good in role

NEEDS: 
LT:  Reiff is solid but would be better at RT. They could then move Ola and Schwartz inside or use them as rotational tackles
D-Line Depth: Ansah is a beast, but Ngata,Walker and Taylor are average at best.
WR:  Tate is good but he can't replace the loss of Calvin Johnson
DB Depth: Slay had a breakout year and proved he is one of the best corners in the league. Diggs was a pleasant surprise as a rookie and Quin is a reliable starter. However they have unproven guys at SS and CB.
