In this midweek edition of Bears Bites, we take a look at the qualities that the Chicago Bears could bring to Hard Knocks, whether or not the team needs to add some depth at the tight end position, and whether this year has more depth at offensive line than last season’s draft did.
- We start with Hard Knocks, the HBO show that the Bears could very well be compelled to appear on thanks to some new NFL rules. Whether or not the Bears are actually one of the three finalists to appear on the program is up for debate, but one thing is for certain: the team has some great personalities that would play really well on the show. [Chicago Tribune]
- Adam Hoge has been doing a nice job of breaking down some of the players that the Bears could potentially select in the NFL Draft, and in this edition, he profiles tight end Jace Amaro. [CBS Chicago]
- Despite Hoge’s profile of Amaro, tight end really isn’t that big of a position of need for the Bears….although they could feasibly go for the position as a depth addition late. [Daily Herald]
- Speaking of positions that the Bears don’t really need to work that hard at addressing, the wide receiver position is one that they are strong at. [ESPN Chicago]
- The Bears might be looking for cornerback help in the draft, but they may not look for it in the first round. Picking a defensive tackle or safety seems more and more likely with each passing day. [Chicago Sun-Times]
- Finally, we take a look at an interesting question posed by Yahoo Sports: is the offensive line position a stronger position in this year’s draft than it was during last year’s draft? [Shutdown Corner]
