2016 NFL Mock Draft: Chicago Bears looking for a QB?

Posted Sep 27, 2015 by Larry Seely
It's only three weeks into the 2015 NFL season, but clearly the Chicago Bears need help under center. The latest mocks have the front office looking for Jay Cutlers replacement, but with so many holes to fill, is a young quarterback the answer?

Jay Cutler and Brandon Marshall are an effective one-two punch, but they'll have their work cut out for them this week.
Shane Theodore of Today's Pigskin is like many football experts, expecting a change at QB and his latest article has Jared Goff of Cal as the answer. It's hard to argue the logic, especially with the team struggling to score points this season and with Kevin White expected back at full strength next year, this team could have their dynamic duo in place.
The early part of the first round has several lineman from both sides of the ball expected to hear their name called next April. Walter Football has All American defensive lineman Joey Bosa of Ohio State next on the player rankings and Tampa Bay as the franchise likely to land the Buckeyes star.
One team that was expected to challenge for a spot in the playoffs, but has struggled out of the gate is New Orleans. With Drew Brees now in the twilight of his career and the team not winning football games, could a signal caller be far behind?
The Saints have other issues, including help on the offensive and defensive lines, but depending on where they sit in the first round, could make it interesting to see what kind of decision the front office makes.
Connor Cook of Michigan State is also ranked highly by NFL experts and where the Spartans senior quarterback ends up starting his professional career could depend a lot on how the teams finish the year.
Cleveland looks in need of help at the position, but the Browns don't really have any breakout play makers, making it difficult to use another first round pick on a QB. Cook has all the intangibles, including high marks for his off field work habits, making him a smart choice, but this franchise needs to find more weapons or they will continue to struggle as a franchise.
