Today is National Signing Day or College Football’s Draft Day. Each high school recruit is given a ranking on a star scale with 5 stars being the highest. Then each school is graded by the number of recruits they signed and the number of stars those recruits were given, similar to Draft Day grades. Many times, the star ratings end up meaning nothing. For example, JJ Watt was a 2 star recruit out of high school and many 5 star recruits go undrafted in the NFL.
Throughout the years, the Bears have drafted some 5 recruits and currently have 3 on the roster.
After taking a bye week, Jordan and I return to discuss the Bears’ dysfunction revolving around offensive coordinator Aaron Kromer’s stunning admission, outlined here in the Chicago Tribune.
We discuss the likelihood of the entire coaching staff being dismissed, as well as some thoughts about the future of players like Lance Briggs and Brandon Marshall. At the same time, we take a look at the current opportunity for players like Marquess Wilson and Christian Jones over the final weeks of the regular season.
