With a new head coach and general manager comes a new set of philosophies. John Fox hired Vic Fangio to run his defense, but Chicago is nowhere near configured to run Fangio's 3-4. Finding a good nose tackle, as well as outside linebackers to rush the passer, is critical. Shea McClellin is a better 3-4 fit than he was in the 4-3, but the Bears may not keep him around at the high cost. Free agent signings Sam Acho and Pernell McPhee may give them ability to wait, but an elite talent will likely be available to them with their first pick and could be hard to pass. Kyle Fuller really stepped in nicely at corner, but Tim Jennings is 31 and regressing. Chicago also needs free safety help (a thorn in their side for years now) as Brock Vereen hasn't locked down the position. On offense a wide receiver to replace Brandon Marshall could be sought early. Right tackle is a position the Bears could find a starter in the mid rounds. Center Roberto Garza is 36, so that is worth noting.
