Maybe the best news of 2017 for the Chicago Bears is the announcement that they will coach the 2017 Senior Bowl opposite the Cleveland Browns coaching staff. This is a huge opportunity to work with and coach up some of the best players coming out in the 2017 draft.
The Senior Bowl airs on NFL Network January 28th at 1:30pm Central. Check your local listings for exact times.
A bright spot in a particularly challenging season for the Bears. A great opportunity for a good coaching staff, and front office to capitalize on the up-close and personal interaction with some of the best talent in the upcoming NFL draft*.
The opportunity if there for John Fox’s coaching staff to work closely with the top seniors. It also allows Ryan Pace and his scouts to get this priceless feedback to make good decisions. With the 3rd pick in every round of this year’s draft** and the invite to coach the Senior Bowl, there will be no excuses not to have a very solid draft. Perhaps even one that will be the foundation for multiple winning seasons for years to come.
*speaking in general terms, not stating the competency level of the Bears
**The Bears will have between the 3rd and 5th pick in each round
