Defensive coordinator Mel Tucker will not be directing the Bears’ 2014 draft, but the single biggest key to the Bears season lies in general manager Phil Emery and his staff finding the skill sets
The Bears defense had a rough go of things last season, battling injuries and allowing big days for opposing players.
But could that side of the ball lose even more?
Charles Tillman and Julius Peppers would no doubt like to forget the 2013 season, at least on some level.
General manager Phil Emery issued a draft mission statement that the Bears would weight their draft heavily toward the defensive side of the ball.
It may not make Bears defensive end Julius Peppers feel any younger, but Peppers was the football ideal of at least one member of the Denver Broncos defensive line in this Super Bowl.
