Who are the best and worst Bears draft picks from 2015?

SHARE Who are the best and worst Bears draft picks from 2015?

NFL.com writer Chase Goodbread breaks down the best and worst draft picks for each team in the NFL, and Bears’ worst selection might surprise some Bears fans.

Goodbread thought the Bears’ best draft pick was their first selection of West Virginia receiver Kevin White. The Bears used their 7th overall pick to give quarterback Jay Cutler more weapons in the passing game.

The Bears have hitched their offensive wagon to Jay Cutler, and if it’s ever going to roll at peak performance, an abundance of weapons surrounding the interception-prone quarterback is a must. White was brought in to replace Brandon Marshall’s productivity, and he could do that and then some as a rookie.

Goodbread thinks former Michigan State running back Jeremy Langford isn’t tough enough to play in the NFC North. The Bears took Langford in the fourth round to complement Matt Forte.

In a physical division like the NFC North, Langford isn’t a very physical rusher. If the Bears are counting on Langford to be a third-down specialist, he might be fine. But if they’re looking for more, he could disappoint. David Cobb from Minnesota would have been a better pick from a toughness standpoint.
