The Chicago Bears have plenty of options with the #7 pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, with of those options being a potential trade-up scenario to land 2014 Heisman Trophy winner Marcus Mariota.
Per NFL Media's Albert Breer and ESPN's Adam Schefter, Mariota visited the Bears in Chicago at the beginning of April:
As @AdamSchefter said, Marcus Mariota met with the Bears. I'm told that meeting happened at the beginning of the month in Chicago.

While Chicago is in need of both pass rush help and help on the interior of the defensive line, NFL media analyst Daniel Jeremiah believes that Mariota presents a perfect fit for Chicago -- whether he falls to them or they potential trade up to get him.
"You have Jay Cutler there, and that's a good thing," Jeremiah said recently. "You let Marcus Mariota sit and develop for a couple of years. ... I think you could have a nice payoff if you're allowed to develop Marcus Mariota on the practice field, and Jay Cutler gives you that opportunity."
