Don't dismiss edge rusher as Bears' top priority in 2020 NFL draft

The Chicago Bears' offseason needs are pretty clear and obvious. They need a veteran quarterback to compete with Mitch Trubisky for the starting job. They need a tight end to catch passes from said quarterback. And they need an upgrade along the offensive line to protect, again, said quarterback.

But it's just as important to make sure the defense has the tools needed to attack the opposing quarterback on a weekly basis, and with former first-round pick Leonard Floyd's ship officially sailing down the bust canal, GM Ryan Pace may have no choice but to use the 2020 NFL draft as the means to a pass-rushing end.
