Position preview: Needing a starter, Bears could draft CB first

Part 1 of a 10-part series previewing the NFL Draft and analyzing the Bears’ needs.

The next cornerback the Bears draft in the first round may very well replace the last one they picked first.

General manager Ryan Pace’s decision to make 2014 first-round pick Kyle Fuller a salary cap casualty last month increased the odds — exponentially — that he’ll take a cornerback 20th overall in the draft later this month.

He might not have to look far for his next starter. Greg Newsome II grew up on the South Side and moved to Carol Stream to play at Glenbard North.
