Phil Emery was just named the new general manager for the Chicago Bears yesterday, and many fans are happy about the move. Emery was brought in to improve the Bears' scouting and drafting ability, and he seems to be a great candidate for just that.
Emery has some decisions to make this offseason though, like every GM in football. The Bears have positions all over the field that need to be upgraded, and Emery is going to have to decide where he's going to upgrade those positions—through the draft or through free agency.
Obviously, it would be remarkable if Emery could fill the Bears' positions of need in one offseason, much less his first offseason with the team. However, he will be able to add instant upgrades via free agency and then draft good talent in April hoping that some young players can come in and do the job.
