Showcasing Chicago Bears' Biggest Strengths and Draft Needs

It is a time of change in the Windy City, as the Chicago Bears decided to fire head coach Lovie Smith following a 10-6 season. 

Despite the strong record, five losses in six weeks from Weeks 10-15 spelled doom for the Bears. They had a chance to make the playoffs on the final day of the season, but Minnesota's win over Green Bay crushed those dreams. 

Now, with new head coach Marc Trestman and second-year general manager Phil Emery, the Bears are looking to instill a consistent winning culture. All of that starts on the offensive side of the ball. 

Even though the Bears are known for their strong defensive prowess, that group is getting up there in age.

When Smith was fired after the season, one of the biggest reasons was because there was never any progress made with the offense. It also didn't help Smith's case that he was hired under former general manager Jerry Angelo.

But now is the time for new beginnings. All of that starts with the 2012 NFL draft, so let's break down the Bears' roster heading into the big event.
