Ranking Chicago Bears' Top 5 Draft Needs
Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

2013 was an up-and-down year for the Chicago Bears. The team started out of the gate quickly with three wins, struggled with losing key players but still found themselves with an opportunity to win the division during the final week of the season.

The Bears ultimately lost to the Green Bay Packers, and their struggles this season proved how much this team lacks depth.

General manager Phil Emery is more than aware of the team's need to improve its depth, particularly on defense, telling Mark Potash of the Chicago Sun-Times:

Obviously we need to improve as a defense. We had a lot of tough days defensively and a we had a tough season. There are no excuses for it. I know our fans are frustrated. I know everybody in this city is frustrated. This team is frustrated.

One of the cheapest ways of finding depth is through the draft. Emery has already proven he can find very good offensive players in the draft (Alshon Jeffery, Kyle Long), but he will have to prove he has the ability to find good defensive players that can contribute positively in their first season.

Here is our ranking of the Chicago Bears' top five draft needs.
