After months of waiting, the 2014 NFL draft is finally here!
Beginning this Thursday with the first round and going straight through the seventh round on Saturday, we here at Bleacher Report will be keeping you up to date on each of the Chicago Bears' 2014 draft picks.
After improving the team this offseason with the additions of defensive ends Jared Allen, Lamarr Houston and Willie Young, general manager Phil Emery still has plenty of work to do in the 2014 draft.
Despite those additions along the defensive line, there is still a need for a young defensive tackle who can create pressure and play well against the run. There is also a glaring need in the secondary, particularly at the safety position.
Luckily for Emery and the Bears, the 2014 draft is filled with talent at defensive tackle, safety and cornerback and it would come as no surprise if any of those three positions are addressed in the first round.
As each of the team's picks are announced, be sure to check back here as I will provide real-time results as well as analysis and grades for each new member of the Chicago Bears.
