What do the Bears stand to gain from the NFL Draft?

Chicago is, as they say, “On The Clock”, as the city plays host to the NFL draft for the first time in 50 years. While the popularity of the league is undeniable, many still wonder how the draft-featuring names folks have never heard of and who may never be stars-has become this huge multi-day event big enough to shut down a large section of a major city’s downtown. Oh, and by the way, who will the Bears pick up, and can they make an immediate impact. Andrew Siciliano hosts Around the NFL on NFL Network and host of DIRECTV's Red Zone Channel.
