Sometimes, there are foods that take you right back to elementary school. For me, and I’m sure I’m not alone on this, that food is Lunchables. Unlike former Clemson Tigers linebacker, and undrafted free agent Ben Boulware, who has signed with the Carolina Panthers, I grew out of them as I got older.
It was a questionable move at the time and became a full-blown disaster as the season went on. Osweiler’s 72.2 QB Rating was second-worst among qualified quarterbacks, ahead of only Ryan Fitzpatrick.
Here lies the issue most have with Chicago’s decision to select Trubisky. Even 49ers GM John Lynch thought the Bears were trading up to draft a guy like Solomon Thomas and address a massive need in a class stuffed with versatile defensive line talent.
Yes, left end Akiem Hicks is a beast who should produce even better in a contract year. But he’s the only sure bet on the front of the Bears’ 3-4 under Fangio. Nose tackle Eddie Goldman has all the potential in the world, but his shaky injury history forced Chicago to sign John Jenkins for depth in the wake of Will Sutton’s departure.
The Bears hope their savior in this position group will be second-year right end Jonathan Bullard, who provided flashes last season but struggled with consistency. He and Mitch Unrein again will split time unless Bullard improves and earns the vast majority of snaps. Without Cornelius Washington and Ego Ferguson, depth on the defensive line is an issue.
Charles Clay has not played up to his contract, and the Bills’ reported interest in free-agent tight ends signals a desire to improve at the position. But they did not address tight end in the draft.

While Clay figures to enter the season as Buffalo’s No. 1 tight end, the team hopes Nick O’Leary can become an adequate No. 2. Also worth watching is the development of Logan Thomas, who was signed as a converted quarterback. (Taylor, after all, has thrown touchdown passes to Thomas in the past.)
