The Washington Football team has a big need at quarterback, even though Ryan Fitzpatrick will be the starter next season, yet, there isn’t anyone here worth selecting.

However, the team really needs help on the offensive line and with Alijah Vera-Tucker, Washington adds a player who can play right away and help inside or out. Plus, whenever the franchise quarterback is found, he might actually have some protection.

Chicago signed Andy Dalton in the offseason but the Bears also need a quarterback. Yet, like the Washington Football team, there isn’t anyone available, so the Bears will fill another need at corner after the release of Kyle Fuller.

Newsome has good size and speed. He only had one career interception, but he has the ability to be a shutdown guy and would help the Bears right away in the secondary.
