Outside my window, it looks like an advertisement for Headspace or Calm apps. It’s just rain falling on the sidewalk. Quite soothing. If only the whole day was so quiet.

• Here’s an example of how crazy the 2022 NFL Draft can be:

• Three first-round QBs? It would be a victory. Remember, the more quarterbacks that get into the first round, the better the Bears’ pick will be. And if they all go to the NFC South, that would make for a fun narrative follow-up. On the other end of the spectrum, the prediction of a single R1 QB bothers me. It’s a realistic possibility that teams will hit the box on the road and wait until Day 2. Maybe a series of quarterbacks before the Bears pick at 39. But if so, that will make the first moments of the second day of the draft nervous.

• Maybe 3+ quarterbacks in Round 1 isn’t a wild idea. Doug Kyed (PFF) connects to league sources and shares a list of eight players who could sneak into the first round. Two of those players are quarterbacks, with North Carolina’s Sam Howell and Cincinnati’s Desmond Ridder being candidates to top their current projection draft. . And if an edge runner (Boye Mafe of Minnesota), a linebacker (Quay Walker of Georgia) or a safety (Jaquan Brisker of Penn State) also enters the fray, it would really put the Bears in control in their quest to get a first-round caliber talent at one of their greatest need positions in Round 2 with the 39th pick.

• Of course, one thing that could upset the Bears’ plans is if players who might be in good shape along the offensive line end up surprisingly off the board in the first round. For what it’s worth, OTs Abraham Lucas (Washington State) and Rasheed Walker (Penn State) and WR Christian Watson (North Dakota State) also get some late first-round buzz. All three were sent to Chicago in recent fictional drafts, so it’s worth keeping an eye on all of this as we rush into the draft weekend.

• Even still…I won’t worry if my top receiver option isn’t available when the Bears are on the clock. They should have options:

• What do Devin Hester, Mike Brown, Peanut Tillman, Alshon Jeffery and Matt Forte have in common? Besides being all former Chicago Bears, each was a second-round pick who earned Pro Bowl honors during his playing career in Chicago. On the official Bears website, Larry Mayer rides through the flurry of studs the team picked in the second round over the years. It’s a good reminder that there’s hellish value to be had with two second-round picks in hand.
