The 2021 NFL Draft is less than a week away and the Chicago Bears could upgrade several areas of their roster. Even though they've made the playoffs twice in the last three seasons, the Bears have yet to win a postseason game since 2010. If they want to get back on track, it starts at the draft.

The Bears will enter next week's draft with a total of eight selections, including the No. 20 pick in Round 1. With that much draft capital, the organization has plenty of opportunities to address its needs.

Keeping that in mind, here are three positions that the Bears need to address at the 2021 NFL Draft.

Chicago Bears Draft Rumors

3. Quarterback

After the Mitchell Trubisky experiment failed, the Bears need a new quarterback that they can build the future around. Andy Dalton and Nick Foles will be their signal-callers to start the season, but they're getting up there in age. With that being said, the Bears don't need to draft a quarterback at No. 20 because those two are capable of holding the job for the next season. However, if they're thinking of the future, they may want to look at guys like Davis Mills or Kellen Mond on day two.

2. Offensive Tackle

One of the team's biggest needs entering the draft has been the offensive tackle position. Thankfully, there are plenty of promising prospects in this year's class, so the Bears' shouldn't have an issue finding one in any round. If management is confident that they can address their passing game in later rounds, the 20th overall selection could be used to take one of the top offensive tackles off the board.

1. Wide Receiver

Beyond Allen Robinson and Anthony Miller, the Bears have no receiving threats. With not many options remaining in free agency, the Bears could use their first-round selection on a wide receiver. With potential playmakers like Florida's Kadarius Toney or Minnesota's Rashod Bateman being available at No. 20, the Bears could solve their pass-catching issues with ease. Besides, another credible wide receiver could really open up the field for Robinson and his production.
