Not surprisingly, the Chicago Bears are looking for a quarterback. With names like Deshaun Watson and Russell Wilson on the transfer market, the team should take an aggressive approach to the position this season. This could include a review of the position in the project. Whether or not they bring in a first caliber player, the team needs to add some young talent at that position. Reserve positions have been used for older players in recent years with little success. Ryan Pace and Matt Nagy should be looking to doping in the later rounds instead of sticking with the Tyler Bray’s of the world. Texas Longhorns quarterback Sam Ehlinger could be their man.

Who’s Sam Ehlinger?


When Matt Nagy talked about what he looks for in a quarterback, he referred to versatility. Ehlinger, who was named a true freshman starter, was thrown to the Wolves early in his college career. He responded well to pressure and showed a versatile style in the air and on the ground. He became a four-year starter and an annual Heisman candidate for the Texas Longhorns. Surrounded by questionable talent and high expectations, Ehlinger made good on his promise by carrying the Texas offense annually. In his four seasons, he has produced the following numbers in the air:

Games Additions Tests Percentage Yards Touchdowns Intercept. Ranking
2017 9 158 275 57.5 1915 11 7 124.1
2018 14 275 425 64.7 3292 25 5 146.8
2019 13 296 454 65.2 3663 32 10 151.8
2020 10 194 322 60.2 2566 26 5 150.7

He also put up some impressive numbers on the floor and was the focal point of the offense in nearly every start for Texas.

Tests Yards Touchdowns
2017 114 381 2
2018 164 482 16
2019 163 663 7
2020 113 377 8

That’s the least we can say: Sam Ehlinger was very, very good at what he had to do.

Tom Herman connection

It all depends on the Bears’ new offensive assistant and former Texas Longhorns coach Tom Herman. Herman and Ehlinger spent all their games in Texas together and got several bowl appearances. Although there were occasionally strained relations between the two, Ehlinger and Herman always stood side by side. Having been together for four seasons, you can expect admiration and occasional tension between the two. But by the end of his career at Texas, Herman had nothing but praise for the young signal-caller.

Is that enough evidence that the Bears could target Sam Ehlinger in the upcoming NFL Draft? It’s hard to say. However, we do know that Tom Herman will have a lot of information about who the team decides to draft.

3 highlights from Chicago Bears GM Ryan Pace on Bears All Access:

1) Feels great with our inner attack.

2) Tom Herman has already had a major impact on the search for players in the draft.

3) He thinks there will be unexpected staff reductions in the league.
