75756A5E-120A-4932-810C-2FD980DB785E
(670 The Score) As our country craves some semblance of normalcy and sports, the NFL Draft is almost here.
It will be in unprecedented draft in that it's being held virtually, as Bears general manager Ryan Pace and his peers will be drafting from their homes. After the Bengals go on the clock with the No. 1 pick Thursday evening, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell will announce the selections from his basement. Prospects have been instructed to keep their watch parties to 10 or fewer people, as the CDC requires.

While the draft is being held in unique circumstances, it will be refreshing for sports fans. There will be winners and losers declared far too soon and plenty of prospects, teams and fans dreaming about the future.

Here's what to watch for and know as the Bears head into this NFL Draft.
