We told you three weeks ago that Bears offensive coordinator Mike Martz was beating the bushes looking for potential backup quarterbacks, including a trip to Moscow Idaho to visit with Nathan Enderle.
The trip was a productive one. Martz convinced the Bears to take Enderle on Saturday with the No. 160 overall pick.
It was Chicago’s only fourth pick of the draft, so it’s not one to take lightly. The Bears want long-term options to develop behind Jay Cutler other than Caleb Hanie.
Martz has only one year left on his contract. He is going to have a lot of leverage because the team is putting a lot of resources into finding guys that fit his system.
