Matt Eberflus on His Scouting Philosophy: ‘He has to have a love of the game’

Chicago Bears coach Matt Eberflus met with the media Tuesday at the 2023 NFL Combine and outlined what he prioritizes when evaluating NFL Draft prospects.

“We’re going to evaluate the number first,” Eberflus said. “It doesn’t matter if it’s free agency or draft, we evaluate that. The passion that they have, the competes that they have on the field is the most important thing. And then we’ve got to figure out culturally, does he fit as a person? As a teammate and all those things. But No. 1 he has to have love for the game.”
