Chicago Bears Mock Draft 1.0

0

The NFL Draft is quickly approaching and the Chicago Bears need a ton of help. The Bears are going to have to get younger in a lot of places while finding some day one contributors with limited picks in the early rounds. Thankfully for the Bears this draft is pretty deep in a ton of areas that the Bears needs some help. Look right at wide receivers and offensive line. While the Bears may not get some of the flashy names at those positions, they should be able to find some contributors and ultimately core guys. Let’s dive right into our first official mock draft.

2nd Round, Pick 48 – Skyy Moore, WR, Western Michigan

In 12 games last year for Western Michigan, Moore had 95 receptions, 1,292 yards, and 10 touchdowns. His height doesn’t essentially ”wow” you right away but he is an explosive wide receiver that would make an immediate impact on this Bears’ offense.

2nd Round, Pick 54Roger McCreary, CB, Auburn

McCreary is a name that has popped up on my radar here in recent days. I wasn’t so keen on the Bears taking a corner so early considering the needs on the offensive line and at wide receiver but McCreary may be too good to pass on. He is a bit undersized at 5ft 11in but he does have the ability to cover anyone on the field. Could be a nice addition to pair with Jaylon Johnson.

3rd Round, Pick 71Luke Goedeke, G, Central Michigan

I got the Bears attacking the directional Michigan’s with two of their first two picks of the draft. While this feels like a bit of a Ryan Pace pick here because of injury concerns that Goedeke has. His upside feels like a big plus that can’t be ignored. Goedeke played tackle at Central Michigan but projects out as a guard in the NFL.

5th Round, Pick 147 – Romeo Doubs, WR, Nevada

Everyone is going to sound like a broken record player at this point. The Bears need talent and depth at the wide receiver position. You can expect them to take multiple receivers in this draft considering that it is a deep class. Doubs was one of the standouts from the Senior Bowl and may be an under-the-radar target for Justin Fields.

5th Round, Pick 150 – Enyi Uwazurike, DL, Iowa State

The Bears defense needs some studs in the middle of the defensive line. That hole is only more glaring after the failed physical of Larry Ogunjobi. Uwazurike has gotten better every year at Iowa State and not only overpower with a bull rush but can beat you on the outside. Would be an intriguing prospect to have grow in Matt Eberflus’ defense.

6th Round, Pick 186 – Matt Araiza, Punter, San Diego State

The punt god! Need I say more. The Bears need a punter and this guy can flip field position with the best of them. During his time at San Diego State, Araiza crushed a ton of punts which included punts off 77, 81, and 86 yards. Not only does he fill a bit of a need for the Bears but he may be an upgrade at the punter position.
