Tags: 2014 Mock Draft Chicago Bears Cj Mosley

  • Erik Lambert

    I am such a big fan of them picking Mosley. He’s way too good of an all-around prospect to pass on because he’s a linebacker. He’s the kind of talent great defenses can be built around.

    I don’t see how in the world Ra’Shede Hageman falls that far into the second round. He has way too much talent to even make it out of the first.

    I like the Garoppolo idea but he will be gone by no later than the third round. I believe he’ll go early in the second.

    You could probably actually flip the Davis and Dowling picks and I would be much more accepting of it. I’m also one of those people who really hopes the Bears go after a speed receiver at some point in this draft and Tevin Reese would be huge. How defenses would plan to cover him with B-Marsh and Alshon on the field would be so fun to watch.

    • Mike “Boomer” Burzawa

      Don’t underestimate what Marquess Wilson could do next season with a essentially a redshirt season under his belt. He’ll be spending a full offseason in the Bears program and working with BMarsh, Alshon, Martellus and Forte in south Florida.

  • Mike Flannery

    I would be shocked if Hageman makes it past the first 20 picks, but you never know. I’m on board with Mosley as the the Bears 1st round pick.

    • Mike “Boomer” Burzawa

      The reason it stood out to me is a couple of years ago, I remember a lot of mocks showing Paea to the Bears in the first round, but he fell to them in Round 2. There will be runs on certain positions that could work in our favor.

  • Dr. Johnny Nacho

    If Mosley is there you have to draft him. He would likely be a day one starter and then DT’s w/ the 2nd and 3rd rounders would be awesome if worked out like that. I’m good on drafting those 5’9″-5’10″ WR’s….those are a dime a dozen in the NFL and can be picked up any offseason. Marshall, Jeffery, Earl and last year’s prospect Wilson to likely start getting work in his second training camp no need to waste the pick on another WR.

  • Dan T

    I think you have it wrong in the first round. The Bears do need to take ALL defense this draft but they have to hit the safety position in the 1st round and it is imperative that they go after Clinton-Dix. I say that because Chris Conte will never see the field again and Major Wright hasn’t shown any reason to be re-signed so the Bears have zero safeties on the roster. By drafting Clinton-Dix, you then spend some money on a Jarius Byrd/ Donte *Hitner/ T.J. Ward, you have 3/4 of your secondary figured out (with Jennings). You then use rounds 2-7 to stock up on best available d-linemen, CBs (if Peanut goes to TB) & LBs. It’s also pretty important that you resign Melton with the shortage of d-tackles in the free agent pool. He should come at a discounted price seeing as how we payed him millions for 1.5 games this year and he’s coming off a nasty injury. It also makes me mad that people say they should cut Peppers when he is better than anything else they could have at the position. The smart move would be to bring somebody in on the other side of him – say a Michael Bennett (who Martellus has said numerous times he’s trying to get to come to Chicago) so that defenses can’t key in on Peppers. I think fans forget that with Melton/Paea in the middle the first two games of the season held AP to 100 and Green-Ellis/Bernard to 49 yds combined. The defense doesn’t have to go from #32 to #5 it just has to get inside the top 15-20 which means instead of giving up 29.9 per game you’re giving up 23.3 per game … and with an offense that averaged 27.8 per game this season (and will only get better), holding teams under 24 will be enough to win.

    • Mike “Boomer” Burzawa

      My offseason plan would call for getting either Jairus Byrd or TJ Ward at safety and adding Dowling in the middle rounds. Also really like the idea of Michael Bennett at DE. I’m disagree with you about Peppers; you can go buy yourself a lot with the roughly $14 million in cap space that gets created if he’d designated as a June 1st cut. Don’t be so sure that Melton will just take a low-end offer because he got hurt last season. If Lovie (or someone else) is willing to pay him, he’ll take the highest offer. No hometown discounts.

  • metalhead65

    I like the picks except the qb.they can get by with McCown again and if he moves on trestman can get some other washed veteran he can fix for the backup job. they need every pick to on defense and need to focus on db’s after the first 2 picks. I would not be upset if they nabbed dix in round 1because the safeties are just awful.

    • Mike “Boomer” Burzawa

      I hear what you’re saying, but Trestman’s value is as a QB guru, so give him a pupil to develop. The Packers became a QB factory and kept developing guys behind Favre, turning them into more draft picks. Dix is getting a lot of love; I’m not convinced you need a Round 1 safety if you can improve your pass rush and just get a guy who knows simple angles and is a willing and capable tackler.

  • Jeremiah Collins

    No center… We have to grab Florida States Stork… Aaron Dotson or Bucannon in the second… Baptiste or Pierre Desir in the third … LSU’s DT Johnson in the fourth, and the infamous Ex Vanderbilt WR Chris Boyd… We can pick up a Linvail Joseph, Cam Thomas, Chris Clemons, Donald Butler, and Everson Griffin in free agency… But please no more Roberto Garza…
