Bears UFA Targets:

This is a very deep draft. There are probably 25-30 more players not drafted in my mock that have legit NFL potential. Since this is a Bears site, I am going to list some undrafted players I think the Bears should target as undrafted free agents. I’m sorry, I can’t stop! I wish there were more rounds to mock.

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

QB Aaron Murray, Georgia (6’1, 201) - He’s a little shorter than ideal and doesn’t have a big arm. What he does have is great accuracy on short-to-mid range passes, good mobility, and all the intangibles you look for in a QB. I see him developing into a solid back-up who can win a few games in relief.

RB Tim Flanders, Sam Houston St (5’9, 212) - His frame and running style remind me so much of ex-Bear Thomas Jones. Flanders has great vision and is a tough inside runner and reliable receiver out of the backfield. For his career Flanders put up 5,406 rushing yards and scored 63 touchdowns.

RB David Fluellen, Toledo (5’11, 226) - Stocky back with good vision and good power between the tackles. The Bears could be looking for a short yardage replacement if they release Michael Bush and Fluellen could fill that role. He’s an excellent receiver out of the backfield and a reliable pass blocker as well. Fluellen helped his stock at the Senior Bowl rushing for 44 yards on 8 carries and breaking a few tackles.

WR Cody Hoffman, BYU (6’4, 218) - Great size, uses his body well, and has excellent hands. Hoffman isn’t a burner by any stretch of the imagination, but knows how to get open and can catch the ball. He’s also very good in the red zone (26 TDs last 3 seasons).

TE Jake Murphy, Utah (6’4, 252) - Well rounded tight end who can block, run good routes, has soft hands, and is tough to bring down after he catches the ball. He’s also baseball Hall of Famer Dale Murphy’s son!

TE Jordan Najvar, Baylor (6’6, 260) - Has ideal size for a tight end and was a solid blocker in college. Unfortunately blocking was all he did at Baylor; Najvar had only 10 catches for 85 yards as a senior. Najvar was the surprise of the Shrine game practices, displaying good hands, fluid mobility and a knack for finding soft spots in cover-2 and cover-3 zones. Najvar is a potential 3-down TE and would give the Bears a #2 TE with upside.

DT Shamar Stephen, Connecticut (6’5, 308) - Good size and very strong, Stephen was a solid run-stuffer in college where he was coached by new Bears D-line coach Paul Pasqualoni. I wouldn’t be surprised if Stephen ends up in the Bears camp either as a UFA or a 6th round pick.

Mike Carter-USA TODAY Sports

LB Denicos Allen, Michigan St (5’11, 220) - If Allen were a few inches taller and 10 pounds heavier he’d be a day 2 pick. He’s a heck of a football player. Allen is very fast (4.5ish), has great instincts, and is a sure tackler despite his small frame. He’s also a violent blitzer and good in coverage. Allen is never going to get any taller, but he’s about the same size as Bronces LB Wesley Woodyard (6’0, 230) who has been an excellent weak side linebacker.

LB Khairie Fortt, California (6’2, 240) - Like Allen above and Spruill below, I’m not sure why Fortt isn’t ranked higher by national analysts. Forrt has good speed (4.6ish), good run / pass recognition, can cover TEs and RBs, and is a big hitter. Like most big hitters, he misses a few while going for the knockout and he’s also stiff in zone coverage. Those seem like minor flaws to me and I would be pretty surprised if Fortt doesn’t get drafted. He also has the versatility to play outside in a 4-3 or inside in a 3-4.

LB Marquis Spruill, Syracuse (6’1, 229) - Intense player who is a violent blitzer and big-hitter all over the field. He’s small for an NFL linebacker, but he has played safety at times for the Orange so that could be an option at the next level. If Spruill stays at LB he will need to get a little stronger, but he is a max-effort player, who plays mean, and his solid instincts keep him around the ball consistently. Worst case, he’ll be a special teams standout.

CB Ricardo Allen, Purdue (5’9, 187) - Cocky, aggressive corner with good ball skills. Due to his lack of size, he struggles with big receivers but is a strong defender against the 6 foot and under crowd. Ideal skill-set for a nickel back and he has the swagger and short memory necessary for a successful corner in the league.

CB Carrington Byndom, Texas (6’0, 180)  - Good size, fast, and plays hard all the time. His technique needs work, but he has the physical traits and right attitude to become a starting corner in the league. A lot of draft sites had him on their top 5 CB lists going into the 2013 season, but like the rest of the Longhorns he had a mediocre year. He still has that top 5 potential, Byndom just might need another year or two more to develop. Great practice squad stash.

FS Nickoe  Whitley, Mississippi St (6’0, 205) - Ultra-aggressive safety who constantly goes for the big-hit. His violent play tends to get Whitley in trouble at times, he racked up far too many personal fouls, including one for punching an opposing player. He needs to get his emotions under control, but his fiery playing style does cause plenty of turnovers; Whitley had 15 interceptions and 5 forced fumbles during his time with the Bulldogs. He has been injury prone with a ruptured achilles in 2011 and a torn ACL in 2013, but the ACL tear happened in week 3 of the CFB season and he played through it the rest of the year! That’s pretty amazing. Whitley has his share of warts, but the Bears need some toughness and Whitley has that in spades.

SS BooBoo Gates, Bowling Green (5’11, 227) - You won’t find Gates on many prospect lists, but he is a well-rounded strong safety with enough skills to play at the next level. He’s a good hitter against the run, solid in coverage, and explosive enough to return two kicks and a punt for TDs during his college career. Gates will excel on special teams coverage off the bat, is a dangerous return man, and has the potential to develop into a starting safety down the road.

  • Zach Haugen

    I love everything about this draft for the vikings. Would be very happy with the haul and the holes being filled. If anthony johnson is gone in 5th like you say Mcculers from tennesse could fill a pat williams type role. Also only pick i disagree with is 6th round tackle. Just to many needs to get another tackle. Get a d back or running back. We def could use a third down back without gerhart. Overall excellent though.

    • Mike Flannery

      Thanks Zach. I think they need some offensive line depth, but you are right that a RB makes sense there. At the time I thought they were going to bring back Gerhart, but everything I’ve seen lately says he’s a goner. As a Bears fan I won’t miss him. I could see the Vikes using that pick on Antonio Andrews from WKU or Tyler Gaffney from Stanford, they are both power backs like Gerhart. Or Wisconsin’s James White who is probably the best all-around back still available at that point.

  • Riley Emmer

    I don’t think the Vikes go QB in round 1 Here’s why:
    1. Spielman will be gun shy, after pulling the trigger and having it backfire in 2011. His jobs on the line.
    2. Defensive minded coach taking over one of the worst defenses in the league last year. With so much talent on the board at 8 (or later– preferably they trade back)
    3. There’s a lot of potential in the later round QBs, (Jimmy, Mett, and Murray are my favorite of this years class).
    4. Reports today that the Vikings will be meeting with 8 or 9 QBs.

    I personally believe that the Vikings will trade back out of 8 and go defense in round 1. Safety, DT, and LB are positions they’ll look at. (I’m leaving CB out because I think they sign Verner in FA, and are reluctant to give up on Josh Robinson). If they stay at 8 it’s because Mack, Barr, or Watkins are still on the board (Yes… I think they’re more likely to take Watkins than Carr in rd 1. it’s hard not to salivate at the prospect of Watkins, Patterson, Peterson, Rudolph, and Jennings in the same offense. That being said, I doubt they take him even if he’s there).
    Mettenberger seems like Norvs kind of QB, so I can see them taking him comfortably in round 2. His ACL is healing up at a pace that is reportedly “close” to ADs. and is throwing as of early this month. I’d love to see them take Murray in the 4th or 5th.. just cause I think the kids a hell of a player.

    • Mike Flannery

      As a Bears fan, I hope the Vikes wait on a QB. They can add talent at other offensive positions or on defense, but without a decent QB they are still going to be mediocre.

      Carr would be an upgrade over what they have now at QB and I’m not sure anyone from the next tier (Mett, Garapp, Murray) would be. Maybe in a few years, but how many great ones does AP have left?

      I agree that trading down would be ideal, but with such a deep draft I think a lot of teams will have the same idea which will make it tough to pull off.

  • mtblaze

    I looked it up and the Seahawks receivers dropped the fewest passes in 2013 and they are tied for 3rd in lowest drop percentage.. You need to clean your beer goggles.

    • Mike Flannery

      My bad. I didn’t research that one obviously. I swear every time I watched the Seahawks, Golden Tate dropped at least one pass he should of caught.

    • Mike Flannery

      Just out of curiosity, do you not think they need upgrades at WR?

      • mtblaze

        I think they will probably drop Sydney Rice so they will need to acquire a taller receiver. I think we should resign Golden Tate and am happy with Harvin, Tate, Baldwin, Kearse and a taller receiver to be acquired later.

        • Mike Flannery

          Good call. They dropped Rice 6 days ago. I think they will draft a WR pretty high (first 3 rounds) as insurance in case Harvin gets hurt or has migraine issues again. Russell deserves another weapon or two.

  • jordan

    ya saying seattle drop the most passes is complete bs! there is a lot of hate for a team that just one a superbowl….

  • Caleb Shore

    Did this mock have Aaron Murray? Maybe I missed it but I don’t see Tennessee taking Logan Thomas. We’ve gambled on a QB with no brain before and we won’t make that mistake again. Ruston Webster knows how to draft, and I imagine he’d much rather have a guy like Murray who will be a great value pick coming off injury, I think they’d take him in the 4th

    • Mike Flannery

      I had Murray as my top UFA, due to lack of height and uncertainty over his injury, but I’m hearing he’s got a good shot to go in the 3rd-5th if he has a good / healthy pro day. He’ll be in my next version for sure.

  • Pingback: Jeremiah George at Combine - Page 3

  • Bob Romano

    This would be a great draft for the Bears. I’m not sure if Pryor will still be on the board at 51 but if he is that would be a great pick. In the 5th round if Aaron Lynch is still on the board I would take him over Marsh but Marsh could still be a good pick. I think Reid is definitely worth the gamble in the 4th round, he could end up being a beast. Finally if the Bears can get Stork in the 6th round I think the O-Line could be top 5 in the league a few years down the road.

    • Mike Flannery

      I love Aaron Lynch’s potential and had the Bears taking him in a different mock, but I am hearing sooo much negativity about his attitude and work ethic, that I couldn’t do it. If the Bears already had a decent defense in place and could afford to miss, then sure roll the dice. They don’t though and have so many holes that they need to come out of this draft with 4-5 guys that can contribute on D in 2014.

  • P2THAR

    Bruce McGill? I think you mean Keith McGill. And I’m hoping he lasts until the Bills’ pick.

    • Mike Flannery

      Good catch on McGill. Ha. I did that in another article too. Why do I keep wanting to call him Bruce? Weird. Though Bruce McGill was in Last Boy Scout, which was awesome. Maybe that’s it.

      • P2THAR

        Yes, last boy scout was def awesome! I have yet to watch the combine, did Denicos Allen not participate?

        • Mike Flannery

          Denicos Allen wasnt invited! Can you believe that BS? Was one of the best LBs in the big ten the last two years! He’s small but a much better football player than some of the guys that got invited. If I were a GM I would of at least wanted to see what he ran in the 40 and how he did in the drills so I could evaluate if Allen can play SS in the NFL. He’ll catch on somewhere as a special teams ace.

          • P2THAR

            I agree, watched him during his career, as I’m a huge ND fan, and this makes me want him to be Buffalo’s 7th round pick even more. He seems to me like a guy who’d use this as motivation to prove “experts” wrong. I’ll be taking note of his pro day closer now.

  • P2THAR

    Not the draft I would’ve picked for the Bills, but if your analysis of the players is correct I’ll be happy with it. I haven’t followed those players in particular cuz I have a bunch of guys I’m hoping they take that I’ve followed closer, but in this mock they won’t get many of em… guys like Martavis Bryant, Keith McGill, Arthur Lynch, Cyril Richardson, Greg Robinson, Troy Niklas, Mike Davis, Xavier Su’a-Filo, Marcus Roberson, Kyle Van Noy, Brandon Thomas, Dri Archer… But I gotta say not only do I love that you did 7 rounds, but analysis on every pick… Outstanding. Only guy I’ve seen do it.
