NFL Draft – Big Board & Complete Position Rankings

Randy Sartin-USA TODAY Sports

With the NFL draft a little less than a month away, I thought it was about time I posted my position rankings. The Bears have far fewer holes than they did at the beginning of the off-season, so it’s feasible that they could really draft any position. You can see what positions I think they will target in my latest mock draft, but Emery has been very unpredictable in his short time running the Bears so your guess is probably as good as mine. Throughout the next month I will list my rankings at each position with some analysis of the players and occasional commentary on whether they would be a good fit for the Bears. If you think my rankings are way off or if I forgot anybody, let me know about it in the comments.

Positions: QB | RB WR | TE | T | G | C | DT | DE | ILB | OLB | CB SS | FS

Big Board:

1.) DE Jedeveon Clowney, South Carolina – I like Mack better, but Clowney gets the edge on upside.

2.) LB Khalil Mack, Buffalo – Closest thing to LT since LT.

3.) OT Greg Robinson, Auburn – Again, upside wins out over Matthews.

4.) OT Jake Matthews, Texas A&M – Safest pick in the draft.

5.) DT Aaron Donald, Pittsburgh - If he is available at 14 and the Bears pass on him… I will be devastated.

6.) QB Teddy Bridgewater, Louisville – Pro days don’t mean that much to me, best game tape of the QB prospects.

7.) QB Johnny Manziel, Texas A&M – Lowest floor of top 10, but highest ceiling and a potential franchise changer.

8.) WR Sammy Watkins, Clemson - A little worried that 57% of his catches were screen passes, but only a little.

    I still wonder if the Bears go with Mosley should he be there at 14. There’s a good chance he’ll be the best player available, and a guy they can plug in as their starting MLB for the next decade who will lead the defense.

    • Mike Flannery

      Agreed. I’d rather have Donald if he was available, but it would be hard to complain about taking Mosley.

    First 2 picks should be safety and corner, in either order.

    Gilbert/Bucannon would be ideal by my estimation.

    We’ve been playing around drafting a safety every year for a decade in different rounds. It’s time to draft a top flight first round talent to anchor the back end of the defense. Pryor or HaHa at 14….there’s much depth on the D-Line in the second or third rounds.
