Bear Goggles On’s 2012 Mock Draft 1.0 – Bears Go Defense Again

2 of 3

12. Seattle Seahawks
Luke Kuechly, ILB, Boston College
The Seahawks have the makings of a really nice secondary, but need some help in the front 7 to make the defense formidable. Kuechly fits the bill.

13. Arizona Cardinals
Dre Kirkpatrick, CB, Alabama
The Cards could use help along the offensive line or at wide receiver, but can’t pass on the value of Kirkpatrick at this spot to hold down one of their CB spots.

14. Dallas Cowboys
David DeCastro, G, Stanford
The Cowboys need some help on the interior offensive line and will jump at the chance to grab the top interior linemen prospect in the draft.

15. Philadelphia Eagles
Michael Floyd, WR, Notre Dame
DeSean Jackson’s days with the Eagles seem to be done and they need a big body receiver to pair opposite Jeremy Maclin.

16. New York Jets
Whitney Mercilus, DE, IL
Rex Ryan can’t help himself and grabs an end to bolster his attacking defense.

17. Cincinnati Bengals (from Oakland)
Mark Barron, S, Alabama
How many Alabama guys get picked in the first round?  Geez.

18. San Diego Chargers
Brandon Jenkins, DE/OLB, Florida State
The Chargers need to rejuvenate their pass rush and Jenkins will do well as an OLB in their 3-4 scheme.

19. Chicago Bears
Melvin Ingram, DE, South Carolina
With the top wide receivers off the board, the Bears try to find some pass rushing help opposite Peppers.

20. Tennessee Titans
Devon Still, DT, Penn State
The Titans need help up the middle and the 6’5″ 311 lb Still provides just that.
