Bear Goggles On’s 2012 Mock Draft 1.0 – Bears Go Defense Again
21. Cincinnati Bengals
Mike Adams, OT, Ohio State
A strong showing at the Senior Bowl practices move Adams up into the first round.
22. Cleveland Browns (from Atlanta)
Kendall Wright, WR, Baylor
Wright is a burner the Browns need to stretch opposing defenses. He rides RGIII’s coattails into Round 1.
23. Detroit Lions
Barrett Jones, OT, Alabama
Lions need to protect Stafford and Jones is the man to do it.
24. Pittsburgh Steelers
Alfonzo Dennard, CB, Nebraska
Good value pick for the Steelers to improve their secondary.
25. Denver Broncos
Lamar Miller, RB, Miami
The Bronco need RB’s to run that option with Tebow and can’t keep waiting for Knowshon Moreno to come around.
26. Houston Texans
Cordy Glenn, G, Georgia
Texans need help on the interior O-line to clear holes for Arian Foster.
27. New England Patriots (from New Orleans)
Vinny Curry, DE, Marshall
Pats need help for their 32nd ranked defense and help with the pass rush is the place to start.
28. Green Bay Packers
Nick Perry, OLB/DE, USC
The Packers get a fellow Trojan to run opposite Clay Matthews III to bolster their defense.
29. Baltimore Ravens
Vontaze Burfict, LB, Arizona State
Ravens keep re-stocking that loaded defense.
30. San Francisco 49ers
Janoris Jenkins, CB, North Alabama
Jenkins offers great value here and also returns punts. (No offense to Kyle Williams.)
31. New York Giants
Zach Brown, LB, North Carolina
Giants add some linebacker help with a great value pick in Brown.
32. New England Patriots
Antonio Allen, S, South Carolina
What’s worse than the Patriots with 1 first round pick? The Pats with 2 first rounders.
What do you think? Who would you like to see the Bears target? If the draft falls the way I’ve projected (and we know there’s virtually no chance of that!), who would you take at #19 for the Bears?
