2016 Chicago Bears Full 7 Round Mock draft 1.0
41st overall-Braxton Miller– WR-Ohio State
To have consistent successful drafts you must key in on value over need. In an ideal world you fill both with one pick. sometimes it doesn’t always work that way. That’s why in a bit of a surprise move to everyone but myself Pace pulls the trigger on possibly the most exciting big play player in the entire draft. Most fans and media expect the Bears to go defense, defense, defense, and maybe an offensive lineman, and tight end somewhere, but Pace holds true to best player available philosophy, and picks a player that’s a human highlight reel, and can be a joker type player for the Bears offense, and make them scary good.
A.)Sterling Sheppard-WR-Oklahoma- Yes that’s right another wide receiver. Not even close to one of their biggest needs, but play-makers are play-makers, and like Miller, Sheppard is one of the drafts best.
B.) Eli Apple-CB-Ohio State- Another playmaker, but on the other side of the ball. Has the size, and physicality that Vic Fangio likes in his corners, and has ball skills to boot.
C.) Artie Burns-CB-Miami- Yet another cornerback that profiles perfectly in a Fangio defense. Long, physical press man corner who also plays zone well with very good hands, and ball skills.
