Fit for Chicago Bears
Meeks definitely has to be on the board of the Chicago Bears. To start, they will certainly be enticed by his height. The Bears are always looking for longer cornerbacks, and could be looking to replace Prince Amukamara who stands at 6’1″.
The Bears have to like his understanding and background as a hard-working, even headed player. As an early second round pick, he may have a bit too many questions concerning his long speed and hip fluidity. However, if he winds up dropping a bit, Meeks is a player the Bears could trade up into the middle of the draft for.
