Mock Draft season has started and one of the better draft analysts, Daniel Jeremiah has recently released a mock draft. What does his mock draft mean for the Chicago Bears?
Everyone knows the name Mel Kiper when it comes to the NFL Draft. Whether it is his hair or the fact that he was one of the first big names when it came to analyzing NFL draft prospects, he is now somewhat famous. That said, he has not been very accurate when it comes to his mock drafts. His counterpart Todd McShay has actually been much more accurate. With the Chicago Bears not having a first-round pick, do these mock drafts matter?
Rather than take a look at the fancy names at ESPN, we are going to take a look at Daniel Jeremiah’s recent mock draft instead. Jeremiah was ranked 14th last year in mock draft accuracy according to FantasyPros. The mock draft only takes a look at the first round.
Despite not having a first-round selection, the mock draft allows us to see who is still available in the second round. At some point, many of these analysts will prepare a mock draft beyond the first round, however, until then we can gauge how the second round my shakeup.
Recently I spoke about how the Chicago Bears cannot ignore the wide receiver position. This sparked some serious debate. Some would love the idea of adding another top receiving prospect while others claim the position is already deep and there are areas of greater need.
Obviously, the offensive line and tight end need to be addressed this offseason. Whether this happens through the draft or free agency is yet to be determined. If Ryan Pace completely ignores these positions we are in trouble. Furthermore, many also consider quarterback a major need. Even then, is Pace going to look for a new starter or quality backup in free agency? Will he also add a top developmental quarterback to play behind Trubisky?
We will take a look at some of the big names coming off the board and see if any players we like slip into the second round.
