Build Through the Draft

Alright, first of all, I am tired of hearing people say that the Chicago Bears need to use one of their second-round picks on a tight end or offensive lineman. The thing is, when you draft two players inside the top 50, they need to be playmakers. Most offensive lineman and tight ends do not make an immediate impact. Many take years to reach their full potential. The Bears should look to wait on those positions.

Second Round (Picks 43 and 50)

As I just made mention, adding playmakers is key. In my scenario, Jalen Reagor drops to the Bears at number 43. Taking him there would be an amazing deal. He is a first-round talent in my opinion and I hope he falls.

Up next, the team grabs an edge rusher. Somehow, Terrell Lewis is also there in the second round. These two picks could be completely flip-flopped, but the Bears need to add one or both of these players if available.

Fourth Round (Compensatory)

Ryan Pace looks to add either a tight end like Thaddeus Moss or Adam Trautman if one falls. Still, this is not the most ideal spot to me for either of these players. They are talented enough to go higher in the draft, but at this point, the Bears should be drafting a quarterback.

Anthony Gordon is the guy that I like in this range of the draft. He has a big arm and looks to at least be the next Gordon Minshew.

Fifth Round (Pick 163)

The Chicago Bears should look to add a safety, offensive lineman or corner at this spot. Geno Stone could be an option or maybe even Julian Blackmon. Both are safeties Ryan Pace should consider as depth behind Karl Joseph and Eddie Jackson.

Sixth Round (Pick 196 and 200)

Calvin Throckmorton (OL) out of Oregon would be a guy I would target in this range. He looks to have some potential and may even need to be selected with the team’s fifth-round pick instead. Lamar Jackson (not the quarterback) could be an option also. He is a corner out of Nebraska who looks to have some potential at the NFL level. Tyler Clark (DL) would be another name at another position the team could consider.

Seventh Round (Pick 233)

Finally, to finish off the draft, the team should look to add the tight end I hope falls here. Stephen Sullivan is the other tight end out of LSU. He is not as high of a profile of a name or prospect as Thaddeus Moss, but he looks to be a legit tight end who can both block and catch the ball.

Next. Mock Draft has Bears taking QB and TE. dark

If the Chicago Bears are able to follow an offseason very similar to what has been laid out here, the team should be a lock for the playoffs and will also push for a Super Bowl.
