The Chicago bears seven-round mock draft.
Mock draft season is one of my favorite times of the year. Being a Chicago Bears fan can be exciting and stressful. When the team is coming off a great season, expectations usually are very high. Fans will expect top 25 draft picks to become game changers and become the finishing touch to win a super bowl the next season.
When the Chicago Bears come off a bad season, fans expect that same high expectation. Fans feel that the old front office members should be relieved, and a new one should come in with the ability to turn a 3-12 team into a super bowl contender within the next two seasons.
What about a middle-of-the-road season though? A team that went 7-9 to 9-7. Not quite good enough to make the playoffs but also not bad enough to fear their jobs and gain a top-10 draft selection. Those Chicago Bear teams seem to get the worst of it all from fans. Half of the fans want someone new to come in while the other half of the fans feel that the team just needs a spark plug to become that contender. I tend to be a glass half full kind of fan.
Mock drafts and big boards are tricky. What we see on TV is one thing, but what some NFL teams see is another thing. Fans should try to know and understand our general manager and front office. Sure, anyone could come away looking amazing in a mock draft. They could select a guy that they like or even trade up to gain multiple first-round draft picks.
They could even do the opposite and acquire 15 or more draft picks between day two and day three. Not only are these scenarios unrealistic, but it is also just going to set one’s self up for disappointment.
The Chicago Bears have seven draft day selections as they enter the 2020 NFL Draft. That does not mean they will finish with seven draft day selections. This mock draft is going to dive into who was available a few picks sooner and what the options could be further down the road to include possible trade options. I will also show what my best guess would be if I were inside Ryan Pace’s head and was not making any trades.
