Grant Delpit, Saftey, LSU (43)
The Jaguars took AJ Terrell (CB) just before the Bears pick. Other notable players that were selected ahead were Antoine Winfield (S), Jalen Reagor (WR), and John Simpson (G). Options left are Kyle Dugger (S), Jonathon Taylor (RB), Jacob Eason (QB), Lloyd Cushenberry III (G), and Grant Delpit (S).
If the board fell this way, I believe Ryan Pace wouldn’t hesitate to grab LSU’s star safety Grant Delpit. Most are probably thinking he won’t make it that far. That is fair to assume, but we have seen more exciting things happen.

The Chicago Bears have acquired guys that have fallen in prior years that were expected to go much sooner. James Daniels was arguably a lock to be drafted before round one ended in 2019. League MVP Lamar Jackson was not supposed to be the 32nd overall pick. Just think, the leagues 2019 MVP almost fell to the second round. We are shocked every year about some players still being available. Why not Grant Delpit?
The Chicago Bears are armed with the 50th overall selection as well. Ryan Pace could trade down with this pick. In this mock draft scenario, the Bills offered their third-round (22), fourth round (22) fifth-round (21) and sixth-round (28) picks. The Buccaneers offered their third-round (12), fourth-round (11), fourth-round (33) and fifth-round (15) picks.
If I were Ryan Pace, I would consider this trade. This would mean that the Khalil mack trade would have only cost the bears a first-round selection in the 2020 NFL draft. To keep things clean, I will not be accepting any draft day trades in this mock draft.
All of the players that I listed previously that were available were drafted before the Bears 50th pick except for Kyle Dugger. Available options are Dugger, Chase Claypool (receiver), Isaiah Wilson (OT), Bradlee Anae (Edge), Cole Kmet (TE), Jake Fromm (QB), Tyler Biadasz (center), and Malik Harrison (ILB). With those options available, Ryan Pace could trade down a little bit while adding another day three pick pretty quickly. But in this mock draft, I selected…
