The 2020 NFL Draft is nearly upon us. Thank goodness with basically no sports currently in play. We take a look into who analysts have the Chicago Bears drafting in a little less than two weeks.

This is a unique time we live in. The 2020 NFL offseason has continued to push forward despite many sports being unable to play previously scheduled games. The Chicago Bears have already addressed some of their needs in free agency by signing Jimmy Graham, Robert Quinn and trading for Nick Foles. Who will they be adding to the fold though after the NFL Draft takes place?

Everyone and their brother wants to predict how the 2020 NFL Draft will go down. Some people have created a career by doing this. The first to do so was Mel Kiper, Jr. His counterpart Todd McShay is another person who specifies in analyzing NFL drafts. These two might be some of the bigger names in the industry, but they are not the only ones and they are not the most accurate.

In fact, Kiper is just not as good as he used to be, or maybe it was because he was the only guy out there for the longest time. He is ranked 52nd on FantasyPros mock draft accuracy rankings. McShay is at least respectable at the 16th spot. Only one of the two will be looked at here today. Bet you can guess which one carries more weight at this point, ha.

We will take a look at six different national writer’s mock drafts. We will look for some commonalities and comment on if the selection is a good or bad one for our beloved Chicago Bears.
