5th Round – 163rd overall
Cam – Jonah Jackson, IOL, Ohio State
My Adrian Amos steal. Give me a guard who fell to me in the 5th round. Give me the versatile guard that is an outstanding pass blocker, and I’ll work on his run blocking as he gets more experience in the NFL. I’d much rather have a player that I know is good at one thing than have a player who is ok at everything. With Jackson, he comes with a high level of pass blocking talent. With Ruiz, he comes with ok pass blocking and ok run blocking. Jackson is ready to go as a pass blocker.
Parker – J.R. Reed, S, Georgia
The Chicago Bears complete their secondary with a box safety. Reed is not dynamic in coverage, but he is smart, instinctive and tackles well. A perfect pair with Eddie Jackson.
Rob – Thaddeus Moss, TE, LSU
Well, I did not think I would do this when I took on the challenge of running through this mock draft, but here I am selecting a tight end. With the 163rd overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, I am taking Thaddeus Moss. Moss is the son of the great Randy Moss. He has his dad’s big hands and would be a better draft prospect if he had speed and explosiveness to pair with it.
He is also a solid in-line blocker. With how often Trey Burton is off the field, I envision Moss taking over as the second tight end option in 2020 behind Jimmy Graham. This offense needs playmakers, and I would take a chance on Moss here.
Ryan – Dane Jackson, CB, Pittsburgh
The Bears will have an open competition at CB2, which means they don’t have an overwhelmingly good option there. Jackson has the aggressiveness and playmaking ability that Chuck Pagano will love, opposite Kyle Fuller. In four seasons on campus, he recorded 149 total tackles, including 9.0 tackles for loss, four intersections, and 39 pass breakups.
