6th Round – 196th overall
Cam – Josh Metellus, S, Michigan
Metellus is a small tackling safety. Much like Antoine Winfield Jr, this kid locks on and clicks. His knocks are coverage and deep coverage. The Bears won’t need this kid to worry too much about the deep stuff. He needs to keep doing what he does in run support and leave the back end for Eddie Jackson.
Parker – Larrell Murchison, DL, NC State
Murchison is a bit of a tweener between edge rusher and interior defensive line. He could take run-stuffing downs to provide depth on the edge but has a profile that could step in for Roy Robertson-Harris down the line.
Rob – Alex Taylor, OT, S.C. State
With this pick, I would expect Ryan Pace to take one of the biggest offensive linemen sleepers in the 2020 NFL Draft. Alex Taylor stands 6-foot-9 and weighs in at 308 pounds. He is very raw and will be a developmental pick. He could be the guy who sits this year but then replaces Charles Leno in 2021. I know this goes against my all-in approach thus far in the draft, but Taylor has so much upside.
He was a basketball player who started playing football late. He is very long, athletic and has some mobility to him. He will need to put on some muscle in the NFL but has the frame to do it easily. He also needs to develop more of a mean streak and become more of a mauler. As I alluded to, though, Taylor could be a steal for Chicago here.
Ryan – Dalton Keene, TE, Virginia Tech
Keene is a great run blocker, which was sorely missed last season. His production was down last year in terms of receiving yards, but his versatility to be used at tight end and fullback will be invaluable to a Chicago Bears offense that badly needs blocking help. With the ball in his hands, Keene isn’t afraid to lower his shoulder to gain the tough yards either.
