Pick No. 43

There are four positions that I see with plenty of talent left on the board. Out of those four, I find that the Chicago Bears will likely pick one. I do not see them reaching for another position. I could be wrong, but I do not see it.

Originally my ideal situation was Jalen Reagor, wide receiver out of TCU at this pick. That said, Reagor went 21st overall to the Philadelphia Eagles. Reagor will fit in nicely there but would have been the game-changing weapon this Chicago Bears offense desperately needs. After Reagor came off the board, a run of wide receivers quickly followed. This looks to put wide receiver out of reach at pick No. 43.

Right now, there are 10 picks before Ryan Pace gets to make or trade his first pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. I am only a fan of four of them and I would probably only consider two at No. 43 over other potential positions. Denzel Mims and Laviska Shenault would be the two I would consider. That said, other players are still available that I have graded out higher.

The ideal situation would be to land one of Kristian Fulton, cornerback out of LSU, or one of the wide receivers I previously mentioned. This would only change if the offensive linemen started to fly off the board. I say this because one of these two picks should be in regards to the offensive line. The one name I would take this early is Lloyd Cushenberry. The other players I would try to wait until the 50th overall pick.

The backup options here would be Grant Delpit, Antoine Winfield Jr. or Xavier McKinney. I am actually shocked McKinney is still available as he is my top safety in the draft.
