Pick No. 50

Alright, here comes the offensive linemen. Again, remember I would take Cushenberry at No. 43 if he was the best player available at the time. Let us pretend that the team somehow landed either Kristian Fulton, Antoine Winfield, Jr., or Denzel Mims. If Pace landed one of these three, then the offensive line has to be the pick here at No. 50.

Well, honestly, the ideal situation would be that Pace lands one of the three players mentioned, trades back from pick No. 50, and is still able to pick Lloyd Cushenberry at No. 50. If Cushenberry is gone, other offensive linemen like Lucas Niang, Prince Tega Wanohgo or Josh Jones.

Even though I would not be too happy with one of the linemen at pick No. 43, I would take any of them at No. 50. The team needs two things on offense in my opinion — a game-changing talent and help to block upfront. This is why one of these picks must be an offensive lineman. I do not believe for a second that Ryan Pace is truly comfortable with the current talent he has on the offensive line. Adding another young, competitive player could sure up the line quickly.

dark. Next. Should Bears trade for this WR?

Between Denzel Mims and K.J. Hamler, both could be game-changers, but Mims would be the guy I would want. However, I could not pass up the talent still available at safety even though I really wanted a new weapon on offense. Therefore, my ideal situation would be Kristian Fulton at cornerback with pick No. 43 and Lloyd Cushenberry at the interior offensive line at pick No. 50. The good news is that there is plenty of talent left. Pace could even go quarterback if he wanted.
