Shocked that a safety was not drafted
Since none of the teams selected a safety in the first round, it leaves plenty of talented options on the table for Ryan Pace and the Chicago Bears. Xavier McKinney jumps out at me right away. he is the top-ranked safety on mine and many other’s rankings. McKinney lands in my fifth tier and is the 30th ranked prospect. If the Chicago Bears were able to draft him at pick No. 43 fans should be ecstatic.
Beyond McKinney, more talent is still out there at the safety position. The next guy I could see Ryan Pace drafting is Antoine Winfield, Jr. He is the second-best safety in the draft in my opinion and comes in at number 34 in my rankings. Both McKinney and Winfield fall under the same tier.
Going down the line to my next tier, we will find both Grant Delpit and Jeremy Chinn. Either one of these guys would be a great pick by Pace and his staff. I have been mocking Chinn to the Bears at pick No. 50 though and would prefer him there opposed to the 43rd pick.
After these top four safeties I also still have Kyle Dugger on my draft board. Dugger would be a second-round talent but is still worth a look if a run on safety happens prior to the Bears pick. Dugger could be the guy Pace lands after trading back from No. 50 and acquiring more picks like the Vikings did tonight. Dugger is the 61st draft prospect in my rankings.
Finally, the position most of you want to see taken tonight is offensive line.
