We take a look at a very early Chicago Bears 2021 mock draft
The 2020 NFL season is nearly upon us, or is it? Will the NFL season start on time and as close to as normal during a pandemic? It probably will, but who knows if it will last all year. With how crazy the year 2020 has become, let us bypass it for a minute and fast forward to 2021 instead. DraftWire recently put together a three-round mock draft and there are some interesting prospects the Chicago Bears end up with.
Since the 2020 season has not even started yet, the mock draft order was determined based on some recent Las Vegas odds. This had the Chicago Bears picking 12th overall. Before we get into how the first three rounds went down for the Bears, let us take a look at some of the picks before whoever Ryan Pace or maybe a different general manager (doubtful) takes at 12th overall.
The Washington Football Team will find a new face for its franchise possibly before a new name and logo. Trevor Lawrence finds himself going first overall and that is not shocking at all. Personally, I think he’s a much better prospect than Joe Burrow. Back-to-back quarterbacks go off the board as Justin Fields is selected by the Jaguars with the second-overall pick.
Two quarterbacks going off the board with the first and second picks are not likely, but neither drop far enough for the Bears to move up and take one if the team is truly picking 12th overall. To round out the rest of the top-five picks, Ja’Marr Chase, WR goes third overall to the Giants, Penei Sewell, OT is selected next by the Dolphins and Micah Parsons, LB winds up in Cincinnati.
An EDGE rusher, two cornerbacks, a wide receiver, a defensive lineman and a linebacker come off the board next to wrap up the rest of the picks before the Chicago Bears selection in the first round.
