If the Bears want a truly mean, mauler on their offensive line, Creed Humphrey is their guy. When you watch Humphrey’s film, you really cannot find a flaw in his game. Some say outside of Sewell, Humphrey is the next best lineman in this draft class. Humphrey was essentially a guaranteed first-round pick last season before returning to the Sooners. He was first-team All-Big 12 last year.

As stated, Humphrey has essentially no flaws in his game. From his physical traits to his mental abilities, Humphrey is going to be a star at the next level. He plays a nasty style of football that reminds me of Quenton Nelson when he was coming out of college. He backs up his aggressiveness with his unbelievable power.

Humphrey would be a plug-and-start for the Chicago Bears next season. This would either shift Whitehair to guard or Humphrey would shift to guard. Regardless, this player would make the interior of the Bears’ offensive line one of the best in football with Daniels, Whitehair, and Humphrey.
