Chicago Bears reach for quarterback in seven-round mock draft
By Joseph Herff
Round 6, Pick No. 215
The depth of the Chicago Bears’ defensive line has been tested greatly this season. The Bears lost Eddie Goldman to opt-out due to Covid early before the season. They additionally lost Roy Robertson-Harris to a season-ending injury. Star defensive linemen Akiem Hicks has additionally missed time to injury as well.
Naquan Jones is a big and powerful defensive lineman that has flashed a lot of ability in his career at Michigan State. He has the ideal size and length you would want in an interior offensive lineman standing at 6′ 4″ and weighing over 320 pounds.
But even with all that size and athletic ability, Jones failed to cement himself a regular role in his career at Michigan State. He finally has a regular role this season and through six games he has five tackles for a loss on a team that is struggling. He does a great job of plugging up running lanes which the Bears need greatly as they’ve been gashed this season.
Jones would be a very nice prospect to have sit behind a combination of Hicks, Goldman, and Nichols. He could learn behind three great defensive linemen and become a great player from their knowledge.
