Chicago Bears: Trading back leads to plenty of picks in 2021 Mock Draft
By Joseph Herff
Chicago Bears: Round 5 Ι Pick No. 151
Keith Taylor can excel as both a slot corner or an outside corner. His versatility makes him valuable and he is solid in both man and zone coverage. He can play many positions, but he isn’t a star at any of them, which is his main knock. He does add depth to the Bears at cornerback and can compete for the starting nickel cornerback job that should be open once Buster Skrine gets released.
Chicago Bears: Round 6 Ι Pick No. 182
With the Bears likely cutting Jimmy Graham to save cap space, they can draft their ‘U’ tight end of the future in Quintin Morris. As Cole Kmet will be the ‘Y’, Morris can be the mismatch slot tight end. He is a physical beast that produced like it. Although it was the MAC, he still looked extremely impressive and is hard to cover.
Chicago Bears: Round 7 Ι Pick No. 198
Complete honesty: this is a biased pick. Christian Uphoff is from my current school and I worked personally with the defensive backs as a student assistant coach at Illinois State, so I saw him often. However, the Bears do need a box safety and Uphoff can do just that as he’s a hard-hitting, big safety that can fly around the field. He improved his draft stock at the Senior Bowl as he looked great.
I would’ve liked to grab one more wide receiver to replace Anthony Miller, but all in all, this was an absolutely crazy good mock draft. If you would like to read any of my other mock drafts, look at the other ones below.
