Chicago Bears 7-Round Mock Draft: Two splash trades fill big needs
By Ryan Heckman
The Chicago Bears hope to hit big with another offensive tackle
This is where Pace gives his best shot at finding a small school prospect, and whether or not it works out is about a 50-50 shot as we’ve seen in his past picks. But, Pace has been very good drafting in these middle rounds as evidenced by past picks such as Eddie Jackson and Tarik Cohen, and even as recent as Darnell Mooney.
The Bears go offensive tackle once again here. With skipping out on the big guys over their first three picks, Chicago assures they have more competition with the Radunz pick and now Spencer Brown out of Northern Iowa.
Like Radunz, Brown is looked at as one of the better small-school linemen. He possesses that nasty demeanor like Radunz, too. One thing you know you’ll see from Brown is 100 percent effort on every snap. He’s out to hit hard from beginning to end on every play.
According to The Draft Network, Brown projects as an eventual starting tackle in the NFL. The one thing he can work a bit more on is his lateral mobility, but the strength and physicality are there. He and Radunz would bring a fresh attitude to this group upfront.
