Chicago Bears select Trevon Moehrig Ι S Ι TCU

The next pick for the Chicago Bears is where I will lose you. I expected Dillion Radunz to be still available when the selection came up. However, he went just before I could grab him. I know, this pick wasn’t a tackle, and you are furious. I feel that by the time the draft starts, Chicago Bears fans won’t even be thinking about a tackle because the Bears would have already signed someone promising.

That does not mean that I am not looking for a tackle. And there are some still available that I would be grateful to see in a Chicago Bears uniform. With that side, I grabbed another player that fell because of how the draft played out.

My next Chicago Bears mock draft will have trades, so don’t worry. Moving around the board will be essential for maximum value. The 52nd-overall pick went to Trevon Moehrig. I was very tempted to grab any of the six wide receivers left on the board like Chartarius Atwell, Amon St Brown, or Tylan Wallace.

Still, there is only one other safety I see that is exceptionally talented this draft besides Moehrig. That player is Ar’Darius Washington, also from TCU. Without being able to trade, there was no way I was going to get him without reaching. Moehrig is the clear number one safety prospect and should have been drafted already.

Moehrig is an Eddie Jackson free safety that can cover the back half of the field. Moehrig and Jackson’s difference is that Moehrig puts in the effort to stop the run, but at times is so uncontrolled when attacking downhill that he misses. So why Moehrig? The Chicago Bears’ new defensive coordinator.

Many feel that Sean Desai will run a heavy Vic Fangio scheme because he was around to see that scheme work the best. Well, I thought Chuck Pagano would run Pagano’s blitz-happy scheme that he was known for using. That didn’t happen.

I feel Sean Desai will likely run a defense that best fits his vision and forces turnovers; what better way to force turnovers than by getting away from the standard cover three and cover one looks. If the team uses more plays, that will cause the quarterbacks to throw the ball towards the safeties in cover two that would benefit Moehrig.
