Chicago Bears Round 2, Pick No. 59 via CLE

Looking at the board, I traded back praying either Landon Dickerson or Dillon Radunz would fall to me. Sadly, both got taken, but I still got a great offensive tackle in Jackson Carman out of Clemson. In this deep offensive tackle class, Carman gets relatively ignored, but that shouldn’t take away from his abilities.

Carman had the tall-task of protecting college football’s most important asset: Trevor Lawrence. He is best used in his run-blocking though where he is a mauler. He plays nasty when run-blocking and always attempts to finish his blocks by putting his defenders into the ground.

Carman is a decent athlete and has solid strength. He needs to improve in these areas if he wants to be a high-end tackle at the next level. Due to his issues in pass-blocking as well, he may move to offensive guard. Regardless, he could be a solid right tackle to replace Bobby Massie as well.

He isn’t a surefire fix though. If the Bears were to get him in the second, they would likely need to address right tackle in free agency as well and bring in competition for him or even draft another offensive tackle later in the draft.
