Chicago Bears: Round 4, Pick No. 127 via KC

Aaron Banks has become a personal favorite of mine in terms of middle-round NFL Draft prospects. It’s hard not to love any Notre Dame offensive lineman given their pedigree, but Banks is a great one to love.

Banks has the potential to be a great starting guard for many seasons. He has backed that up with his years of experience while at Notre Dame and what he has shown on the field. His ability and power in both the run game and pass game are extremely impressive. Banks has some solid athleticism as well and would improve the Bears’ run game immensely.

On top of his ability at guard, Banks showed last season he can play offensive tackle as well. When Eichenberg missed some time, Banks moved over to left tackle and anchored that position extremely well. He has the versatility to play both tackle and guard and could eventually develop into a great right tackle as well.

Banks would instantly be the starter for the Bears at right guard. The interior of the Bears’ offensive line would then consist of Cody Whitehair, James Daniels, and Banks with Alex Bars and Sam Mustipher backing them up. It would be ideal if Daniels could play center and Whitehair at left guard, but Whitehair at center and Daniels at guard would also be great.
