An in-depth Chicago Bears Mock draft

The Chicago Bears have sure made a mess of things. Angering the fan base is never ideal. Something that could ease the free agency period’s pain would be killing it in the 2021 NFL draft.

While some fans would still be mad, young stars that could change things can always put a hint of faith in the back of someone’s mind. The Chicago Bears started this offseason by making some expected cuts and then made some questionable moves.

I have asked the Bear Goggles team if some of these moves were the plan all along and if the general manager and head coach are building a team based on future hirings to replace them. Speculation and questions always happen in the offseason and should be taken with a grain of salt.

Just like this Chicago Bears seven-round mock draft. The Chicago Bears are armed with eight draft selections this year as of writing this article. Kyle Fuller has been officially released. The Chicago Bears were seeking a trade partner but were unable to find one after a few days of negotiations.

During a normal year, I would have expected Kyle Fuller to return a second-round draft pick, but due to the nature of this offseason and his cost, only one team was interested in him and waited for his official release — the Denver Broncos. Within minutes, Fuller signed with Denver.

If you have seen my other Chicago Bear mock drafts in the past, you know I try to think mostly like Ryan Pace and add in my own flavor. Tracking is key.

The Chicago Bears have visited or met with players from the following schools:

  • San Diego State
  • Florida State
  • Toledo
  • TCU
  • Stanford
  • Clemson
  • North Dakota State
  • Illinois
  • North Western
  • Arkansas State
  • Arkansas
  • Oklahoma
  • Maryland
  • Alcorn State
  • SMU
  • Hawaii
  • Washington
  • Gambling State
  • Kansas
  • Kansas State
  • Aurora University

That is just the list that I have compiled. I am sure other schools and players from other schools have been talked to or seen. This mock draft will have trades, but I won’t discuss the moves that were made. Just the draft number that the players were picked at.

Normal years, I would not share the schools because there would be too many, but since this is a limited year, I expect there to be fewer prospects leaked since the prospects cannot come to Halas Hall. With all of that said, let’s get into it.
