Chicago Bears Media Consensus Mock Draft 1.0
Grinding the Mocks has done a great job of combining a database of mock drafts from a variety of public outlets. The combined mock drafts show us the players that are being mocked most to the Chicago Bears in the NFL draft cycle. With four more weeks until the NFL draft, we are going to check back every week and see who are the players being mocked to Chicago the most.
So, this has nothing to do with my preference and is entirely based on who media, expert, and draftniks have been connecting to the Chicago Bears so far.
1 Rashod Bateman, WR, Minnesota
This database has collected 193 mock drafts, since February and in 69 of them, they have seen Rashod Bateman get drafted by the Chicago Bears. The wide receiver profiles as a potential long-term replacement for Allen Robinson. The two win in similar manners with precise route running, and a flexible catch radius.
Other players who have been mocked to Chicago include Mac Jones, Teven Jenkins, Alijah Vera-Tucker.
2. Kyle Trask, QB, Florida
Since February there have been 63 mocks that include two rounds, and 15 of them have the Chicago Bears selecting Kyle Trask out of Florida. Considering the Bears added a wide receiver with their first pick in this mock, Trask is a nice fit in round two.
He is much more of a game manager, and may just extend the Bears QB purgatory, but at the value, it is hard to hate the team waiting until round two, and taking a swing on a QB who fell. We also had Kyle Trask mocked to Chicago in round two in the most recent mock draft.
Other players that have been mocked to Chicago in the spot include Elijah Moore, Kadarius Toney
3. Jackson Carman, OL, Clemson
Of 35 mock drafts completed, Jackson Carman got drafted by the Chicago Bears in 10 of them. This would be a nice fit to add with the QB and WR in the next two rounds. Some see him as a swing tackle who could slide into guard if needed, but in round three, no one is a guaranteed starter. He has held down left tackle at Clemson for over two seasons.
Other players that have been mocked to Chicago include Tylan Wallace and Jamie Newman
5. Kenny Yeboah, TE, Ole Miss
There have only been eight mocks going through round five, and Yeboah has gone in five of them. The Chicago Bears could look to Yeboah as their TE3 next season, and if they move on from Jimmy Graham after 2021, they could insert him into their second tight end role.
Other players mocked to Chicago include Jack Curhan, Tommy Kraemer
6 Adrian Ealy, RT, Oklahoma
Early is a project, but has the size and potential to turn into a starting right tackle. We have him profiled, and would not hate taking a shot on the talent in round six.
6 Tony Fields, LB, West Virginia
Fields is an undersized linebacker, but the Bears have a stack backer in Danny Trevathan. They need a better mover, and Fields brings that.
6 Demetric Felton, RB, UCLA
Felton is a running back who could be looked at as a wide receiver. He is versatile and can be used in motion, which means you know he is a Matt Nagy-type player.
7 Jacoby Stevens, S, LSU
Stevens Is a box safety. He would like to struggle to beat Deon Bush out of camp but would bring special teams to value, and could step up and make DeAndre Houston-Carson expendable.
