Chicago Bears Mock: Two major trades lead to a guaranteed franchise QB
Chicago Bears: Round 6 (204) – TJ Slaton, DT
Tedarrell “TJ” Slaton has outstanding size at 6’4″ and 330 pounds, to go along with a quick first step. This showed on the field with 3.5 sacks in 2020. However, he is not as good as needs to be at the point of attack to start in the NFL. This is why he should last into the sixth round. If at some point the Bears lose Akiem Hicks, Slaton could give the Bears’ defensive line some depth.
Chicago Bears: Round 6 (208) – Tre Nixon, WR
Adding a wide receiver is a must after shipping Anthony Miller off to Atlanta. Tre Nixon is a good route runner with 4.36 speed. He can also make difficult catches. He had limited action in 2020 because of a shoulder injury so his medical reports will be critical. He can be a solid fourth receiver if healthy.
Chicago Bears: Round 6 (221) – Mark Webb, S
Look at that — another Georiga Bulldog for Ryan Pace. Mark Webb brings good size to the table at 6’1″ and 210 pounds. Webb has above-average coverage skills and has the versatility to play both safety and cornerback. He is a physical defender who is not a liability on running plays and can probably play on special teams.
Chicago Bears: Round 6 (228) – Nick Niemann, LB
Nick Niemann is a local boy from Sycamore, IL who played for the Iowa Hawkeyes. He has some speed to go along with his size at 6’3″ and 234 pounds. For his size, he can cover a lot of ground with his speed and quickness. However, he also needs to add more muscle. He is smart but needs some coaching on the subtitles of pass coverage. He should be a core special teams performer.
