With the NFL combine in the rearview mirror, most NFL fans will start to get ready for the 2022 NFL Draft. The combine is a great place to get a look at every prospect and how they compare to their peers, but also how they interview. Now that this is over, we will focus on another Chicago Bears mock draft.

Past mock drafts have predicted players such as Roquan Smith, Jaylon Johnson, Bilal Nichols, and more. With that in mind, this mock is looking to be predictive and mention players with legitimate chances of being drafted.

To find the players’ draft position I used PFF mock draft simulator, so if you have an issue with when they get selected, take it up with them. Besides, this exercise is more to discuss fit than anything else.

The Chicago Bears are likely to take a wide receiver with their first pick, and luckily for them this is a deep class that promises to have strong talent fall into the second round. Skyy Moore is a player that was not on many radars a few weeks ago, but now all the talk is that he will be selected in the first 60 picks.

With that in mind, he is the perfect fit for the Chicago Bears as well. Moore is mostly a slot wide out, but he often can go deep out of the slot as often as he hits the underneath. His 4.41 speed at the combine showed that he has the burners to beat NFL corners.

The Bears need a slot wide out, but we all know that Justin Fields is much more deadly on his deep balls than in timing routes. Moore is a prototypical slot, but the ability to extend the field is something most slots do not possess. This makes a great fit.

Moore compares very favorably to Christian Kirk, who is expected to get $12M per year on the open market. Moore is a cheaper, and younger version of Kirk and could be a better consolation prize than the big free agent.
