2. Kenyon Green, Texas A&M

Average Mock Draft Position: 24

NFL Comparison: Andre Gurode 

The Chicago Bears brought Kenyon Green to Halas Hall for pre-draft signaling that they may anticipate him being on the board at pick 39. In most mocks, he goes 24th overall, but a small drop could slide him into round two and into the Bears range.

We wrote about the possible reasons behind his slide in the draft, and one reason could be that he had a poor combine. Green is typically known for being light on his feet, but his testing showed a clunky mover. That could turn teams off.

Beyond that, he profiles as a guard, and while he played tackle at times, it is hard to see him living there in the NFL. A guard with a poor pre-draft cycle could slip to 39.

Still, if he does, it is an easy decision for the Chicago Bears. Green is the opposite of Raimann in that he is one of the younger players in this draft. However, to add to that, he is also as experienced as anyone, and has played at least one snap at all five spots.

Kenyon Green plays nasty, and the style that the Bears want. His age suggests upside, and his experience suggests a day one starter, The floor for him is pick 39. He may never be an All-Pro, but you should expect 10 years of top-10 production for his position.
