Chicago Bears Big Board No. 6: Daniel Faalele, Tackle, Minnesota

Projected: Second Round

Target for the Bears at Pick(s): 39 and 48

Daniel Faalele is a freak of nature, standing at 6’8″ and roughly 380 pounds. Faalele is an absolute beast of a man. For his size, he has no business being anywhere close to as technical of a pass protector as he is. Faalele has solid hands which in addition to his size is a scary combo.

Faalele demonstrates very good balance, especially at his size. He is also very quick for his size. Faalele should be a very good tackle with a very high ceiling for a team that drafts him and can use his frame to his best ability. He is a good pass protector, and a good run blocker. This guy is a no-brainer pick for a team looking for a possible cornerstone of a franchise.

Chicago Bears Big Board No. 7: Alec Pierce, Wide Receiver, Cincinnati

Projected: Second Round

Target for the Bears at Pick(s): 39 and 48

Alec Pierce is someone who stood out to me on tape. Like Watson, Pierce is a very very good athlete who stands at 6’3″ with a legit 4.4 40-speed. In addition to this size and speed, Pierce is a very good contested catch receiver as he will always fight for the ball like a savage.

Pierce is very solid after the catch too as he is always looking for extra yards with his good ball carrier vision. Pierce is also a very smart route runner because with his frame he should not be able to find as much separation as he does. Pierce is very good at on-the-fly adjustments, whether it’s off-the-line or in the middle of a route. He is just a very smart football player and when you combine that with his athleticism there is a lot to be excited about with this young player.
