3. Kaiir Elam 80% chance available for Chicago Bears

An interesting development is the mock draft projections showing Kaiir Elam available in 80% of their mock drafts. This would become an interesting debate for the team, and that is probably why he is the third most mocked player to the team.

There may be a bigger question about whether he is available but it is fair to assume that if he is available 80%, then the team would be drafting him a pretty high percentage of those times.

Elam could be compared to Jaylon Johnson in plenty of ways. They are both young, long, and fast. For Elam, he is a three-year starter at cornerback in the SEC and still is not even 21 years old.

There are some questions about his physicality, but if you watch the way he played against Jameson Williams, he does rise up to bigger occasions. Elam is a player that has started so much it seems like people have poked apart his game to death when he is a solid prospect.

While a lot of fans want the team to go offense, it would probably be hard for a lot of fans to genuinely be made Kaiir Elam in this spot.
