2. Kyler Gordon 50% chance available for Chicago Bears

This is an interesting one because he is only available 50% of the time in mock drafts. However, ESPN has him going to the Chicago Bears more than most players. They seem to think that while he is unlikely to be here, if he is, he is too perfect to pass up.

That could be understood in some ways. Gordon does not quite have the length that you want, and there are questions if he is better in the slot or on the outside.

The nice thing with drafting Kyler Gordon would be that you want to move him around based on the matchup. When the team faces shifty slots, he can move outside, but his length will not hurt him against plenty of quick possession receivers on the outside, either.

Gordon also plays tenacious, and his run-stopping is what has scouts loving his makeup. Like ESPN, it is hard to see him being there, and understandable that their projections would tie him to Chicago any time he did fall.
