1. George Pickens 80% chance available for Chicago Bears

The projections seem to think that the Bears will take players such as Raimann, Gordon, and Elam more than Pickens. However, they see Pickens on the board as often or more than any of those players.

These projections have Pickens likely to fall to 48, and also to be a more likely pick for the Chicago Bears there. Still, that is hard to project mainly because of the run on wide receivers that is expected to come.

If the Chicago Bears want to take Pickens, it would be a gamble to see them take Elam and hope that Pickens falls.

Whether it be at 39 or 48, there are signs pointing to George Pickens with the Chicago Bears.
