Chicago Bears Mock Draft, Pick No. 137: Carter Warren, OT (Pittsburgh)

With the Chicago Bears having a less-than-ideal offensive line, adding an athlete like Carter Warren from Pittsburgh is helpful in the Bears’ quest for a serviceable offensive line.

While nothing he does fits under the “elite” umbrella, he’d be an interesting prospect to have battle Larry Borom for a starting tackle spot.

Based on how Braxton Jones has played this year, it’s not absurd to think he could be the left tackle of the future— even if that just means for another year.

Free agency could bring in a tackle, however, the pickings are slim.

2023 Top free agent offensive tackles

  • Orlando Brown Jr., KC
  • Jack Conklin, CLE
  • George Fant, NYJ
  • Cameron Erving, CAR
  • Mike McGlinchey, SF

Of this group, there are a couple of tackles that would probably make sense, but as Ryan Poles has noted, he wants to build through the draft.

Whether that means he’s willing to punt on free agent tackles, we’ll see.

If he does punt on them, Carter Warren could make for a supplemental addition to the offensive line.
