Chicago Bears Mock Draft: Round 2, Pick 37 – O’Cyrus Torrence, IOL, Florida

With the second-round pick from Seattle, the Chicago Bears address the offensive line — one of the biggest areas of need for the Bears.

Justin Fields is going into his third season with the Bears, and for his first two seasons, he’s been sacked on 13.4% of dropbacks. That’s a total of 91 sacks in only two seasons.

So, while it’s more fun to draft guys like wide receivers or pass rushers, the Chicago Bears offensive line needs attention, and it needs attention now.

O’Cyrus Torrence from Florida adds some much-needed nastiness for the Bears’ offensive line.

Standing 6-foot-5 and weighing in at 346 pounds, O’Cyrus Torrence is a behemoth.

It’d be most likely that Torrence would play the opposite guard position from Teven Jenkins— granted Jenkins returns with slim-to-no limitations next season.

Torrence was with Louisiana-Lafayette from 2019-2021, but in 2022, he transferred to Florida, where he played in 11 games.

Throughout O’Cyrus Torrence’s 3,065 snaps in college football, he didn’t allow a single sack.

He might not be the perfect prospect, but what he is, is an athletically gifted beast with a football brain. He’s 50 pounds under 400 pounds, and yet, he looks as light as a feather on his feet.

Torrence is also very cognitive, which is an important and overlooked aspect of a lineman’s game.

Being a former offensive lineman, this guy likely checks the boxes for Ryan Poles.
