The Chicago Bears select 35th overall QB Bo Nix Oregon
The Bears elected to not take a QB with the first overall pick but seeing Bo Nix there with that extra pick they got from the Cardinals trade its going to be hard for them to pass up. Nix is in the Heisman race and could very easily win it.
It would be a shock to see Nix still on the board going into the second round but with how many different QB prospects there are going to be available from pick 20-50 it wouldn't be out of the realm of possibility that he could fall.
Nix this season showed great improvement in his pocket presence and processing speed, with a quick release. When running with the ball he shows good mobility and defenses will need to account for it.
Making the jump to the NFL he is going to need to work on being more consistent with his footwork and be less jittery under pressure. There are also concerns about how quickly he is going to learn to call plays in the huddles as this was something he never did in college.
The Chicago Bears select 67th overall Wideout Malachi Corley Western Kentucky
The Chicago Bears double dip in this amazing wideout class first with Marvin Harrison Jr and now with Malachi Corley. The Bears likely need a couple of wideouts with Darnell Mooney and Equanimeous St. Brown both in the final years of their deals.
With Tyler Scott showing struggles this season Corley would most likely be wideout 3 for the Bears behind Moore and Harrison Jr. Corley is the best run-after-catch wideout in the draft and has been compared to current Bears wideout D.J. Moore.
Corley will need to work on catching the deep pass and not allowing the ball to hit his chest, he also struggles to create natural separation and is more of the scheme-open type of player. Will be a natural slot player but not much more.
