2nd Round - Kris Jenkins, DL - Michigan
Some of you might be sticking around, but I might lose you here. I can't lie; I must do more digging between prospects 45 and 75. I know who they are, but the value is still being determined. I have Ryan Poles grabbing Kris Jenkins from Michigan. Poles loves athletic gods, and Jenkins continues that same trait. Jenkins would be a cross between the two tackles drafted in Gervon Dexter Sr and Zacch Pickens last season. Imagine a defensive tackle-sized man who can rush from the outside to defend the run and move inside to push the pocket.
Jenkins is more of a luxury pick, but you can never have enough defensive linemen. Demarcus Walker was supposed to be able to rush inside and outside, but he no longer has to do that with all of the defensive tackles on the roster. Justin Jones is nice, but Dexter Sr should eventually have his role and would need a rotational guy. The Bears don't believe Pickens is that player, so here is the guy to get the job done.
There were a few receivers on the board that the Bears could come away with. This draft pick could make or break this specific mock draft. Johnny Wilson is one of my favorite guys who could have gone in this spot, along with Xavier Legette, but I had another idea for a receiver in the future that might interest some later in this mock draft.
