If the Chicago Bears do not draft a tackle high, they are going to have to find some options later in the draft. The reality is that even if they draft a tackle high they should still be looking at day three guys to fill the depth. If they are looking deep in the draft for some real sleepers, who are the names to watch for?

3. Carter Warren from Pittsburgh is a sleeper for the Chicago Bears

Carter Warren is an interesting name to keep an eye on. He is a four-year starter for the Pitt Panthers and was starting on the blindside when Kenny Pickett rose to the first round and was invited to the Heisman ceremony.

However, four games into his 2022 season Warren suffered a season-ending injury. It has not been disclosed, but it is obviously serious because Warren did not work out at the NFL Combine or at his pro day. Of course, he was invited to the combine because teams are so interested in his medicals.

The issue is obviously his health, but 2022 was going to be big for him to improve his stock. Carter Warren has some technical issues to work out, and had a chance to do so, but lost it with his injury. So, this is a fifth-year player who will not be ready to start and is not even healthy as of now.

When he gets healthy, he may be able to compete with Braxton Jones but is likely viewed as a redshirt season. This will have him on day three. Still, the Chicago Bears need depth, and if he does arise healthily and improve in 2024, it could really help.
