Maclin's Out, Who Now?

An early look at the mock drafts had the Bears selecting Jeremy Maclin.  Maclin hasn't done anything, but his name is making a Herculian rise up the boards.  Kiper has him currently going at #7.  So now that a majority of mocks have moved him up, who is the current favorites for the Bears pick?

NFL New Draft

18. Chicago Bears: Darius Heyward-Bey, WR, MD

The Bears defense is getting older but I think they go after a playmaking receiver to help their QB in the 2009 season. Bey is supposed to run in the 4.3’s in the 2009 NFL Draft Combine. He is ranked as my 3rd best WR in this 2009 NFL Mock Draft because of his size and speed.

Consensus Draft Service

PICK #18 The Bears Pick: Darrius Heyward-Bey (WR, Maryland) When a converted cornerback is your #1 receiver you know you have problems. After the emergence of Kyle Orton as a solid QB the Bears know they need to get him a real weapon if this team is to return to the Super Bowl. Enter DHB who has the skill set to become a very good NFL receiver.

18. Chicago Bears: Vontae Davis, CB, Illinois

Football Jabber

18. Hakeem Nicks, WR, North Carolina

Through my mock drafting, Heyward-Bey and  Vontae Davis were the most commonly players selected players for the Bears.
