This time out we'll double dip and take a look at what CBSSports.com has to say about the Chicago Bears 19th pick in the NFL draft. They have two mock drafters making picks and even though both believe the Bears will go with a wide out, both believe it will be a different wide out. First up if the Mock by their NFLDraftScout.com analyst Dane Brugler.
And with the 19th pick in this CBSSports mock draft, the Chicago Bears select Kendall Wright, WR, Baylor...
Here's what he has to say about the 5'10" all time leading receiver in Baylor history;
The injuries all across the Bears' offense last season exposed a need for more playmakers, especially at the wide receiver position. And the best wideout to enter the NFL from this draft class might very well be Wright. He can make plays at all levels of the field and, while he lacks great size, he has the speed and natural burst to not only create separation, but also make plays with the ball in his hands. Wright might be the best vertical threat in this class and can also help on special teams.
With the way he has his mock falling Notre Dame WR Michael Floyd is still on the board, so the Bears would have their choice between the two. And speaking of Floyd... with the 19th pick in the CBSSports.com mock draft, according to Rob Rang, the Chicago Bears select, Michael Floyd, WR, Notre Dame. Here's what Rang had to say about the pick;
With Mike Tice and not Mike Martz heading the Chicago Bears' offense, expect a focus on adding receivers with size and the strength to contribute as downfield blockers. The 6-3, 224-pound Floyd is an ideal match and would be a significant upgrade over veteran Roy Williams at split end.
He had me at "upgrade over Roy". In his Mock he had Wright going at 13 to the Cardinals.
Take a look at both mock drafts and let us know how you feel about them.
