There are a few seven round mocks floating around out there, and one of them was published yesterday. Chad Reuter of NFL.com mocked out all seven rounds, and even though it got some discussion going around the WCG comment threads, I thought it would be good to spotlight the mock. Here's the link to his mock draft, and after the jump we'll look at his seven picks for the Bears.

19. Chicago Bears: Chandler Jones, DE, Syracuse. Jones playing across from Julius Peppers improves the team's pass rush, and his growing frame is not easy to move in the run game.

I can see this pick at #19 for the Bears, but with a few other DEs available they would have options.

50. Bears: Zach Brown, OLB, North Carolina. Brown's athleticism makes him a great fit at Sam linebacker in the Bears' scheme.

Clemson TE Dwayne Allen would also be a solid pick up at this spot, but I do like Brown as he has the one thing a Tampa 2 OLB needs, and that is speed.

79. Bears: Jamell Fleming, CB, Oklahoma. Talented zone corner should fit the Bears' scheme well.

Flemming is a player we haven't talked about much, but the 5'11" 206 pounder has good instincts when breaking on the ball and is a physical player. He's the kind of corner the Bears would consider.

111. Bears: Nick Toon, WR, Wisconsin. Consistency and durability concerns could drop him on some boards, but Toon has a chance to be a starter.

I'd be perfectly content if Toon was the pick in the 4th. From a technical standpoint, he's a pro ready player. He just needs to work on attacking the ball.

Reuter didn't go into detail for the 5th, 6th, and 7th round picks, but here's who he mocked to the Bears;

5 (150) Matt Reynolds, OT/OG, BYU
6 (184) Charles Mitchell, SS, Mississippi State
7 (220) Derek Dennis, OG, Temple

Reynolds doesn't seem like a left tackle prospect, but he could kick inside to guard or play right tackle. Scouts like his initial quickness, his toughness, and his experience.

Mitchell has a 7th round grade by some, but he would be a developmental special teamer at this point in the draft. Vanderbilt DE Tim Fugger, whom the Bears worked out, is available in this mock.

Dennis has played all across the line at Temple, but with his mock addressing guard earlier I'm not sure if a 7th round o-line project is the best way to go.

What do you think of his mock? Check it out and discuss...
