WCG Mock Draft- Chicago (#31)

#31 - Chicago - Levi Brown OT Penn St.

Let me first start by saying that I firmly believe that the Bears will be trading this pick.  Either coupled with Lance Briggs to get a higher pick or for something else to drop lower.  Having the 37th pick as well really allows JA a lot of flexibility.  I wouldn't mind seeing if we could pry D-Jax from Seattle, as they have no first round pick.  Just a thought.

Having said that, I was looking at the available players left for this pick.  Should we go need or best available?  The answer seems obvious.  In this draft, one top player has slid al the way down the draft and that guy is Levi Brown.  Many people have him listed as the #2 OT in this year's draft and I'm quite certain he'll be a mid-first rounder at worst.  But since he's here, he'll drop no further.  The Bears have a very good offensive line, but Tait and Miller are no spring chickens. (side note:  It makes me sick that they are both under 34 years of age and are considered old.  FWIW)   Sure we have needs other than this but this guy is too good to pass up.  I considered Ben Grubbs, but I think Brown is rated much higher.  I also considered defense as well.  I looked over WCG's pick of Lawrence Timmons.  He might be pretty good, but again, doesn't project as high as Brown.  And lastly, I was thinking safety, but there was a run on them in the first round (4 already off the board) and I would never take the 5th of anything in the first round.  Hell, I don't like the 4th guy at one position in the first round.

So, with the 31st pick in this year's draft, the Chicago Bears select:

Levi Brown OT Penn St.
