Last week’s mock draft from The Draft Wire’s Luke Easterling went a full three rounds, and since the Chicago Bears have no first round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, this was a great one to spotlight for you draftniks out there. Now obviously the draft order will still fluctuate a bit, so he based his order on how the standing were on December 18.
The Bears also don’t have a third rounder, but with two seconds the Bears have a shot at finding two difference makers.
By now you guys know the drill on these Mocking the Mocks; check out who the analyst mocked to the Bears and let us know if you like the pick, and also let us know if that’s the way you would have drafted had the real draft fell that way.
Here’s how Luke had it for the Bears with their first second rounder.
47. Chicago Bears (from OAK) | Shaun Wade | CB | Ohio State
Grabbing some help at corner makes sense when you consider that soon to be 31-year old Prince Amukamara is a potential salary cap casualty since he carries a cap hit of $10 million in 2020 but would only count $1 million in dead cap space if released.
Wade is listed at 6’1”, 194 pounds and has yet to declare for the draft as a redshirt sophomore, but most feel he will throw his name into the hat.
Matt Miller from the Bleacher Report has a first round grade on Wade, so this could be good value for the Bears in the second.
Easterling hs the Bears staying defense with their other pick.
49. Chicago Bears | Curtis Weaver | EDGE | Boise State
Getting some pass rush help is a must this offseason for Ryan Pace, and the 6’3”, 265 pound Weaver has 34 sacks in three years with the Broncos. With as good as he’s looked this year I could see him going earlier in the draft, but if he’s there for Chicago in round two he could be the pick.
How would you feel if these were the actual Bears’ selections?
Would you rather see the Bears go offense and if so, who?
