From time to time we’ll take a peek around the inter-webs to see how the experts have mocked the 2019 draft for the Chicago Bears. With the Bears not picking until the third round, the pickings have been slim for us to find a mock that went deep enough to include Chicago. But earlier today, DraftTek revealed their latest mock and it went a full seven rounds.
Check out the selections they made for the Bears, then check out the way their board fell to let us know if you agree with their picks or not.
3rd Round: Daniel Wise, DL, Kansas
Defensive line isn’t much of a need in my opinion, but if the Bears have one rated high, I could see them sticking to a best player available philosophy. Wise played all along Kansas’ d-line, and that versatility could help him crack a rotation as a rookie. His play at the East-West Shrine game may have some scouts taking an extra look at his tape.
4th Round: Miles Sanders, RB, Penn State
I think running back is one of the positions they’ll definitely be looking to add, and they would be ecstatic if they could snag Sanders in the fourth round. He has the all around tools that would go nicely with the backs currently on the roster, so he’d fit into the committee approach that head coach Matt Nagy is looking to employ.
Considering I had Sanders mocked to the Bears in the third round of my mock, I’d be fine if the real draft fell this way.
5th Round: Mike Jackson, CB, Miami (FL)
Some believe the 6’1”, 201 pound Jackson would be a better fit at safety instead of corner. Either way, he’s a guy that would likely need to be coached up to hone his technique, but his athleticism and physicality would lend to a role on special teams as a rookie.
7th Round: Malik Gant, S, Marshall
Gant is another physical defensive back that could find a home in the third phase as a rookie.
7th Round: Cole Tracy, K, LSU
Kicker is a big time need for the Bears, but I have my doubts they’ll draft a guy. If they do, this second seventh rounder is where it’ll like come from. Tracy didn’t kickoff for LSU, but that doesn’t concern me. Get a guy that can bang field goals is the top priority and Tracy hit 29 of 33 (87.9%).
