We’re less than two weeks away from the 2020 NFL Draft, and the NFL experts are starting to gather their final thoughts on the prospects and make their last best guesses on what each team will do, so we wanted to share this full seven round mock draft from The Athletic’s Dane Brugler to see how he has the Chicago Bears drafting.

Brugler went through all 255 picks and here’s how his mock fell for the Bears.

2 (43) OG/C Lloyd Cushenberry, LSU

I’m a fan of Cushenberry (6’3”, 312 lbs) and I think he has the skill-set to compete for a week one starting spot somewhere on the interior for the Bears. He’s started the last two years at center for the Tigers.

2 (50) EDGE Curtis Weaver, Boise State

I think Weaver is a good prospect, but I’m just not sure about the Bears taking him in this spot. The value seems higher with a few other prospects that are available in his mock like wide outs Jalen Reagor or KJ Hamler, or defensive backs Antoine Winfield Jr. or Damon Arnette.

5 (163) FS J.R. Reed, Georgia

Death, taxes, and Ryan Pace drafting a Georgia Bulldog. Pace has picked 4 of them in his 5 years on the job, and Reed would be a nice depth piece in CHicago’s secondary.

6 (196) RB Ke’Shawn Vaughn, Vanderbilt

He’s a one cut and go runner not known for his wiggle, but that type of player can find success due to his decisiveness. He’s a good receiver out of the backfield too.

6 (200) WR Quez Watkins, Southern Miss

The Bears need speed and Watkins is a 4.35 forty guy. He may need to be schemed open early in his career, but that’s something Matt Nagy can do.

7 (226) CB Parnell Motley, Oklahoma

Motley (6’, 190) wasn’t invited to the NFL Combine, but he routinely matched up with the oppositions top receiver and he more than held his own.

7 (233) OT Colton McKivitz, West Virginia

Experience at both sides gives McKivitz a chance at winning the swing tackle job as a rookie for the Bears.
