If you’re looking for a mock that is trying to predict exactly what general manager Ryan Pace is going to do, or one that is plugging specific holes for the Bears, then this ain’t it. I use mock drafts to present different directions that the Bears could go, with my last one being a strict best player available mock, and this one going in a 100% offensive direction.
For this exercise I used the mock draft simulator at NFL Mock Draft Database, and the only rule I had was no defensive players allowed. I wasn’t necessarily avoiding double dipping at certain positions, but when I did it I made sure it made sense.
I also pulled off one trade in sending the 50th overall pick to the Eagles for 53 and 127. Philly took a player that I could see going to the Bears next week in Colorado wide out Laviska Shenault Jr., but I gambled that I would be able to address receiver further down the board.
Here’s my All Offense Bears Mock Draft:
43) Round 2 - Lloyd Cushenberry III, OL, LSU
Cushenberry has been a popular player getting mocked to the Bears this year as he not only provides good value in this spot, but he falls at a position of need. Whether he stays at center or slides over to guard, Cushenberry has the talent to be a ten year pro.
53) Round 2 - Lucas Niang, OT, TCU
It’s possible that teams drop Niang due to his hip surgery, but he’s a legit right tackle prospect at 6’6”, 315 pounds, with 34¼” arms. He has strong hands, and he’s a good finisher in the run game.
127) Round 4 - Devin Duvernay, WR, Texas
I had Duvernay in my last mock, and after watching some of his film I’m not sure how he’s not rated higher. He’s not even the top receiving prospect on his team, but he’s built like a running back (5’10”, 200), and his 4.39 forty speed pops on the field too.
164) Round 5 - Adam Trautman, TE, Dayton
Trautman showed he belonged at the Senior Bowl, but he’s still a developmental prospect making the jump from a small school that will take a while to get NFL ready. But a year behind the plethora of tight ends in Chicago would do his game well.
197) Round 6 - Joshua Kelley, RB, UCLA
He’s a tough “see hole-hit hole” runner, but he has enough speed to take advantage if there’s a bigger crease. He didn’t catch the ball much in college, but he showed he has that ability at the Senior Bowl and the NFL Combine.
201) Round 6 - Kevin Dotson, IOL, Louisiana-Lafayette
The Bears need depth along their offensive line and Dotson was a four year starter at guard and an AP first-team All-American. His technique needs some tightening up, but he’s a physical presence.
227) Round 7 - Gabriel Davis, WR, UCF
Davis (6’2”, 216) has good enough speed and ball tracking ability to be successful in jump ball situations. He shows the physicality needed to project to the special teams.
234) Round 7 - Bryce Perkins, QB, Virginia
I’ve always been a fan of scrambling quarterbacks, and Perkins has some fun film to watch, so why not take a flyer on him with the last pick. In two years starting for Virginia, he threw for 6,210 yards and ran for 1,692. He has the speed and athleticism to get on the field in some capacity while he learns how to play QB at the NFL level.
