A few weeks back we asked you guys to give us the one draft prospect or position you wanted the Chicago Bears to stay away from in the 2020 NFL Draft. Some of you guys said no to drafting interior offensive linemen in the second round, no players from small schools, no to quarterbacks Jake Fromm, Jalen Hurts, and Jacob Eason, and no to tight end Cole Kmet. Generally the responses were all over the board, so it seems like there would be some cross over with today’s topic.
Who’s the one guy you really want to see the Bears draft this year?
And let’s be realistic on this one. Ryan Pace may like to trade up, but he’s not trading up to the early parts of the first round this year. Not with his earliest pick being 43rd overall. So no telling us the guy you really want the Bears to draft is Chase Young, or Mekhi Becton, or A.J. Epenesa, or guys that are expected to fall off the board on day one.
My guy is probably falling past the Bears in the second-round, but won’t be around when they get back going on day three in the fifth-round, but if there’s a chance the Bears trade back at either 43 or 50 and pick up a third or a fourth-rounder, then I would love to see them grab Texas wide receiver Devin Duvernay, who is Jacob Infante’s 104th ranked draft prospect.
The more I watch his tape, the more I see a speedster that could give the Bears an added dimension to their passing game. He’s built like a running back and more than half of his 1,386 receiving yards came after the catch according to Burnt Orange Nation, the SB Nation site that covers the Texas Longhorns. Plus, if the Bears do snag Duvernay after a trade back, that means they would have likely addressed offensive live and/or the secondary with their earlier picks.
It was my all offense theme mock, but I tabbed Duvernay with the 127th overall pick after getting offensive linemen Lloyd Cushenberry and Lucas Niang earlier, and that’s a haul I could get behind.
So now it’s your turn.
Stick your flag in the ground and tell us the one guy you’d love to see the Bears select in the 2020 NFL Draft.
