Some of the mock drafts around this time of year get a little predictable when making their mock picks. Take the Chicago Bears for example, consensus says that the offensive line is a big need, so when the mock drafters get around to 20 they often just take the next best o-lineman on their board.
We’ve already shared several just like that, but the latest from the NFL Network’s Daniel Jeremiah has the Bears going in a different direction.
Kadarius Toney · WR
School: Florida | Year: Senior
The Bears are going to need more offensive playmakers whether pending free agent Allen Robinson is re-signed or not.
Even if A-Rob re-ups or is tagged, the Bears need more explosive playmakers on offense, and Toney is a guy that can make things happen with the ball in his hands. His best fit would be working from the slot, but teams should get him the ball in the jet sweep game too. His athleticism could stress a defense in a variety of ways.
Jeremiah’s board did still have Alabama quarterback Mac Jones available and a couple high rated offensive linemen too, so would you be good with this pick for the Bears if this was how the actual draft fell?
