Last Saturday we held a mock draft where you guys got to vote on each pick that was made for the Chicago Bears, and I thought you guys did a fine job. You addressed some needs, you got decent value, and you grabbed some high upside prospects on day three.
I was surprised the trade back option never won in any round of voting this year, but I guess after last year’s ‘trade back and take Georgia’s Isaiah Wilson plan’ backfired, you guys decided to play it safe and get the guy in front of you.
Since so many people love playing around with the mock draft simulations, we wanted to give you guys a chance to show your mock GM skills by holding a contest. Last year we did this for the first time and WCG Member Tony Cliffton was voted the winner. You can peep out his mock, and the mocks from all the other finalists, right here.
This contest is simple, just do your own mock draft at Pro Football Network, share it below in the comment section, and then your fellow WCG members will vote on who did it best.
But there are some rules...
- You can ONLY mock as the Bears. So no selecting every team to ensure you get an unrealistic haul for Chicago.
- You can ONLY submit one mock draft for the contest.
- Trading up or down is permitted, but be sure to document each move you make.
- There will be two rounds of voting.
1st round) Rec your favorite mocks down there in the comment section.
2nd round) The top 5 recommended mocks (maybe more, it depends on my mood) will get an actual poll treatment tomorrow in a separate article here at WCG.
Why do two rounds you may ask... That’s because some overzealous members will go rec-crazy at the first things they see which could skew the results to some mocks that aren’t up as quick.
- Each comment must have the same format (so it’s easy for me to copy and paste), and if you don’t follow the format you may be disqualified.
Here is the format to use.
First put your username in bold.
Then list your draft like this: Pick. Name, position, college (It’s a simple copy/paste from Pro Football Network, so it shouldn’t be that difficult.)
If you traded for future picks, list those future picks after your list of drafted players.
Then list the trade details after your list of picks so we know exactly what you did. You can click on the “trade” icon in your Pro Football Network mock to see the details of each trade.
Your comment should look something like this.
Lester A. Wiltfong Jr.
30. Teven Jenkins, OT, Oklahoma State
52. Kadarius Toney, WR, Florida
60. Kellen Mond, QB, Texas A&M
83. Amon-Ra St. Brown, WR, USC
93. Tyson Campbell, CB, Georgia
204. Richard LeCounte, S, Georgia
208. William Bradley-King, EDGE, Baylor
221. Shemar Jean-Charles, CB, Appalachian State
Traded Pick 28 and Pick 164 to Buffalo for Pick 30 and Pick 93.
Traded Pick 20 and Pick 228 to N.O. for Pick 28 and Pick 60.

This comment section will close when I decide to make the article featuring our finalists.
I forgot to mention what the winner will receive. The leading vote getter be able to carry the title of WCG Mock Draft Champ for a full year, he/she will have their user name in the headline once the overall champ is crowned, and I have a few official FOCO Chicago Bears face coverings that I can send out to the winner. Good luck everyone!
