  • Bears Mock Draft

    I'm curious to know what everyone wants for the bears come draft day. Lets see what everyones ideal bears mock would be.

    1. Ryan Clady, OT. I think Clady will be available at #11 and if he is there I hope we would trade our 1st and late 3rd (SD) and if need be a late rounder for the Bills 1st. After Clady I feel the OT class drops off. Clady is a lot better than Williams, Otah, and Albert imo.

    2. Brohm, QB if he's available, if not Malcolm Kelly, WR. Brohm would be a perfect fit in our O. Kelly is still a very good WR and I love his attitude. He is outspoken and wants to win and has never been a me above the team guy. He has strength and can beat the jam which is the major disadvantage of his lack of speed.

    3. Matt Forte, RB. Big powerful back who the team is high on. Forte has great size and ran a good 40 even though he doesnt have homerun speed he can pull away from some safeties. Forte would be a good fit for our power running style and could give Benson the kick in the pants he needs or start if need be.

    14. Rashard Mendenhall
    TRADE UP: Gosder Cherilus
    3th Round: Would prolly be a late one, maybe Flacco or Woodson if they drop, maybe Caldwell or Kelly

      Depends on whos left.

      but
      14: IF Williams is gone, and Albert doesnt have the value of the 14th pick
      then Rashard Mendenhall should be the pick IMO. I am thinking he may be the best back from this class when alls said and done.
      TRADE UP with Seattle: Gosder Cherilous RT might cost alot but its worth it to get a good tackle.
      3rd: With alot of value gone, Kerry Brown OG- We need a WR but unforetunately none fall to us in the late third worth the spot so we continue our line upgrade.

        I'd prefer Jonathan Stewart over every RB in this class. He is huge and ripped and can catch the ball out of the backfield.

          When I watched him (in like 1 game to be honest) I wasnt impressed. But when I watched Mendenhall I was much more impressed by his ability to make something happen.

            I agree that Mendenhall is more explosive and has better long speed, but Mendenhall is not a power runner and doesn't move the pile. He shies away from contact which I dont like especially for a guy who's 225lbs. Stewart will be a better between the tackles runner imo.

              Although ud prefer him, i really doubt his is high on our Big Boards, mendenhall has the Illnois and Turner connection

                I hate connections like that. I couldnt care less where I guy is born, I want the best player. I think Stewart is better than Mendenhall.

                  Stewart has injury concerns, lacks a top gear, and Mendenhall can catch the ball as good if not better than Stewart... I don't think we want to invest even more money on a big runningback with injury issues who doesn't have breakaway speed...


                  Sig by me... Hold the applause.

                    I'm not saying I want either RB in round 1. I don't think it would be smart to draft a RB in round 1.

                      We can wait on a running back. Offensive tackle should be the top priority. Trading up for Clady is a good choice, or if Chris Williams is there at 14, he can work too.
                      For the second round, I would be okay with trading down. I think teams will be aggressive and trade up for Joe Flacco and Brian Brohm. As far as Malcolm Kelly goes, I'm more concerned about his knees, as well as his maturity, than his 40 time. While Earl Bennett may not be the best athlete, he's the smartest receiver in this draft.
                      Assuming the Bears traded one third round pick for Clady and received another third round pick for Bennett, the Bears can use a third round pick on a running back. Matt Forte or Tashard Choice would be good options.
                      For quarterback, even though his stock dropped, I like Andre Woodson's mental toughness and work ethic. If he's there, I would go for him in the late 3rd round.
                      In the 4th round, offensive guard would be a solid choice. If Kerry Brown is there, go for him. Everyone on this board likes him. Or go for Chad Rinehart, who should be a solid guard.
                      Safety is a good option for the 5th or 6th round. Quentin Demps may not be there, so a development prospect like Nemo Warrick or DJ Wolfe would work.
                      Defensive tackle can be addressed late in the draft. Someone like Carlton Powell or Nick Hayden would work.
                      For the last picks, you might as well take flyers on guys and hope they pan out. Prospects like Lance Leggett (WR), Jaymar Johnson (WR), Pedro Sosa (OG) or James Blair (OG)

                        Mendenhall is a better prospect than Stewart. If Shard had more game experience in college he would be easily a top 10 draft pick.

                        Anywho;

                        1st - OT (one of Albert, Williams, Otah)...If I had a choice I'd take Williams but it doesn't really matter to me

                        2nd - Brian Brohm

                        3rd - Chris Johnson (probably a pipe dream though)...Or if Kelly is still there I'd take him

                            That would be my ideal draft but I don't think he'll be there that's why I took him out of my sig.

                              true, it seems unlikely. in a way, i dont even want to go QB in the first 3 rounds if brohm isnt there in 2. i want nothing to do with ryan or henne and i think anyone interested in flacco is going to have to trade back into round 1.

                              it would be my opinion that in a situation where the QBs arent favorable, we just grab a late round guy to stick behind orton and gross and develop him a little. if those afore mentioned guys fail us, we're going to end up with a high pick next year anyway and we can use that to nab a college guy who hopefully steps up and stand out as a pro-prospect.

                              id rather go that route tahn rely on a guy we "settled" on in the 2nd this year and have to go from there.......
