As is the case every year, the draft priorities for the Chicago Bears continue to shift from week to week. It’s impossible to predict which way they will go.
What is clear above anything else is they do have certain areas of the roster that need help. That’s true for both the offense and defense. It’s a matter of how things will be stacked up for them when they go on the clock. Here is their latest mock draft, complete with how it could go depending on the latest information. 1st Round (via TEN from LA)
Most of the talk surrounding the draft for the Chicago Bears will of course center around the big question. What will they do at quarterback? Odds are the one they might like in the 1st round won’t be there, so instead GM Ryan Pace decides to trade down, collecting extra picks. At that point he must assess where his team needs the most help. There can be no doubt that injuries and lack of depth have probably hurt them the most at the cornerback spot.
Kyle Fuller may be done there. Tracy Porter is aging and can’t stay healthy, nor can Bryce Callahan. This team needs stability at that crucial spot. Teez Tabor is right up their alley. The Florida standout has all the tools. He’s tall, rangy and athletic. He plays with a high degree of swagger, is fluid in his movement and knows how to get his hands on the football. One of those man cover corners who can trail the best receiver on every team they face.
