All Bears Seven Picks Mocked

The Bears are in a great position in this draft. They’ve filled a ton of needs in this off seasons free agency period, and now have a lot of flexibility which is always the goal going into a draft. I’m going to mock based on what I would do not what Phil Emery would do, or how I think the board will fall.

14.) Kyle Fuller -CB- Virginia Tech – At this point I think Aaron Donald is off the board making my pick of Fuller an easy one to make.

I see a number one Cornerback. He’s got the size the strength, the speed, the fluid hips, the hands, the intelligence, The explosive athleticism, and the confidence to take the opponents best WR, and shut him down. What I like most of all about him is his fierce attitude, and versatility. Can blitz and defend the run, and offers lots of scheme possibilities for a creative defensive mind.

51.) Deone Bucannon -SS- Washington State – It won’t take long for Bears fans to like the way this secondary is shaking out. Getting an aggressive physical CB in round one, and than Bucannon in the second will instill an attitude and toughness Chicago Bears fans have been craving for far too long. He’s a great athlete who has explosiveness to his game. His attacking downhill game is fun to watch. Very good tackler who also lowers the boom, and can blitz. Bucannon also has good balls skills and can create fumbles. He’s a turnover making machine.

82.) Kelcy Quarles -DT- South Carolina – Quarles is a kid who would have a good chance sneaking into the end of round one in a normal draft, but this one is far too deep.

It remains to be seen how much of his production came from attention paid to Jadaveon Clowney, and how much was pure ability on Quarles part. Great value here.

117.) Jared Abbrederis- -WR- Wisconsin – Abbrederis is the best route runner in the draft. Has soft reliable hands and a high football IQ. With a team filled with playmakers Abbrederis could be that possession guy Jay Cutler can rely on now that Earl Bennett is gone.

156.) Preston Brown -ILB- Louisville – Brown is another player that brings toughness, and physicality to a defense that looks to be bringing a real edge into games with them. He also reunites with former defensive line coach and recruiter Clint Hurtt.

183.) Marion Grice -RB- Arizona State – Grice is a Matt Forte clone. An all around back. Probably the best hands in the draft at the running back position. Patient runner who is a one cut and go guy like Forte, and a perfect fit for a stretch zone scheme like the Bears run.

191.) Colt Lyerla -TE- Oregon – Physically gifted player who is raw, and needs development, but plays with urgency.

Has off field issues, but should thrive in a stable locker-room like the one the Bears provide. played with Kyle Long who could be a mentor for him who struggled with some of the same issues Lyerla has off the field. H-back type who can fill that flex role well. Can also contribute in the running game and be lined up anywhere to throw blocks.

    Sorry, I don’t think you’re even CLOSE to what Emory will do.


      That’s a good thing. Because if that’s the result of Emery’s draft, he should resign his post and admit himself to the Alonzo Spellman wing of the Psych Ward.

      • Johnny Hatelak

        Just curious slick which picks are you most disturbed by and why? Also I would love some input as to where you’d go. Maybe I’ll like yours even better than mine.

    • Johnny Hatelak

      Jon I was trying to mock this based on what I would do. I think trying to guess how a draft will go is futile. No one can read anyone’s minds, nor could they guess how teams value prospects, trades, if unexpected players fall in your lap etc. To me mocks are more about determining value, making people are of prospects, get chatter going, & for the blogger get to write some scouting reports of your own.

    • Jake

      Jon if this mock played out I would be ecstatic iv been preaching Kelcey quarles since the projected Donald first round pick! I might replace fuller in the first with dennard or Gilbert if they were available but great mock IMO

  • Tom Ward

    OK that seems a bit harsh = my one thought though is on the SS, Sounds like a great player and would be are best S but don’t we need a FS more then a SS? And I still want to see a DT early – the better the line the better the rest look.

    • Johnny Hatelak

      I think SS is a bigger need. Conte still has a chance to be a pretty good one. So long as he’s not asked to do things he’s not that good at. But as far as staying back and playing center field driving down on the ball and picking passes off he’ll be fine I think. But right now Bears don’t have a starting safety. I like Mundy, but not as a starter. I also think bears need to tighten that run so an in the box guy would help there, and in the passing game as Bucannon is a great blitzer too. Another issue is I don’t see a special FS out there. I am not sold on Dix. He doesn’t jump off the tape to me and his athleticism is average, and his production is actually below averae for someone who’s supposed to be a coverage safety. Just my opinion. I would love a stud DT and hope Donald drops, but I am just going by value, and see Quarles as a steal at 82 overall. I think he’s a late first early second in a typical draft, but this one is insanely deep. Especially at DT.

      • Tom Ward

        I will also be very honest that I do not know the guys coming out – do not really watch a lot of collage football – that is why I just mentioned the positions I thought most needed.

  • Eddie Currie

    I actually like Fuller a lot, but I hope the Bears trade back if they plan to draft him.
    1. C.J. Mosely, Aaron Donald, Darqueze Dennard
    2. Deone Bucannon, Jimmie Ward, Terrence Brooks
    3. Bashaud Breeland, Pierre Desir, Phillip Gaines
    4. Brent Urban, Kelcy Quarles, Chris Smith
    5. Caraun Reid, George Uko, Max Bullough
    6. Dri Archer, Marion Grice, Isaiah Crowell
    6. Tre Boston, Ross Cockrell

    • Johnny Hatelak

      Yeah Fullers a stud. I think trading down to get him is a risk. He may not last till 14. If scouts and GM’s see what I see on tape, and look at his measureables, and scheme transcendence & positional versatility they’ll pick him within the first two CB’s taken. I love Mosely too. Would not mind him nor Dennard. I hope Donald makes it, but i don’t see him lasting.

  • Jeffrey Ebo

    Great Draft… I don’t see the bears drafting a wide receiver though. We are set at X, Y and third receiver (Marshall, Jeffrey and Wilson) we have chris williams from the CFL and Domenik Hixson both of which could battle out for the 4th position plus its such a deep draft that I am sure that a few able WRs would go undrafted. Add to the fact that we have solid needs at CB, FS, SS and DT, WR would seem like a luxury to the Bears. That said, Emery has a bit of method to his madness so there is no saying never

  • Charles Spencer King

    Johnny, it’s unlike any I’ve seen, yet that is not a bad thing as I prefer fresh to recycled. I’d like to see your all team mock for at least two rounds (share link) . Let me ask you this, because given the comments about round one you are predicting more players on the defensive side of the ball than other “experts” in picks 1 -13. Therefore, which of the offensive players will be there for us in your opinion? Lewan, one or more of the 4 QB’s, Ebron, or Evans? Secondly, how would you rate (in order for the Bears) Gilbert, DD, Fuller, Dix, Donald, and TJ. Thanks
