20. 2019 NFL Mock Draft

Now that we’ve examined running backs which are potential fits for the Bears, along with safeties, offensive lineman, tight ends, and edge rushers, odds are that we’ve got a pretty good idea of who the Bears will be targeting. With that said, it’s time for a mock draft.

Third-round, 87th overall: S Amani Hooker, Iowa

The Bears grab an underrated player who has the potential to develop into a star under the guidance of Chuck Pagano. Hooker might need some time, but if he’s developed the right way, he has the ability to become a star player who gets placed all over the field in the Bears defense. Running back is definitely going to be a more popular pick here, but if the Bears want to maximize the value of this pick, then safety is the way to go.

Fourth-round, 126th overall: RB Devin Singletary, Florida Atlantic University

A guy who has the potential to develop into the NFL’s next big electric playmaker, Singletary is going to pay dividends from day one. He’s powerful, plays with speed, and isn’t afraid to get physical with the ball in his hands. It’s fair to label him as a perfect fit for the Bears offense and he will thrive playing alongside Mike Davis and Tarik Cohen.

Fifth-round, 162nd overall: DE Jalen Jelks, Oregon

Jelks may not be the hottest name in the fifth round but he does add more competition to the Bears defensive line. He’s the type of guy who’ll be a solid contributor for the Bears over the next few years and be on a relatively cheap contract too. By drafting him, the Bears have a long-term depth piece behind Khalil Mack and Leonard Floyd.

Seventh-round, 222nd overall: K Matt Gay, Utah

The Bears get the best possible kicker in the 2019 NFL Draft. Some may not want to spend a pick on a kicker, however, Gay has the ability to be the next Robbie Gould for the Bears. Drafting him could make kicker one less need for the Bears for the next ten years.

Seventh-round, 238th overall: OG Alex Bars, Notre Dame

A guy worth taking a risk on, Bars could be a starter for the Bears down the road. By drafting him, the Bears will be in a win-win situation. Reuniting him with Harry Hiestand could lead to Bars fulfilling his potential. While the injury history is a concern, Bars could end up being a steal if he can stay healthy.
