Outside Pass Rushers

Outside of running back, cornerback or safety, some talent still exists on the board. Looking at the OLB position first, there are a few names that stand out. Jachai Polite is a guy I seem to be higher on than most. He was a First Round talent who destroyed his draft stock at the combine. Polite could prove to be worth the risk though as the guy to take over for Aaron Lynch in 2020.

Chase Winovich is the safer option and probably will not be available. He too could be a guy worth moving up for. Winovich is a high-motor guy who just never stops going after the football. He has great technique with his hands and dips. He is a character though, and not sure he will fit in with Club Dub.

Oshane Ximines kept popping up when looking at OLB prospects. I thought he could be had later, but edge rushers have been flying off the board already. Ximines is quick and uses his speed to shoot gaps. He will not become the main focal point of a defense, but he is definitely able to take advantage of being across from a guy like Khalil Mack.

If the Bears are successful at nabbing a running back and defensive back with their first two picks of the 2019 NFL Draft, then they could look at guys like Maxx Crosby or Jalen Jelks who should be available in Round 5. Crosby is a bit of a project, but he could fit well in the Bears defense. Jelks lacks speed off the edge but never stops rushing the passer. He has great instincts to knock down passes when he falls short of hitting the quarterback.
