Round 2, Pick 43

Are the Chicago Bears really going to go into the 2020 season with Rashaad Coward as their only viable option at right guard? I highly doubt it. Interior offensive line stands out as a major need for this team and should be considered a priority for one of their two second-round selections. In this mock draft scenario, Lloyd Cushenberry III is on the board when the Bears go on the clock at No. 43, making this a relatively easy decision.

Cushenberry primarily played center in college but at 6-foot-3, 312 pounds, he should easily be able to handle offensive guard duties at the next level if needed. He immediately stands out on tape as a fantastic mover in space. He is an extremely quick and athletic offensive lineman who gets off of the ball quickly and attacks the second level extremely well.

Cushenberry does possess elite functional strength, but he does hold his own well on the inside. He shows a bit of power at the point of attack and is able to dig in and anchor when needed. Cushenberry also has extremely long arms for an interior offensive lineman and shows impressive overall hand usage as a run blocker and pass protector.

An interior trio of Cody Whitehair, James Daniels and Cushenberry would be exciting for the Chicago Bears. All three players could play center or guard, it would just be up to coach Matt Nagy and company to put the right combination together.
