Round 7, Pick 226

player. 57. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. QB. Tyler Huntley. Utah. 7

If he lasts this long, Tyler Huntley stands out as a great quarterback prospect who the Chicago Bears could take a flyer on late in the 2020 NFL Draft. Huntley was a three-year starter at Utah and put up solid production throughout his college career. He is a true dual-threat quarterback prospect who fits the modern game extremely well and could have a bright future if he develops certain parts of his game.

Huntley is a fast and athletic quarterback who shows the ability to make plays on the fly. He also shows tremendous pocket awareness, sensing pressure well and having the quickness to escape. Huntley is not a big-armed quarterback, but he does have solid overall arm talent. He can fit the ball into tight spaces at times. I would say something similar about his accuracy, Huntley is not consistently accurate, but he can place the ball on a dime at times and anticipates well.

Decision making is the biggest issue here. He simply reads the opposing defense too slow and does not do a great job of working through his progressions. Huntley panics at times and simply makes too many poor decisions.

He is not a perfect prospect, but Huntley is an exciting player who is worth taking a shot on late in the 2020 NFL Draft as a developmental prospect. With enough development, you never know what he could become. He certainly has the raw ability to turn into an interesting player.

Round 7, Pick 233

7. EDGE. Tulsa. Trevis Gipson. player. 57. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis

With their final pick of this mock draft, the Chicago Bears take a shot on some defensive upside at the edge rusher position. Trevis Gipson is a long edge defender who shows a fair bit of athleticism and flexibility on the edge.

Next. Grading Bears' early offseason moves. dark

He is an underdeveloped player who is a bit slow off of the ball and does not have a wide array of pass-rush moves, but his combination of length and athleticism could play at the next level. Gipson is not ready to make an immediate impact, but he could turn into an interesting situational rusher down the line.
