In the third round, the Bears take their shot on a guy who once was looked at as a first rounder in offensive tackle Walker Little out of Stanford. The 6-foot-7 beast opted out of the 2020 college football season after missing the 2019 season due to a knee injury.

After a stellar 2018 season which saw Little earn All American honors and All Pac-12, Little suffered a knee injury and, thus, has not played in quite some time. There were many mock drafts and experts which had Little as a top-15 pick at one point, but without playing for so long now, suffering the knee injury and missing the 2020 campaign, how will his draft stock be affected?

Honestly, the fact he was available at this point via The Draft Network simulator is impressive. Even with everything going against him, Little has plenty of time to show people he is not only healthy but ready and in football shape. If he partakes in the Combine next spring, he could do a lot to improve his standing with scouts.

Little has great length and hands. Just like one of the scouting reports via TDN, if he gets his hands on you, he wins. He can easily make it to the second level, too, which is key for today’s NFL offenses.

A tackle in Round 3 means Charles Leno and Bobby Massie are immediately put on notice, which is everything fans could ask for. This unit needs more competition, and with Little on board, they get it.
