Chicago Bears 4th Round Targets: OT Stone Forsythe, Florida
Quite frankly, there is no round in which offensive tackle is off limits for the Bears. Even if they go offensive tackle early in the first or second round, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to draft another one.
Sooner or later, Charles Leno will be out of his role and onto a different team. It might not be this year, but the Bears certainly want to plan for his replacement. Right tackle is a bigger concern right now, but the Bears could afford to look at multiple tackles in this draft.
Florida’s Stone Forsythe is a possibility in the middle rounds and would be worth moving up for. For starters, he has football in his blood as the son of former NFL lineman Ray Forsythe. The 6-foot-8 mammoth comes from the Gators to the NFL as a formidable, starting-caliber tackle.
He does incredibly well in pass protection and, for his size, is actually quite smooth. One bonus for drafting Forsythe is the Bears get a guy who is comfortable on both sides. He has played right and left tackle for the Gators, so even if the Bears do draft a top-tier tackle in the early rounds and place him at left tackle, Forsythe could challenge Leno and others on the right side.
