The BearsAdd Some Depth to the Offensive Line in Round 4

Mason McCormick. 2496. . Mason McCormick. 4. Another pick. . No. 122 overall. Guard. player

The Bears added Bates and Coleman Shelton to compete for the starting center spot. Whoever loses the job will most likely be the swing guard. That still does not mean the Bears should look to add depth along the interior of the offensive line.

Ja'Tyre Carter has shown some promise during the preseason, but he has not exactly established himself during the regular season. Teven Jenkins is the team's best offensive lineman, but he has trouble staying on the field and will be a free agent after the season. Nate Davis played poorly for most of the season.

That is why it makes sense for the Bears to add McCormick. His athleticism is what the front office desires in an offensive lineman. He meets the durability requirement as he started 57 consecutive games. The Bears could "redshirt" him this season by making him inactive while he develops and then have a potential replacement should Jenkins depart in free agency next offseason.

The Bears Add Another Receiver in Round 5

. Wide Receiver. 455. Another pick. . No. 147 overall. Javon Baker. player. Javon Baker. 5

The Bears need to add some more receivers to that group. Baker is six feet, one inch with a 37-inch vertical. He ran a 4.5 40-yard dash at the combine. He projects to be a third wide receiver.

There is nothing wrong with that as the Bears need to add some pass catchers around Williams. He comes with his positives and negatives, but in the fifth round, you can say that with every player.

He is also durable as he played in 27 games during his final two seasons with UCF. He found the endzone 12 times during that time.

The Bears End the Draft With a Steal on the Edge

. Pass Rusher. player. Jonah Elliss. Jonah Elliss. 5. 2456. last pick. . No. 153 overall

There are varied opinions on where Elliss will go. He could be a Day 2 pick, but his size issue exposes him against the run.

In this mock simulation, he fell. If he is still on the board, and the Bears are wheeling and dealing to add picks, this would be a steal.

Someone falls a round or two as it is the nature of the draft. Elliss can find the quarterback and would be a great third-down pass rusher to have.
