Jordan Morgan might be gone before this pick in real-time. He was on the board in this simulation and the Bears would be wise to take the talented offensive lineman.

Morgan is the sixth-best offensive tackle prospect according to NFLDraftBuzz.com. His short arms are a reason to move him inside to guard.

Nate Davis was bad last season and Teven Jenkins is in the final year of his contract, so the Bears could use reinforcements at guard. Also, Jenkins has issues staying on the field with his injury history. The franchise just released long-time guard Cody Whitehair, so the interior is currently thin.

Morgan made 37 career starts at Arizona. He came back from a torn ACL late in the 2022 season to have a great senior year. He has experience in zone blocking that offensive line coach Chris Morgan likes to run. Tight ends coach Jim Dray served as one of his offensive line coaches at the Senior Bowl, so the team will be familiar with Morgan.

Morgan had an impressive Senior Bowl, especially in practice.

Morgan also fits the character traits the Bears desire in a prospect.

He is listed between 310-325 pounds, so Poles might ask Morgan to slim down. He made the same request with Darnell Wright and that worked out fine. Morgan can also be given a try at left tackle to provide some competition to incumbent Braxton Jones. The key is the Bears need to continue to build up the offensive line no matter who is the quarterback.
