Chicago Bears mock draft composite part 1

DJ Fluker

Mock drafts come a dime a dozen these days, and projections seem to change by the minute. Since the NFL Draft Combine started a few days ago, you can expect every draft expert to be shuffling prospect’s names all over their big boards as their stock rises or falls.

It’s still way too early to make a concrete prediction as to who the Bears will pick with the 20th overall pick on April 25th, but there are some definite trends starting to emerge in terms of names being linked to that pick.

It’s no secret that the main concerns for the Bears include the offensive line, linebackers, the offensive line, tight ends, and the offensive line. Did I mention the offensive line?

A quick trek through the internet will confirm this: almost every expert has an offensive lineman, linebacker, or tight end going to the Bears in the first round in their respective mock drafts.

To save you the arduous task of Google searching for multiple mock drafts, I’ve compiled a list of multiple projections from some of the most notable draft experts around. (View this site’s 1st round mock draft)

Granted, this list may change 10 seconds after this article gets published. But at the very least, we can see some of the early popular Bears mock draft picks for who may be heading to the Windy City.

It’s never too soon to think about how the Bears can improve for next season. I have some suggestions for GM Phil Emery.

I think with 2 key moves in the offseason, the Bears can find themselves on the right side of lopsided final scores like we saw in Jacksonville, only against much better opponents than the Jaguars.

Tennessee QB Tyler Bray leaving school early for NFL Draft

tennessee volunteer cheerleaders

QB Tyler Bray is leaving Tennessee to put his name into April’s NFL Draft, a source tells CBS. Bray has a reputation as a bit of head case. You might even classify him as (with apologies to “Bull Durham”) a million dollar arm, ten cent head. Or perhaps this draft’s version of Ryan Mallett, Ryan Leaf, Jimmy Claussen etc.

So now that Bray’s Vols career is over, where will he end up?

Purdue’s Kawann Short looks like top 15 pick in 2013 NFL Draft

kawann-short

Just a week until the 2012 NFL Draft, and we’re working hard updating our mock drafts and positional rankings. But we go even further as we look ahead to the 2013 draft. Next April when teams go looking for an interior pass-rushing presence, they’ll find it in Kawann Short from Purdue.

He’ll likely be a top 15-20 pick next year, after Short will likely be a dominant force for the Boilermakers in the Big Ten. He notched 6.5 sacks in 2011 – a really good number for a 310-pound lineman, and should get even more this year. And he could find himself as coveted a pro prospect as former teammate Ryan Kerrigan was last year.
