2019 NFL mock draft: Last minute predictions for Bears & # 39; picks

Draft day is almost over us, ladies and gentlemen. For the players, these coming days will act as the realization of a lifelong dream: playing in the NFL and having to move to a city they do not have control of. For the law, the draft is a chance to start a rebuild phase, transition from a mediocre team to a playoff contender, or add fine tuning to a Super Bowl caliber grid. The Chicago Bears fit under the latter, as their playoff appearance in 2018 indicates they could make a deeper off-season run in the immediate future. Although they have plenty of talent on their list, their team is not one without any holes. Many of them are relatively small right now, but it gives Bears many more options with their draft picks. With just five choices, they have little room for error, but given the success of General Ryan Ryan in the middle of the draft, they should be in good shape. With two suede jackets already during my belt, I decided to give it a final shot before the weekend's festivals. I have included my selections from my first two mocks in this article as a reference, with the post-selected selections listed first and the post-free agency selections listed later.

Draft day is almost over us, ladies and gentlemen.

For the players, these coming days will act as the realization of a lifelong dream: playing in the NFL and having to move to a city they do not have control of. For the law, the draft is a chance to start a rebuild phase, transition from a mediocre team to a playoff contender, or add fine tuning to a Super Bowl caliber grid. The Chicago Bears fit under the latter, as their playoff appearance in 2018 indicates they could make a deeper off-season run in the immediate future.

Although they have plenty of talent on their list, their team is not one without any holes. Many of them are relatively small right now, but it gives Bears many more options with their draft picks. With just five choices, they have little room for error, but given the success of General Ryan Ryan in the middle of the draft, they should be in good shape.

With two suede jackets already during my belt, I decided to give it a final shot before the weekend’s festivals. I have included my selections from my first two mocks in this article as a reference, with the post-selected selections listed first and the post-free agency selections listed later. Any prospect meetings that I mention in this article, I found from Windy City Gridiron’s Aaron Lemings worksheet.

Round 3: Justin Hollins, EDGE, Oregon

The bears can really go in many different directions with their third round, but I think they should move on, unless a player like Miles Sanders or David Montgomery is available on some way. This is a deep class in the position, and the talent that will be available in the fourth or fifth round is just a smaller step than the talent in the third round. That being said, I could see Chicago focusing on a passport rusher in the draft, and the gradual loss of talent there after the third round is much larger than it is in running back.

Justin Hollins is a very impressive athlete for a pass rusher. The six-five-five, 247-pound Oregon alumen ran a 4.5-40-yard dash and had a 36.5-inch vertical jump at the Combine, and that explosion is evident on tape. He burns the ball quickly, he can twist the corner well, and he even has the hip fluid to release back into cover and tight tight ends, backs and some wide receivers. Although he is quite raw from a poodle level and hand-use point of view, he has shown flashes of good hand placement and plays with a high enough engine that he could mask in college. A rotational pass rusher to start his NFL career, Hollins has the physical tools to be a good starter in the pros. Previous Selection: Amani Hooker SS, Iowa; Christian Miller EDGE, Alabama

Round 4: Trayveon Williams, RB, Texas A & M

We here at Windy City Gridiron have widely covered outlook in this year’s draft, and Trayveon Williams has popped up as a popular option for Bears many times. I don’t want to repeat myself or my colleagues’ words too much, but Williams would fit well in Chicago. Earlier Aggie offers visions, agility and interruptions, as well as a small contact balance. His skill set makes him valuable as an outer zone or an inside runner, which would give Bears a mix of the styles of Mike Davis and Tarik Cohen. The team has met him four times in the draft, so interest is definitely there. With its versatility and ability to replenish any role, Chicago would be in good shape on the ground by adding Williams to their backfield.

Earlier Elections: Isaiah Johnson CB, Houston; Devine Ozigbo RB, Nebraska

Round 5: Mike Edwards, SS, Kentucky

Ha Ha Clinton-Dix was a low-risk, high-reward cartoon for Bears to replace Adrian Amos. If he bounces back this year, the team will probably not be able to write in the next season. Without a stable backup at the position, they could watch out for a security with one of their early picks in this year’s draft.

Bears met Mike Edwards on his Pro Day, and if they were to choose him would be meaningful as a future starter along with Eddie Jackson. He is an intelligent security that can diagnose play fast and use his athleticism to change direction and accelerate towards the ball. He has distinguished himself as a safe deposit box, a high security and as a nickelback in college, so he has the experience of going into almost any role in the secondary. Edwards could use a little bulking up because he doesn’t have the strength of his frame to consistently form tags yet. With a season to develop and work on adding some muscle, he could become a starter in the future. Tony Pollard RB, Memphis; Michael Jackson, CB, Miami (FL)

Round 7 (from Philadelphia via Denver): Ugochukwu Amadi, DB, Oregon

The bear would be wise to target a corner of the draft if the value is right. Not only do they need a possible replacement of Prince Amukamara if they release him the next offseason to save money, but they can also work out a smaller, nickelback type of prospect to replace Buster Skrine down the line. Although I do not have them to pick it earlier in this suede, it can be very good value at the nickelback position since day 3.

I have with certainty stolen this selection from James Fox at The Loop Sports, but Ugo Amadi would be a rock solid and realistic selection in the seventh round. Bears had a private training session for him, so the team has shown interest in him. The five foot nine, 197-pound defensive back was technically a security in Oregon, but he also saw a lot of snaps like a nickel corner, which is probably a better fit for him on the next level, given his lack of length. He is a liquid sportsman who can change the direction well and accelerate to get out of his breaks. With seven interceptions, two pick-sixes and 16 passing deflections in the last two seasons, his production restores his ability to break up the passport and close a quarterback window on the tape. He does not offer much as a tackler, and his instincts in coverage can be improved to make him more aggressive in jumps. But with his athleticism and production he could stop being a sleeper late on day 3 that could start as a nickelback in the near future. Previous elections: Garrett Brumfield AND, LSU; Saquan Hampton FS / SS, Rutgers

Round 7: Jon & # 39; Vea Johnson, WR, Toledo

At the end of the draft, most teams do not necessarily search for immediate contributors. Rather, they are realistically looking for quality pieces, and more than that is a great success. Bears does not have to go to distress with his last choice, in order to expect a late seventh round to go in and start straight is in most cases stupid. I said I have them adding another offensive weapon with this selection.

Jon & # 39; Vea Johnson was part of a triangular monster at the wide receiver in Toledo, with teammates Cody Thompson and Diontae Johnson also spreading as potential drafts for this weekend. Although his production was never stellar, he blinked enough on tape to justify the draft. He measured over 20 meters per catch last year and judges himself with his band, it is not difficult to see why Toledo used him as a deep threat. He is explosive of snap and his deep speed is consistently reliable on the go routes. With a 4.35 40-yard dash on his Pro Day, his tape speed definitely matches his tactical speed. Johnson offers value after the catch, as he has very good lateral speed in space. He is not so physical, and his ability to capture tight windows will be questioned. In addition, he will be 24 in December – an older age for an NFL rookie. Still, he has a lack and athletic face for the bears to use a seventh round pick.

Previous picks: Matt Gay K, Utah; Keenan Brown TE, Texas State
