Mel Wulfy Jr's Final Mock Draft

Wed Apr 22, 2020 8:57 pm

Of course we all posting these now so we can have the "I told you so" moment - and then we'll conveniently forget about them when Our Guys suck.

Round 2 | Pick 11: CB Jaylon Johnson | Utah | 6-0, 193 | 4.50/40
Image
Of the corners who could be available at 11, I like him the best. If Gladney fell, I would take him over Johnson. AJ Terrell is my next favorite after Johnson. I think this is a great example where BPA and Need overlap. Versus some of the other corners, I think he will excel in a Man Press scheme like the Bears.


Round 2 | Pick 18 : Like most, I feel Pace will move down from here to pick up a 3rd round pick. He trades pick 50 to the Ravens for Pick 60 and Pick 106

Round 2 | Pick 28: Matt Hennesey | OG/C | Temple 6-4 307
Image
Fits the mold of what Castillo is looking for in a smart, athletic lineman who can get to the second level. He stood out at the Senior Bowl and his game tape has caused him to move up draft boards in this unique period of NFL scouting.

Round 3 | Pick 42: WR Devin Duvernay | Texas | 5-11, 200 | 4.39
Image
It pained me so not to pick My Guy Harrison Bryant here - but I think for a true Big Play WR is even greater than the need for a TE. Duvernay has really been over-looked in this draft and brings Mims-type speed (4.39) and big time production (nearly 1400 yards on over 100 catches and 9 Tuddies).


Round 5 | Pick 17: TE Jared Pinkney| Vanderbilt | 6-4, 257 | 4.63
Top rated TE coming into this season but had HORRIBLE QB play. Very Desmond Clarkish.
Round 6 | Pick 17: QB Anthony Gordon | Washington State | 6-2, 205
Better than Minshew.
Round 6 | Pick 21: OG Danny Pinter | Ball State | 6-4, 306
Was hoping for a worn out tape of Shane Lemieux, but he'll be gone. Former tackle with T-Rex arms and that will keep him inside at guard.
Round 7 | Pick 12: DT Raequan Williams | Michigan State | 6-4, 308 | 5.04
Local kid with a great story - good traits, needs some coaching. Really good at batting balls in the air.
Round 7 | Pick 19: RB Levante Bellamy | Western Michigan | 5-9, 192 | 4.50
Super productive MAC RB with good athletic traits. Plus he can catch.

I have Pinkney and Parkinson as my day 3 potential TE targets. Awful athletic metrics but, IMO, have produced better "tape" than what they did in 2019.

First 43 starts:

Drew Brees: 61.1% | 8760 yards | 57 TDs | 40 INTs | 6.65 YPA | 82.5

Mitch Trubisky: 63.2% | 8986 yards | 53 TDs | 31 INTs | 6.7 YPA | 86.1

Jaylon's injury history is a Red Flag for me

Interesting that you see CB as more of a need than S (didn't address that at all). I actually view it the same way as I have a whole lot of faith in Bush. Would like to see some backup there though. The one thing that you have to realize with one of those CBs falling (which I think they will) is that's your trade bait to move down. Out of curiosity, who's there at #50 that you foresee as trade bait? I really like A.J Green later who's a similar type corner without as much speed.

With the Hennessey pick, I assume both Ruiz and Cushenberry are gone?

Love the Duvernay pick.

I'm not big on Pinkney. I think there are other TEs who can be had later like Sullivan (ask Rich lol), Asiasi, Deguerra, or Breeland. Six might be too late for Gordon. Might need to take him here, but myself, with the choices you have, I'd go guard here. Maybe Onwenu? Love that guy. Real mauler. Not sure if he fits our scheme though. Or Runyan?

Real problem with the draft? NO AnnnnToooooKNeeeeeeeOOOH! lol

Yogi (and anyone else who wants to jump in)......if the Bears go CB/WR with our first two picks, no trade downs, don't care which goes first....who you taking?

First, I think we have to absolutely trade down. I like A.J. Green a lot late, but if I have to go CB/WR with our first two picks, I like A.J. Terrell with that first pick if he falls.

I like Mims or Claypool with our second. Of those two, I like Mims more because he has more quickness. There's a reason why Claypool didn't attempt any of the quickness drills at the Combine. Although he has long speed, he moves like a TE in his routes. Mims' problem, and why he may drop, is handling press coverage. I have faith in Nagy to scheme him open until Mims develops the functional strength to beat press coverage on his own. But I have no problem taking Claypool there if Mims is gone. Don't want Hamler.

Truthfully though, I'd look at an OT first if one falls. Josh Jones I'd jump all over with our first pick.

I like the idea of trading down, but 1) you need a partner to trade down with, and 2) if the consensus is that there's no big difference between 35 and 55, other teams are unlikely to offer much of a premium to maneuver.

Agreed but I could see a run on S, RB, or a couple of the WR potentially causing someone to jump.
