Every sim I just stare at Leo Chenal on the board and think about how awesome he'd be next to Roquan... I know everyone says he can't cover but I love the idea of him flying toward the backfield every play like a maniac. These are the types of Bears Fan tendencies we need to set aside when we're wearing our simulated GM hat :)

I don't think Chenal is a good fit for Tampa2 MLB, but I like him a lot at SLB.

His valuation is all over the place right now. If it ends up being higher end, it's not happening. But on the off chance that he makes it to 148, that's a good play.

Weirdly only got trade offers on 1 pick - the first one - so this ended up being an unintentional No Trade.
I really like all the values and scheme fits a lot here, but it also highlights just how horribly insufficient 5 picks is to fix all the issues.

This year more than others you gotta hope that the draft is just bringing in guys to compete. You can assume 1 starter at best

Good draft. Metchie has been falling apparently. I guess other guys moved up via the all star games?

I'm curious where you see Pietre and Chanel playing, and how soon you want to start Fortner.

I did one I love because of the value. I would have liked to add at DB but it didn't fall that way and I couldn't pass these guys up

R2:39 Bernhard Raimann OT - athleticism good fit for outside zone + deep ball scheme
Trade R3:71 & R5:148 for R3:77 & R4:104
R3:77 Boye Mafe EDGE - speed and upside
R4:104 Skyy Moore WR - big play ability
R5:144 Tyler Smith OG (prob) - a killer and tone-setter they should line up next to Jenkins and watch that side brawl
R6:185 Christian Watson WR - senior bowl darling

Pietre is just a ball player so you find a way to use him. We don't have a starting nickel or a 2nd safety so you can start there.

Chanel is very clearly a MIKE with Roquan moving to WILL.

Not sure about how soon Fortner can start but you obviously bring him in to compete. I haven't done that much research but the reports are promising.

I just realized how vastly different the boards are on PFN and NFL Mock Draft Simulator. My attempt today was to try to do a simultaneous draft on both sites to see if I can get the same player on both. Doing this makes the odds of a non-realistic drop null. Luckily was able to trade 39 for 46 and 183 on both sites to get an extra pick for the exercise.

46) The choice was between WR George Pickens (ranked 51 on NFLMD and 78 on PFN), OG Jamaree Salyer (64 and 158), CB Derion Kendrick (78 and 56), OG Ed Ingram (117 and 70) and DT Travis Jones (56 and 72). I was kind of thinking that I could still have one of the two gaurds on board at 71 so knocked them out of consideration. I can see the Bears adding a decent WR to pair with Mooney in free agency and there is a lot of WR talent, so took Pickens out. Decided Jones was the best value and need so chose him with the first pick.
https://thedraftnetwork.com/player/travis-jones

71) Well shit...both gaurds on gone on NFLMD but luckily someone else was still there on both sites, CB Derion Kendrick! CB is a need and the dude good value at this spot in the draft.
https://thedraftnetwork.com/player/derion-kendrick

148) Really trying to focus on the offense with the next two picks but NFLMD only has RBs, TEs, and LBs listed for the next 15 spots (and none of the TE or LBs matched PFN). OT Matt Waletzko (186 and 140), OT Myron Cunningham (201 and 148), OG Justin Shaffer (181 and 158), WR Bo Melton (163 and 216) and WR Charleston Rambo (253 and 150) were the options I liked. Decided to bolster the line with OG Justin Shaffer
https://www.profootballnetwork.com/just ... port-2022/

150) Went with Rambo over Melton
https://thedraftnetwork.com/player/char ... lEFbDpfRpG

183) LB Zakoby McClain was the highest rated guy on both boards and was a spot the Bears need some young talent. Would be a good backup to Roquan at Will
https://bleacherreport.com/articles/100 ... -auburn-lb

185) Bolstered the TE position with James Mitchell of VT
https://www.si.com/nfl/draft/scouting-r ... esmitchell

Final Draft on both sites:
46. Travis Jones DT Connecticut trade icon
71. Derion Kendrick CB Georgia
148. Justin Shaffer OG Georgia
150. Charleston Rambo WR Miami-Fl
183. Zakoby McClain LB Auburn trade icon
185. James Mitchell TE Virginia Tech

Not my favorite draft, but was still able to bring in guys that should make the roster.

I'd be ecstatic! Kinnard would plug in at RT and allow either Borom or Jenkins to slide in at G. I'm taking some chances with small school guys. But I would love to have those WR's paired with Mooney and whoever we can grab as a FA rental.

CHI 46.
Darian Kinnard OT Kentucky

CHI 76.
Christian Watson WR North Dakota State

CHI 77.
Skyy Moore WR Western Michigan

CHI 141.
Shaun Jolly CB Appalachian State

As much as Combine makes me want to run out and start doing fresh sims, it's going to take a while before their rankings absorb the new post-Combine reality.

Post-Mack PFF mock.

Lotsa trades, all of which the sim hated. I realized too late that they gave us the Chargers' 2022 sixth-round pick. And they listed Christian Watson as a CB from Tennessee Tech, but I didn't notice until pick 227, so I let him go.

39 and 195 for 41, 150, and 227
41 for 47, 117, and 156
47, 156, and 185 for 57, 89, and 127
89 and 117 for 75
127 and 144 for 103

The sim loved all of these guys:
49: Lewis Cine, S, Georgia
57: Skyy Moore, WR, Western Michigan
71: Tyler Smith, OL, Tulsa
75: Alec Pierce, WR, Cincinnati

Aaaaand the sim absolutely hated each of these picks, except for 148:
103: Zyon McCollum, CB, Sam Houston State
148: Matthew Butler, DT, Tennessee
150: Cam Jurgens, C, Nebraska
227: Esezi Otomewo, DL, Minnesota

At this point, a draft that's half-linemen is a good draft. And I like all these guys--had no idea that Butler, for instance, was so athletic until the combine. If we put Smith and Jenkins on the same side, next to Jurgens, that's almost 1,000 pounds of smiling nastiness to build on.

Cine should be a good tone-setter for the secondary, and McCollum is a marvel who can cover while being taller than some teams' TEs (an F for that guy in the fourth round?) They both look like they'll be problems for other teams, but I'm still not convinced that we have the defensive staff to take advantage of those kinds of difference-making talents.

Moore and Pierce should complement each other and Mooney awfully nicely. A lot to build on there. And of course we add Jequez Ezzard as an undrafted FA.
So much road and so few places, so much friendliness and so little intimacy, so much flavour and so little taste.

No mocks since the big trade?

Lots may change over the next few days of FA, but here goes.

Trade 39 to BUF for 57, 89, 127 and 2023 4th

49: Roger McCreary, CB, Auburn
PFF BIG BOARD RANK, 54
HEIGHT
6' 0"
WEIGHT
190
CLASS
Sr.
AGE
22.0

PFF Profile
McCreary is an ultra-smooth corner who rarely cedes much separation. He's been battle-tested with 75 targets but has allowed only 34 catches while mixing in 13 pass breakups. His lack of length is concerning if he wants to stick on the outside.

NFL Draft Profile
Press-man cornerback with physical limitations that could create occasional roller-coaster matchups on Sundays. McCreary is aggressive, with the play strength to bully the release and alter route timing. He lacks fluidity in lateral transitions from off-man and lacks make-up burst to stay connected to cross-country routes. Tall receivers have advantages on jump balls and fades, but finding catch space will be a chore for opponents when he's in phase on vertical routes. He has average starting talent as a CB2/3 but needs to operate in a scheme that allows him to play hugged-up coverage, limiting operating space for wideouts.

"He's not a Cover 3 corner so I doubt pro teams will use him like Auburn did. I love him. His playing style can be intimidating if you are physically weak." -- Personnel director for AFC team
57: Jalen Tolbert, WR, South Alabama
PFF BIG BOARD RANK, 61
HEIGHT
6' 3"
WEIGHT
190
CLASS
Jr.
AGE
23.0

PFF Profile
Tolbert is one of the best big-play threats in college football. His 16 deep receptions ranked fifth in all of college football in 2021.

NFL Draft Profile
Silky smooth athlete who has morphed into a monster over the last two seasons. Tolbert is a high-character prospect with skill elements that are dripping with NFL potential. He gave work to everyone he faced, including SEC cover corners at Tennessee. His three-sport background offers unique perspective to pull from at his position, and his route-running gives him a leg up in camp battles early on. His traits, talent and production should push him up the board, and dialing up the competitive spirit could turn him into a top-flight WR2.
71: Cameron Thomas, DE, San Diego State
PFF BIG BOARD RANK, 55
HEIGHT
6' 5"
WEIGHT
270
CLASS
Jr.
AGE
22.1

PFF Profile
While Thomas played like a versatile jumbo defensive end at San Diego State, he showed up only 264 at the Senior Bowl and then didn't practice all week. Considering his best reps often came from the interior, that's a touch concerning.

NFL Draft Profile
In a perfect world, Thomas adds mass and muscle to develop into a starting 3-4 defensive end with interior rush value in nickel packages. He currently carries a scheme-versatile label, but is more of a base 4-3 end with average play strength and a lack of explosiveness to create fear as an edge rusher. The splashy run-stopping data comes via equal parts scheme and effort but might not be a true indicator of what to expect in the pros. A bigger, brawnier version of Thomas would allow teams to align him as an every-down 3-4 end, where his motor and hand work could mismatch guards. Regardless of alignment, he has enough in the toolbox to project as a rotational lineman with starting upside.
89: Christian Thomas, WR, North Dakota State
PFF BIG BOARD RANK
74
HEIGHT
6' 5"
WEIGHT
208
CLASS
Sr.

PFF Profile
The Combine king is more than just a high-level testing athlete that we saw in Indy. He's a super flexible 6-foot-4, 208-pound receiver who can adjust to balls easily outside his frame. The drop issues and ball tracking are a tad concerning, however, as Watson has 16 drops on 120 career catchable.

NFL Draft Profile
A receiver prospect with intriguing measurables and a strong belief in the team aspect of the game, Watson possesses an alluring combination of size and speed. He showed off improved route running and catch strength in 2021. He is much more gifted than his opposition was at NDSU and needs to prove he can elevate his game against bigger, faster players at the next level. He plays hard and fast but needs to add a few more pounds and learn to impose his frame on the coverage. He's a field-stretching option requiring a linear route tree and projects as a capable WR3/4 with more work.

"I love the kid. ... He's going to be great in the locker room and work his tail off every day." -- Scout for AFC team
127: Thayer Munford, G/T, Ohio State
PFF BIG BOARD RANK, 138
HEIGHT
6' 6"
WEIGHT
320
CLASS
Sr.
AGE
22.4

NFL Draft Profile
Munford managed his bump inside to guard in 2021, but a move back to tackle is in his best interest. He is a limited athlete and scheme-dependent in the run game. Coaches will fret over his lack of body control and footwork but he has some upper-body pop to work with if a coach can get his hand placement corrected. On his 2020 tape, he is usually first in with his hands and has the ability to derail the rush when he closes the distance properly. His heavy feet prevent fluid change of direction or sustained mirroring so matchup-based struggles are likely. He's a below-average run blocker who can look unorthodox in pass protection, but he's long and understands how to use his length to make blocks. He'll eventually be a starting tackle with guard flexibility.
144: Jack Sanborn, LB, Wisconsin
PFF BIG BOARD RANK, 145
HEIGHT
6' 2"
WEIGHT
236
CLASS
Sr.

NFL Draft Profile
Average inside linebacker between the tackles and much more limited when the play flows out into space. Sanborn lacks the length and athleticism desired of an NFL linebacker, but he's technically sound and in his element as a face-up tackler when the action flows downhill at him. He's tough and plays with good recognition of run-scheme design to help him play faster, but he's unlikely to out-muscle or out-athlete NFL competition. Sanborn has the potential to land a backup role at inside linebacker.
148: Pierre Strong Jr, TB, South Dakota State
PFF BIG BOARD RANK, 141
HEIGHT
5' 11"
WEIGHT
205
CLASS
Jr.

NFL Draft Profile
Instinctive running back with NFL traits and talent to find a home as a committee back or an eventual RB1. Hyper-focused vision provides him a variety of cut options and rush paths but also causes him to overthink his approach at times. Strong is more reactive than manipulative but is quite impressive with his spatial awareness and ability to slalom around bodies on a smooth, linear pathway without slowing his roll. He struggles when forced to slow his feet and make early cuts. He needs a north/south run scheme where he can square his pads and find his rhythm quickly. Strong lacks third-down value at this time, but has shown enough to believe it could be in his future.
185: Tycen Anderson, CB, Toledo
PFF BIG BOARD RANK, 166
HEIGHT
6' 2"
WEIGHT
210
CLASS
Sr.

NFL Draft Profile
Three-year starter who aligned as a big nickel and box add-on at Toledo and will likely be targeted in that same capacity by pro teams. Anderson's size, length and speed stand out on tape. He's a determined run supporter who plays with adequate block take-on and play strength near the line of scrimmage. He's a rangy, long tackler with the ability to short-circuit outside runners. Anderson has the potential to handle coverage underneath but might not have the instincts or ball skills to handle additional coverage duties. He has the ability to fit as backup down safety with upside.

#132 - Danny Gray WR SMU

LOVE my 2 Offensive Tackles, love my 2 wide receivers, Centre is great, I’ve always seen Borom as a Guard, potentially Patrick and Jenkins can also play guard - so offensively I’m buzzing.
My defensive picks all have a huge amount of potential and Flus is the man to exploit that potential. They provide a vital level of depth.

Pretty happy with this one. I don't know if Burks fits the offense, but he was by far the best player on the board at 39. Traded down a handful of times and netted some decent prospects.

39. Treylon Burks - WR Arkansas

TRADE 84. Nicholas Petit-Frere - OT Ohio State

TRADE 100. Channing Tindall - LB Georgia

TRADE 107. Nick Cross - S Maryland

TRADE 110. Jalyn Armour-Davis - CB Alabama

TRADE 138. Cole Strange - OG Chattanooga

148. Dare Rosenthal - OT Kentucky

TRADE 164. Markquese Bell - S Florida A&M

165. Tyreke Smith - EDGE Ohio State

JMSO, if Burks doesn't fit your offense, you need a different offense. :D

Superstars of Combine edition

A lot of physically elite, raw talent. Which I think makes sense for our situation.
I would envision a lot of guys here getting a little playing time at the end of the year and becoming starters in 2023.
I took a number of guys well before necessary on the board, bc I expect them to go much sooner.

My Selections

2-61 Breece Hall RB | Iowa State Iowa State
5112 217 4.39
Not planned, but after trading down twice, nothing else was anywhere near this value. Arguably the best back in the draft.

3-71 Troy Andersen MLB | Montana State Montana State
6034 243 4.42
Hasn't played LB long, but...yeah, I think he can handle the deep drops.

3-76 Sam Williams DE | Mississippi Mississippi
6035 261 4.46
Someone has to replace Mack and this is more promising than Gipson

3-93 Abraham Lucas OT | Washington State Washington State
6063 315 4.92
Really not that many pure Ts I like, but he should be decent.

4-102 Cole Strange G | Chattanooga Chattanooga
6043 307 5.03
Ranked at 85, which is more reasonable, but he slid.

4-109 Zach Tom C | Wake Forest Wake Forest
6037 304 4.94
Take that for an athletic C

4-118 Zyon McCollum CB | Sam Houston State Sam Houston State

I don't expect the same career from him, but his monster combine was extremely similar to Tillman's (who rocketed from R5-6 to early 2). He could be long gone by 118.

4-127 Romeo Doubs WR | Nevada Nevada

5-148 J.T. Woods FS | Baylor Baylor

I'd much rather see him and DHC than any more of Eddie.

5-150 Markquese Bell SS | Florida A&M Florida A&M

6-185 Isaiah Weston WR | Northern Iowa Northern Iowa

Mind blowing combine hasn't moved him much yet. Has to happen at some point.

6-186 Micah McFadden SLB | Indiana Indiana

Can probably back up all 3 positions, maybe even become an adequate starter.

7-252 Connor Heyward FB | Michigan State Michigan State

7-255 D'Eriq King HB/WR/PR/KR/QB | Miami (FL) Miami (FL)

You can roster him as your 4th HB or 6th WR. It's not like we're overflowing with talent - or even bodies.

7-262 Dustin Crum QB | Kent State Kent State

He'd have to go to PS for at least 1 yr, of course, but this ensures he starts his career here.

We definitely need 2 offensive tackles in my opinion and I think that’s how Poles will strategise. Build through the draft suggests to me he wants 2 or 3 genuine starters from the draft so I’d say one WR and 2 OTs.

Most of these are nice choices.

I will say, there's next to no chance the Bears draft Sam Williams, or anyone else with his kind of history. But the idea is worthwhile.

In theory, I would be fine with that.
The difficulty is - there are very few guys in the draft that I would say are:

very likely to stay at T
very likely to become starters
going to be there at 39 or later


There's plenty of interesting candidates if you want a "maybe he'll be a tackle, maybe he'll have to move inside, but he's a good bet to start somewhere" type.
But we already have 2 maybe T maybe G guys. Take 2 more and you're liable to end up with 3-4 Gs and 1 or 0 tackles.
