Mocking the NFL draft

Mocking the NFL draft

It’s less than two months until the draft, so let the mocking begin. Below is my first, but definitely not my last, attempt at predicting the first round. I see the Bears getting an offensive lineman, but not one of the consensus top four tackles. Actually my pick for the Bears played left tackle in college, but he’s projected as a guard in the NFL. But who knows? Chris Williams was supposed to be a left tackle in the NFL and now he’s a guard. 1. Panthers – DE Da’Quan Bowers, Clemson 2. Broncos – DT Marcell Dareus, Alabama 3.
