How did the Chicago Bears build their NFL Draft 2018 over all seven rounds?
As the days go back to the NFL Draft, we will be using a few different designs to see some situations where the Chicago Bears should be looking during the design weekend. As always, the discussion should focus on how certain players fit into certain spots, not whether they are there at the time or not. To find a pool of players, we use fanspeak.com. The complaints about whether a player is nearby or not fall on deaf ears.
Mock Draft 1
Mock Draft 2.0
Mock Draft 3.0
Roquan Smith  LB, Georgia
In two of our three mocks we have Quenton Nelson seen fall. After playing Tremaine Edmunds on the third bill, it was just a good chance to see how a board could be built with Roquan Smith. Smith has not completed his full testing at the combine, but his combination of speed and instincts shows
As in the Roquan Smith Vs. Edmunds Edmunds movie room described by Edmunds In terms of his understanding and ability to read and respond with lightning speed, Smith makes a much safer bet on Pick eight. If he's around, he might be the best player on the board. The selection makes sense.
C, Ohio State
Price was once a fringe of the first round, but with a chest injury found in the second round. However, he has heard nothing but positive news about his injury. He does not blow you away with measurable and athletic moves and if he had participated in the healthy combine, nothing much had changed. Although Price does not have the benefit of a James Daniel, or maybe even a Frank Ragnow, he may have an even higher floor, even with the injury asterisks. Coming from the state of Ohio, there seems to be a high pedigree, which one can have after the last few years.
Your lineman may not be the biggest or the most athletic. They do not win All-Pro Awards, but evolve over the offensive line into valuable starters. This is exactly how Price presents himself.
It gives the team the chance to bring Cody Whitehair back to safety, his natural position, and gives Mitchell Trubisky an intelligent and powerful center in the middle. If Price is to miss too much off-season, Hroniss Grasu is there. From there, they can hand in the keys and see what they have in their new offensive.
With a linebacker added round one, the team can sit back and wait for the edge. But now it's time to jump. Nwosu has a very different edge than most others, and that is what will make him fall. In the Vic Fangio defense he will probably love what Nwosu brings.
As shown in his athletic profile, he is a smaller Pass Rusher who wins with speed and a springy outburst. Nwosu is great at distracting passports in the line of attack. Although he is not a sophisticated edge breaker and should not get hot at every single snap, his ability to be lightning fast and use speed to find a clean path to quarterback makes him a valuable piece in the passing game.
Versatile Pass Rogers is the name of the game for Fangio. Nwosu can further mislead Floyd's passers-by, and the mixing and match-flashing and dropping of Floyd and Nwosu could cause the teams a headache. In the fourth round he is a great addition.
WR, Colorado State
The crew went out and immediately signed Benny Fowler and Marlon Brown's loss to Cameron Meredith. It shows that the team wanted Meredith back at a certain price and that they understand that they are currently weaker when the recipient enters the draft than they wish
Gallup is a fascinating prospect for the bears. He is a physical receiver, but a fine runner. It can stretch out in the open and in the slot, and you can be in the middle of it with the ball in your hands. His ability to create a separation near the line of attack and the field makes him a perfect match to the attack. In the following he separates from Anthony Averett and Isaiah Oliver, two draft brochures.
The bears have shown interest in Oliver, and if they've watched Michael Gallup, they should also be interested in Gallup in the fourth round.
With the signing of Bryce Callahan, it is noteworthy that he has signed a one-year contract that is far below the starting value. It's not that the team is tied to him. Enter Avonte Maddox. Maddox is interesting and comes in similar size to Callahan.
However, Maddox plays much bigger. He has fast feet and physicality to position himself on larger receivers. He's just not physically tall enough to stay out in the NFL, but with his ability to physically flash and break on break-in stretches, he can find a job in the slot.
Maddox plays with hardship to join special teams, and if he opens in 2019 as a starter, nobody should be surprised.
The Chicago Bears will probably want to tackle this design someday. You can not hang on to Bobby Massie as a starter forever. In the sixth round, given the size and athleticism of Brandon Parker, he is worth a try.
Parker was a player who still filled his body in college and still replenishes his body until today. Its range, size and athleticity together give a much higher prospect than anyone who went to NC A & T. He is an embarrassing move, however, still used to his body. He needs to understand better how he can better use and use his range. It may take time, but with the top offensive line coach in college football last season in Chicago, the project may begin.

Joe Ostman  EDGE, Central Michigan
Ostman is a short-armed, short strider who did not get a combine invitation , However, he tested on his Pro Day from the charts and was shaken like an NFL pass Ruster.
Ostman has limited profits due to his short range. He is, however, a precise mover who has the entire repertoire of pass rushing moves. He's a hectic player who obviously worked hard to get where he is. Ostman can play in special teams, and although he may never be a starter, he should translate into a situational pass rusher. Since Nwosu is such a versatile edge player, adding a pure pass rusher is so late in the swing.
