Bears

Mock draft roundup: Who do experts think Bears will select in 2nd round?

Washington defensive back Kyler Gordon lines up against Oregon State on Nov. 14, 2020, in Seattle.

The NFL draft is only two weeks away. The Bears are one of a whopping eight teams that don’t have a first-round draft pick this year. There are also eight teams who currently have two first-round selections.

The Bears traded this year’s first-round pick a year ago in the draft-night trade that sent them up nine spots in order to select quarterback Justin Fields. Many fans are probably OK with that move, given that they received a promising young quarterback out of the deal. But the Bears are going to have a tougher time finding instant-impact players this year without their top pick.

In trading Pro Bowl pass rusher Khalil Mack last month, they picked up an additional second-round selection, giving them both the 39th overall pick and the 48th overall pick, both in the second round. The Bears have six total picks in the draft.

While mock drafts are hugely popular this time of year, not all of those published out there extend past the first round. To get a broader picture of who the Bears might be considering with their two second-round picks, we took a look at some of the multi-round mock drafts and compiled them here.
