Chicago Bears: Analyzing 10 Potential 1st-Round Draft Picks

Whitney Mercilus could be the Bears first choice in the draft.

I have mocked until I'm blue (and orange) in the face. Some of you have agreed with my selections, some of you would rather I take a long walk off a short plank. But I think all Bears fans can agree on one thing: there is no certain pick for Chicago at No. 19 in the draft.

In my mocks, I have had the Bears taking a wide receiver, a cornerback, a defensive end, a center and an offensive tackle. Of all of them, I'd say that my latest mock garnered the most negative commentary.

Yet regardless of which position you may feel the Bears need to upgrade, a compelling argument can be made for the Bears to take the best player available as long as that player does not play quarterback, running back, safety (it's a weak class) or the more obvious positions (punter, kicker, et al).

Meanwhile, that leaves quite a few candidates for Chicago to choose from. In this piece, I will take a look at players the Bears may realistically have a shot at, even though some may be taken before the team picks at No. 19.

So not all of these guys will still be on the board, but each of them are worthy of consideration. That said, let's analyze the best and know that there's a good chance that one of them ends up wearing a Bears uniform.
