The Anti-Mock Draft: Players the Chicago Bears Should Avoid in the Draft

Had enough of mock drafts?

Can I interest you in an "anti-mock draft"?

(OK, I admit I made that term up.)

This doesn't mean I'm against mock drafts. Rather, the "anti-mock draft" will give you a player the Bears should NOT take in each round of the draft.

With all the speculation over who the Bears could or should take, no one has mentioned which prospects they should pass on.

If Bears GM Phil Emery takes these guys, then it would be a literal "mock draft"—as in "laugh at us draft".

And these are not picks that are bad because they are simply nonsensical. In other words, I'm not going to say "In the first round, a bad Bears pick would be sixth-round quarterback prospect Kellen Moore." Nor would I say something like, "In the third round, the Bears take first-round offensive tackle Mike Adams."

Who wants to read inane blather like that?

No, these picks will be guys realistically slotted in their projected round, who the Bears could reasonably have available to them and who the Bears might be interested in from a positional standpoint.

But these picks will be bad because I project these prospects to be busts.

So who are these bums?
