Who Are the Experts Predicting to the Bears in the First Round of the NFL Draft
Steve Cannon

The Chicago Bears have made a bunch of moves to beef up their defense so far this offseason, but that hasn't changed many mock-draft projections.

Since the process began, most mock-drafters had the Bears taking either a defensive tackle or a safety, and that holds true to this day, with the same names being thrown around.

Most of those doing the mock drafts, however, haven't studied what Bears general manger Phil Emery has done in past years or what he has said leading up to the process. Emery wants explosive athletes, as that has been made evident by his first two draft classes as well as the comments he made at this year's combine, per ChicagoBears.com.

Still, some draft experts have players who lack athleticism pegged for the Bears.

In the following slides, you'll see some of those picks along with my analysis.
