2011 NFL Mock Draft: Chicago Bears Protect QB with Derek Sherrod
2011 NFL Mock Draft Has Derek Sherrod Standing Strong for Jay Cutler, Chicago Bears at No. 29
If you watched the Chicago Bears play football in 2010-2011, you know that offensive line help is their major need going into next season.

Unfortunately for the Bears, this is not even close to their only need and defensive tackle, wide receiver and cornerback could stand for upgrades as well.
There are a few defensive tackles that fit well here, but wide receiver would be a reach and the Bears would do better to find a cornerback in a later round as well.
Derek Sherrod is one of the top offensive tackles in the draft and might be the most NFL-ready pass blocker in the class. He does not excel at anything, but he is great in every phase of the game and will immediately help this team.
His value and ability overtake their need for a defensive tackle and they can search for that position in the second round.
