Chicago Bears mock draft

New 2023 mock draft features intriguing WR for Bears in 2nd round

2023 NFL mock drafts will undergo a massive change in the first-round landscape once the NFL Combine kicks off next week. Players slotted at or near the top of Round 1 will slowly fall, while prospects who run faster and jump higher than their draft classmates will skyrocket in rankings.

But for a team like the Chicago Bears, who hold the No. 1 overall pick, the cluster of elite players at the top of the first round will likely remain the same. It’ll be pretty easy to predict the three or four prospects GM Ryan Poles will target with his first selection.

In the latest two-round mock draft from CBS Sports, the first pick is Alabama edge rusher Will Anderson Jr.

In this mock draft, the Bears don’t trade out of the No. 1 selection and instead use it to bolster their pass rush. “Will Anderson is in the same pre-draft conversations as Chase Young and Nick Bosa when it comes to best non-QB players in a class,” CBS Sports’ Ryan Wilson wrote.

Bears fans will be perfectly happy with Anderson as the team’s first pick, even if there’s a bit of disappointment without a trade-down with a team like the Indianapolis Colts.
