The offensive tackle that ESPN’s draft guru McShay believes Stanford’s offensive tackle Jonathan Martin will be drafted by Chicago if he is still available.
McShay said this about the Stanford tackle in his mock draft: “Martin needs to add some strength, but he could pair with 2011 first-round OT Gabe Carimi to give offensive coordinator Mike Tice a pair of bookends to coach up.”
The Bears other positions of need are DE, CB, WR, S, TE and LB.
McShay goes on to predict the Bears second round pick as well. With that pick (#50) he believes the Bears will draft Clemson tight end Dwayne Allen.
The NFL draft begins Thursday, April 26, 2012 and ends Saturday, April 28, 2012.
It will be interesting to see how the draft plays out for the Bears.
