2013 NFL Mock Draft (3 Rounds): Chicago Bears Mock Draft

Three months away from the 2013 NFL Draft, all but two teams have shifted their focus to the offseason and draft.

Many sites including ours will attempt to project how the draft will play out and Kevin Hanson has updated his three-round mock draft this weekend. As we get closer to the draft, the plan is to project all seven rounds.

[Hanson's 2013 NFL Mock Draft: Round 1 | Round 2 | Round 3]

Some of you are fans of the NFL draft and take a big-picture view while others only really care how things will shake out for your particular team. Either way, we got you covered as we will start publishing 32 team posts to go along with our full mock draft for you to be able to follow it whatever way you deem appropriate.

In Hanson's updated 2013 mock draft, here are the Chicago Bears picks:

Pick 20. Manti Te'o, LB, Notre Dame

While Manziel won the Heisman Trophy, Te'o finished a close second and an argument could be made that he should have won it. Meanwhile, he won numerous awards including the Maxwell Award and Walter Camp Award, which are national player of the year awards himself.

As an insider linebacker, Te'o has his third consecutive season with 100-plus tackles, but he is also tied for second in the country in interceptions (seven) for the Fighting Irish, who played (and lost to) Alabama in the BCS National Championship Game.

Te'o had his worst game of the season against the Crimson Tide. Unfortunately, that coincides with his final game and against his toughest competition. While that performance certainly doesn't help his draft stock, Te'o should not slip much beyond this point.

Pick 52. Menelik Watson, OT, Florida State

Watson actually came to the US (from England) on a college basketball scholarship and played at a JUCO before transferring to Florida State. Although he is a bit raw, Watson has been clocked at 4.7 in the 40-yard dash, according to his profile page on the Seminoles website.

After Rodgers and Rivers, no player has been sacked more than Bears quarterback Jay Cutler (113) over the past three seasons combined. Cutler has played the fewest games in that trio, however, and averages more sacks per game than the other two.

* The Dolphins own the Bears' third-round pick.
