Chicago Bears Mock Draft Roundup 3.0

Throughout the year and leading up to the 2021 NFL draft, we will update our Chicago Bears Mock Draft Roundup showing picks for the Chicago Bears from several prominent sites and draft analysts.

For a more inclusive lists of mock drafts for the Chicago Bears, check out our 2021 Chicago Bears Mock Draft Database.

The following are picks in recent mock drafts for the Bears:

EDSFootball - Hanson (1/1)

20. Christian Darrisaw, OT, Virginia Tech

Based on current projected draft order, the Bears are out of reach for any of the top five quarterback prospects. While they had found some success with Mitchell Trubisky reinserted as the starter, long-term questions at the position linger. Instead of reaching for Kyle Trask here, Darrisaw, a three-year starter, has continued to improve each season. His athleticism and length will allow him to handle NFL-caliber edge rushers and he's been dominant as a run blocker as well.

San Diego Union Tribune (12/31)

20. Christian Darrisaw, OT, Virginia Tech

The pick is a wide receiver if Allen Robinson leaves during free agency. Otherwise, an upgrade at tackle is needed after it appears the interior line has been shored up. Darrisaw could find his way into the top 15 if he tests as well as I believe he will during the draft process (assuming we are able to have a combine or pro days).

Touchdown Wire - Schofield (12/31)

20. Jalen Mayfield, OT, Michigan

While Mac Jones might be the kind of quarterback the Bears are looking for, with him coming off the board one pick before they are on the clock, the organization is forced into a different direction.

Perhaps Chicago is really going to stick with Mitchell Trubisky -- and if they do, a more viable Plan B behind him would be a wise investment -- but they also need to address the offensive line. Jalen Mayfield missed time this season due to an ankle injury and only has 15 college starts to his resume, but the talent is there. You saw some of that on display two seasons ago when he matched up with Chase Young in Michigan's loss to Ohio State.

PFF - Gayle (12/29)

20. Rashawn Slater, OT, Northwestern

A former three-star recruit, Slater earned 75.0 and 76.6 PFF grades playing right tackle for Northwestern as a true freshman and sophomore in 2017 and 2018, respectively. His PFF grade jumped up to 90.0 in his first season starting at left tackle for the Wildcats in 2019. He immediately fills a need for the Bears along the offensive line regardless of whether he plays tackle or interior offensive line at the next level.

CBS Sports - Wilson (12/29)

20. Jalen Mayfield, OT, Michigan

Mitchell Trubisky is making a real case for why he deserves to stick around in Chicago, and much like WFT, if they make the playoffs, all the top-tier QBs could already be off the board. And like WFT, the Bears instead opt to bolster the offensive line.

Pro Football Network - Miller (12/26)

20. Rashod Bateman, WR, Minnesota

Bateman had significant buzz throughout the summer, but he's completely fallen off the map despite playing in five games in 2020. If there has been a single highlight from this season for Bateman, I missed it.

He is still a well-rounded receiver, nevertheless, who can separate and win in contested situations. The Bears could lose Allen Robinson in the offseason, and replacing him with another big-bodied wide receiver is the first step toward beginning to replace Robinson's talent. Taking Bateman in this 2021 2-Round NFL Mock Draft does just that.

PFF - Renner (12/23)

16. Rashawn Slater, OT, Northwestern

Slater can play tackle, guard or center at the next level. With the way injuries have struck the Bears' offensive line of late, they may ask him to play all three. Slater allowed only five pressures in 2019 before opting out this past fall, and he didn't allow a single pressure over the final five games of his career.

Bleacher Report - Miller (12/22)

16. Elijah Moore, WR, Mississippi

Will the Bears bring back Mitchell Trubisky after he's looked solid in the last three weeks? Maybe, but only if a clear-cut better option is on the table. More likely is that the Bears will finally try to surround him with a supporting cast that can help them evaluate him in his final year under contract.
