Chicago Bears 2021 NFL Mock Draft Roundup 2.0

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:

Rotoworld - Thor Nystrom (8/21)

16. Caleb Farley, CB, Virginia Tech

Farley is one of the most decorated corners eligible for the 2021 NFL Draft, leading the ACC with 16 passes defended last year to go with four interceptions. He's also a sick athlete. Checking in at No. 11 on Bruce Feldman's summer "Freaks” list, the 6-foot-2, 207-pounder registered a mind-bending 24.16 mph on his GPS tracker against Notre Dame last year that puts him in the Tyreek Hill/Henry Ruggs top-end speed supergroup.

PFF - Mike Renner (8/19)

16. Wyatt Davis, IOL, Ohio State

The Bears still haven't properly addressed Kyle Long's departure on the interior of the offensive line. While this may seem high for a guard, Davis was that good for the Buckeyes last season -- he didn't allow a single sack or hit all year.

The Draft Network - Kyle Crabbs (8/19)

15. Devonta Smith, WR, Alabama

Stud receiver Allen Robinson is in a contract year, but even if the team brings back Robinson into 2021 and beyond, the team needs more pass-catching options to help bolster the pass game. WR Anthony Miller is promising but durability is something of a concern -- and the Bears' third best option is either Cordarrelle Patterson or Ted Ginn. Let's get up upgrade for whoever is playing quarterback.

2020 NFL Power Rankings: Chicago Bears

Throughout the 2020 NFL season, we will compile a consensus NFL Power Rankings that averages the rankings of all 32 NFL teams.

Here is where the Chicago Bears rank in terms of average, best and worst in our consensus Week 1 NFL Power Rankings:

Below you will find a Week 1 roundup for the Bears in our consensus 2020 NFL Power Rankings.

The Athletic -- Rank: 22

If the Bears feel that Mitch Trubisky gives them the best chance to win, then their decision is fine. If they chose him as the starter because it's easier to go from Trubisky to Nick Foles than from Foles to Trubisky, then you have to wonder about their process -- especially considering that Foles has never been a great practice player. The Bears could have a top-five defense, but they need the quarterback play to be somewhere around mediocre to get back to the postseason. Right now, that seems unlikely.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 26

So Mitch Trubisky will be the starter in a make-or-break season for him, general manager Ryan Pace and coach Matt Nagy. There is talent on defense, but this will be all about the offense.

Chicago Bears Fantasy Football Projections

Not only do we have fantasy football projections by positions, we have team-by-team fantasy projections as well.

Here are our projections for the Chicago Bears running backs for the 2020 NFL season:

PlayerAtt.YardsTDRec.YardsTDPoints
David Montgomery207.6861.55.1929.4223.40.96145.39
Earlier this offseason, GM Ryan Pace talked about Montomgery's ability to "carry a heavier load" if the team runs more often in 2020. While the former Cyclone averaged only 3.7 YPC, he finished his rookie campaign with 242 carries and 25 receptions. Dealing with a groin injury, however, Montgomery is "expected to be out 2-4 weeks," which puts his availability for the season opener in question.
Tarik Cohen77.1312.31.5461.4466.62.76103.69
The Human Joystick set career lows in efficiency (3.3 YPC and 5.8 Y/R), but he set career highs in both targets (104) and receptions (79). Given his role in the passing game, Cohen is a much better option in (full) PPR formats as he's finished no worse than RB30 in PPR scoring -- 27th in 2019, 11th in 2018 and 30th in 2017 -- over his three NFL seasons.
Ryan Nall16.865.50.341.17.90.029.5
