Chicago Bears 2013 NFL Mock Draft, Week 4: 7 Rounds
Chicago Bears 2013 Mock Draft: 7 Rounds
The Chicago Bears are hoping to give the city of Chicago another thing to be proud of. It's been over 20 years since the Monsters of the Midway have won a Super Bowl and since the famed game came to be in 1965, the Bears have won just that one.
There's no doubt that players and fans alike are hungry to end that drought, take their winning to the next level and take home the Lombardi Trophy.
Chicago loves its football, and the Bears are the perfect example of that. Whether the team has a playoff run or a six-win season, the fans are always there to support them. Soldier Field is packed each week to show this team that there is nothing they want more than to win and make sure their team knows that they are appreciated.
Going into the 2013 NFL Draft in the next couple of weeks, the Bears are looking to add many things to their rebuilding squad. They are by no means a bottom-dweller in the NFC North, nor are they a team that is content with finishing second or third, but they must add a few vital pieces before making a deep run.
With the recent departure of Brian Urlacher, the Bears are looking for some serious help at the linebacker position. They have the opportunity with the No. 20 pick in the draft to take a guy that could start right away and eventually turn into the future man in the middle for the franchise.
While linebacker isn't the only necessary position that looks to be filled before next season, the Bears will have much to think about by the end of April.
Here's my fourth edition of the Chicago Bears' 2013 Mock Draft.
First Round: Arthur Brown, LB, Kansas State
In my previous edition of the Chicago Bears' Mock Draft, I had them taking Arthur Brown with the No. 20 overall pick in the draft. This edition is no different as the talented linebacker from Kansas State will be the best linebacker available at their pick. He is one of the top at his position in the class and has drawn some comparisons to Urlacher. He would be a perfect fit in the middle of the defense.
Second Round: Larry Warford, OG, Kentucky
The Bears' interior offensive line has some glaring holes, and the need for a guard to provide some depth at the position is huge. Larry Warford is a big-bodied guy that played in the rough and tough SEC that could be just what this team needs. The offensive line is the most important part of the offense, and Warford will help them out mightily.
Fourth Round: Cobi Hamilton, WR, Arkansas
Cobi Hamilton isn't the fastest guy on the field, nor is he the tallest receiver, but he can provide some much-needed depth at the wide out position. He stands about 6-foot-1 and runs a 4.57 40-yard dash, making him an average receiver in both regards. However, he can produce with the best of them, catching 90 passes for 1,335 yards and five touchdowns in his senior season at Arkansas. He's not lightning-fast, but the guy has great hands.
Fifth Round: A.J. Klein, LB, Iowa State
As noted before, the Bears need serious help at linebacker. Iowa State's A.J. Klein could be a great fit for the Bears' needs. He is a tackling machine, recording more than 10 tackles five times in 2012 and racking up as many as 19 in one game. He has solid size for a linebacker height-wise, but a little more weight and he could be a solid starting linebacker in the NFL.
Sixth Round: Sanders Commings, CB, Georgia
This seems to be a popular pick for the Bears final pick in the 2013 Draft, but Sanders Commings would be a choice for a late-round pick. He could be a diamond in the rough while not being too high of a pick for the Bears to waste. You can never be too deep at cornerback, and the former Georgia defensive back would be a solid help down the road.
