CDTShareTweetShareShareChicago Bears 7 Round mock draft: Running back only as UDFA versionPhoto by Bob Levey/Getty ImagesThis will be my final mock draft before the real deal kicks off on Thursday night. For me, mocks are a way to learn about different prospects and a way to simulate various scenarios, so this time I’m skipping the running back position for the Chicago Bears. I’ll say it again for the skimmers... I am purposefully not drafting a running back in this mock.I do think the Bears will take a back at some point Nick Kwiatkoski Color Rush Jersey , but with teams finding success in the undrafted free agent market, I wanted to simulate an entire draft to see what kind of talent would be still looking for a home. I used the The Draft Network’s simulator and their draft board for my picks.For this mock I went with a loose best player available policy, with my only firm rule being to leave all the tailbacks alone. First I’ll run through my five mock picks for the Bears, then I’ll share the list of UDFA RBs that the Bears could choose from. And as a bonus, I enlisted the help of EJ Snyder and Jacob Infante to give their takes on the after-mock options.In Lester’s latest T Formation Conversation podcast, he’s joined by Jacob Infante, and they get us ready for the NFL Draft talking about some realistic prospects the Bears could be targeting.Third Round - Pick 87: Amani Hooker, S, IowaJacob has me convinced after talking to him on my T Formation Conversation podcast (click here to listen!) that if Hooker is available, he’s the no-brainer pick here for Chicago. Fourth Round - Pick 126: Daylon Mack, NT, Texas A&MInterior defensive line is a position I haven’t mocked to the Bears at all, nor have I seen anyone else mocking to them, but his name was sitting near the top of mt board and I figured why not get a true back-up nose tackle to spell Eddie Goldman. Mack has the size and power (6’1”, 336 lbs) to anchor the middle of the run defense as a 2-gap plugger.Fifth Round - Pick 162: Corey Ballentine, CB, WashburnSome competition at corner is a must in this draft, and the athletic Ballentine had a nice week at the Senior Bowl. Ryan Pace seems to always snag a small school guy, so this could be one to watch for.Seventh Round - Pick 222: Carl Granderson, EDGE, WyomingGranderson isn’t my favorite OLB prospect, but he could help on special teams while honing his pass rush skill set. Seventh Round - Pick 238: Paul Adams, OT, MissouriEven though he played tackle in college, he doesn’t seem to have tackle feet. Adams would likely be a developmental prospect at guard.Now for the fun part of this mock draft, check out the slew of running backs that would be waiting for a call.This is the order that The Draft Network had them ranked when the mock ended.Travis Homer, RB, MiamiJames Williams, RB, Washington State *Qadree Ollison Prince Amukamara Jersey , RB, PittsburghTony Pollard, RB, Memphis *Ty Johnson, RB, MarylandL.J. Scott, RB, Michigan State *Alec Ingold, RB, Wisconsin *Jordan Ellis, RB, Virginia *Darrin Hall, RB, PittsburghWes Hills, RB, Slippery RockNick Brossette, RB, LSU *Alex Barnes, RB, Kansas StateJalin Moore, RB, Appalachian State *Aeris Williams, RB, Mississippi State *Squally Canada, RB, BYU *Marquis Young, RB, UMASSMatt Colburn II, RB, Wake ForestTony Brooks-James , RB, OregonDamarea Crockett, RB, Missouri *Jacques Patrick, RB, Florida StateChandler Cox, RB, AuburnTaiwan Deal, RB, Wisconsin *Kerrith Whyte Jr., RB, FAUPatrick Laird, RB, CalTravon McMillian, RB, Colorado *D’Andre Ferby, RB, Western KentuckyJoshuwa Holloman, RB, Eastern MichiganThere’s an asterisk next to these potential UDFA’s that the Bears were reported to have met with or attended their Pro Day.I asked EJ for some thoughts on this UDFA RB class, and here’s what he said. “First impression: this list is pretty picked over. I bet there was a serious run on backs in the late rounds to clean house like this.” He named these three as his top UDFA picks. Can you tell EJ loves watching running back tape?Jacob gave me two names he’d like as UDFAs for the Bears.I’ll give you guys one more guy to keep an eye on and that’s because he might be the fastest back in the class. Injuries hurt Ty Johnson’s stock a bit in 2018, but he still averaged 7.7 yards per carry in 9 games, and he had a good week of practice at the East-West Shrine game. He wasn’t used much as a receiver at Maryland, and a tweaked hamstring prevented him from going through positional drills at his pro day, but he has NFL explosiveness.What are your thoughts of the mock, and on this group of UDFA running backs?
