A Bears fan who just wants to see an exciting draft, but also looked at team needs while also predicting free agency. With some trades as well. 3 rounds.

The Browns need to make sure they get this guy. They cant afford to test the Giants or Colts both teams with RB needs. There is no problem with taking the best overall player in the draft number 1. No matter what position he is.
I mentioned it in my last mock. Josh Rosen will fit perfectly in the NY media and will back up Eli in his final year creating a very attractive future for The New York Football Giants.
I originally had Saquon here but obviously he is no longer available, so just like every other mock, The Colts snag Chubb and bolster their defense two years in a row.
Assuming the Browns don't trade out of 4. (They probably shouldn't) They need to put an end to that jersey of washed up QB's to rest! Sam Darnold, despite a very unconvincing year had a good enough Sophomore season and threw enough 4th quarter touchdowns to get taken top 5.
Broncos trade out because they most likely land Kirk Cousins. Raiders trade up because Jon Gruden is gonna need his defense to be gruesome and dangerous. With Mack rushing the QB and Minkah's ball-hawking abilities could prove to be a dangerous combination.
The Jets were hoping to have Darnold or Rosen fall to them, And some people may disagree but Rudolph is the 3rd best QB available, and in time he will prove to good enough to be taken by the jets and end this QB mayhem.
Buccaneers at 7 could go so many different ways. But drafting the most athletic DB in the draft is the smartest thing to do. Most people dont see him as a top 10 talent, but he was a pre-season top 3 pick for a reason. It was a down year for the entire FSU roster but he was still their best player.
WR, EDGE, CB, ILB all needs for the Bears. But they drafted a QB no.2 overall last year in Trubisky. He needs to be protected. The Bears will likely address WR in free agency and returning players like Cam Merideth and Kevin White will help as well. Nelson is the best OL in the draft too good to pass up.
Garropolo seems to be pretty good so far. Calvin Ridley the best WR in the class would be an instant fit for Shanahan's offense and could be an instant star for the fast up and coming 49ers.
Boles last year Williams this year Cousins at the helm. With the tlent they have on both sides of the ball could make for a very fast comeback to the playoffs next year. Williams who is the fastest tackle in the draft and the size would be the perfect RT to run behind.
Yes I know Tannehill is still on the team, but he really doesn't fit Gase's scheme. Jay Cutler under Gase in Chicago had the most productive year in his career. That being said Josh Allen has a lot of the same type of talent Cutler has, just in a younger more enthusiastic body.
Bengals retaining Lewis again proves this franchise plans on going nowhere for a long time. So at this point they will just draft best available after Ross was a bust last year so far, they wont go WR again and instead draft an explosive inside LB.
Acquiring Alex Smith was a questionable move for the Redskins, but in that trade they lost a starting corner in Kendall Fuller, so replacing him is the most important thing to do right now to maintain mediocrity.
Rodgers coming back, expect this team to be in the playoffs again. Davenport can replace the hole that Julius Peppers left when they let him walk.
Carson Palmer gone, stuck with an old team, gotta grab a player intriguing enough to keep Fitz around for another year. There is no player more intriguing than Baker Mayfield, coming off his Heisman winning season Mayfield could bring this team right back to the top of this division.
A team in need of an identity with needs all over the place. Giving Flacco a big target who could mimic a player like during their Super Bowl season could make this team relevant again.
