Bears Mock Draft [Cordy Glenn]
DT Amobi Okoye
LB David Hawthorne
1 OT Cordy Glenn [Georgia] 6’6” 345lbs.
The Bears have an OL of totally replaceable players and Glenn has the size, talent and versatility to play all over our line. Glenn has played LT, LG and RG for Georgia and has freakish athletic ability to go with his size. Glenn can come in and compete with Webb and if he is beaten out he will become a massive upgrade to Willams at LG. If Carimi’s knee has a setback then Glenn can move to RT. His versatility allows us to put the best players on the field. If the Bears are going to throw the ball downfield they need a player that can physically dominate the line of scrimmage.

2 DE Vinny Curry [Marshall] 6’3” 266lbs.
With the re-signing of Idonije the Bears can afford to wait a round and get a rotational pass rusher to add to the group. Curry might not have the athletic ability of Whitney Mercilus, but he also does not have the bust factor that comes with the rawer pass rushers. Curry has the pass rush moves, energy and the first step to be an instant upgrade to the pass rush and a player that can be counted on to get hustle pressures.
3 CB Casey Hayward [Vanderbilt] 5’11” 195lbs.
The Bears need CB depth that has the size to start and Hayward combine the physical skills to start with the ability to generate interceptions. Hayward has the balls skills that Lovie demands and does not shy away from contact. Hayward can come in and compete immediately with Tim Jennings and provide depth.
4. DE Jake Bequette [Arkansas] 6’5” 275lbs.
Rather than try and plug every single hole on the team the Bears draft another DE to fill the pass rush need. Bequette does not have athletic ability to jump off the tape, but he has a consistent pass rush and the length and speed to create pressure. Bequette has the pass rush ability to step in and contribute to the pass rush.
5. LB Danny Trevathan [Kentucky] 5’11” 238lbs.
The Bears need to add LB depth and while Trevathan may not have exceptional athletic ability, but he has the playmaking ability and the speed to be developed as the WLB of the future. Trevathan tackles everything that moves and can be developed as a long term replacement to Briggs.
6. WR Gerrell Robinson [Arizona St] 6’4” 225lbs.
The Bears have addressed the #1 WR position and they have added depth with Weems, but they need to continue to develop young players. Robinson has exceptional size and hands and provides the Bears with a big target to develop behind Brandon Marshall.
7. CB Robert Blanton [Notre Dame] 6’1” 195lbs.
The Bears again continue to add players to a position that needs bodies to develop. Blanton is limited athletically, but he has the size and tackling ability to contribute at CB or at FS.
