The Chicago Bears 2019 NFL mock draft focus continues to narrow towards what the team is always aiming for. Taking the best players available.

The recent signing of Aaron Lynch eases another of their biggest concerns with the depth at outside linebacker. With April at hand, nobody can say the Bears have any glaring issues on their roster. Every starting position is filled with at least a decent player. The job in this draft will be trying to secure as much talent as possible, hopefully improving their depth at key positions along the way.  So how does the board fall this time?

3rd Round

Kaleb McGary

OT, Washington

The Bears offensive line is situated nicely for 2019 with every starter from last season back. However, there’s a chance that could change in the near future. One name who could be in trouble is Kyle Long. Age and injury are catching up to him, and his contract is becoming an issue. There is a possibility they move on after this year. It would be wise then to have a succession plan in place.

Kaleb McGary has been a rock solid tackle at Washington since he got to college. However, he doesn’t quite have the athleticism to stay out there. Most project him inside to guard where his significant power and nastiness can be used to maximum effect. He is mentally and physically tough and doesn’t back down from anybody. Teams need guys like that up front.
