The Chicago Bears use the No. 67 overall pick in the Midseason Mock Draft to select Tyler Guyton, OT Oklahoma.
Guyton has a unique size, and bulk helps him in the run game. He demonstrates short-area quickness, allowing him to make it to the second level and make defenders take inefficient angles. He is also able to pull and crack opponents. His grip strength and footwork are impressive, enabling him to maintain and generate push. His upper body strength allows him to generate torque. He is dedicated to sticking with his guy until the whistle blows. During passing downs, he was often trusted to play on an island, showcasing good knee bend and width in his base and actively firing his hands to protect against power.
Bears adding solid starting O-line help is imperative, and they got a steal in Guyton at 67.
Back-to-back picks for the Bears have them taking Byron Murphy, DT Texas, with the No.68.
Murphy is one of the best DTs in the Draft, playing with leverage at the line of attack regardless of inside or outside. When positioned inside, he keeps focus on the backfield and uses his hands to shift the linemen to either side. Murphy also provides a secondary interior pass rush, obtaining the most pressure in the three-technique position.
His punch is strong, and he uses his hands to shed blocks and make plays, whether in the hole or outside the box. His lower body strength gives him the power to anchor inside. He quickly locates the ball, and his motor is outstanding, enabling him to make plays against the run.
Bears draft for need and devise a solid solution to fortify their interior defensive line.
