The Bears will likely select offensive lineman or defensive line with their first pick at # 29. Sports Illustrated writer Don Banks thinks the Bears will choose a wide receiver with their first round selection.
With that pick, Banks thinks they will pick WR Jonathan Baldwin out of the University of Pittsburgh. I think OL, DL, and CB are needs for the Bears in this draft. WR is more of a want, but a big wide receiver like Baldwin brought into the mix wouldn’t hurt at all.
Here’s what Banks had to say about the Bears potential pick at #29:
“Unless the Bears are confident they’re going to address their need for a big receiver in free agency — if it even unfolds this offseason — the first round of the draft might be their best chance to fill that void. Baldwin is on the bubble between a first- and second-round grade, but he’s big, fast and knows how to come down with the football in traffic.”
