Mock draft consensus for Bears: Ogletree, Eifert, Te’o
A survey of 200 NFL mock drafts reveals that the Bears are expected to select Georgia linebacker Alec Ogletree with the 20th pick of the first round.
Ogletree was the choice of 56 of the 200 mocks (28 percent), followed by Notre Dame tight end Tyler Eifert (29, 15.5 percent), Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te’o (26, 13 percent), Kansas State linebacker Arthur Brown (19, 9.5 percent) and Alabama offensive tackle D.J. Fluker (14, 7 percent).
A total of 26 players were listed as the Bears’ pick. Ten of the mock drafts had the Bears trading down to make their first pick: to No. 22, 23, 25 and 31.
For what it’s worth more of the prominent mock drafters have the Bears taking Te’o: Mike Mayock of NFL.com, Mel Kiper of ESPN, Gil Brandt of NFL Network and Ourlads.com. Charles Davis of NFL.com has the Bears taking Ogletree. Peter King of SI.com has them taking Eifert. The Sporting News has the Bears taking Missouri defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson.
