McShay would pick Smith, Price for Bears


Georgia linebacker Roquan Smith

Todd McShay's latest mock draft isn't a mock draft at all.

Instead of projecting picks based on what he expects all 32 NFL teams to do, the ESPN analyst makes the selections himself based on what he believes is the best move for each team.

Given the opportunity to play Bears general manager, McShay would select Georgia inside linebacker Roquan Smith with the eighth pick in the first round and Ohio State center/guard Billy Price with the 39th choice in the second round.

"The Bears still need pieces on their defense and Smith provides a three-down, sideline-to-sideline linebacker," McShay wrote. "He's a plug-and-play starter who has excellent leadership.

"Price tore his left biceps at the combine (expected to be out four months), or else he'd go higher than this. He's a two-time team captain who set the Ohio State record for consecutive starts with 55. Chicago gets two solid players here."
