No consensus on Bears first draft pick

Four mock drafts on NFL.com all have the Bears selecting a different player with the 11th pick in the first round.

Chad Reuter predicts that the Bears will choose UCLA outside linebacker Myles Jack, writing: "The Bears can play the athletic and tough-minded Jack in any spot in their linebacking corps."

Jack is a versatile, athletic and fast former running back who declared for the draft despite suffering a season-ending knee injury in 2015 in the third game of his junior year.

Lance Zierlein thinks that the Bears will pick Alabama defensive tackle A'Shawn Robinson, writing: "Vic Fangio benefited from a physical, tone-setting defensive front in San Francisco. Robinson gets Chicago a step closer to that type of defensive line."

Robinson was a consensus All-American and finalist for the Outland Trophy last season when he recorded 46 tackles, 7.5 tackles-for-loss and 3.5 sacks in helping Alabama win the national championship.

Bucky Brooks believes that the Bears will draft Alabama inside linebacker Reggie Ragland, writing: "The Bears are missing a disruptive force in the middle of their defense. Ragland is an instinctive sideline to sideline tackling machine with a knack for finding the ball."

Ragland was named SEC Defensive Player of the Year in 2015 when he led Alabama with 97 tackles and also registered 6.5 tackles-for-loss and six pass breakups.

Daniel Jeremiah predicts that the Bears will select Florida cornerback Vernon Hargreaves, writing: "The Bears need to address several holes on defense, and Hargreaves has the ability to play outside and in the nickel."

Explosive, athletic and ultra-competitive, Hargreaves was named first-team All-SEC in each of his three seasons with the Gators. He also earned All-American honors in 2014 when he had three interceptions and in 2015 when he had four picks.
