Mock draft season is in full swing, so we'll get analysts from all over predicting what players NFL teams are going to select in the 2018 NFL Draft. They change almost every week, and are rarely correct, but they're still fun!
Mel Kiper Jr. released his latest mock draft, and he has the Chicago Bears taking one of the top linebackers available.

Tremaine Edmunds is an absolute beast. Widely rated as the top linebacker of the 2018 class, Edmunds was an All-American for Virgina Tech last season.
Watched tape on Tremaine Edmunds (VA Tech). 6-foot-5, 240. Rare size & athleticism at LB. He can move. Puts a good hit on Clemson QB Kelly Bryant here. pic.twitter.com/6XMI0S9c84— Matt Bowen (@MattBowen41) February 19, 2018
Seeing as the Bears recently cut troubled linebacker Jerrell Freeman, there is an opening for the former Hokie in their defense. Chicago ranked 11th in rush defense last season, so adding a versatile linebacker with the ability of Edmunds can certainly help get them into the top 10.
The Bears have some really good, young pieces in place for their future, and adding Tremaine Edmunds would only get Bears' fans more excited about the future of the franchise.
