2016 Cincy Jungle Community NFL Mock Draft: Chicago Bears select...

New, comment

How much would an impactful linebacker help the Bears? NastyNati513 believes it would be the best selection for the Bears in the first round of the NFL Draft.

With the 11th pick in the 2016 Cincy Jungle Community NFL mock draft, Chicago bears GM, NastyNati513 selects...

Leonard Floyd, LB, Georgia

The Bears need impact players on the defensive side of the ball, and Floyd will almost certainly bring that impact.  His ability to get to the quarterback should give the Bears a spark and take pressure off of a questionable secondary.

Floyd might struggle a bit against the run, but the bears retooled the middle of their defense in free agency.  That should give him the freedom to just do what he does best.

While Chicago still needs some help on both lines and in the secondary (Hargreaves III would be the best case scenario) no one else still available can provide the value Floyd would to this roster.
