In his first two NFL mock drafts, Rotoworld's Josh Norris had the Bears selecting North Carolina quarterback Mitch Trubisky.
Following the NFL Combine and the first week of free agency - in which the Bears signed quarterback Mike Glennon - Norris posted his latest mock draft on Sunday. And he's got the Bears addressing the defensive line this time around.
3. Chicago Bears - EDGE/DL Solomon Thomas, Stanford - Thomas is a really, really, really good football player. He can rush from the edge or possibly work inside. The Bears’ older pass rushers are nearing the end of their contracts, or at least the guarantees. I would not be shocked to see a tackle, although many would scream against the value. Piling resources into the offensive line for a new quarterback can work.
Thomas, the 6-foot-3, 275-pound defensive lineman, is the same player CSN's Scott Krinch had the Bears selecting in his first mock draft posted last month.
Thomas said at the Combine that he's versatile enough to play in multiple schemes, and he'd certainly fit in what Vic Fangio is trying to do in bolstering the Bears' front seven.
Solomon Thomas doesn't care which defensive front he plays in at the next level. 4-3 or 3-4 he says he can play anywhere. pic.twitter.com/tg0Tuzev9u— Scott Krinch (@scottiekrinch) March 4, 2017
