2016 NFL mock draft: Vernon Hargreaves drops out of the top 10 to Chicago

With the 11th pick in the 2016 Arrowhead Pride mock draft, Bears GM RatsOReily selects...

Florida CB Vernon Hargreaves

I'm amazed I could get such a steal with the 11th pick. On the boards I've consulted, he's been ranging from 5th -7th in the rankings. So IMO, he's a BPA, a great fit for positional need and has the positional value of a lock down CB.

Here's just a few descriptions of Hargreaves:

  • "Superb man coverage skills; best in the draft"
  • "Possesses lost art of downfield awareness; gets his head around and plays the football"

His biggest flaw is his size: 5'10 and 204 pounds. But when you match that with this information:"Experienced three year SEC starter; lived up to hype from day one" or "does not draw pass interference penalties" comments how can I not pick Hargreaves. The Bears bolstered their ILB core, in free agency, and can draft a pass rusher in the next couple of rounds. So a top 10 Rookie CB can sure help Da Bear's.
