16. Worst – Braxton Jones
Most analysts expected the Bears to follow in the Jets’ footsteps and help their quarterback. Instead, they went in the opposite direction and focused on defense. They finally selected an offensive tackle in the fifth round when they opted for Jones (via Chicago Tribune).
Jones describes himself as very coachable but he’s also raw. He was decent for the Thunderbirds but it doesn’t appear as though he’s an NFL starter now. But the Bears require a ready-made talent and not somebody for the future. Their conservative picks may work against them.
