Chicago Bears could find strong offensive tackle class in 2013 NFL Draft

USA TODAY Sports

The Chicago Bears might be looking for an offensive tackle in the 2013 NFL Draft.

Five offensive linemen may potentially get drafted in the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft, according to Mel Kiper Jr. of ESPN.com, and the Chicago Bears are likely to be interested in one of them.

Bears Talk at CSNChicago.com is reporting that they would be surprised if Chicago doesn't take a tackle in either the first or second round of the draft this year.

Kiper projects that Luke Joeckel from Texas A&M may be the No. 1 overall pick in the draft and is definitely the top-rated lineman this season. Michigan's Taylor Lewan, Central Michigan's Eric Fisher, Jake Matthews of Texas A&M and Alabama's D.J. Fluker are the other linemen projected to go in the first round according to Kiper Jr.

Joeckel, Lewan and Fisher play on the left side of the line while Matthews and Fluker play on the right.

The Bears may take an offensive linemen in the first or second round unless Gabe Carimi and Jonathan Scott improve this season.
