2013 NFL Mock Draft: Bears could address big O-line need

The Chicago Bears might be looking to address their most glaring need in the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft: the offensive line.

USA TODAY Sports

The Chicago Bears will be picking in the bottom half of the 2013 NFL Draft, but they'll be just outside the league's playoff teams, as they failed to make the cut when the Minnesota Vikings took the Wild Card spot from them in Week 17. Instead, they're slotted in at No. 20, picking very late, which is bad for a team that finished off their season with a 3-5 mark after starting 7-1.

SB Nation released their latest 2013 mock draft on Monday, and they have the Bears addressing a need on their offensive line, taking Texas A&M offensive tackle Jake Matthews.

They suggest that Matthews could move over to the left side in the NFL, but even if not, he would still likely get the nod on the right side. Chicago's offensive line is a mess, and was clearly the weakest aspect of their team in 2013. If not for the Arizona Cardinals, the Bears' offensive line would surely have been named the worst in the NFL.
