NFL Mock Draft 2012: Bears Could End Up With Offensive Lineman

The Chicago Bears addressed their need at wide receiver by reuniting Brandon Marshall with Jay Cutler, and as such they are likely out of the running for first round wide receivers like Michael Floyd, Kendall Wright or Mohamed Sanu. So, where do they turn next? According to SB Nation's Ryan Van Bibber in his most recent 2012 mock draft, either to the pass rush or the offensive line, with the latter most likely.

Van Bibber projects the Bears to select Georgia Bulldogs offensive linemen Cordy Glenn, who is expected to play guard as well as right tackle in the NFL. There is more first round caliber offensive linemen in this year's draft than pass rushers, but if the Bears did want to improve their defense, they may look at Illinois Fighting Illini DE Whitney Mercilus or USC Trojans DE Nick Perry.
