In this 2012 NFL mock draft, each SB Nation NFL community was tasked with making the selection for his or her franchise. Chicago Bears blog Windy City Gridiron chose to go with Notre Dame wide receiver Michael Floyd in the first round; the chance to improve the receiving corps and complement Brandon Marshall proved too enticing to pass on for WCG:
Just imagine... 2011: Devin Hester (5'11, 190), Johnny Knox (6'0, 190), Earl Bennett (6'0, 200). And then 2012: Brandon Marshall (6'4, 230), Michael Floyd (6'3, 225). Sure, the Chicago Bears offensive line still needs some significant work, but seeing a WR like Floyd fall in their lap in the first round would be too much to pass up.
