2012 NFL Mock Draft: Bears Select OG Kevin Zeitler In Wes Bunting's Second Round Projections

New, 1 comment

The Chicago Bears hold the No. 50 overall pick in the second round of the 2012 NFL Draft, and with needs along the offensive line they will need to make savvy late-round picks to create quality depth heading into the 2012-13 season and beyond. Wes Bunting of the National Football Post created a two-round mock for the 2012 NFL Draft and he has Chicago taking Wisconsin Badgers Offensive Guard Kevin Zeitler at No. 50.

Here's what Bunting had to say about the Zeitler pick :

A tough, strong in-line guy who you can run behind and also has some coordination on the move. Not as effective in the pass game, but can mature into an average NFL pass blocker if he learns to get off the ball more consistently. Looks like a gritty type starter early on in his NFL career to me.

The former Badger guard is listed as the fifth-best prospect at his position by SB Nation's NFL Draft site, Mocking The Draft.
