2013 NFL Mock Draft 2.0: Predicting Picks 11-21

11 of 12

Sep 8, 2012; Winston Salem, NC, USA North Carolina Tar Heels guard Jonathan Cooper (64) lines up in the game against the Wake Forest Demon Deacons at BB

20. Chicago Bears-Jonathan Cooper, OG, North Carolina

The Chicago Bears aren’t known for having the best offensive line. However, they have made some improvements to the line.

After signing Jermon Bushrod and re-signing Jonathan Scott, the Bears have shored up almost all of their holes on the line. But if Jonathan Cooper is here, he would be a perfect fit. D.J. Fluker is listed at 355 pounds and may be more talented, but the Bears need an interior lineman, and Cooper is an interior line, and a talented one too.

Cooper could land in the top 10 and if he’s here, the Bears will have to pounce. Chicago’s defense ranked fifth in total defense and first in turnovers forced, and while getting a middle linebacker to replace Brian Urlacher would help, it’s very unlikely that Chicago takes a middle linebacker over an offensive lineman. If Ogletree is off the board, Chicago will definitely take a lineman, which has to be Cooper.

Chicago allowed 44 sacks in 2012, and Cooper allowed none.
