TST Community Mock: Round 1, Pick 29

With the 29th pick in the TST Community Mock Draft, the Chicago Bears, represented by Rams_4_ever, select:

Derek Sherrod, OT, Mississippi State

Rams_4_ever gives his reasoning:

Why? seen last year’s season? Seen how close they came? Seen what happened? Damn right, they need protection for their QB, Jay Cutler, real badly. If they are not able to protect him and keep him from being sacked all the time, they are going to have a very tough challenge in reaching for that Super Bowl final once more. Sherrod is a monster at his position, very strong, very accurate, the perfect fit for the Bears’ offense. If he is still there at 29, you bet this is the pick!!

The Bears desperately need help on the offensive line. Unfortunately, the talent at that position is thin. Lucky for them, they are drafting very late in the game, so that really isn't a big deal for them. Solid pick, as Sherrod should be able to start contributing quick given the sad state of their O-Line.
