When the 2014 draft arrived, the Chicago Bears had a chance to get a first-round pick that would have taken them to the No. 1 pick.
Instead, the Bears chose a defensive lineman from the University of Tennessee who had been suspended for two years by the NFL.
In doing so, they got a player who had played on a team that had a Super Bowl title in 2014.
That’s how the draft went down.
The Bears had the chance to grab one of the top prospects in the draft.
But they chose instead to take the next best option in this class, a defensive end from Arkansas who would be the best player in this draft.
This is where the story really begins.
The first two picks were taken in the first round and the third pick went to the Jacksonville Jaguars, which took Alabama defensive end Taco Charlton.
The Jaguars have had some struggles with the draft in the past, but they were able to land one of their own.
The Jaguars drafted Clemson defensive tackle D.J. Fluker.
He played a little bit at Clemson and he was a tremendous player for them.
And he’s the best defensive tackle in the country.
The fact that he came from an SEC school was an impressive feat for them and it was a big win for the program.
But the Jaguars took a gamble when they selected Flukers.
They took him because of the fact that the Jaguars had a big need at defensive tackle.
But the Jacksonville team that they picked was in a rebuilding phase.
They were looking for a new offensive coordinator, and Flukos talent at that position was not as good as it was in Clemson.
And then they selected Michigan defensive tackle Sheldon Rankins, a player the team was looking for.
Rankins had the talent to be a good player, but he was not going to be able to perform as a starter in the NFL because of his age.
So they took a chance on Rankins.
Now the question is, did they get a steal in the seventh round or did they take a gamble on a player that is a great player but not quite as good at the position as he is?
Let’s take a look.
