With The Twenty-Ninth Pick Of The 2011 BRB Mock Draft, The Chicago Bears Select...

As mock GM of Da Bears, basement dweller shake n bake brings the pick.  As a tribute to Trev Alberts, he selects...

With the 29th pick in the 2011 NFL Draft the Chicago Bears select Derek Sherrod, OT, Mississippi State. The Bears QBs were sacked on about 1 in every 9 dropbacks, the highest rate in the league and at the same time averaged under 4 YPC on the ground. 2008 first round pick Chris Williams was flipped inside to guard in favor of 2009 starting LG Frank Omiyale so he's unlikely to be the answer there for the Bears.

The Bears could also look to DT where they cut ties with former Pro Bowler Tommie Harris, WR where they are a true #1 away from an excellent group of receivers or on the interior line which wasn't much better than the tackles.  Sherrod is the pick over Wilkerson, Heyward, Baldwin, Hankerson, Hudson and The Wiz on the basis of player value and the premium on protecting the blindside.  The king's ransom paid for Cutler will look terrible if they allow him to be smashed into a bloody pulp before the picks they gave up are even reaching their prime.

Especially with Phil Taylor off the board, this looks like a smashing pick to me.  What say you, BRB denizens?
