Are there any Day 2/Day 3 quarterbacks you see possibly becoming future starters? Before the season, people said Jayden Daniels, and I've seen some say Spencer Rattler?

— @DanFinchy3

Sikkema: “I could name you J.J. McCarthyQuinn Ewers … and people might say to me, ‘No! Those guys are going first round.' … I could see them being early second-round quarterbacks that could eventually be starters.”

“I like Michael Pratt, as well, from Tulane. … First game of the season, he looked like the second coming of Tom Brady, looked incredible, ends up hurting his knee in that game, comes back from injury and doesn't really look like the same guy. … He is somebody who I think has really good arm talent. I think the anticipation and the ball placement can be really good for him when he's ‘on.'”

“I think probably the true answer is Spencer Rattler. I think Spencer Rattler has become so much better of a quarterback over the last two years than people are willing to give him credit for.”


Can you break down the top three wide receivers and talk about where Malik Nabers and Rome Odunze fit among recent prospects and how close they are to Marvin Harrison Jr.? Some talk the Bears shouldn’t risk passing on Harrison and should take him at No. 1, but that’s passing on a lot of picks in a trade!

— @CubsTulane

Sikkema: “I'm still not in the camp where I would take Marvin Harrison Jr. No. 1 even if I have [him] No. 1 on my big board.”

“I like Malik Nabers a ton. The way this dude moves is just so different. He kind of reminds me a little bit of how Antonio Brown used to just move at a different speed. … When you watch Malik Nabers over the last two years, but specifically this past year, he already has a diverse set of releases that he knows how to deploy against press coverage, which allows him to win and get vertical and get even and separate immediately off the line.”

Rome Odunze, I like a lot. He feels like a bigger, super-sized Chris Olave. And Olave is just a very fluid, explosive, vertical threat type of a dude but also gives you some nice route running. Rome Odunze is doing those things at 6-foot-3 and 215 pounds.”

“Rome is a top-20 receiver, likely more of a top-15 receiver, if we're being honest. I think Malik Nabers is a top-10 receiver. And then I think Marvin Harrison Jr. is a top-three receiver.”

Who are the tweener players you like but are difficult to rank in this class? Big slots, smaller edge defenders, etc.

— @TheeSkill

Sikkema: “I mentioned [Brock] Bowers kinda being one of them. He is a tight end by label, but he's a lot smaller if you compare him as a tight end. If you compare him as a wide receiver, he's a bigger wide receiver.”

“Another one I would bring to the table is Ruke Orhorhoro, the defensive tackle for Clemson. He is 6-foot-4 and 290 pounds and plays a lot inside, but he's kind of this tweener like, ‘what is he here?' They use him all over.”

“The other guys I would [mention] are three offensive linemen who are some of my favorite offensive linemen in this class: Taliese Fuaga, the offensive tackle from Oregon State, Graham Barton, the offensive tackle from Duke, and Troy Fautanu, the offensive tackle from Washington. … I think all of them might end up being interior offensive linemen in the NFL. I think Fuaga has got the best chance to be a tackle.”


Where do you expect the Bears to end up drafting with their pick? There’s a solid chance their second pick is outside of the top 10.

— @Pabich4444jack

Sikkema: “I think they're going to go either 1-3 or 2-2 [over their last four games]. I think they're winning at least one more game, and they could end up winning two more games. … I think the most realistic spot for Chicago is somewhere between Pick 7-10. They have one of the lowest [remaining] strength of schedules in the NFL.”


How real do you think the prospect of Marvin Harrison Jr. going back to college is, with the rumors of massive NIL money in the $20-25 million range?

— @danolan7

Sikkema: “I don't think there is any chance that that happens. I have heard these reports — I'd be so shocked if they were real. NIL money is already kind of out of control … but for you to give a wide receiver $20 million to $25 million to play college football for you is pretty wild.”

“The only reason why Marvin Harrison Jr. should come back at that point is to win a national championship, and I don't think Ohio State is poised to win a national championship next year.”
