Let's just say I know for a fact that the Bears GM had his heart set on DT Aaron Donald, who fell off the board just one pick ago to the Rams. Heartbreaker.
But that's why you build your board. You prepare for any scenario the best you can. If you follow the Best Player Available philosophy, and you have your board set, the draft is really simple.
As far as Chicago goes, their top need isn't just in the interior of the defensive line. One could argue safety is a high need as well. With that in mind...
With the 14th pick in the 2014 MHR Community Mock Draft, the Chicago Bears select...
S Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, S, AlabamaWrites rstabeau, "After not landing Donald, we would ideally like to trade back, but we will skip over DT and go to our next biggest need at Safety. Clinton-Dix has the best center fielder skills in draft and will be a starter from day one. Playing against two qbs twice a year in Stafford and Rodgers who like to air it out, makes it imperative that the bears upgrade their secondary to go along with their much improved pass rush. We have the offense to win a Super Bowl, so getting a player on defense who would make an immediate impact will be huge for us."
