NFL Draft 2013: Day 2 Targets for the Chicago Bears

Phil Emery got his man with guard Kyle Long but there are still plenty of possibilities for the Chicago Bears on Day 2 of the 2013 NFL draft, which will have Rounds 2 and 3.  Here are some players to keep an eye on when the draft resumes on Day 2: 


Arthur Brown, Kansas State

Kevin Minter, LSU

Manti Te’o, Notre Dame

Jon Bostic, Florida

Kiko Alonso, Oregon


Jamar Taylor, Boise State

Johnthan Banks, Miss State

Tyrann Mathieu, LSU

Blidi Wreh-wilson, UConn

Defensive Tackle

Johnathan Jenkins, Georgia

Kawann Short, Purdue

Jesse Williams, Alabama

Johnathan Hankins, Ohio State

Defensive End

Margus Hunt, SMU

Tank Carradine, Florida State

Domantre Moore, Texas A&M

Alex Okafor, Texas

Wide Receivers

Justin Hunter, Tennessee

Robert Woods, USC

Marquise Goodwin, Texas

Ryan Swope, Texas A&M

Offensive Line

Brian Schwenke, C, Cal

Menelik Watson, OT, Florida State

Terron Armsted, OT, Arkansas Pine Bluff

Barrett Jones, C, Alabama

Tight End

Zach Ertz, Stanford

Gavin Escobar, San Diego State

Travis Kelce, Cincinnati

Vance McDonald, Rice

The Bears still have needs on both sides of the ball.  If it were me, I would make sure to grab one of those linebackers, especially if Arthur Brown is around, in Round 2.  I’d love to see the Bears find a way to trade back and get a third round pick to use on a center like Barrett Jones who could sit for a season behind Garza and get healthy to step in and play in 2014.  Without a 3rd rounder going into the day, they might have to hope a speed wide receiver like Swopes falls into Day 3 in the 4th round.

What do you think?  If the Bears only have one pick on Day 2, which position should they target?  Is there a certain player they should grab?  Let’s see your suggestions for Phil Emery.
