Round 4

Khaseem Greene, LB, Rutgers

Need: As we discussed before, the Bears need some young linebackers and impact players, especially on defense.

Value: A lot of draftniks had Greene with a 2nd or 3rd round grades on Greene, who was an impact player.  He created a ton of turnovers and has all the tools to step in and immediately compete for a starting job.

Passed On: They missed out on centers Brian Schwenke and Barrett Jones who were drafted a few spots ahead, while quarterback Matt Barkley was also taken earlier in the round. Not that running back is a big need, but highly touted RB’s Jonathan Franklin and Marcus Lattimore went later in the round.  In the skills position area, they also passed on WR prosepct Kenny Stills.

Grade: A-

Round 5

Jordan Miller, OT, Louisiana Tech

Need: The Bears clearly needed to add some talent on the O-line and continued to stockpile players in that area.

Value: The Bears traded down 10 spots to pick up a 7th round choice. Mills was deemed a Top 100 pick, so getting him at #163 offers good value.

Passed On: Chose to pass on Texas A&M WR Ryan Swope, another slot WR prospect.

Grade: B
