4 — Aaron Donald, Pittsburgh

Donald is easily one of the most polished and successful defensive tackles in this year’s draft.  He’s undersized compared to his fellow draftees (6-1, 288) but what he lacks in size he makes up for with his leadership, experience and tenacity.  His smaller frame and quick first step make it difficult for offensive linemen to push him off the ball.  Donald would be the perfect replacement for Melton in the Bears’ defense and could still be on the board early in the second round.  He’s a no-brainer should he fall to them in the second, but they may even consider trading up for him should they choose a different position in the first.
