Top 5 Safeties The Chicago Bears Should Target In The Draft

4 of 5

4 — Deone Bucannon, Washington State

From a production standpoint, Bucannon is at the top of the safety class in this year’s draft, tallying an incredible 109 tackles and five interceptions in 2013.  He has great size for the position (6-1, 211) and above average speed (4.49).  Bucannon is at his best when he’s playing up in the box and can take on contact when making a play.  His coverage skills are a work in progress, but pairing him with Mundy would be ideal for the Bears.  He’s definitely not a first-round target for the team, but General Manager Phil Emery and company need to keep this kid on their radar starting in the second round and beyond.  He could easily be one of the gems of this year’s draft.
