That was a pretty crazy first round. Two players widely graded as top five overall talents, OT Laremy Tunsil and Myles Jack, both dropped much farther than anyone expected.

Tunsil has been my top position player all draft season and I thought it was close to a lock that he would go to the Chargers with the third overall pick. He already had some off-field red flags before yesterday, but after this pic, Tunsil ended up dropping from three all the way to the Dolphins at 13.

Myles Jack might have had a the worst day of anyone in the green room, dropping from his projected spot in the top ten to out of the first round completely. Like Tunsil, Jack made some bad moves this week, mainly an interview where he made his knee injury sound really serious. Even with his injury risk, I am still surprised that Jack dropped that far. I’ll have more on Jack later in the post.

As for the Bears, their next pick is 41st overall which is the tenth pick in the second round. There are about 15 players still available that I really like for the Bears in round two. Since the Bears pick 10th, I will breakdown my top ten options in order of preference.

Bears Round Two Targets:

LB Myles Jack, UCLA – If there were no concerns about Jack’s knee, he probably would have been a top five pick. When healthy he’s an amazing athlete who can be a sideline-to-sideline run stopper, cover anyone he’s asked to, rush the passer, and even play running back if needed.

I obviously haven’t seen the medical reports and clearly they are troubling for Jack to drop this far. It’s a risky pick, but if Bear doctors think there is a good chance that Jack could stay healthy through his rookie deal, his upside may be worth a pick in the second round.
