The Chicago Bears were sitting at eighth overall and chose to select Georgia LB Raquon Smith. Smith was widely accepted as an excellent choice for Chicago and he is expected to come in and start from day one.

Who could the Bears select with their second round pick? Let’s take a closer look at five possible selections.
