Many Chicago Bears fans will be disappointed that another first-round pick is gone without the offensive line being addressed. However, this may be a gift, but PFF not only gave us Eichenberg but the debate between him and Jaylen Mayfield.

If both have a chance to be there at 52, it makes taking a swing in round one worthwhile. Teams seem to be nervous about the upside that Eichenberg brings and whether he is maxed out athletically.

However, what I see is a polished left tackle. Ok, he may not win the All-Pro, but if that is a 10-year starter in the second round, you have to be excited about this. It probably does not hurt that he knows Alex Bars and Sam Mustipher as well.

The only real question is whether they should look to replace right tackle and Bobby Massie before left tackle. That would mean taking Mayfield from Michigan here. However, the best prospect with the safest floor.
