Perfect Round 2 draft hauls for the Chicago Bears, No. 4

Welcome to maybe the most impressive haul for the Bears in Round 2, as Chicago snags a wide receiver who is ranked in the top three of his class by many and a Day 1 starter on the offensive line.

Round 2, Pick 39: Treylon Burks, WR – Arkansas

For about a month now, Arkansas wideout Treylon Burks has been sliding down draft boards because of his “poor” combine performance. He only ran a 4.55 in his 40-yard dash and has questions about his possible route tree being able to expand.

But, when you turn on the film, Burks is an absolute monster. All he does is dominate opposing defensive backs before and after the catch. At 6-foot-3 and 225 pounds, Burks is solid and strong. His catch radius knows no bounds and he possesses size 4XL hands. Go turn on the film, and if you don’t see a first-round lock, you need to do some more studying.

Round 2, Pick 48: Abraham Lucas, Washington State

At pick No. 48, there may not be a more realistic pick than Washington State offensive tackle Abraham Lucas. Not only is Lucas realistic, but he’s an excellent pick here.

Lucas stands 6-foot-7 and gives the Bears an athletic starting tackle opposite of Jenkins. His frame makes him an ideal left tackle candidate, and if he can put on just a bit more weight, Lucas has the chance to be a special player in this league.
