Perfect Round 2 draft hauls for the Chicago Bears, No. 5

Finally, we have come to the second-round haul that presents possibly the most upside for the Bears.

Round 2, Pick 39: Kenyon Green, OL – Texas A&M

Kenyon Green is arguably a first-round talent, graded that way by many. He’s also been a second-rounder in several mocks. But, he is the perfect fit for this Bears line. All you need to know about Green is that he might be the best run-blocking interior lineman in this draft. He finishes with tremendous power and is an absolute bulldozer in the run game.

Green is 6-foot-4 and 324 pounds, with a strong frame from top to bottom. In the passing game, he has improved his punch and anchor a lot over the years and is now very well-rounded in both aspects of the offense.

Round 2, Pick 48: Christian Watson, WR – North Dakota State

If Christian Watson is on the board at 48, and he very well could be, then the Bears are getting a steal. Watson may have played college ball against fairly weak competition at North Dakota State, but the 6-foot-4 wideout has tested out of this world in every pre-draft avenue thus far.

His 4.36 speed is mind-blowing considering his size. His catch radius, hands, and overall character make him a legitimate number one wide receiver at the NFL level. Watson has been a fan favorite for the Bears in the second round, and he and Green would give the Bears one of the best hauls for any team over the first two days, and Chicago would have done it without a first-rounder.
