Ranking 5 best Day 2 outcomes for Chicago Bears
3. Defensive Line – Cornerback – Wide Receiver
The Chicago Bears have been connected heavily to Logan Hall. The odds are getting lower that he will even be on the board at pick 39, but if he is, you would think that the Bears are interested. As noted, it is hard to see a cornerback worthy of being selected at pick 71.
So, if they are going to do it, it has to be at 48. In this scenario, it still is likely that one of Elam, Booth, or Woolen is still on the board, and ESPN analytics thinks it will be Elam.
This one may annoy fans, but it could have them nabbing two defensive starters while still finding a strong crop of wideouts in round three. This scenario could leave them open to their buffet of day three offensive lineman.
Khalil Shakir is expected to be on the board in round three, and rumors are that Jalen Tolbert is closer to round three than pick 48 as well.
Between these two and a few other options, the Bears could feel comfortable waiting. Would fans feel comfortable if the Bears went with Logan Hall, Kaiir Elam, then Khalil Shakir?
