A few picks later, the Bears stay in the trenches but go back to defense and select Texas Longhorns defensive lineman T'Vondre Sweat. No, there is no relation to Montez, but it sure makes things interesting.

Sweat is a 6-foot-4, 362-pound mammoth in the middle. He is an absolute tank. If you want a big, strong presence to aid in stopping the run, this is your man.

The Bears' current interior line includes Andrew Billings, Justin Jones and rookies Gervon Dexter and Zacch Pickens. Jones should be as good as gone next year, and Billings is a free agent. Therefore, adding Sweat gives the Bears one more young player in the rotation. If Chicago can keep Billings, who has played well, they'd have a nice four-man group up front.

Noticing a trend, here? The Bears once again stay in the trenches, this time with an offensive tackle and making it their fourth lineman of the draft. Michigan's Zak Zinter comes to Chicago to give a bit more competition to the interior line, possibly pushing Nate Davis for his starting spot.

A 6-foot-5, four-year starter, Zinter comes to the league with tons of experience helping anchor one of the nation's best offensive lines over the last few years. He is another massive, strong player to add to the trenches. Zinter is also known for his intelligence. He is a very smart football player who understands the intricacies of every assignment up front.
