In the second round, the Bears go after defensive line help; an area they need to continue to overhaul. In this past year's draft, Chicago went out and drafted Gervon Dexter and Zacch Pickens to add depth to the interior line, and they could wind up panning out as starters down the road.

But, the Bears have to continue addressing the position. Andrew Billings only signed a one-year deal this offseason, so he might be gone, although I'm sure Chicago might like to have him back. Justin Jones has been straight-up bad, and should not be brought back.

With their second-round pick, though, Chicago goes after a teammate of Marvin Harrison Jr., defensive lineman Michael Hall. The interior lineman brings a strong, dense frame to the position and he wins primarily due to leverage. Hall is a guy who does many things very well, but it all starts with his quick first step and ability to win low.

Over all of his strengths, the one thing I like about Hall is the fact that he works constantly. He's a player who will always be looking for work, always active and playing until the whistle blows. The Bears need that type of energy and effort up front, and Hall brings it.
