Later in the fourth round, the Bears cannot pass up on one of the most underrated running backs this class has to offer. Wisconsin's Braelon Allen is an absolute tank, but he plays faster than you might think. Allen is 6-foot-1, 235 pounds and runs with a full head of steam.

This is a guy used to handling the load in a tough Big Ten Conference and gives off some major Derrick Henry vibes, watching his tape. Allen creates a three-headed monster between he, Khalil Herbert and Roschon Johnson, making the Bears yet again one of the top rushing teams in the league.

With their first pick in the fifth round, the Bears go back to adding defensive line talent by selecting Clemson's Tyler Davis. Like Dorlus, Davis sports a compact, dense frame. He stands 6-foot-2, 300 pounds and is one of the better run defenders at his position, in this class.

Davis will fit in well with a run defense that finished as tops in the NFL last season.
