One pick after selecting a stud pass rusher, the Bears go back to their defensive line and draft Michigan defensive lineman Kris Jenkins. The son of former NFL defensive lineman, Kris Jenkins Sr., Jenkins has football running through his blood. Michigan's stud defensive tackle is also more of a 3-technique than a true nose tackle, being a bit more nimble and carrying his weight really well.

The Bears would now have an interior featuring Andrew Billings, Gervon Dexter, Zacch Pickens and Jenkins, giving them a nice four-man rotation that could get even better, later on in the draft.

The Bears are likely going to move on from both Cody Whitehair and Lucas Patrick on the interior. They have to move on and get younger and more versatile, here. Going with Georgia center Sedrick Van Pran gives the Bears an immediate replacement for one of them alongside Teven Jenkins and whomever ends up being the long-term option at the other guard.

Other than size and strength (Van Pran stands 6-foot-4, 310 pounds), his best trait is football intelligence. Van Pran knows how to play multiple positions, takes great angles and is also unbelievably powerful. He can go toe-to-toe with some of the bigger nose tackles in the country.
