With back-to-back picks, the Bears take interior offensive linemen. Teven Jenkins looks like a mainstay at guard, but we're not so sure how the future of Nate Davis will look after this season. At the very least, the Bears need more talent and depth on the interior. We've already said that Whitehair and Patrick should be gone, therefore having four capable interior linemen would be a big advantage for the Bears.
Ohio State's Donovan Jackson is best suited at guard, while Van Pran could step right in and become the starting center. Jackson is 6-foot-4, 320 pounds and brings a strong, dense frame to the line. He's powerful and has a lot of natural tools to use. Coming in and competing with Davis could give the Bears their best-case scenario up front, suddenly with a plethora of depth at guard.
For the fourth pick in a row, the Bears stay in the trenches and continue building their defensive line, this time. Texas' Byron Murphy joins the defensive line as a 6-foot-1, 297-pound lineman who will be able to join the rotation right away. Murphy plays with one heck of a motor and jumps off the screen when you watch Texas' defense play.
One of the best traits I see from Murphy when watching him attack offensive linemen is the way he uses his hands. His hands are violent and fast. They're constantly moving, and with a purpose. Murphy uses his hands well to race past linemen and get into the back field, both as a pass rusher and run stopper. In the fourth round, Murphy is a phenomenal value.
