Round 3, pick 64: Keeanu Benton, DT, Wisconsin

The Chicago Bears are not done building the trenches. Okay, Adetomiwa Adebawore is a bit undersized to consistently play inside. Let's beef up the middle with Keeanu Benton. Benton would be a great fit on this defensive line.

First off, he is a run stuffer, and we know how bad the Chicago Bears were at stopping the run. He plays more of the nose and 1-technique, so long term it would be a nice fit with Adetomiwa Adebawore. Beyond that, he would be able to come in and play a similar role to Andrew Billings. Eventually he would over take Billins. So, Adetomiwa Adebawore would be woring with Justin Jones, while Benton would work with Billings, and both rookies would take over once they are ready.

Benton is a good run stuffer, but through the Senior Bowl and NFL Combine he flashed enough pass rushing skills that he should be closer to a second round pick. This would be a great fit, and excellent value if Benton were around. He could contribute right away.
