The first day of the draft came and went like a windstorm, but the second day is always the best day of the NFL draft. For the Chicago Bears, it will be the meat of the draft as well as the team has three picks. Unfortunately, they have the Ravens and 49ers second-round picks, so they do not pick until midway through round one.

It will be tough to know who will be there in the next 32 picks, as the Chicago Bears have three picks in that range. However, these 10 players are who fans need to be rooting for.

10. Keion White, DE, Georgia Tech

The Chicago Bears addressed their offensive line in round one, and now they would love to hit some defensive line help. One of the better options would be Keion White. White is a heavy rusher as an outside player, but his size and strength may project him best to the inside. Speaking of project, that could be what White is considered.

He played fullback at Old Dominion early in his career, but moved to defense and saw his stock rise. He transferred to Georgia Tech and now he is in contention to be a day-two pick. The issue is that White is raw, and he is not young with his long journey to the NFL.

So, the upside is immense, but the wait may not be worth it, and it could never come. Still, at worst, you are getting a thick presence who can play with power and hustle. At some point, he will be the best player available. His size and strength make him a player who could be similar to DeMarcus Walker, and it could be a nice fit for White to rotate with and behind Walker, and then eventually hope to take over with more upside as he grows in the NFL.
