Bears land 4 of the "Best Available Prospects" on Day 2

The Bears chose to sit on the sidelines of the first day of the draft, by trading their only pick (#49) on Day 1. However, that didn't stop them from landing some of the best prospects. 

After the first two rounds of the draft concluded on Saturday, many web sites started to publish their lists of the "Best Players Available on Day 2." So, how did we do?

Well, surprisingly, the Bears were able to grab 4 of the consensus top players available on Day 2 of the draft:

Round 3, Pick #68 - Jarron Gilbert, DE, San Jose State
Round 3, Pick #99 - Juaquin Iglesias, WR, Oklahoma
Round 4, Pick #119 - D.J. Moore, CB, Vanderbilt
Round 5, Pick # 154 - Marcus Freeman, OLB, Ohio St.

From a value standpoint, you have to give the Bears credit for trading down, and still finding a way to select a handful of the best prospects on the second day.

Let's take a look at the lists:
