Heading into Day 2 the Bears have two big picks in the 3rd round. They really have a chance to change the shape of this offense. My guess is that they address wide receiver with one of them. The next batch of receivers are:

Mario Manningham, Michigan
Andre Caldwell, Florida
Early Doucet, LSU

The other pick might not be so easy to predict. The Bears could use it to look at QB with John David Booty or Dennis Dixon if they like any of them. If instead they decide to not draft a QB or go after San Diego St. QB Kevin O'Connell in a later round maybe the Bears use their first pick on defense and go with a guy like Tom Zbikowski, a safety out of Notre Dame that most Bears fans seem to have a crush on.

They could also look to bolster their defensive tackle postion with guys like Andre Fluellen from Florida St or Pat Sims out of Auburn.

After that the Bears have one pick in each the 4th, 5th and 6th, but have 4 7th round picks. I'd really like the Bears to use their wealth of picks and start moving around and fill out some areas of need.
