Once again, months of prep and first-round mocks were thrown out the window as another first round of the NFL Draft kicked off last night.
Players that weren't expected to go in the top ten, like Jack Conklin and Eli Apple. A player like Joey Bosa, whom most experts said didn't fit with a 3-4, went to the Chargers, which run a 3-4.
Other players, like Myles Jack and Laremy Tunsil, slipped out of the top ten.
The Bears were part of the surprise, when they traded up from 11th to ninth for the small price of a fourth round pick to select Georgia OLB Leonard Floyd.
Now, the pick was met with some hesitation, and that's putting it politely, by the commenters on this very blog.
The fact of the matter is that we just won't know how the Floyd pick will turn out for another couple of years. That's the reality.
Vic Fangio and John Fox have a track record of developing some very good defensive players, so perhaps they've earned a little bit of the benefit of the doubt.
That said, let's now turn to day two.
There are still some great players left on the board for the Bears to choose from and choose early they will with the 10th overall selection in round two (41 overall).
Reggie Ragland, A'Shawn Robinson, Jarran Reed, Noah Spence, Mackensie Alexander, Jaylon Smith and Jack are just a the top of the list.
The Bears still have plenty of needs, which position do you think they should take in round two? Which player specifically do you have your eye on? Do you think that Ryan Pace should take a risky player like Smith or Jack?
