Ryan Pace is entering his second year as general manager of the Chicago Bears, and it is evident through his first two drafts and free agency periods that he has a clear plan to improve the Bears' position in the NFC North, and he's not afraid to be aggressive to get what he wants.
On Saturday, he had six picks remaining to make: Three in the 4th round, and one each in the 5th, 6th, and 7th rounds.
Here is the final look at the Bears draft picks:
|Round (Round, Overall Pick)||Player||Position||College|
|1st (9)||Leonard Floyd||OLB||Georgia|
|2nd (25-56)||Cody Whitehair||OG||Kansas State|
|3rd (9-72)||Jonathan Bullard||DT||Florida|
|4th (15-113)||Nick Kwiatkoski||LB||West Virginia|
|4th (26-124)||Deon Bush||S||Miami|
|4th (29-127)||Deiondre' Hall||CB||Northern Iowa|
|5th (11-150)||Jordan Howard||RB||Indiana|
|6th (10-185)||DeAndre Houston-Carson||S||William & Mary|
|7th (9-230)||Daniel Braverman||WR||Western Michigan|
After the Bears had made their final pick, wide receiver Daniel Braverman from Western Michigan, Mike Mayock said on ESPN that Pace had gotten "incredible value" in his final three picks, as Mayock had Howard, Houston-Carson, and Braverman all graded out as 3rd and 4th round prospects.
Pace and John Fox wanted aggressive speed on defense, and to add some competition on offense, and they did just that with each of their picks this year.
We will take a closer look at how each pick gets graded soon, but until then, how are you feeling about Pace's work during this year's draft?
