Who would you take for the Bears in the 2nd round of our 2017 re-draft?

New, comments

Sure, SB Nation’s “What If?” Theme Week was last week, but the SB Nation NFL site managers are still powering through a two-round 2017 re-draft.

Okay, so technically we’re a week late in wrapping up SB Nation’s “What If” Theme week, but it takes a while to coordinate 32 NFL site managers to run through a full two round re-draft.

We got through the first round and are in the middle of round two right now.

But before we share how the Chicago Bears are redrafting at 36 here’s how the entire first round shook out, with a couple highlighted blurbs.

No. 1 - Cleveland Browns: Patrick Mahomes, QB, Texas Tech

No. 2 - San Francisco 49ers: Deshaun Watson, QB, Clemson

No. 3 - Chicago Bears: George Kittle, TE, Iowa

Just because the Bears didn’t make a blockbuster trade to move up one spot in this alternate reality doesn’t mean Lester Wiltfong at Windy City Gridiron wouldn’t shake things up. George Kittle, who had 1,053 yards and five touchdowns for the 49ers last season en route to the Super Bowl, was originally selected by the Niners in the fifth round of the 2017 draft. This is possibly the only move that would have been more surprising at the time than what the Bears actually did — but knowing what we know now about Kittle, it likely would have paid off.

No. 4 - Jacksonville Jaguars: Christian McCaffrey, RB, Stanford

No. 5 - Tennessee Titans: Myles Garrett, DE, Texas A&M

No. 6 - New York Jets: Jamal Adams, S, LSU

No. 7 - Los Angeles Chargers: Tre’Davious White, CB, LSU

No. 8 - Carolina Panthers: Marshon Lattimore, CB, Ohio State

No. 9 - Cincinnati Bengals: Ryan Ramczyk, OT, Wisconsin

No. 10 - Buffalo Bills: T.J. Watt, LB, Wisconsin

No. 11 - New Orleans Saints: Marlon Humphrey, DB, Alabama

No. 12 - Cleveland Browns: Chris Godwin, WR, Penn State

No. 13 - Arizona Cardinals: Alvin Kamara, RB, Tennessee

No. 14 - Philadelphia Eagles: Eddie Jackson, S, Alabama

Another Alabama product comes off the board at No. 14, sending Eddie Jackson to the Eagles courtesy of Bleeding Green Nation. Jackson slipped into the fourth round of the actual draft before being snapped up by the Bears, in part because he wasn’t able to perform at the Combine due to a broken leg he suffered during the October of his final college season. The two-time Pro Bowler also earned first-team All-Pro honors in 2018 after contributing one sack, two forced fumbles, and six picks.

No. 15 - Indianapolis Colts: Kenny Golladay, WR, Northern Illinois

No. 16 - Baltimore Ravens: JuJu Smith-Schuster, WR, USC

No. 17 - Washington: Jonathan Allen, DT, Alabama

No. 18 - Tennessee Titans: Adoree’ Jackson, CB, USC

No. 19 - Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Dalvin Cook, RB, FSU

No. 20 - Denver Broncos: Budda Baker, S, Washington

No. 21 - Detroit Lions: Cooper Kupp, WR, Eastern Washington

No. 22 - Miami Dolphins: Malik Hooker, S, Ohio State

No. 23 - New York Giants: Taylor Moton, T, Western Michigan

No. 24 - Las Vegas Raiders: Mike Williams, WR, Clemson

No. 25 - Houston Texans: Desmond King, CB, Iowa

No. 26 - Seattle Seahawks: D.J. Jones, DT, Ole Miss

No. 27 - Kansas City Chiefs: Shaquill Griffin, CB, UCF

No. 28 - Dallas Cowboys: Marcus Williams, S, Utah

No. 29 - Green Bay Packers: Aaron Jones, RB, UTEP

No. 30 - Pittsburgh Steelers: O.J. Howard, TE, Alabama

No. 31 - Atlanta Falcons: Dion Dawkins, T, Temple

No. 32 - New Orleans Saints: Evan Engram, TE, Mississippi

In the real second round of this draft the Bears took tight end Adam Shaheen from Ashland college with the 45th overall pick. Chicago’s actual pick before trading down was at 36, and the Cardinals took safety Budda Baker in that spot in 2017.

Here’s how the top of the 2nd-round re-draft has gone so far...

No. 33 - Cleveland Browns: John Johnson, S, Boston College

No. 34 - San Francisco 49ers: Curtis Samuel, WR, Ohio State

No. 35 - Jacksonville Jaguars: Chidobe Awuzie, CB, Coloorado

So with the Bears up at 36 overall in the second-round, what would you do?
