Chicago Bears: B+

Chicago knew its needs in the draft, and targeted them with two trades in the first round rounds. In the first round they jumped the Buccaneers to snag pass rusher Leonard Floyd. He's a movable piece who adds athleticism to the defense. Whitehair is a player who should push for the starting left guard job in 2016. The Bears moved up to No. 113 overall to get linebacker Nick Kwiatkoski, a smart linebacker who is a sure tackler. Chicago continued the push on defense on Day 3 with Deion Bush and Deiondre' Hall. Bush is a physical safety who can provide nice depth in the secondary. Hall is a lengthy cornerback who can tackle. He could be a solid center fielder if he's moved to safety. Howard can be a player who can split time with Jeremy Langford and potentially overtake him as the starter. He's a powerful runner who can get to the outside. Sixth rounder DeAndre Houston-Carson is a long-limbed pass defender who can play corner or safety.

Leonard Floyd

LB, Georgia

Floyd has an incredibly high upside, but has also been tabbed a 'boom or bust' linebacker in this year's draft class. He isn't an in-the-box linebacker, but will be able to roam the field in defensive coordinator Vic Fangio's base 3-4, and will generate an aggressive pass rush from the outside.


Cody Whitehair

OG, Kansas State

Whitehair is projected as an NFL left guard, which is interesting because they already have several guards on the roster. Whitehair is 6'4", 301 pounds, and is considered by many to be nearly ready to start in the NFL. He has great awareness, is very smart, and can hold his own against the meanest on the inside.


Jonathan Bullard

DT, Florida

Bullard has an explosive step off the line of scrimmage, and while he played multiple positions on Florida's defensive line, he will settle into a pure edge rusher role for Chicago.


Nick Kwiatkoski

LB, West Virginia

For the fourth time since the 2016 Draft began, the Chicago Bears made a trade when they were on the clock -- this time their second trade up to get a defensive player they wanted. The Bears jumped from No. 117 overall to No. 113 to draft linebacker Nick Kwiatkoski from West Virginia. Kwiatkowski is 6'2, 231 pounds, and projects as an inside linebacker in a base 3-4 defense.


Deon Bush

S, Miami

Bush is 6'2, 201 pounds, and has great range in the secondary. He will project as a special teams starter to begin with for Chicago, but will have the opportunity to compete for a starting spot. He will need some developing, but that's the case for 95 percent of rookies after being drafted.


Deiondre' Hall

S, Northern Iowa

Hall's a 6'2", 199 pound defensive back who saw time at both corner and safety and picked up the Missouri Valley Conference Defensive Player of the Year Award.


Jordan Howard

RB, Indiana

Howard is one of the last members of Alabama-Birmingham's now-defunct football program. After setting a UAB rushing record with 1,587 yards in 2014, he notched first-team All-Conference honors in the Big Ten in 2015.


DeAndre Houston-Carson

S, William & Mary

Houston-Carson was a three-year starter and all-conference cornerback, but switched to free safety and played his way into being an FCS All-American as a senior. With regard to tackles, he led all Colonial Athletic Asociation defensive backs with 8.4 tackles per game.


Daniel Braverman

WR, Western Michigan

The final 2016 draft pick is in for the Bears, and it's wide receiver Daniel Braverman out of Western Michigan. He's a 5'10", 177 pound guy who's worked a lot in the slot and has a lot of quickness.
