Defensive Players Available for Bears in Rounds 2 & 3

| May 1st, 2015


The Bears spent their first round selection on an offensive weapon and it’s safe to say that if Adam Gase is a halfway decent offensive coordinator and Jay Cutler buys into his approach the Bears will be a solid offensive unit in 2015. Their defense – even with some high profile and high priced additions – needs to get younger. The Antrel Rolles and Ray McDonalds and Mason Fosters of the world are fine but they are not going to be the foundation of a sustainably great defensive unit.

Below are some names to keep in mind as rounds two and three swallow up your television this evening. I like each of the players listed but videos accompany the player in each category for which I have a particular affinity.

Eric Kendricks, UCLA

Denzel Perryman, Miami

Bernardrick McKinney, Mississippi State


Landon Collins, Alabama

Josh Shaw, USC

Adrian Amos, Penn State

Jordan Phillips, Oklahoma

Eddie Goldman, Florida State
