2012 NFL Draft: Analyzing the Chicago Bears' 1st Round OL Prospects
These guys may look happy, but they are in dire need of some help.

In part two of this series analyzing possible first round draft picks the Chicago Bears may choose in the upcoming draft, we will take a look at some of the available prospects on the offensive line.

The offensive line of the Bears has long been a recurring issue that has yet to be resolved.  Last season, the Bears line ranked 28th in sacks allowed giving up 49.  One thing we do have to acknowledge is the absence of Gabe Carimi and Chris Williams.  Carimi had shown flashes of promise and Chris Williams was excelling as a pulling guard, sticking impressive blocks for Matt Forte on a number of occasions.

Despite the prospect of the line taking steps in the right direction, it's still an obvious weakness.  Without question though, the biggest area of concern resides at the left tackle position where J'Marcus Webb was rated by Pro Football Focus as the leagues worst left tackle, allowing 38 quarterback pressures.

Taking all of this into account, let's take a look at some of the possible offensive lineman that could be available for the Chicago Bears.
