Round Two—Kenny Britt, WR, Rutgers: The Bears need to take the No. 1 receiver available.

Round Three (complementary)—Darcel Mcbath, FS, Texas Tech: He is great all around in coverage, but he needs to work on strength and tackling.

Round Four—Stephen Hodge, OLB/SS/FB, TCU: Hodge is versatile and can play multiple positions.

Round Five—Kyle Moore, DE, USC: He is tall and athletic.

Round Five (from trade)—Louis Vasquez, OG/OT, Texas Tech: He provides big, strong depth.

Round Six—Ian Johnson, RB, Boise State: Johnson is a good, quick complimentary back who could be found in the later rounds.

Round Seven—Brannan Southerland, FB/TE/WR, Georgia: He can play multiple positions mainly FB, can  start, and will be able to become yet another weapon as a player in the backfield who can catch a pass.

Round Seven (complementary)—WR: The Bears need to get whichever wide receiver is left who has the most potential.
