Despite some of the biggest names coming off the board in the first round, plenty of solid options will be available for the Bears to select on Friday night.
Here are six players I believe the team should be targeting on Day 2.
1. Ra'Shede Hageman, Defensive Tackle, Minnesota
Emery drafted an athletic player with high upside in the first round in Kyle Fuller, and he may be looking to do the same in the second round.
Minnesota's Ra'Shede Hageman is a monster of man, measuring in at 6'6" and 310 pounds. Despite his enormous frame, he has a tremendous first step and is one of the most athletic defensive tackles in this draft.
His work ethic is a concern and may be the reason he has fallen to the second day of the draft. If the Bears are willing to take a risk on a player with tremendous upside who has the ability to wreak havoc in the middle of the defensive line for years to come, Hageman should be their guy.
2. Terrence Brooks, Safety, Florida State
After a run at the safety position that saw Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, Calvin Pryor, Deone Bucannon and Jimmie Ward all go in the first round, Terrence Brooks quickly becomes a hot commodity for any team looking for a safety.
The Bears added one piece to their secondary by drafting Fuller, and Brooks could help solidify the free safety position.
Brooks has a great combination of speed, agility and awareness. His versatility gives him the ability to cover tight ends or wide receivers in the slot, come up and play the run in the box, and man the back half of the field as a single-high safety.
3. Timmy Jernigan, Defensive Tackle, Florida State
If Ra'Shede Hageman is off of the board when the Bears select at No. 51, Florida State's Timmy Jernigan could be the Bears' next best option.
Jernigan has the flexibility to play either the 3-technique or nose tackle position. He does a good job of maintaining his gaps and uses his long arms and frame to move past strong defenders.
4. Will Sutton, Defensive Tackle, Arizona State
Will Sutton was one of the most dominant 3-technique defensive tackles in all of college football during the 2012 season. After being asked to gain weight in 2013, his production dropped off, and his draft stock fell because of it.
He has the potential to be a dominant 3-technique in the NFL and will have to prove he can get himself back to his old playing weight.
5. Charles Sims, Running Back, West Virginia
A virtual clone of Matt Forte, Charles Sims possesses great vision and patience as a runner and has some of the best hands out of all of the running backs in this year's draft.
He likely would not be an option until the third round, and he could be a perfect complement to Forte in the running game.
6. Ed Reynolds, Safety, Stanford
If the Bears want to remain primarily a Cover 2 defense in 2014, Stanford safety Ed Reynolds would be a perfect fit.
Reynolds plays with good anticipation and instincts and rarely finds himself lined up in the wrong spot. He still needs to develop in man coverage but has proved to be solid in zone. He projects as a possible third-round pick.
