Justin Hollins, DE, Oregon

While I just presented two high-risk players the Bears could draft, Justin Hollins from Oregon seems to be a pretty safe pick for any team looking to add depth to their edge rush.

Hollins had a good showing at the combine and has jumped up a few mock drafts into the third or fourth round. It may not be worth it for the Bears to draft him as high as in the third round, but it depends how many pass rushers are selected early.

Hollins had his best season statistically as a senior, totaling five forced fumbles and 14.5 tackles for loss. He has a lot of talent for a guy projected to go in the later rounds, but this is also a very good draft class of pass rushers.

It’s important for the Bears to add at least one pass rusher this draft, and Hollins may be the smartest pick of the three players highlighted here. It will be a tough call no matter what.

The Bears have a solid roster going into next season. There are a couple of areas the team needs to add depth to, but no real areas of severe weakness that need to be addressed in the draft.

The team doesn’t have early picks, but the Bears can still find a talented player on the second day of the draft. Don’t be shocked if one of these guys is holding up a Bears jersey this weekend.
