Pick Analysis. Ohio State. 45. player. 57. Scouting Report. IOL. Josh Myers

In Round 2, the Bears have to take their best shot on an offensive lineman. A positive here is that Chicago has two interior linemen that are versatile in Cody Whitehair and James Daniels. So, if the Bears took a guy like Josh Myers, who is most comfortable at center, then Whitehair could slide back to guard where he’s also a stud.

With this pick, the Bears’ interior would be set. Daniels, Myers and Whitehair in the center and then, it’s on to fixing the tackle positions.

Chances are, if you’re an offensive lineman wanting to have the best chance at making it into the NFL, you’ll do your best to go to a school like Wisconsin, Ohio State or Alabama. Taking Myers is as good of a bet as you could get in the second round, and there’s been some talk of him sneaking into the first round.

Myers has a strong base. He’s powerful. Like a lot of interior linemen coming out of college, you want to see a bit of work at the hip level in terms of fluidity, and Myers is just about there. A little more improvement in hip movement would serve him well.

Chicago has to go all-out on the offensive line, and Myers is a heck of a choice here at 45.
