7. A talented trio of offensive lineman

There are three offensive linemen that could make sense for the Bears on Friday night: Tevin Jenkins (Oklahoma State), Liam Eichenberg (Notre Dame), and Dillon Radunz (North Dakota State). Heading into the first round, many did expect Jenkins to be selected.

Jenkins would slide in at right tackle for the Bears, giving Chicago an instant building block on the offensive line. After moving on from Bobby Massie earlier in the offseason, Chicago did bring back Germain Ifedi but Jenkins would be an instant upgrade. The 23-year-old does have some experience playing left tackle as well, should the Bears decide to move him to that side of the offensive line.

Eichenberg and Radunz were always expected to be day two picks. When looking at Eichenberg, he was a starter on the Notre Dame offensive line, specifically at left tackle for three seasons. Over the last few years, Chicago has taken a liking to Notre Dame offensive lineman with names like Sam Mustipher and Alex Bars already on the roster. Eichenberg could come in and be a day one starter.

Radunz is a player who primarily played tackle at North Dakota State. While he may not be the most athletic player on the planet, there is no denying his attention to detail and body control. As a player who showed off nastiness in the running game, he always made his presence felt. While Radunz might take a year to realize his full potential, he has the makings of being a solid starter for any NFL team.
