The Chicago Bears should target Notre Dame tackle Liam EIchenberg in the 2nd Round

In Round 2, we are going to see a lot of offensive linemen get taken off the board.

Fortunately, the Bears should be able to come away with one.

Early in this round, we will probably see Oklahoma State’s Teven Jenkins become the first tackle off the board. He could be followed closely by Michigan’s Jalen Mayfield and North Dakota State’s Dillon Radunz. From there, it’s kind of a toss-up.

At pick 52, the Bears would be very fortunate to come away with Notre Dame’s Liam Eichenberg. They need a tackle, desperately, and Eichenberg would come in right away and start. Would he start at let tackle over Charles Leno? Maybe, but at the very least, Eichenberg would start on the right side.

He is a better run blocker than he is a pass blocker, but that won’t hurt Fields due to his escapability. And, that’s not to say he’s a poor pass blocker. He just doesn’t have the best mechanics just yet when it comes to pass blocking. That can be fixed. But, he excels in the run game.

Eichenberg is fairly strong and packs a punch when sealing off blocks for his backs. His presence would help the run game take it up a notch, which is something that will surely improve with Fields in town.

If Eichenberg is off the board at 52, the Bears could target one of the following: Clemson’s Jackson Carman, Stanford’s Walker Little or even Samuel Cosmi out of Texas.
