WR. USC. 1. player. 808. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. Jordan Addison

With the second pick they received from the Seahawks, the Bears go right back to work on the offensive side of the ball by drafting USC wide receiver Jordan Addison. Widely regarded as a top-3 receiver in the draft and even some folks’ number one prospect at the position, Addison will be an easy plug-and-play starter from Day 1.

Addison is a lot like fellow first-round prospect Jaxon Smith-Njigba in that he possesses average size at six feet tall, but is highly efficient in the areas that matter most. Addison’s release is up there with the best in his class and he’s able to get open with ease.

Having the ability to get open, combined with top-shelf body control, puts Addison at the top of his peers. This kid will be able to provide the Bears with a guy who can line up anywhere he’s asked. Regardless of the route, he’ll get open, period.

Over his three years in college, Addison caught a total of 219 passes for 3,134 yards and 29 touchdowns.

Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. Keion White. 880. EDGE. Georgia Tech. 2. player

With their first pick in the second round coming at number 51, the Bears go straight to the defensive line, drafting Georgia Tech pass rusher Keion White. As one of the most intriguing prospects in this draft, White is relatively new to his position. He switched to defensive line just three seasons ago after playing tight end, but it’s been one heck of a decision for the kid.

White stands 6-foot-4 and weighs in around 290 pounds. He is a gifted individual, athletically. White moves unlike many defensive ends can move and has an unrelenting motor. He’s very raw, but seems as though his ceiling knows no bounds.

Last year at Georgia Tech, White finished with 7.5 sacks, eight quarterback hits and 13 tackles for loss. He’ll immediately bolster this pass rush.
