Scouting Report. player. Pick Analysis. DL. Florida. Gervon Dexter Sr.. 2. 840

With their second pick in the second round, the Bears again go defensive line here when they draft Florida 3-Technique Gervon Dexter Sr. This is a bit of a wildcard pick, but Dexter could end up flourishing into an absolutely dominant interior lineman.

There are concerns about Dexter in terms of technique, just because he doesn’t always have a clear plan or path to the backfield. Yet, when the ball is snapped, Dexter only knows one speed. He goes after it. There are times when he looks like the best player on the field, and other times where you see the need for just a bit more refining.

The Bears need a guy up front with a motor, and that’s what they get in Dexter. He’s another one with enormous potential, and if he hits, this line could change drastically in no time.

878. LB. 3. player. Iowa. Jack Campbell. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis

In the third round, the Bears once more go defense by selecting Iowa linebacker Jack Campbell. He’s a favorite of mine that I’ve mocked to Chicago multiple times now, and just the thought of Campbell next to Jack Sanborn is tantalizing. The only question about these two is whether or not they have the speed to play next to each other in this scheme, but both are tackling machines.

Campbell is an old school, hard-nosed linebacker that will come in and be unafraid to butt heads with anybody. In his last two seasons with the Hawkeyes, Campbell has totaled 265 tackles, nine tackles for a loss, seven passes defensed and four interceptions. The guy does it all, and would be a welcomed addition to a Bears defense lacking playmakers at the position.
