NFL Draft 2020: Who’s next for Bears after Cole Kmet and Jaylon Johnson?

With their two Friday night picks, Ryan Pace and Matt Nagy addressed major positions of need, grabbing Notre Dame tight end Cole Kmet with the 43rd pick and Utah cornerback Jaylon Johnson seven picks later. 

So what's next? Staying on your couch all day, for one. On Saturday, the Bears have a whole bunch of picks: one in the 5th (163), two in the 6th (196, 200) and two in the 7th (226, 233). 

The only glaring position of need that the team hasn't addressed yet is offensive line, and it stands to reason that they'd try to fill out some depth there Saturday. TCU's Lucas Niang, Washington's Trey Adams, and LSU's Saahdiq Charles are all tackles the Bears could roll the dice on, while St. John's Ben Bartch and Auburn's Jack Driscoll could fill in the interior. 

At linebacker, names like Troy Dye (Oregon), Malik Harrison (Ohio State), and Akeem Davis-Gaither (App State) are all edge names to keep an eye on. 

And, if we really want to get crazy, Jake Fromm (Georgia), Jacob Eason (Washington), and Anthony Gordon (Washington State) are all QBs who may slip into the Bears' range. That would be a fun way to end the draft.
