The Chicago Bears made some waves in Round 1 of the 2012 NFL Draft by taking Boise State Broncos defensive end Shea McClellin with the 19th pick, but now the team may focus on offense in Round 2 and Round 3, which will both unfold on Friday night (6 p.m. MT, ESPN and NFL Network). McClellin is a high-motor pass-rusher that general manager Phil Emery said will start at left defensive end in training camp -- opposite star DE Julius Peppers -- but now the Bears need to look at adding depth along the offensive line, at wide receiver and in the defensive secondary in the later rounds.
SB Nation's NFL Draft site, Mocking The Draft, set up a Round 2 Mock Draft for the 2012 NFL Draft, and the Bears are projected to select Rutgers WR Mohamed Sanu at pick No. 50. Sanu is the fifth-rated wide receiver in the 2012 NFL Draft, according to Mocking The Draft's rankings.
Could the Bears trade back for additional picks? Phil Emery's draft philosophy will continue to unfold in front of our eyes, and every moment provides a bit more insight on how he plans to build a long-term contender in Chicago.
