20. Jordan Devey, Memphis, 6-7, 317: He caught the attention of NFL scouts at the East-West Shrine game. Devey has played left tackle, right tackle and guard. He did not play football in high school, instead playing the tuba in the school band. After graduating, he went on a church mission before enrolling in college and taking up the sport. He is 25, considerably older than most rookies.

21. Tanner Hawkinson, Kansas, 6-5, 298: He is a tough blocker who would fit in a zone scheme because of his ability to move and play well in space. He started out as a tight end, and also played some defensive end. Scouts see him as a right tackle, and a probable backup in the NFL. Hawkinson started 48 games at Kansas.

22. David Quessenberry, San Jose State, 6-5, 302: He is smart, competitive and tough, but limited as an athlete. He is an aggressive blocker who plays to the echo of the whistle. He has been a solid left tackle for three years. Improved lower body strength would help him. Quessenberry is yet another former tight end.

23. Jordan Mills, Louisiana Tech, 6-5, 316: He is a thick, powerful, aggressive blocker who can make space for running backs. His athleticism isn't the best, and he subsequently will lunge at times. He is the cousin of Packers cornerback Tramon Williams.

24. Emmett Cleary, Boston College, 6-7, 316: He is a college left tackle who likely will have to play right tackle in the NFL, according to scouts. He also could be a backup as guard. He is a typical Boston College blocker — tough, heady and physical, but not quick-footed. With his size, there likely is a place in the NFL for this St. Viator High School grad.

The Bears

The free agent signing of Jermon Bushrod significantly lessens the Bears' need here. But the possibility of them taking a tackle should not be ruled out, even with their first pick. Bushrod will play left tackle. J'Marcus Webb is shifting to the right side. If a tackle is available general manager Phil Emery believes is better than Webb, and is better than any one else on the board, the Bears suddenly could have a surplus at the position.
