17. Jack Crawford, Penn State, 6-5, 274. He emigrated from London and was initially a basketball player. Crawford has an NFL body, plays hard, runs well and is strong. He is raw in his technique, and his instincts are off. He is a little stiff athletically.

18. Kyle Wilber, Wake Forest, 6-4, 249. This is a speed rusher with good athletic ability. He has some slipperiness and has potential to develop as a pass rusher. He is very lean, and his ability to anchor is a problem. He could be best as an outside linebacker in a 3-4 or a situational rusher.

19. Tim Fugger, Vanderbilt, 6-3, 248. This is a high-motor player with good instincts and decent speed. He knows how to use leverage to his advantage. He uses solid technique. Fugger has a hip injury that could affect his stock.

20. Malik Jackson, Tennessee, 6-5, 284. Jackson has some athleticism and length. A transfer from USC, he also could play tackle. He had a decent workout and helped his stock. He could develop in the right situation.

21. Jonathan Massaquoi, Troy, 6-2, 264. He is athletic and tough but raw. He has decent strength and plays with leverage. He also is a consideration at outside linebacker for 3-4 teams. His instincts are questionable.

22. Scott Solomon, Rice, 6-3, 262. Solomon is an average athlete who plays hard and gets the most out of his ability. He knows how to get under a blocker's pads. He is smart and instinctive. He also could play tackle.

23. Broderick Binns, Iowa, 6-1, 261. He is undersized and limited athletically, but he is disruptive. Binns uses his long arms well and plays with a feel for the game. He is quicker than he is fast.

24. Trevor Guyton, California, 6-2, 285. This is a try-hard lineman with some power. He plays with good pad level. He also could play tackle in a four-man front.

25. Brandon Lindsey, Pittsburgh, 6-1, 254. He has some pass-rushing talent but is inconsistent. He needs to improve his run defense and play more physically. He can play outside linebacker in a three-man front.

26. Jacquies Smith, Missouri, 6-2, 253. He is a good athlete who can rush and drop. His best position could be stand-up linebacker in a 4-3. Smith shows some power. His production was spotty.

The Bears

The Bears have one of the league's premier ends in Julius Peppers and a fine complement in Israel Idonije. But both are older than 30, and neither is a speed rusher. What's more, the depth is highly questionable. Given the importance of pass rushing to the Bears' philosophy, this is an area of significant need.
