With the 2nd pick in the NFL Draft, the Chicago Bears select…

Calvin Pryor, S, Louisville

Selection made by Mike Burzawa, Bear Goggles On

Here is the analysis on the selection:

The Bears were historically bad on defense in 2013, so there is a big need to bolster that side of the ball. Phil Emery invested a lot of free agent resources to rebuild the defensive line. A lot of people hoped defensive tackle Aaron Donald will slip to #14, but with him off the board, the Bears focus on their next biggest need, safety. Calvin Pryor is known as a bit of a thumper in the defensive backfield, so he’ll add an intimidation factor that the Bears have lacked in the safety position since Gary Fencik.
