3. Chicago Bears – Malik Hooker – S – Ohio State
The Chicago Bears have holes to fill all over the field. With Jay Cutler out of town, the Bears have seemingly found their guy by inking Mike Glennon to a multi-year deal. The next unit they need to shore up is their defensive backfield, and Malik Hooker should help tremendously. The ball-hawking safety bears a strong resemblance to all-time great, Ed Reed. Hooker underwent surgery preventing him from performing at the combine, but the free safety should make game-changing plays for the Chicago Bears.

4. Jacksonville Jaguars – Solomon Thomas – DE – Stanford
The Jaguars aren’t too far from contention, but one thing the team is desperate for is a pass rush. Thomas has flown up draft boards in the last month and there’s reason for it – the Stanford product is a major disruptor. His talent will fit in perfectly with a young Jacksonville defense that has drafted Dante Fowler, Myles Jack and Jalen Ramsey in previous years.
