Here's a list of the remaining players ranked from SBNation:
21. Josh Jones, OT, Houston
22. A.J. Epenesa, Edge, Iowa
23. Grant Delpit, S, LSU
25. Yetur Gross-Matos, Edge, Penn State
26. Xavier McKinney, S, Alabama
27. Ezra Cleveland, OT, Boise State
28. Antoine Winfield Jr., S, Minnesota
31. Laviska Shenault Jr., WR, Colorado
32. D’Andre Swift, RB, Georgia
33. J.K. Dobbins, RB, Ohio State
34. Jonathan Greenard, Edge, Florida
35. Trevon Diggs, CB, Alabama
36. Denzel Mims, WR, Baylor
40. Ross Blacklock, DL, TCU
43. Jonathan Taylor, RB, Wisconsin
44. Tee Higgins, WR, Clemson
46. Michael Pittman Jr., WR, USC
47. Prince Tega Wanogho, OT, TCU
48. Jaylon Johnson, CB, Utah
49. Kristian Fulton, CB, LSU
50. Marlon Davidson, DL, Auburn
51. Curtis Weaver, Edge, Boise State
52. Lloyd Cushenberry, C, LSU
53. Justin Madubuike, DL, Texas A&M
54. Cameron Dantzler, CB, Mississippi State
56. KJ Hamler, WR, Penn State
57. Zack Baun, LB, Wisconsin
58. Kyle Dugger, S, Lenoir-Rhyne
59. Terrell Lewis, Edge, Alabama
60. Cam Akers, RB, Florida State
61. Julian Okwara, Edge, Notre Dame
62. Jeremy Chinn, S, Southern Illinois
63. Neville Gallimore, DL, Oklahoma
64. Robert Hunt, G, Louisiana
65. Matt Peart, OT, Connecticut
66. Josh Uche, Edge, Michigan
67. Bryan Edwards, WR, South Carolina
68. Van Jefferson, WR, Florida
69. Zack Moss, RB, Utah
70. Cole Kmet, TE, Notre Dame
71. Saahdiq Charles, OT, LSU
72. Jacob Eason, QB, Washington

I'd love to see Kmet drop to the Bears, not sure if he'll be there. Otherwise you could choose between Delpit and Winfield for S, and then some OL help (one of the LSU boys Charles or Lewis).

Would Pace pull the trigger on a QB for the lower second round pick if Hurts or Eason are still there? I wouldn't put it past him but I don't know if he will after getting Foles.
San Francisco has always been my favorite booing city. I don't mean the people boo louder or longer, but there is a very special intimacy. Music, that's what it is to me. One time in Kezar Stadium they gave me a standing boo.

Jaylon Johnson or Fulton, coupled with a trade down to the end of the round and then either Hennessey, Cushenberry, Kmet or Van Jefferson.

I would love McKinney or Espinesa to fall in our lap. Both are definate first round talent.

Would love to see Jaylon Johnson in a Bears uniform but what about trying to move Cohen for a 3rd round pick and getting one of those running backs. I think Taylor from Wisconsin matched with Montgomery would be a pretty lethal combo and hopefully inspire Nagy to run the ball more. And that could still allow us to get an OL in the first 3 rounds...

I don't have time for listing, but Reager and Ruiz are the only ones I was disappointed to see come off in R1

I've got 7 guys on my board that I'd be happy with at #43.
1. S Grant Delpit
2. CB Trevon Diggs
3. S Xavier McKinney
4. CB Jaylon Johnson
5. OT Josh Jones
6. OG/OT Ezra Cleveland
7. TE Cole Kmet

So I'm feeling pretty good, and maybe we should try to trade back a couple of picks.

I honestly expected both to be gone, but yeah, they both hurt a little.

I really like Shane Lemieux....I wouldn’t mind him in a trade down in the 3rd.

If we stand pat...Cushenberry and Winfield are my top choices
