2008 Bears

Quick Jump -> [ROUND 1] [ROUND 2] [ROUND 3] [ROUND 4] [ROUND 5] [ROUND 6] [ROUND 7]

 The Bears have 12 Draft Picks in 2008
Bears 2021 Draft History
1 14 14  Chris Williams OT Vanderbilt
 Draft Scout Says: With only two offensive tackles on the roster the Bears were ecstatic to have their choice between Virginia's Branden Albert and Williams with the 14th pick. Williams, a pure left tackle, offers more immediate help for an offensive front needing youth and athleticism.
Bears 2021 Draft History
2 13 44  Matt Forte' RB Tulane
 Draft Scout Says: With concerns regarding the consistency and intensity from Cedric Benson, the Bears added a speed back in Garrett Wolfe last year. In adding a bigger back in Forte with this pick, clearly the pressure is on Benson to step up his production.
Bears 2021 Draft History
3 7 70  *Earl Bennett WR Vanderbilt (Bears and 49ers switched positions and 49ers forfeited 5th-round pick as result of league decision regarding 49ers tampering with LB Lance Briggs, March 24, 2008.)
 Draft Scout Says: For all of the attention heaped upon Chicago's weak running game, inconsistent play from their receivers was also a huge concern. Considering the turnover at the position next season, a dependable receiver was a higher priority than a supremely athletic one. Bennett, the SEC's career leader in receptions despite leaving after his junior season, has a nice combination of size and speed, but is best known for his route-running and hands.
Bears 2021 Draft History
3 27 90  Marcus Harrison DT Arkansas (Bears acquired pick and 2nd, 3rd and 5th-round picks in 2007 draft from Chargers for 2nd-round pick in 2007 draft, April 28, 2007.)
 Draft Scout Says: Needing depth at defensive tackle, the Bears added former Arkansas standout Marcus Harrison in the third round. Compared by some to former Chicago standout, Tank Johnson, Harrison has to play with more consistency and prove that his character concerns are history.

4 21 120  Craig Steltz SS LSU

5 9 142  Zackary Bowman CB Nebraska (Bears acquired pick from Panthers for S Chris Harris, August 3, 2007.)
