With the 50th pick in the draft, the Chicago Bears select…

Jon Bostic, LB, Florida Gators (6-1, 245 pounds)

The Bears fill a pressing need at middle linebacker by selecting Jon Bostic, a highly productive player from Florida. Bostic isn't a great athlete and this pick is definitely a reach (which makes two reaches in two picks for the Bears). While Bostic is a strong and physical player who attacks the play and will make big-time hits, he is not a top athlete.
