The Bears positions of need are obvious: safety, offensive line and cornerback.
To that end, the Bears can't be wholly disappointed with how the first round went.
Nine defensive linemen went in the first round and six offensive linemen, four of which were tackles.
Remarkably, only seven quarterbacks, receivers and running backs went in the first round, so you can expect a run of those in the second.
Five cornerbacks were taken in the first but the only surprise may have been Patrick Robinson of Florida State, who, by several accounts, appears as if he were headed to Minnesota early in the second.
The point is, the Bears should have some reasonable options with their first choice. If they really have their eye on a particular player, the Bears have some flexibility to move up by packaging later picks. For instance, giving up their third- and fourth-round picks would get them to about the 29th pick in the second round.
Another interesting option might be to package the picks in the third, fifth and sixth round. That would get to the bottom of the second, where the Super Bowl teams (New Orleans and Indianapolis) might be willing to listen to offers.
The latter option may work so the Bears could -- in an ideal scenario, perhaps -- get a safety at the bottom of the second then get the best-available guard in the fourth. That would leave them with a seventh-rounder.
