With the 19th pick in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft and the 51st pick overall, the Chicago Bears still need to fill plenty of holes along the defense. With plenty of quality players left on the board, here are the top 5 that the Bears should be looking at heading into day two.

Jernigan is a 6-foot-1, 300-pound defensive tackle from Florida State. Though he lacks some prototypical size for a defensive lineman, Jernigan makes up for it with his athletic ability. Playing on a line with Jared Allen and Lamarr Houston could also do wonders for his game.

Ra'Shede Hageman is a defensive tackle out of the University of Minnesota. Hageman has some questions surrounding his game because of some off-field issues, though he has great upside potential. The Bears could make a run for Hageman if he falls back a few spots because of these concerns.

Joyner is a versatile defensive back from Florida State. Having played both safety and conerback in his career at Florida State, Joyner would be a great fit for the Bears. A ball-hawk on the defense is a need for the Bears, and finding a guy with the versatility to play anywhere would be ideal.

Borland has been a late riser on most draft boards coming out of the University of Wisconsin. The Bears could benefit from adding more young depth at the linebacker position, and Borland plays very fast with a nose for finding the football at the line.

Desir is a little-known corner from Division II Lindenwood. Though he might not have a big school name attached, Desir does bring stats galore. Intercepting 25 passes in his college career, he shows that he has a knack for being around the football.
