    The Chicago Bears might turn their attention toward the defense as the draft continues with the second and third rounds on Friday.

    The Bears drafted dynamic West Virginia receiver Kevin White with the seventh overall pick Thursday night, hoping he can fill a void created by the Brandon Marshall trade.

    But they still have some huge issues on defense.

    The Bears own one pick each in the second and third rounds at Nos. 39 and 71 on Friday. Chicago also has a fourth-rounder, fifth-rounder and sixth-rounder on Saturday.
