NFL Draft.


The Draft is upon us. This Thursday will be the beginning of a weekend of putting the final pieces together in what seems to be a very promising season for our boys at Halas Hall.

We’ve stressed here long enough on what the Bears need to do. We already know the offensive line is stacked with the draft picks from last year and the signing of Brian De La Puente from the Saints last month. He will be Roberto Garza’s backup just in case. This gives the team assurance that the line is ready to go again without having to spend any more draft picks.

So here are the Bears with seven picks to go. Do they trade down to get more or do they stay where they are at?

This won’t be about who you want them to take necessarily, but what positions? I’ve said for quite a while, that with seven picks, the first four should consist of (in order), a defensive tackle, cornerback, linebacker and running back. What positions should they take with the remaining three?

    I have to admit, for the first time in years, I’m truly looking forward to the draft. I was leery last year, mainly because I wasn’t sure what Phil Emery would do. Now that I’ve seen that he knows what he’s doing, I say Thursday can’t get here soon enough.

    As for what position I hope they go for, I’ll simply say, in this order:

    1) Defense

    1) Defense

    2) Defense

    3) Defense

    4) Defense

    5) Defense

    6) Defense

    7) Defense

    Am I being too vague?

    (Meatball voice) Can the Bears give up all of those picks and just bring back Ditka? Fair trade!

  3. chucky Says:

    (Bigger meatball voice)Great idea! Then we go after Ricky Williams. He’ll take us over the top and to the promised land. He’s exactly what we need!

    IMHO, at leafs two of those last three picks need to be safeties. I’m tired of seeing the Bears’ secondary getting lit up by back-ups and first-and-second year QBs.

  5. Fro Dog Says:

    You’re right. They do need safeties (why didn’t I mention that?). Ryan Mundy and M.D. Jennings are alright pickups but they are backups. Chris Conte will be cut before the regular season starts so drafting someone who can start right away would be great. I think they can pick up a running back in the late rounds or even get one undrafted.

    I heard about that kid almost a couple weeks ago. That’s so sad.

  9. chucky Says:

    Yeah, me too. I’m glad he met hero.

    Well guess who has surpassed the Diamondbacks for the worst record in the National League? 11-21, on pace for a 56-win season and watching at least one of the starting pitchers getting dealt at the trading deadline.

    Third year of the Epstein regime and this team somehow looks worse than it did when he got here. Hope the ‘patience’ on waiting for these prospects pays off. We’ll probably get another top-5 prospect in next year’s draft. Gonna be loaded with them.

  11. chucky Says:

    There has been something on my mind for some time now. Supposedly, the plan is for these four or five prospects to develop and then be brought up to the majors, then maybe acquire a couple veteran free agents to compliment these prospects. But what will happen if only one of these hot shot rookies work out? Or none of them? What will be the game plan then. I know there is always a risk, and nothing is guaranteed. But from what I hear, and what so many people seem to believe, these rookies are going to be can’t miss players. I’m wondering what happens if they do miss. Has anybody else thought about that too?

  12. Matt Stairs Superfan Says:

    Considering the following “hot shot prospects”, I’ll believe it when I see it…

    Corey Patterson, Kevin Orie, Bobby Hill, Felix Pie, Matt Murton, David Kelton and any pitcher from 1990 and up who threw 95 mph+.

    Am I forgetting anybody? I am sure I have with all the garbage that we have witnessed!

  13. Cubs Bears Sox Suck Says:

    2 good safeties on the board with Clinton-Dix and Pryor and they take a lower ranked corner. I dont think that was good.

  14. abdallaha92 Says:

    Cubs Bears Sox Suck I don’t really trust Clinton Dix. I personally wanted either Pryor or to trade down and grab either Tuitt or Nix. Hopefully next round Jimmy Ward will be available.

  15. Pie in the Sky Says:

    Fuller was the guy I expected Chicago to take (unless Aaron Donald was available). He’s a versatile guy and I wouldn’t be surprised if he played some safety. Some people had Fuller as the top-rated cornerback.

  16. Fro Dog Says:

    I thought Pryor would have been the better option. Clinton-Dix was scouted as someone who misses tackles in the open field and has the tendency to be in the wrong spot causing blown coverage. The Bears already have a player or two that do that frequently. And who knows. Maybe Pryor isn’t as good as we all were told.

    I know some people are disappointed but go back to last year when many, including myself, were wondering why Emery took Kyle Long and not someone else who was rated higher. I think that turned out pretty well.

    This isn’t the combination of Angelo/Smith running the team anymore guys. Emery and Trestman are actually smart. Let’s all put our faith in these two. It’s working so far.

  17. Fro Dog Says:

    Thoughts on the Bears getting two defensive tackles in a row?

    The first one was Ego Ferguson from LSU. The second was Will Sutton from Arizona State. Sutton is a two-time Pac-12 Defensive Player of The Year and Ferguson had 58 tackles last year in the best conference in the nation.

    Four picks remain with the needs of a linebacker, safety, cornerback and running back still to go.
