Mock Draft 4/14 [Forte Trade Rumor]
I do not think this would happen, but I thought it would be an interesting debate.
*Trade* The Chicago Bears trade 1 and RB Matt Forte to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for 1 and 4.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers Possibly Looking At Matt Forte? - Tampa Bay Buccaneers : Tampa Bay Buccaneers
1 OT Matt Kalil [USC] 6'7" 306lbs.
The Bears move aggressively to fill the biggest weakness on their team by moving Matt Forte. Jay Cutler cannot reach his potential with J'Marcus Webb as his LT. The Bears move a less valuable position [RB] to fill a more important position of [LT].
2 DE Bruce Irvin [West Virginia] 6'3" 245lbs.
The Bears need pass rush and speed on the outside and while Irvin might not be able to start at his size he can provide the pass rush. Irvin will pair with Idonije to create a complete DE at the LE position.
3 RB LaMichael James [Oregon] 5'8" 200lbs.
After moving Forte the Bears may need another weapon to pair with Michael Bush in the backfield. James can be a Darren Sproles type player that can run, catch and return the ball.
4. WR Jeff Fuller [Texas A&M] 6'3" 223lbs.
The Bears add pass catching depth and size to the WR core. Fuller has a ton of ability, but has regressed this season. If the Bears can get him back to his best they will have a steal.
4. CB DeQuan Menzie [Alabama] 5'11" 200lbs.
More depth for the secondary with the very physical Menzie. You know with an Alabama DB that they are physical and they will hit you both good things in the Cover 2.
5. LB Tank Carder [TCU] 6'1" 237lbs.
The Bears need to add LB depth and Carder is the type of leader that they should be developing at MLB.
6. DT DeAngelo Tyson [Georgia] 6'2" 310lbs.
A thick and explosive player that can provide depth at NT and allow Paea to move over to DT if needed.
7. CB/S Robert Blanton [Notre Dame] 6'1" 200lbs.
More secondary depth with a player that I think will move to FS and provide a big body that can tackle and play deep in the zone.
