    Several Draft boards have him as a top 10 pick and I think it was bleacher report that had an article about how we need to draft the best available player on Defense. I like the concept but hate missing out on one of the top DT or DE's which I believe is more pressing. Even if we resign Melton we need a DE, even if we keep Peppers on a reduced deal we need another DT and DE. The level falls off after Ealy at DE, and we all know the DT's Jernigan, Donald, Hageman.

    First of all, NONE of those DL's are guaranteed to be the answer; no one in the draft is. Second, it all depends on what we manage to find in FA, so if we fill Immediate needs on the DL, then we can go elsewhere in the draft. It also depends on if we are or are not going to a hybrid system, which we have not had to consider before. I have seen Mosley going anywhere from top 10 to all the way down to the mid 20's, so he could easily be there for us.

    Ultimately there are any number of ways to improve our Defense, and it doesn't necessarily have to start with one of those D-Linemen. It might start with Mosley.

    Is he fit to be a MLB? From what I've heard he suits ILB or OLB better than MLB. I would still prefer DT/DE/S/CB over him unless he can play MLB

    if ANY D top 10 prospect falls I would want the team to grab them. if ANY top 10 O falls, I hope they trade back and an extra pick and still get one of the top D players.

    Mosley could fill a position of need.
    While I agree that it would be hard to pass on Nix or Hageman, Mosley could have a bigger impact.
    The reality is that if they are going to consider Bostic as a WLB or SLB, then we do not have any MLBs on the team.

    Most sites do not indicate a difference between a ILB and a MLB, Walterfootball only has them listed as ILBs.

    I keep reminding myself that Emery and our scouting department probably have these players evaluated differently than the sites us fans use to grade players (ESPN, NFP, CBS, Walter Football, etc). We may see a guy (the fans think) is top-10 fall to us, when in reality Emery and our scouting department may not see him that way. We (me included) may think Emery is "reaching" on a guy, when in reality they have the guy graded out as a solid pick at that particular draft slot. They have a ton more information on these guys than the people at ESPN (or whomever).

    I agree that Emery and his staff do this for a living and they have access to better information, but Emery still needs to prove that he can pick defense.

    On a slightly related note- If Jernigan/HaHa are gone when the Bears pick, I think there are a couple of players that will be available later in the round or early in the second that would be good pickups (mostly b/c they are personal fav's) Dee Ford from Auburn at DE, probably be available when we pick in the first, and maybe (doubtful, but maybe) will be there in the second. He might not be better than Clowney, which he claims, but he is pretty damn good. Kony should also be available in the first, and would be a solid pick imo. Also, Kyle Van Noy from BYzoo looks to be sliding a little at the combine, but I would love to see him in a Bears uni.


    Just looking at CBS sports rankings, and their rankings just screwed up my entire post lol. They have Ford above Jernigan and right after Ealy and Haha. I feel like Angelo, thinking I am smarter than everybody else, just to find that I am actually behind the curve.

    Look for a pool jumper.
