    LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- The Chicago Bears wrapped up the NFL draft on Saturday by taking Boise State offensive tackle Charles Leno Jr. with their final pick, No. 246 overall. My take: Although most of the spots -- including reserve roles -- are already set along the offensive line, the Bears could afford to use a pick on a developmental player such as Leno, who has impressive measurables and a thorough body of work in college as a three-year starter at Boise State.

    We got lucky with no injuries on OL last year.

    So this offseason we've brought in a veteran Centre. Still kept our back up tackle in Britton. And drafted a guy with good potential in the 7th round. Should keep the competition high and keep developing players. Can never have enough quality OL.

    And that ends James Brown's run as the OL prospect on the bench. Can't say I'm excited about this pick either, but at least we are taking a flyer on another OL with actual talent still at the position. This was one weird draft.

    For an Emery draft, you first have to pick everyone you like or want. Throw those names right out. Then assign the rest of the players Scrabble letters, shake up the bag, and that's the draft.
