    "But the club cannot afford to ignore a couple of areas on offense, one of them being center."

    Richburg is projected to go in the 3rd round.

    I could easily see them going w/a C or G(depending on if they want Slauson to play C), TE and or QB in the 3-6th, maybe even WR or RB in the 6th depending on how the draft goes. The O is not perfect, far from it, and FA will be used to shore up the D as much as the draft will.

    On this I agree fully, our d sucks and needs major help, we know this and it's true. We cannot forget how we got into that 5 year o line debacle up to this season. I like looking center from 2nd-6th and if and when we see value at a given spot, pull the trigger. We cannot do what ja did and assume since it was good last year it can be ignored. Injuries and age happen and we have to be prepared because a bad line would mean a bad offense and no matter what we do there's no way Tucker's boys are going to keep us in games.

    Garza is old and bad.

    Well if we draft a center (3rd round) or later thats fine then. Boggs will be gone as he's too undersized to be a OG. I think they'll just keep Boggs, dump Garza and bring in some competition as Kromer has a track record for developing OC's.

    Frankly, I've been watching for a new Center in the draft since a year or two before Kreutz left. As much work as our Defense needs, we need a new Center with some "butt" (as my old football coach used to say). I would love Swanson, but I would be just fine with the Richburg kid in the 3rd. Given the derth of talent in this draft, I would not be surprised if he is still there for us in the 3rd, but any later would be a stretch.

    Center is a tough position for a rookie to start and play well, butwe must get the future on the roster.

    Slauson was signed rather quickly so maybe they have vision of him taking over.

    Kromer likes the center of the line to be talented and strong. I think Slauson would make a great center.

    Center can take a back seat to a DEFENSE ranked 31fst. Fuck that shit up front.

    We can go Center when we have drafted or FA a DEFENSIVE LINE.

    All of that other shit is a PIPE DREAM about WR-RB-TE-OL-QB.

    Are you guys watching the same BEARS team as me ?

    THE FUCKING DEFENSE FLAT OUT STONE OUT WENT AWAY.

    Theres no fuckin way in HELL you go from 5th against the RUN to 31frst ...

    in ONE season.

    Theres some shit going on here ... we dont know about it.

    Therein lies the mystery.

    Need a new center for sure, but we also need a defense. FA is going to tell us so much. However as it currently stands, I wouldn't take a center before 4th round. Need DT, Safety, DE and CB before center imo

    What do you think of Bryan Stork (FSU)? I've seen some of his film (youtube clips) and he looks pretty good to me. And I think he will be available in the 3rd round.
