    The other one went splitsville. Now where were we ? Oh yeah ... FA and the draft.

    Next to last ranked Defense. Everyone knows what is needed.

    let me save this thread for you JJ:

    FA:
    Cutler killed the cap so I'm not going to name many names, but most guys are not going to be name worthy anyways:
    2DT(one being collins and then one of the two(ratliff/melton)
    2 DE(one being Wootton) the other, whoever
    2 MLB: DJ Williams and whoever
    2 cb's whoever
    2 safeties whoever
    1 qb McCown
    1 TE Fendi, he's cheap and they like him, they'll pick up another in the draft)
    1T, Britton
    1G/C Boggs
    FA Longsnapper
    15 nothing special FA's

    Team before the draft:
    Cutler/McCown
    Forte/Ford
    Bushrod/Mills/Britton/JLong/Slauson/KLong/Brown/Boggs
    DaOD/Fendi
    BM/AJ/MWill/TTolliver
    Wootton/Bass/FA/Paea/Collins/Ratliff/FA
    Briggs/Bostic/Shea/Greene/DJ/FA
    Jennings/FA/FA
    Conte/FA/FA
    FA longsnapper
    K Gould
    P Buttheads son/Podless

    Draft:

    14 DE Truitt
    2nd DT Arron Donald
    3rd TE Richard Rogers
    4th CB Aaron Colvin
    5th S Isaiah Lewis
    6th CB Andre Hall
    6th S Dezmen Southward

    I see the team trading back at least once, but I really don't know when/where so I'm not going to bother.
    UFDA: WR's, RB's, TE's, P's

    Team after draft:
    QB: Cutler/McCown/UDFA
    RB: Forte/Ford/UDFA
    Bushrod/Mills/Britton/JLong/Slauson/KLong/Brown/Boggs
    DaOD/Rogers/Fendi
    BM/AJ/MWill/TTolliver/UDFA/UDFA
    Wootton/Truitt/Bass/FA/Paea/Collins/Ratliff/Donald
    Biggs/Bostic/Shea/Greene/DJ/FA
    Jennings/FA/FA/Colvin/Hall
    Conte/FA/FA/Lewis/Southward
    FA Longsnapper
    K Gould
    P Buttheads son

    And we have a few positions open to fill via FA/UDFA depending how how teams cut

    1 I think it all depends on what D they want to run and what they do in FA. Right now I'd go BPA of DT/DE/CB-S, maybe even MLB, call me crazy I know it's not a top need, but you don't find good MLB's in the 2nd and later rounds(see Bostic). The elite athletes needed to play MLB are normally gone in the mid round 1st rounds.

    I'd take a shot at HaHa, but I'd leave all the CB's alone.

    Thanks RIC for the help ... hey Bro I found this out ...


    ESPN NFL draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr. revealed his first mock draft on Wednesday, with Chicago using its first-round pick to select Florida State’s Timmy Jernigan at No. 14.
    The move would certainly make sense if Jernigan, widely regarded as the draft’s best defensive tackle, is still available because he fits Chicago’s scheme. But the question for Bears general manager Phil Emery might be whether Jernigan “transcends scheme” as he so often likes to say.
    A junior, Jernigan led Florida State with 11 tackles for lost yardage last season and is considered one of the draft’s premier run stuffers. Kiper ranks Jernigan at No. 10 on his Big Board, while Todd McShay of Scouts Inc. lists him as No. 7 in his top 32.
    McShay wrote this about Jernigan:
    Jernigan performed well in the Seminoles' BCS title game victory over Auburn, recording nine tackles, although he appeared gassed at times in the fourth quarter and had to come out of the game for a stretch. He is a classic 3-technique with good first-step quickness and good range versus the run, and is a very disruptive player.

    Where we pick at the most may not fall to us.

    On the otherhand what Halas Hall does in FA may make that a moot point.

    Whose out there in FA at DT ?

    True. But Jernigan? He was gassed for that whole last drive by Auburn. He's been widely criticized for that. I see him dropping. Not that I'd be angry with getting him, but I've seen huge differences in his stock.

    Jernigan is going to play in, I would guess, a few post games and then have the combine to prove his conditioning, if he comes into those out of shape and gassed, then he'll drop.
