    I thought he was a junior and therefore not playing in those games?

    zelezo, you're right he is a JR so he won't. I've read somethings, and while the sports writers and talk show hosts are blasting him, the actual college football guys have him raising on the boards.
    Kiper has him ahead of nix(by 1), ahead of HaHa, and doesn't even have Hagemen in the first round. If guys like Aaron Donald and Hagemen and Truitt are in the 2nd, I think I wouldn't be to upset about getting Clinton-Dix in the first, but expect Emery to prove again he's the smartest guy in the room and take a guy like Pryor CB that is right now projected to be in the mid 20's.

    Ric, I respect you and your opinion. You're confident and stick to your guns. However, I wouldn't take what the draft experts say as Gospel right now. Just like everyone else, they buy into hype, especially towards the end. The rankings are pretty fluid, case in point, Nix was the highest ranked tackle for a long long time.

    If we can get Hageman in the second, I'm gonna be ecstatic. But how I see it and have read, I don't see either he or Jernigan being good value at 14 right now.

    Oh and remember what Bill Walsh said about drafting:
    "Never matters where we pick them, it only
    matters how they play."

    Zel, I'm just going on what I read and hear, the draft, especially w/Emery is a complete and total crap shoot. Which is why I could see them going CB at 14 that projects as a mid 20's guy.

    It's all way to early for anyone to say, the senior games have to be played and the combine/interviews have to happen. But keep this in mind, Emery LOVES combine guys, he'll weight that far more then he'll weight on field production.

    He's an old scout. Scouts are taught to look for athleticism first and then go from there so I can see why. Luckily, I don't think he will fall for a pool jumper.

    Agree
    If you take Ha Ha in the first round you can easily get a real solid DT in the 2nd round. I don't see a safety worth taking in the 2nd or 3rd rounds

    With the injurys we had last year on defense ... pretty much the starting defense ...

    whos getting better from injurys ? That has to be a key issue.

    Melton ? Wooten ? If these guys are good to go for traing camp ...

    do we spend draft picks on those spots ?

    What would a healthy 2013 defense look like in 2014 ?

    Yes I know we have drafted 50'000 safetys during the Angelo/Lovie era ...

    but now we may need to draft safetys in the Emery/Trestman era.

    I'd go right for the fuckin jugular this time ... no bullshit 5-7 draft pick afterthoughts.

    DT round one.

    Safety round two ... right here. Find us the ten year Pro-Bowler Emery.

    Round three ? Fuck if I know.

    One of the reasons I wouldn't be to worried about when you get a DT/DE or anything is is this type of mock:

    http://walterfootball.com/draft2014.php
    1) Chicago Bears: Darqueze Dennard, CB, Michigan State
    2) ChiChicago Bears: Aaron Donald, DT, Pittsburgh
    3) Chicago Bears: De'Anthony Thomas, RB, Oregon
    4) Chicago Bears: Chris Smith, DE, Arkansas



    Now I wouldn't take a RB at 3rd, QB or TE are the only O players I would take in this draft. But what you see is the team fills it's DL and DB needs, and still has 3 more picks to grab a S or 2 and another CB.

    If Dennard is that good and Peanut moves to safety then thats a route to take and DT can be had with the second.

    What kind of TE Ric? A blocker or a catcher ? Cant a blocker be picked up in FA or after the draft ?
