    I'd love to see us draft this guy. Of course I'm like a kid in a candy store right now with the upcoming draft. I want one of everything :-)

    He won't be there at 14, but I'd be thrilled if he were.

    I wouldn't mind Ealy early, I wouldn't mind going someone like Kareem Martin later in the draft, damn near the same size, as long as it's not another tweener DE/OLB I'll be happy.

    I think he would be a great pick @ 14. We need a young Julius Peppers, as does everyone else, but maybe this kid could come close. Sign Michael Bennett & put this kid on the other side & things would be looking up!

    Of course, like 99, I also want the top DT, FS, SS, CB & LBs!

    From what I've seen, he looks in the Aldon Smith/DeMarcus Ware mold----a great pick if it pans out that well. Frankly, I think Emery whiffed badly on McClellen with Chandler Jones sitting there 2 picks later. Sometimes the obvious pick is the right pick. I'm not sure what they didn't like about Jones---the guy was a beast & I just didn't see that much in Shea M. My reaction at the time was "Phil, I sure hope you know what you're doing". Sometimes these GMs just plain outsmart themselves. .Just for the fun of it, wouldn't it be funny if some team were to sign recently released Richie Incognito & then draft Michael Sam? That should keep the media occupied.

    Thinking Incognito might be scared Sam would take him up on his gestures, not to mention Incognito can not afford any more bad press. Had to respond to that though.

    I was planning on responding in general and I to would like to see Ealy as a Bear. He has more upside then people in the second rd. Primarily Trent Murphy or Scott Crichton. The question I have though is his upside paired with a 2nd rd DT like long shot Aaron Donald, more likely Will Sutton, Ego Ferguson, and Daquan Jones worth more than going DT in first and getting a Jernigan or Hageman and DE like those previously mentioned. If Donald available it would be a great choice, undecided otherwise but I like Daquan Jones as my fatty in the middle.

    Saw another that predicted him to be tagged.
