    Not from the area, but who are these guys, aside from terrible interviews?

    "What is the story behind your nickname?"
    "That's my real name"

    Who does that little research before an interview?

    One of those rare instances where coming out early isn't a terrible thing. If anything it's a sign of great character. I think he's ready to grind and put in the work required of an NFL player. He wants to provide for his family, sounds like a mature dude who will do what it takes to succeed. As I said earlier.. we just got first round talent in all three rounds. That's my kind of start to a draft. Lets finish strong and hopefully find a gem or two buried in these later rounds.

    Idiots who want to be the center of attention. Look at the Super Bowl Media Day

    Makes me think I'm in the wrong line of work when I listen to some of these questions. I could come up with waaay better questions that are.. you know.. actually relevant to football.

    If you listen to the Bears scout break him down, he said that when he was there the HC walks away from the field for some reason, and Ego has the guys still on the field running drills, and all the players and coaches said he'll put in any amount of work to learn and do what he needs to do.

    With his potential and that work ethic I see good things on the horizon. He'll have a C on his chest before we know it.

    I agree Chi66, I would've liked to see Nix there, but I fully understood the Ego pick, he's got a ton of potential to be a stud NT. And he's got all the reason in the world to want to put in the work to reach that potential.

    Good thing Suttons conference call said nothing about Ferguson's mother then.

    The more I hear about him the more excited & proud I am to have this kid represent the Bears. Young men with good character are getting harder & harder to find. I have to say I'm really pumped about our draft so far. Hopefully Emery & Co keep it going today.

    ya the kid has all the mental and althletic capabilities in the world, and he wasn't in any shape way or form a reach...unless you're under the impression that the team is still going to run Lovie's Cover who D, which they aren't, I know it's hard to give it up and accept not knowing but some have to.
