    This may come as a shocker to some, but I actually agree to an extent. Would I take Tuitt over Jernigan? Hell no, would I take Tuitt if he slipped..yeah I would. He can play the 7 or the 3 and that would largely depend on what Houston is best suited for. I have kinda warmed up to the idea of versatility on defense, and if Houston and Tuitt lined up on the same side and could preform their respective roles well then it could be a scary situation.

    Thats how I see it IMO. Now if Nix fell and Jernigan and Tuitt were both off the board I wouldn't hate the pick. That would assume that Nix can stay 315 MAX and can illustrate good burst to stout up our run D.

    I was on board with a pick at 14 for a penetrating DT. Can any of the DT's left that we can get really be a penetrating, dominant DT? I'm not sure they are. If not, do we still take one? I think the DL is sound, but it needs a guy that can penetrate. If we can't get that, then I think we are just getting another guy like we already have.

    For a penetrating, disruptive 3? My favorite is still Quarrles. I wouldn't be opposed to him at 51 if Jernigan, Tuitt were off the board and we are dead set on a DT. I know thats not what the "expert mocks" expect, and some will call it a reach. But regardless of who lined up next to him the man landed 9.5 sacks in the SEC. Nothing to turn your nose up at.

    Not sure he is that big a difference maker (but 9.5 sacks is in fact nothing to turn your nose up at). At this point, I'd be ok with a stud MLB, but of course the guy that we all knew would be a difference maker was long gone even before our first pick (Mack).

    There are still good DT's left, but I expect a rush on them in the first half of the 2nd.

    I agree BIH. If it lines up perfectly for us a guy like Jernigan or Hageman will slip. I would almost gaurentee that if Hageman is there at 51 Emery would jump all over it. But it's the draft and nobody know what will happen.

    Priority 1
    - DT - Obviously priority number 1 is to get a young DT in, with a particular focus on a 3 tech who can disrupt the back field but even a heavier stouter run blocker wouldn't be a bad pick. Ratliff and Collins offer flexibility to play either role

    Consider
    - S - the so called depth is thin but you never know how the Bears rate some of the prospects. There might be a guy with a second round grade who's yet to be drafted
    - LB - replacement for Briggs or MLB
    - Corner - 2 CB in a row would be strange but if you say this is Tillman's last year and you put Fuller in the Nickel you could then have another CB as the replacement for Tillman. It really depends how much you like Frey as a long term prospect

    Emery passed on Dix.
