    I would be ecstatic if we drafted Pierre Desir in the 4th. Bears fans would probably stroke out if we drafted two CB's in this draft though.

    THIS. Not to mention this makes Emery 3 for 3 on drafting someone not entirely on the radar (even though Emery working him out at his own campus was a pretty good hint to some of us), so it's pretty obvious that the dude has faith in his draft strategy, and after last year, he's earned the benefit of doubt on lesser known players.

    The only thing that scares me is that when he mentioned getting a CB to turn into a safety, he was clear that Fuller is going to stay at his drafted position, SO we know that our GM has been at least mostly honest in stating that there's a lack of talent in the secondary.

    At this point, I hope we draft another CB in the 2nd round, because it's doubtful we make a trade up for Nix

    I think we need to go DT in the 2nd but there isn't the 3-tech there that many are looking for. Personally I think we should go with either Nix (if he's still there) or Daquan Jones to play NT. A dominant NT will give us more scheme versatility with Ratcliff playing the 3-tech on 1st and 2nd down and then Houston coming in beside him on passing downs with Young rushing from the outside. We could also easily switch to a 3-4 front with Houston/NT/Ratcliff or Collins up front with young and McClellin coming off the outside.

    Head over to draftbreakdown.com and watch some tape on DaQuan Jones, the dude is a monster! Constantly doubled and still creates havoc.

    For those still looking a safety my 2nd ranked Free Safety is still available in Marqueston Huff!

    Terrance Brooks interests me. Watching all the games, he was a playmaker at FSU who seemed to be always around the ball. Only decision that must be made is weather he is a tweener or he's just very versatile and can do multiple things well (much like Fuller IMO)

    I wonder how much it would cost the Bears to move up. Just too much 1st round talent still available

    Yeah, there's a lot of DTs on the board for us, but there's also a lot of competition for those DTs already ahead of us (not to mention those active teams who will look to jump ahead). There's a ton of players all over the field still on the board who I really like, so no reason to home in and trade up, IMHO, unless the fruit is very ripe.

    Targeting specific positions in each round is not how this is done, nor should it be. There are several positions of need for this team and the best guy up in one of those positions when we get there should be the pick. I think there is a better than even chance that a real stud Offensive player will be there (especially RB), and if so, it would not surprise me if we go that direction. Obviously we have more need on the defensive side of the ball, but you can't bypass real talent and real value if it falls to you. Well, you can, but it's hard to build an actual "winning" team that way.

    I do have my favorites. If Hageman is there, I would love to grab him and I'd be thrilled with Will Sutton. I really like Chris Borland at MLB. Stanley Jean-Baptist has caught my eye as well, and if Hill is there at RB, I would not be disappointed at all.

    These are just MY favorites, but there are many others that will help this team, and a guy like Telvin Smith would make me curious as to what we're going to be doing with our defense. Could be a fun experiment.

    I said a long time ago here that SJB was my third favorite safety prospect in this draft - that hasn't changed. He and McGill are terrific conversion candidates that fans shouldn't be up in arms about converting whatsoever. Hell - even Watkins, Aikens and Desir bring the stuff you look at in NFL free safeties. I won't let Hardin sour me to this idea, and I hope most keep an open mind about it because we could be looking at a lot of big upside athletes that probably should have been playing S in college but potentially got held back at the more important CB position for the coaches' sake.

    No Jernigan, seems like a bust.
