    Im going to wait until after the combine, but if Ha-Ha turns out to be a safety stud, then theres no way we pass him up if he's available. The Seahawks have show how important a secondary can be.

    But, if he's not available, (or if he has a sub-par combine), then we should definitely go after DL, it all starts with the trenches.

    (i would prefer Safety, because DL FAs are easier to come by then quality Safeties, so we can probably address some of the DL via FA)

    HaHa, Mosely, Jernigan/Hagemen, Pryor, in that order imo until after FA/combine.

    I am not a big fan of Nix because of the knee injury last year and the weight issues he has.

    I'll say Dix just because I will not feel comfortable until I am sure I won't be seeing Conte next year.

    Mike Brown, 2005.

    Which is why I'm hoping that Dix gets drafted.

    Haha's taller and bigger then Mike Brown was in college also, not sure who's faster, seems like Dix could likely put the shadow of Brown as the best Bears safety in recent memory to bed. Considering you can get a guy like Anthony Johnson or Ego at DT in the 2nd-3rd rounds and a guy like George Eko as DE in the 3rd-4th rounds seems like a solid case to try and get an actual legit DB in the first.

    Still wouldn't cry if they got a guy like Jernigan or Hageman.

    I have a feeling one or the other will be gone.

    I think we need to fix the safety position, because it has been a long time since we have had a solid safety that can make a play on the ball and still tackle.
