    If only we had two first round picks.. Nix and Dix.. helluva first draft what would be.
    I think I'd pick Dix though, we really need a safety, and Nix has injurie history which is a big concern for me as we've dealt with too many first round injuried guys

    I'm indifferent to saftey vs DT. Just get a stud between the two spots. I don't want anything to do with Nix. Injury concerns and dosent fit our current scheme makes me wonder why the intrest in him at all

    I want a stout NT, because we haven't been that great against stopping runs up the middle in a long time, and we have the athleticism at LB to catch up with runs to the outside. I know we had a plethora of injuries to DT, but with Shea moving to SLB and Peppers likely cut, we cannot afford to spare any expense to shore up every position available on the d-line. Hell, when was the last REALLY good NT we had? Ted Washington?

    It's because the Bears don't have a scheme right now. I think most people agree that the defense is in transition at this point.

    I haven't heard enough hype and seen enough Grecian formula to formulate my opinion just yet. Maybe soon the combine, pro-days, team interviews and the whirling dervish of media attention will tell me what I want the bears to do.

    I honestly think the last time I bought the hype on someone as the "savior" of the franchise.......and it actually worked.....was Brian Urlacher. Kiper, McShay and to a lesser degree Mayock are just hype machines who don't realize that the agents that give them their "inside info" are using them to make money.

    My preferences are rarely picked. I won't say what I want now, because those that win the hype war won't be available. I just hope Phil's guy is available at 14.

    As I've said for a while now, Dix has been, and still is my favorite choice by a wide margin. That wouldn't change even if we sign Byrd.

    The drafting of Mosley at LB eludes me ... we are knee deep in LB's to the point that a 3-4 defense is not out of the question.

    we are not knee deep in LB's JJ, OLB's cannot be sub'd in for MLB anymore then a WR can be subbed in for a TE.

    Bostic/Shea/Greene/Briggs none can play ILB. There is not one person on the roster that can play ILB.

    Mosley is projected to be a top ten player in just about every site that I have seen. To get a ILBlike him would be great, and if he was available and we did not pick him I would be very disappointed.

    One of the top ten players will drop to us, I just hope it is a position of need.
