    Here is what Prisco had to say about our draft:

    "Chicago Bears: The Bears drafted a lot of players that fit their needs on defense. I really liked what they did. First-round corner Kyle Fuller was the best CB in this class in my mind. Following that up with two defensive tackles who have really high ceilings was smart. Phil Emery continues to impress as Bears GM."

    ya this was by far his best overall draft, there is very little to complain about, and if the most people have to complain about is the 6th-7th round guys, then congrats to the GM

    Lets hope our picks pan out over the years and not become injured or busts.

    some will inevitably bust out or be lost to inj, but hopefully a few late round guys step in and make it to help w/that toll.

    There are some quality UDFA's out there so hopefully the Bears can land some decent guys.

    37 underclassman didn't get drafted, that's not including seniors so should be a big influx of young potential guys for PS's around the league.

    It seems to me that Emery drafted for the "D" the same way he did for the "O" last year. Good job Phil !

    No one will know until next year.

    However, he is filling our needs. That's something the past regime hasn't filled every need. They would touch some of the need, but they would draft a good player regardless on whether we needed him. A lot of teams don't like to pass on a star player.

    Phil is doing a good job and is hitting everything, good players and filling needs.

    I'd like to add that there will also be another round of FA once the camp cuts get under way and some of those may be for cap reasons as opposed to being lower tier players.

    There's that also, I'm hoping they can improve their S and LB squad through that OMC

    My thoughts exactly Ric. Emery may think that there will be better talent in FA at the safety position so why waste a pick when he can fill the need anyway.

    They have several UDFA they have committed to. Hopefully one of them can play SS.
