    Why Hageman?: He is one of the best interior defensive linemen available. Hageman's 6-foot-5, 310-pound frame will help the Bears shore up their run defense, and he figures to be a nice complement to veterans Jeremiah Ratliff, Stephen Paea and Nate Collins in the club's rotation. Hageman can also rush the passer, and started 26 games for the Golden Gophers from 2011-13. He has never been hurt. Hageman has experienced multiple off-the-field issues (academic suspension and misdemeanor for disorderly conduct) and reportedly had a difficult childhood. But none of that looks to be terribly alarming. Emery is open to taking players who have supposed character red flags because he believes the organization possesses the necessary amount of stability and leadership.

    If Hageman falls to us I would think he is a lock. One problem we have not though is Dallas is in front of us drafting with the rotation of teams with same records like 4 or 5 teams are rotating, although we had the edge in rd 1, Dallas will have it til rd 6 and they have the same needs as us, they could be a spoiler.

    I'll be surprised if anyone DT related makes it to 51, if it happens more power to them.

    I thought "DT could wait" past 1 because there was so much depth. Wow the story changes quickly.

    story's not changing, the depth is there in round 3 and 4 also, but why reach for a round 3 or 4 guy b/c the run on 2nd round DT's is over?

    I would say the depth isn't as great as predicted if there's no one left worth taking by just the mid-2nd. I don't think that will be the case.

    There are a number of solid DTs left in this draft. I agree we shouldn't reach on anyone. Here's the top-12 DT's in this draft....most are still on the board. I'd even take the 12th guy here in a heartbeat (K. Quarles) but obviously not in the 2nd round.

    Aaron Donald (drafted round 1, 13th pick)
    Louis Nix
    Timmy Jernigan
    Stephon Tuitt
    RaShede Hageman
    Dominique Easley (drafted round 1, 29th pick)
    DaQuan Jones
    Ego Ferguson
    Will Sutton
    Caraun Reid
    Justin Ellis
    Kelcy Quarles

    I like Sutton IF he can stay @ 290lbs or less. I would like it even more if we got him in Rd 3 or 4.

    have you seen this guy? He's a beast compared to the others and almost out preformed everyone but Donald in a few areas.

    This guy is an athlete

    Yeah I've seen him. Don't get me wrong, I like the guy. I think he's an impact player @ 285-290 lbs. If he gets over 300 lbs he loses a lot of that quickness that makes him a special 3T DT imho.

    I'm still hoping for the darkhorse pick of Nix, a huge NT that will force 1x1 on whatever DT is opposite him and I think Houston/Collins/Ratliff will win those 1x1 matchups, and Nix is still good enough to get to a QB vs 1x1 himself.

    won't happen mind you, but I think it'd be fun to watch.

    I'd be happy with Nix. He's another guy that if he can keep his weight under control he can be more than a NT. Good athlete for a huge guy.

    ya weight is the problem, and if his knees are an issue then keeping him under control will be even more of a concern.

    No doubt. But on the other hand IF he keeps his weight in check & stays healthy he's a monster.

    yep one of the few NT's that could actually pressure a qb if you dont' double team him.

    I don't think hagemen/Nix will be there though.

    Neither do I Ric. I just hope we don't reach for a DT in the 2nd due to need. I'm cool with just about any position as long as it's a good "value" pick & the Bears stick to their board. Come on 7pm est.
