    I'd give the Bears a solid A.

    And I think you meant Ego *Ferguson*

    I just don't know. It's not a draft that had me jumping out of my chair, yet it could be a REALLY strong draft. I guess I would characterize it more as a draft high on potential moreso than super high performers (other than our first round pick).

    I'm not as underwhelmed as I was but I'd be hard pressed to give it more than a B right now and maybe that squeezes up to a B+ if Ferguson turns out to be a good NT. I expect 6 of the 8 picks to make the team but with the possible exception of Vereen we didn't luck out as well as some teams did. But, this is still Emery's best looking draft so far.

    I feel like he made the team significantly stronger with this draft, and when you combine this with the off-season FA work he did, don't you get the feeling that we are going to be one hell of a solid team this year? If we can just stay healthier this year, we could have a really good season.

    I think Emery deserves an "A" for this one.

    Would like to give it a hard grade other than a B but it just seems too nebulous of a draft with some potential steals, reaches, and attitude concerns.

    I don't think you can give an A this early. After we see how the picks perform you can. Right now I would give a solid B. If the top 4 picks work out like we all hope they will, this draft will go down with the 83 draft as one of the all time great drafts.

    It's way too early to tell. But on paper I'd say it was okay-good. B.

    My only concern is that we didn't draft any linebacker and tight end. Emery fixed the dline but LB is still very weak.

    And who's gonna backup MBennett? Dante "2 catches for 13 yards" Rosario? Fendi "I suck at everything and shouldn't be on the roster" Onobun? Big question marks.

    I'm giving it a B. I don't really like the Fales or Leno pick, would have prefered a TE.

    Sounds about right. I hope Fales turns into something but weak arm and short doesn't sound too good. But he's a fit for the system and that could be what's important. Don't get Leno but I don't know who was there.. woulda preferred a tight end.
