    Bear 40, it'd be hard not to take Mosely at 14, the Bears need ILB depth and a future starter and he is both of those.

    But again If Pryor or Nix, Donald, Jernigan and Mosely are all on the board it's going to be a tough call.

    I seriously doubt it and if he was it would certinaly put a wrench in our decision. There are mixed reports and some I've read say he may be another better suited OLB than MLB in the pros. We already have one of those but I'm not sure how much of that is true because I didn't see much Bama football last year. DT and both safeties are still a much more glaring need and for now we can't rule out Bostic after one year of playing on a god awful defense. MLB may be a need we have to kick down the road.

    I think the real quandary would be Khalil Mack being available at 14. I don't think it likely. But draft days can be unpredictable.

    Mack, imo, is to small at sub 250 to play DE in the NFL, and not sure the team needs another OLB as Shea and Bostic are both looking at future SAM/WILL duties, not to mention Greene.

    Could be wrong, Mack might be one of those exceptions at DE that are great edge rushers that is just strong and powerfull enough to handle NFL T's even if they are "small", they are out there and if he is one, then you'd have to take him.

    I see Mack playing as an OLB in a 4-3 as well.

    I think Mack falling to 14 would be phenomional for us, best case scenario. Not for the purpose of taking him but baiting a team to give us a lobsided deal in order to move down a bit. In the 18-26 range I'm confident that we would get a pick between Pryor and Jerrigan with an outside shot at Donald and CD...and net some nice picks in the process....We would just have to be damn sure that whoever we took could still make a day one impact.

    Volume 1.5 (Trade down scenario), March 17th
    Cleveland Trades Pick number 26 and 35 to Chicago for Pick number 14 and 116

    26(700)+35(550))=1250
    14(1100)+116(62)=1162
    Rd. 1 (26) Calvin Pryor. SS, UL
    We take Pryor with our first pick after the trade with Cleveland. Pryor will come in form day one and be our SS likely. Pryor excelled in college and bring an explosive presence to our defensive backfield. Emery has noted that he wants toughness and this is just what this kid can bring. Pryor showed the ability to do it all at the SS position and has range to cover the middle of the field as well as the skills to lock up on a TE in short yardage and redzone situations. Pryor is an excellent run supporter and will be huge in complementing our LB corp when Briggs and DJ are gone, this guy has a knack for coming up and laying the boom on Rbs and Wrs alike. Pryor is a old school SS who loves to lay wood on anyone he gets a shot at, remarkably at UL he was able to abide by the new rules and land huge, LEGAL hits.​


    Rd.2 (35) Timmy Jernigan. DT, FSU

    The advantage of this trade down is we can double dip and get a guy who will likely start at our 3 tech from day one. Jernigan showed excellence from day one and was the real anchor of the front 7 for the Seminoles this year. at 300 lbs he is stout against the run, but showed the pass rush ability to allow him to play a 3 tech. If you are going to sum him up into one word, it would be disruptive. His explosiveness allows him to play behind the offensive line and was able to pitch a tent in the offensive backfields in college. Jernigan slips to round 2 because of Donald coming on big in the SR bowl combined with questions about his conditioning in the national championship game. There are sources close to FSU that suggest that he was actually injured with a rib injury in that game, but nobody knows for sure. Either way we likely have just added a 2nd defensive starter.
    Rd. 2 (51) Keith McGill. CB, UTAH
    McGill is big. At 6'3 215 he will be able to be Tillman's understudy and will be able to cover the big WRs down the road. Size is important when we go CB hunting this year because Jennings is just too small to cover big guys like megatron. Mcgill is a small school guy and can compete with Frey for the NB job this year while he prepares to take over for Tillman. In college he showed good ball skills and has a diverse skillset to fit any scheme we run. Most close to the university say this guy is a "first guy in, last guy out" type of guy and should help him develop quickly. ​

    Rd. 3 (82) Zach Mettenberg. QB, LSU
    Here is our likely backup qb who may have to fill in for a Cutler injury. Mettenberg has the size and other measurables that Trestman likes. He can make any throw on the field and you can't sleep on him slipping a sack and taking off with it. In my opinion this is the perfect player for Trestman to work with and become our guy down the road. He did very well against elite SEC talent, and most agree will be able to transition to the pro game.
    Rd. 5 (114)- Adrian Hubbard. DE, Bama
    We add another big school DE to the DL Mix. Hubbard has the size to play in our scheme, and did respectable at bama over the course of a few championship seasons. We need more guys to work in at the still up in the air position of DE opposite of Houston. Here is a late round potential pick. We hit a home run in rd 5 last year so why not do it again?​

    Rd. 6 (167)-Jack Tyler. ILB, VT
    We can add another ILB to the mix here. What I like about Tyler is he is a smart player with an NFL body. All sources close to him say his work ethic is outstanding. Tyler can always compete in the mix at MLB and develop for when the DJ bandaide wears out. ST player without a doubt and some upside at a position of need for depth? What more can you ask for in the late rounds.​

    Rd. 6 (175) Corey Linsley. OC, OSU
    Here we can find value at OC late in the draft. Linsley comes from a successful bid at OSU to backup Garza this year. Boggs may not be the answer and Linsley will fight it out with him in camp for a roster spot and the backup job. Nobody really knows if Garza can repeat his decent season last year and if his age will catch up with him. Injuries for an older player are always a concern, so lets shore up the backup spot.​
    UDFAs: DT,S,RB,OC

    I like it but Jernigan is and will be a first-round draftee.

    I was just working my trade down scenerio but lost connection at work. :)

    If the team could trade back and grab Pryor and Jernigan that is an A++++++++++++++++++++++ draft even if Emery flubs the rest of it.
