    I frankly see almost no chance of a trade down happening the way we would like. Only trade down I would want to see is one like I mocked where we came our ahead due to a guy someone really wanted slipping to 14.

    But I agree Ric Pryor and Jernigan is best case scenario.

    It's a nice menu you got there, Grizz. Hageman (not a big fan of his from what I've read) is probably more likely to be available at #35 than Jernigan but who knows. Crazy things happen every year.

    With any potential trade-down scenario Emery may encounter he's gotta figure that Dallas (#16 pick) is very like to go DL since they've lost Ware & Hatcher this year and Ratliff last. Of course JJ could always do something totally stupid...

    MP, can I be honest IF the Bears want to use the occassional 3-4 front along w/4-3 I think the Bears would target Hagemen over Donald or Jernigan, and then look to get a big fatty NT in the mid rounds to play NT behind Paea in the 4-3 and be the guy that is the 0 in the 3-4. It really depends on what they are planning on doing.

    Yep, from what Ive read Hageman is more of a 3-4 DE than a 4-3 guy. Supposedly he's an athletic freak who's raw technique wise and his lack of college production shows that. He would be a typical Emery type pick ("versatile", high risk/reward trade off) and that kind of scares me a little.

    The Long pick last year was that too. An athletic monster with a thin résumé who could potentially play anywhere on the OL except Center. If Hageman ends up being a Bear, Paul P (whatever his name is) is going to have to "pull a Kromer" coaching-wise to get this guy up to speed quick. We need solid starters/contributors early on.

    I'd be down with that draft but we'd need some luck for Joyner and Purifoy to be around for us in the 2nd and 3rd rounds.

    I think if you're planning on a DT in the 2nd round it's more likely that Jernigan and Hageman will be gone and you'd have to look at guys like A.Johnson and K.Quarels.

    At 51 yes, but at 35 it's possible Hagemen would be there, IF he were to fall at all, and that was the trade down scenerio that Grizz is talking about.

    Both walter football and drafttek had him going between 30-40 so I mocked him there. If he's gone maybe Hageman, maybe quarles but prolly will get someone at a pos of need they slipped. For now, I'll stick with the hope Jernigan falls in this unlikely scenario we manage a trade down.

    Volume 2.0, March 26th (Post FA)
    Rd. 1 (14)-Calvin Pryor. S, UL
    With the signing of Allen we have a flexible group of players at the DL positions. With this in mind a need for a day one lock to start at the 3 tech is not such a pressing need. Pryor can step into either safety role and will likely bump out the lesser of the two between Conte and Mundy. Pryor is more adept to play SS where I personally think we have a bigger weakness so I'm going with Pryor. Pryor and Dix are the clear cut 1 and 2 safeties in this class and both are expected to play at a high level right away. Scouts don't agree who is the number one safety, so you can slot either here. My personal preference is Pryor due to his physical nature that can really help in run support. He has the range, hips, and ball skills to play a deep zone as well as the size and ability to lock up with a slot or TE in short yardage situations. Pryor will likely step in day one and compete at both FS and SS in TC and I expect that he will win one of the jobs. ​

    Rd.2 (51)-Marcus Roberson. CB, UF

    Here is Emery's boom or bust pick (you know he just loves those.) Roberson had a fantastic freshman season for UF but was hampered by an injury last year as well as being suspended. Physical is the single word that describes how Roberson plays, and he had a knack for locking up on an island with the opponents top WR in college where he often preformed well. Some say what is keeping him out of round one is character issues. This stems from a suspension he got last year after an altercation with two LSU WRs. Youtube it if you want, Roberson flat out crossed the line, got tossed and then suspended. Emery seems to have no problem taking on character issues and something about the bears lockeroom seems to curve these issues (AJ, Wilson, Marshall to name a few.) At just under 6'1 Roberson has the size we will likely be looking for to replace Tillman. Some say that Roberson who had a bad final college season will fall to the 2nd day and be a great steal for some team(sounds alot like AJ to me.) ​
    Rd.3 (82)- Ego Ferguson. DT, LSU
    We still need more bodies to add to the DT rotation and mix. Ferguson can fit that bill with great value in rd 3. Ferguson weighed in at 310 at the combine, but his athleticism gives him flexibility to play at either DT spot on our line. Ferguson has a massive frame, but ran a 4.9 at the combine and scouts note his excellent burst and ability to get off the ball. A balanced DT he does not specialize as a pass rusher nor run stuffer, doing both equally well for LSU. Ferguson can be thrown in the mix to compete for playing time in our up in the air rotation. ​
    Rd. 4 (117)-Bryan Stork. OC, FSU
    Most current mocks have Stork back on the rise after FSU's pro day. Lets make no mistake, he ran away with the Remington award this year as college's clear cut best OC. From the words of Winston, he was the unquestioned leader of the offensive unit of the national champion Seminoles. Stork has great technique and handwork is second to none. He is also versatile as he started 6 games at guard, and another 34 at center for the Noles. He will need to add some lower body strength to be able to move the bigger NT's of the NFL. Perfect prospect to groom while Garza finises out his long career here.​
    Rd. 5 (114)-Logan Thomas. QB, VT
    Keeping this pick. If it weren't for Trestman being here, this guy would not be considered. Maybe I'm drinking the koolaide, but since he is here I love this guy with great value in round 5. Two things that need to be understood with Thomas. Number one, he has the natural ability that surpasses anyone in this draft and most years for that matter. Number two, he must improve his decision making ability and can be outright reckless with passes at times. His huge arm leads him to try to force passes, and that will not work in the NFL (sounds familiar huh?) Thomas is a dual threat but at 250lbs he is very tough to bring down and if you let him escape he will gash you. This messes with defensive schemes. We need another guy to at least compete with Palmer and the potential is endless with Tresty having a minimum of 3 years to develop this guy. If he can help Thomas improve his timing and decision making, this could be a great player. Trestman will have to earn his title of QB whisperer here.​
    Rd. 6 (183)-James Morris. ILB, IA
    We can add another ILB to the mix here. Morris was a solid player for Iowa last 2 seasons and comes from a similar system to what we are playing. He can compete in the mix of our young LBs and possible contribute on STs. We need to add bodies to the middle and Morris will be a last resort if we are decimated by injures again at the position. He is a true Mike LB, so will provide value and insurance.
    Rd.6 (191)-Storm Johnson. HB, UCF
    Forte has a ton of miles on him and currently we are razor thin behind him. We need someone to compete with Ford. Johnson is a good all around back including the ability to catch the ball out of the backfield. Storm just about took over UCFs bowl game on his way to almost 200 yards rushing. This guy has potential, but not that much tape so he will likely be available. Storm has a good burst and the size that may allow him to take some of the short yardage carries on long drives to provide fresh legs. Was noted for his blocking ability, that will be a must for any young HB we bring in. Storm and Ford can fight it out for the backup job. ​
