    I don't know how many are familiar with this scouting site/service, but Ourlads is a pretty well respected site and their Chief scout contributor, Dan Shonka is also well regarded and has been interviewed several times on NFL network. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if Dan is interviewed once or twice during the draft broadcast.

    I find their latest mock to be VERY interesting, not only regarding the Bears selections, but also many of the others and the positions they think some of these guys will go in.

    Now, let's face it, those of us that have been watching the draft for many years understand that the draft is a crap shoot; we understand that many on-line mocks are the products of wannabe scouts, but we also know that with a few exceptions (someone always drops and there is always a run on various positions), the top talent is the top talent and the needs of the various teams. So with that said, there are some very interesting names in this 2 round mock, especially given where those names are.

    Very interesting. They have us selecting Tuitt even with Dix, Donald and Pryor available. Then they have us using the second on a RB. So with the first two picks they think we are going DE, RB. hmmmm

    You know the amount of shit fits thrown if the 1st goes like that. I can see it though, big fast athletic guy that plays multiple positions, sounds exactly like a Emery pick.
    2nd round would throw me for a loop, I just cannot see going that way when what's left on the board is left on the board to go there, that is beyond a luxury pick at that point w/those 2 guys still there.

    There isn't enough valium in the US to cure the lugubrious nature that would be this, and many other, Bears boards if the 1st 2 rounds went this way.

    Not only that, but Deone Bucannon picked at 13 ahead of Pryor and Clinton-Dix. There are several other real head scratchers. We could see a lot of surprises this year. If so, I just wonder if part of the problem is the volume of draft sites that just copy each other rather than provide real independent opinions.

    I can possibly see Tuitt. But he is coming off an injury and with the other guys still on the board Emery would have to have him pretty damn high on his list. I agree... the RB in round two just seems stupid when you have a secondary that needs help yesterday. IDK. I never say it couldn't happen because every time I think something just can't go a certain way, it does. I'll just say that it would surprise me.

    4d, that and many of them are just rehasing the same recycled previous drafts they've done before w/out really looking at how the teams are changing their opinions.

    I agree BiH, I mean a foot inj doesn't bother me like a knee would, but think about how many have said Hagemen is a "emery pick" well Tuitt falls into that same category.

    yeah... saw that too. IDK. Again, these are just ones man's thoughts. Regardless of how well that man knows football, he is not Emery and all of the previous 13 guessas as to who is off the board are not going to be right. I just look at these mocks as entertainment value. I put no stock in them at all.

    You are right. That involves work and quite frankly, they are not paid to put in that kind of time. They are paid to write.

    So I guess you're just using this site for entertainment as well. So you put no stock in our opinions? Look, I'll not be used as a toy for your pleasure Mr. Houston. I'm no prostitute that you can just come here and play with for your amusement. I demand respect.

    OK, I need to go have a good cry before meeting Butka to rub nipples.

    Nail on the head my brother, nail on the head. I gotta say though, his board is giving me some good laughs lately. I just hope they don't turn to tears on May 8, and 9th...and 10........and 11th.

    This is...interesting. I just don't see Tuitt if Donald, Dix and Pryor are there. Personally I think that we would live to regret that pick, but I'm no scout nor is anyone here. This whole waiting an extra 2 weeks till the draft just have me to the point where I am ready to sit back and enjoy the ride come a week from tomorrow. I would say angry, but very weary if the draft went like this. I'm willing to give whoever Emery drafts a chance but if we passed on those 3 and Tuitt wasn't a big time player from the get go I'm sure myself and most on here would end up pissed come November.
