    As far as I can tell:

    DE: Houston, Scott, Bass, Washington, Lane
    DT: Ratliff, Paea, Collins

    SAM: McLellin
    Mike: Williams, Bostic
    Will: Briggs, Greene

    CB: Jennings, ???
    NB: Frey, Hayden
    SS: ?????
    FS: Mundy, Conte

    I think we need veteran starting level players at DT, DE, SS and CB and then to pretty much hit up the same positions in the draft again to let the talented rookies compete for spots with some veterans. We've got the in house guys to fill most of the needs if we cut Peppers and brought back Wootton, Melton and Zac Bowman.

    Will Wootton and Melton be the right price or are there better alternatives? And who are the reasonably priced veteran DB's on the market?

    We need a 3 first and foremost. That could be had at 14 but also so could Pryor who is a model SS. Should be interesting.

    You're not drafting Pryor at 14.

    We need to get a DT, the better the pass rush and pressure on the qb from the d-line the better the chances the secondary can make interceptions.
    A cornerback and safety can be gotten in the second round or later, of course this might change depending on how the players are coming off the board the Bears may have targeted to get.

    I'm more saying with the rest of FA before or after the draft. I mean as it stands right now who's our SS and who's our second CB? Even with if we took them with first and second round picks you can't expect rookies to start with no competition or decent back ups. We need at least some veteran guys to come in and do a job just like Slauson did on the reworked offense.

    I completely agree, was just mentioning other options. I have best the drub for the crucial 3 tech at 14 all off season. I just also know emery is a bit erratic with our first rounders so him falling in love with a guy like Pryor wouldn't shock me. Bottom line, the 3tech need trumps any DB IMO but loon at all the dts we just recently signed. It makes me nervous.
