    I like Pryor, he seems like a real Bear - nasty.
    Donald and Ward would be great too

    Just not in the first round, Bears need to go DT first then S or CB.......it all starts up front, games are won in the trenches.

    Akuma, we all missed it, but in a recent presser Emery stated he wants to see Allen, Young, Ratliff and Houston out on the field at the same time, and it's going to be up the coaches to figure out how to best do it and how often; and there are multiple sources stating that Houston is going to be the pass rushing DT and Young the pass rushing DE.

    If that's the case then the need for a DT is very low, and both DB's are higher, could be BS, and that's very possible, but it's not out of the question that the DL is all but set w/it's starters.

    Pryor's style of play reminds me a of Troy Polamalu's play. Hits hard. Plays with all-out passion. Intimidating. Smart. Nose for the ball. I've never cared much for the Steelers, but when I do watch one of their games I'm always impressed by 1 guy - Polamalu. And over the years we've seen the guy just take over games for the win. This is what a good safety can do for your defense. This is what a great safety can do for your team.

    I'm not saying Pryor is TP, but he is that kind of player. He would would not only be a great safety, but also make the players around him better too.

    Troy is 5'10 207, he's obviously to small to play in the NFL, I'm stunned he even got drafted or stuck around....8o

    LOL. Good point. FWIW, he's a tiny bit over 5'10" .......he's almost the same weight and height of Pryor. What they can never measure in players like this is their heart. The guy plays the game the way it was intended to be played. All out, take no prisoners. And I don't see Troy P. getting fined a lot. Most of these guys are smart enough to adjust their game - and still play at a high level, and with heavy-hitting.

    BTW, Troy Polamalu was drafted at #16 of the first round. It's not too high if you truly believe the guy is a game-changer player.

    Guys that make a WR scurred to catch the ball are as important now as ever, and it's harder and harder to do so if he can do it at this level I would love to have him on the team.

    With the rotation that the Bears currently have at DT with Collins, Houston, Ratliff, Idonije, and Paea we don't need to draft a DT with the #14 pick. The position can be fortified in the 2nd round or later.

    A game-changing CB or S like Gilbert or Pryor are a far bigger need at this point.

    I think Gilbert will be long gone (as will Clinton-Dix) before the #14 pick. That's why I believe that Pryor is the pick in the 1st round for the Bears.

    Pryor isn't just a meatheaded big hitter/penalty machine like Brandon Meriweather. He is a smart football player who can step up and cover the run, is tough enough to take on TEs, and is good in coverage. He can also create turnovers too. His big hitting ability is also an asset because it will strike fear in opposing receivers.

    BiM's, unless all 3 qb's go in the first 14, you are correct no way Dix and Gilbert make it, and possibly not Donald or Pryor. thats why the team is also brining in other guys to talk to them.

    And I agree I think JABF's comparison of TP is solid.
