    That got me thinking that having a Dick Jauron type interior line would be the best thing for us, especially with our linebacker personnel

    I rather take the chance to move back.
    Moving back can get the Bears
    Stephon Tuitt and Aaron Donald
    That's two very good guys in the middle. Then the Bears can sign a solid DE

    MD, right now I have heard a guy that is scoring the middle to back of this draft higher then any in decades, he said that last year he could barely find guys to even give a draftable grade to in the 7th, and right now, b/c of all the underclassmen declaring, he's got far more then 7 rounds of draftable players. Teams are going to be able to find really good UDFA in this draft, let alone guys in the 3rd/4th.

    I don't know if they'll trade out of 14, depending on who's there, but I do see them trying to trade back at somepoint.

    trading down would give us additional pick later for depth of the roster and still staying in the 1st to get a good DL player or Saftey.

    It all starts in the trenches, so DT or DE would be a smart move in the first.

    Henry that would be BIG TED WASHINGTON and KEITH TRAYLOR ... weve never had better then that since.

    Washington got a S.B. ring after we let him go to N.E.

    Thats if they are there.

    When do we decide that in order to win we must take B.P.A. for our needs when our draft pick comes up ?

    Without trading down ? Theres two sides to trading down ...

    This D rebuild is gonna take 'at least' 2 yrs . So save ur playoff tickets money for 2016 . And that's ONLY IF the O maintains status-quo if not getting better . And that's also IF injuries stay at a minimum .:4_8_4v[1]:

    I respect your opinion Blue, but I disagree, at least from the perspective that it's a certainty. It COULD take longer (two years), in fact, it could be bad for a number of years if we do not draft the right people and Tucker is as bad as many on here believe he is. However, a sound FA plan and a well executed draft combined with a DC that is better than most believe he is, being able to run his own Defense could easily turn this Defense around much quicker. Yes, I said "easily"

    It is my opinion that a REALLY good D-Line that is able to put consistent pressure on the QB and is able to stop the run will make average DB's and LB's look MUCH better. Focus on the D-Line and in my opinion our Defense could at least become respectable again, then subsequent years could be used to improve the back half of the Defense to make them dominant.

    It is not my intent to read all this (off season tea leaves) though rose colored glasses or stick my head in the sand, but I'm not going to ignore the realistic potential either. I'm trying to be pragmatic, and I think the potential for a quick turn around is there, it just has to be executed.

    I agree, and would add that if we hope to unseat Aaron Rodgers' Green Bay Packers dominance in the NFC-N, then a solid DL is critically important. Without a decent DL he can take us apart with surgical precision any time he wants. With all of the solid QB's and offenses in the league, you really have to have a solid DL to compete with "The Big Boys" and win.
