So some things I've heard over the last week, and find accurate are going to account into this mock: 1) DE/DT are more expensive in FA then DB, so I'll add more legit starter options here then on the DL. 2) Emery so far has shown a propensity to sign 1-2 year potential starter guys while the young players develop, so while there might be 1 or 2 3-4 contract guys, it's going to be short contracts for boarderline guys for the most part 3) things are definately pointing to a hybrid or flat scheme switch on D. 4) Def centered draft does not mean ALL def. 5) deep draft, one mocker scored a full 7 rounds of players w/draftable grades, last year he said he barely got 3 rounds, part of that being all the juniors coming out early; this is also going to mean a lot of UDFA potential help for depth. That doesn't mean that there aren't weak areas, and ILB and S are 2 of them. Cuts: Peppers, Bush, EBennett, Weems, Podlesh Already re-signed: Cutler, Fiametta, Slauson Bear re-sign: Collins 1yr deal he's cheap, cheaper then what he should have been b/c of inj, good depth and the team likes him. Wootton 4yr deal showed that V word that Emery likes so much, they know he can play 4-3 DE and DT(not great but can) and probably can play 3-4 DE. Bowman, 1yr deal team needs a nickle/potentail starter and he stepped in admerably when Tillman went down. Mannely, team will look to sign a 1yr deal with him. DJ 1yr deal, he actuall played really well last year before inj, he won't demand or cost much b/c of that inj and he can play ever LB position in both schemes. McCown 1yr deal Boggs 2yr deal FA signs: Chris Clemons SS, age 28. 2yr deal, He's a good coverage guy that the Bears need and should be a solid starter for the next several years. Darrell Stuckey SS, age age 27, 2yr deal, nothing special depth guy. Rafael Bush, FS, age 27. 2yr deal, again nothing special, depth guy. Team before the draft QB: Cutler/McCown RB: Forte/Ford OT: Bushrod/Mills/JLong OG: Slauson/KLong/Brown OC: Boggs/Slauson TE: Bennett/Fendi WR: BMarsh/Jeffery/Wilson/Tolliver DT/NT Paea/Collins DE: Wootton/Bass/Corny OLB: Briggs/Shea/Bostic/Greene ILB: DJ/Bostic CB: Jennings/Bowman FS: Conte/Bush SS: Clemons/Stuckey Draft: 14: Stephon Truitt, DE, the team needs all sorts of line help, but finding a big interior guy will be easier later on then will be a big dominant outside guy, the team doesn't need another DE/OLB tweener, they have plenty so they go w/Truitt. 2nd round: Deandre Colemen, DT/DE, Big and Versatile, he could be a 3-4 DE or a 4-3 DT this will help spell confusion for the opposing O as they try and figure out what the Bears want to do. This might be to soon for him; but since when does Emery care about reaching? 3rd round: Dontae Johnson, CB,, Bears need a potential starter at CB, and he could fit the bill, he's also big at 6'2" so that will help when having to face a guy like Megatron in years to come. 4th round: Xavier Gimble, TE, D has gotten younger and solidified, and now the team needs to look towards the O, they get a legit backup TE and another Big target for Cutler if he can find the field. 5th round: James Morris, ILB/OLB, Can play both inside and outside and has a penchent for turning the ball over. 6th round: Gabe Ickard, C/OG, The team is still looking for that long term C, and Gabe provides versatility AND that potential down the line. 6th round: Isiah Johnson, SS coming off surgery hurts him, but he's big and can do multiple things on the field, showing an ability to blitz, and ball hawk. This is potential more then starting material, and no doubt his ability to both blitz and cover will have Emery intrigued. UDFA, Cody Riggs CB/S, Eric Gordon CB, Michael Campanaro WR, Marcus Coker RB, Kyle Christey P, Casey Pachall QB QB: Cutler/McCown/Pachell RB: Forte/Ford/Coker OT: Bushrod/Mills/JLong OG: Slauson/KLong/Brown OC: Boggs/Ickard TE: Bennett/Gimble/Fendi WR: BMarsh/Jeffery/Wilson/Tolliver/Campanaro DT/Collins/Truitt NT Coleman/Paea DE: Wootton/Truitt/Bass/Coleman/Corny OLB: Briggs/Shea/Bostic/Greene ILB: DJ/Bostic/Morris CB: Jennings/Johnson/Bowman/Riggs/Gordon FS: Conte/Bush/Riggs SS: Clemons/Stuckey/Johnson LS: Mannely K Gould P SoB, Christey 53 players, cut 1 of the P's, got 52. Probably need to bring in more help after UDFA in the form of ILB's and DB's, which means you can throw Campanaro Riggs and Gordon into the PS.
