    DT TIMMY JERNIGAN

    2 35 Chicago
    ILB C.J. MOSLEY

    2 51 Chicago
    SS JIMMIE WARD

    3 82 Chicago
    FS TERRENCE BROOKS

    4 117 Chicago
    CB PIERRE DESIR (I'd love to see the Bears draft this guy)

    5 156 Chicago
    TE CROCKETT GILMORE

    6 183 Chicago
    QB LOGAN THOMAS

    6 191 Chicago

    Whoa, that would be a pretty powerful draft through four. Wonder if Quarles would trump Jernigan at that #29 spot but the rest sweet Jeezus!

    If this is how it ended up happening I would be beyond happy. Jernigan, Mosley and Ward could all compete for starting jobs. Brooks would be a high ceiling guy if he develops as well as Thomas and Desir. Don't kow much about Gilmore and Hall but they provide depth.

    That brings up an interesting topic. If Mosley starts to slip into pick 34-40 range wonder if Phil looks at trading up I think he is a great pick, just not at 14

    I'm going to run the draft again this morning to see what unfolds. Maybe I'll use one of the other two draft scenarios that Griz threw out there yesterday. I completely understand that fans were sick of how Jerry Angelo traded down and picked mediocre talent.

    But that doesn't necessarily mean the trade down idea itself is a bad one.

    Sometimes it may make sense for a team that is a better judge of player talent than Jerry Angelo was, to harvest an extra player or two in that "sweet spot" of the draft by trading down. It also depends upon the draft-year. This year, there is some depth at some of the positions, that might make it worth our while to grab an extra 2nd rounder guy who could start day-1, if the trade down in the first round looked like it would still get us a rock solid player too. I think this is why a guy like Bill Belichick does this so often. We may like or hate Belichick, but the guy has put together a Hall of Fame coaching career by being football-smart. It's not always about the "name" draft pick that the fans want. Sometimes it makes sense to restock the cupboard with players from that sweet spot in the draft that includes the second (and even 3rd) round.

    I agree with what you said I just don't think the value will be there for a trade down. The scenarios I mentioned are best case scenarios and I would hope Emery would jump all over one of those deals. More realistically though it would be US getting the short end numerically probably a SF deal would look more like 14 for their first, their later 2nd and a 5th or something. If Emery could somehow hardball them into a deal like I mentioned I would support the move down but I think if we did move we would all be disappointed on what we got back.

    I agree, it would all depend upon the value of the deal. And that would be true of any trade down. Emery is smart enough to not take a bad deal here. If a good one presents itself then jump on it. If not, then stay the course with the #14 pick. I'm pretty excited about the upcoming draft either way. I just want to see who we end up with. And I could see Emery adding a guy or two after the draft too.

    I think most agressive teams that have needs add players in the post draft FA. This is when players get released because of the draft players, and some of them might be better than players already on the team.

    I would keep an eye on SF and Den I Barr or Mack falls out of the top 10-12. Moving up to the top 10 would prolly cost too much but If they are there after they may want to move. Both are seemingly all in this year and it may be tempting.

    Okay, I ran the Fanspeak.com draft again, but this time with the "Scenario 1" option. I call this one "The Barr Scam" :-)

    Round 1, pick 30 - SS JIMMIE WARD

    Round 2, pick 51 - DT TIMMY JERNIGAN

    Round 2, pick 56 - OG GABE JACKSON
    (I couldn't pass him up) "Compares to Larry Warford, - Jackson's rare and surprising combination of size, quickness and power should remind a lot of scouts of the 2013 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year, Warford"

    Round 2, pick 61 - ILB CHRIS BORLAND

    Round 3, pick 82 - TE C.J. FIEDOROWICZ (Solid reciever AND blocker)

    Round 4, pick 117 - DT EGO FERGUSON

    Round 4, pick 129 - CB BASHAUD BREELAND

    Round 5, pick 156 - CB DEION BELUE

    Round 6, pick 183 - RB ANDRE WILLIAMS

    Round 6, pick 191 - SS CRAIG LOSTON (I was shocked he dropped to here)
