    Me too BIH. Tomorrow should be an interesting day. I'm taking the day off & will probably spend the day on this site & reading my draft books. I know it doesn't sound all that exciting but I love it. Plus any day off work is a good day.

    Emery said he picked Fuller to play corner not safety.

    Fuller was taken to play CB per Emery.

    What does this pick mean for Frey?

    He's already better than Frey IMHO.

    To those who still think Dix or Pryor would've been better, consider this.....
    What did the best CB in the league Darelle Revis get paid?
    What did one of the better CBs in the league, Sam Shields get paid? (4 years $39 mil)
    compare to the best FS in the league.....Byrd (6 year $56mil)
    compare to one of the best SS in the league....TJ Ward (4 yr $22.5mil)

    Point is, CB is valued much more than safety. The cap money you save by drafting a top CB in the 1st over 4 years rather than paying one in FA are MUCH higher than the same situation with a safety.

    I was hoping for Donald to drop but Fuller was the BPA at a position of need for the Bears. Good height, good athlete, instincts, physical, and VERY long arms.

    Thanks for posting that vid. The only tape I had seen on him was that short vid I saw on the Chicago Bears site. Looked good, but only three plays and I liked what I saw but was not blown away. This is much better. I like what I see. He looks like he could be a very good corner. Still not crazy about getting a guy with a 1st that will not be a starter, but there is a need, and there is a good chance we would pick too low next year to get a top corner. You can't count on a Dennard falling as low next year as he did this year.

    I'm not going to second guess Emery especially when I think he picked a good player.

    *shrug* Sounds good to me. He'll be a great NB and still take over for Tillman a year from now. If Frey is worth anything then we still will have three CB's next year once Tillman departs.

    So much for drafting a Safety in the 2nd round.

    Bucannon (Cardinals) and Ward (49ers) are both gone in the 1st.

    Ok, I said no matter what I wouldn't get frustrated or angry with whoever we picked. I see some positives about Fuller, and DO think that Emery has intentions of moving him to S. Now with leaving Clinton Dix on the board as well as Pryor, Emery better damn be right on this one. And Dix goes to GB? If this pick blows up in his/our face and CD ends up a clearly better player I think many fans (myself included) will have their confidence in Emery shook deeply when it comes to first round selections.
