    JABF I hope you are right, I know of one pro scout on this board that 100% believed he would be a 3 down 4-3 DE, but I never believed it, most of what I read was 3-4 OLB, but if you have stuff saying 4-3 SAM I'm hoping you are correct, he'll still have to shed blocks from TE's and T's which is something he struggled with, but maybe he'll be able to use his speed more from a standing position.

    I'm curious to see how Shea and Conte do this year. It's the 11th-hour for both of them I think. It would be great if one or even both of them prove to be good players. This is the make-or-break year for both though.

    Positive - McShea
    Negative - Mills.

    I've had that thought too, I just hope the damage hasn't been done to his career. Watching him was maddening at DE and I think he caught the ire of most fans (myself included) that didn't want to see him in a bears uni anymore. Looking back, and nowt hat he IS where he belongs I feel bad for the guy and hope he can pick up where he left off at Bosie State. I just really hope that Emery/Lovie didn't do irreversible damage to his career and he can take something away form his time at DE.

    The only Bears player I can ever recall doing that was Melton and obviously he had the frame for it. McClellin can't even keep 260lbs on. He's roughly 245-248lbs and that's good for a 6'3" OLB.

    True although they may have more patience with McClellin if only because he was a 1st round pick. But he has to show he's got some aptitude for playing LB they way he'll be asked to here. If he plays well and progresses throughout the year he's safe.

    Didn't Shea play a lot of Mike backer at Boise? Not all the time, but wasn't he a pretty good coverage guy?

    Having a good year - Bostic.
    Having a crap year - Corn Wash if he sees the field.

    Worried about Mills. Hate to see an injury impact his play so soon in his career. Time will tell.

    I like Wilson's chances this year and I think McClellin will also play better, but I don't think he will be where they wanted him to be. I'm concerned about Bostic but hope I'm wrong
