    I can't deny either Dix or Pryor would look really good with a "C" on their helmet. We just need about 4 first round picks!:36_1_11[1]:

    We just need to spend our 1st round picks over the next 3 years to move up to the first pick, then trade down like 3 times to get those 4 picks

    You can do that? Man if it's not an expensive table that would save a lot of money buying firewood. ;)

    Didn't "come out of no where". Where did you get that idea from???
    This isn't just a "combine hero" or "Senior Bowl star" only.
    Totally false.

    Sr. Year: 11 sacks, 28.5 TFLs, 59 total T, 3 passes defended, 4 forced fumbles

    Average of Soph & Jr. Years: 8 sacks, 50 total T, 17 TFLs, 3 PD, 1 FF

    The chief "knock" on this guy from what I've read is that he was thought to be yeah really good but too small to hold up in the NFL. Well, not only did he dominate against Senior Bowl competition (many of whom are future NFL draft picks fighting like hell to impress in that game) but he measured in at the combine at just shy of 6' 1" & nearly 290 lbs.

    My chief worry about him at this point isn't that he's unqualified, it's that he might not even make it to #14 anymore.

    I'm getting it from the fact that all season the 3 best DT's were Nix, Hagemen, Jernigan in that order. Then Sr Bowl roles around and NOW it's Donald clearly #1.

    A lot of times that occurs because those 3 just got more exposure than Donald, so many of the people who do "rankings" may not have seen him. At the senior bowl his play forced them to look at his game film, which backs up his current ranking. Hageman has risen too lately...a lot of people had him pegged for the second round.

    I understand re-evaluating the tape. Just find it amazing how much the player rankings change after the year is done resulting from Sr Bowl and combine. These should confim a player not drastically move a player Going from 5th or 6th DT to the best is a big flag to me; We look forward to the Bears O-line being the same and building on last yr the continuity will bring imrprovement. We have all heard that___ There is no continuity in the SR. bowl 0-line, of course he will look good.

    Its not like Pitt is a small school with no exposure but now he is the best. That is my concern. If he truely projects as the top NFL DT in the class 2 yrs from now I would love to have him. All these questions and the rapid rise after the season just make me question who will be the best down the road and if it was so clear he would have made it nearer the top before the season ended.
