    I had no intention of doing another one until Mr Snarky suggested it; so if you don't like it, put it on his back, not mine.

    Something I didn't think about when it came to the Week before the draft mock was Emery saying this draft is O heavy and it depending on how the draft falls they could go 7 1 side players, 4-3 D to O players or vise versa. I cannot see them possibly ever going all 1 so lets go 4-3 D and see how it falls; again you know how to blame.

    14: Aaron Donald DT, IF he's there I cannot imagine they wouldn't take him; or trade down b/c he is there those are the options. While I don't necessarily believe he's automatically the ideal fit for every 4-3 scheme, and is a tad small, you don't pass up on top 10 talent if it's there and not take advantage of it somehow.

    51: Troy Niklas TE, 6-6 270 need I say more? no, but I will b/c BiH wants it, wants it like a virgin on prom night. The Bears need a legit 2nd TE in case DaOD goes down, and Niklas is a better option then any TE currently on the roster. What he lacks in finish shouldn't take long to polish w/the current roster of pro's pro's. For those that say the Bears don't run 2 TE sets, I say they didn't have 2 TE's on the roster worth running 2 TE sets with, get this kid up to speed and watch D's weep at the pointlessness of their jobs.

    81: Stanley Jean-Baptiste CB: Big strong decent speed for a 6'3" cb, I think this is the guy they look to convert into a S, at least for 1 year.

    117: Dri Archer RB/WR. Speedy tweener that will likely remove a need for any KR/PR competition. And what's the one thing this O doesn't have on it, elite speed, this kid has it.

    156: Max Bullough ILB. Max is more smart and heart then physically gifted, but the team could do worse at this point, and they need depth here badly. if nothing else that fire and intelligence could make itself usefull on ST's if he doesn't develop.

    183: Antone Exum CB: Where some people will see lack of a position, Emery will see "versatility" another big CB possible S or OLB that can handle the bigger WR's/TE's, biggest issue are the inj concerns, but if the med reports come back good he's a great value here.

    191: Alfred Blue RB: Big RB who could potentially share the load w/Forte or take over if Forte gets hurt, is capable of running the ball and receiving out of the backfield, and unlike many RB's that will be considered better then him, he has low milage b/c of splitting the load w/Jeremy Hill. While not fast, 4.7 40, he's got good break away speed, and has no issues running inside either.

    I want Bucannon also, but the reality is he's quickly rising to mid 1st round status, so unless the Bears take him at 14 he's not going to be there at 51. And if they draft a S at 14, I'd rather have Pryor or Dix.

    oooohhhhhh..... you intended. You just needed an excuse.

    And I'm still a virgin. I'm saving myself for Scarlett Johansson. If anyone knows her, pass on the message so she can rescue me.

    I don't see getting Bucannon unless we use our first (and I think there are better choices) or we trade down a little --- and then no guarantees.

    If Donald Pryor and Gilbert are there I could see being able to move back a few spots w/someone that wants one of them; and if none are left being okay w/Bucannon

    Buchannon is now a 1st rounder? Wow, didn't know that. I could see Ward sneaking into the bottom but.....who knows.

    That's a darn good draft, Ric. I like Bullough (sp?) as a mid draft MLB who at least gives us some depth there. SJB or McGill would be solid CB options. I prob wouldn't double up at RB, would take a WR or even OL instead but still I do like it.

    Wouldn't surprise me if he is, and wouldn't surprise me if he's not. He is a good player and it would not surprise me if he went bottom of the 1st or top half of the 2nd. Be nice if he were there for our second pick. He might be, but I'd only use Rics money to make that bet.

    If SF doesn't/can't move up, I could see them taking him in late 1 as a Whitner replacement so it makes sense.

    Um, it seems Soul puts effort into his opinions, whereas they're not a necessity for me. For example, my mock goes:

    Rd 1: BPA
    Rd 2: BPA
    Rd 3: BPA

    etc.

    And it's as good as anyone else's, lol

    The holy grail that is "BPA" (same discussion every year) is in the eyes of the beholder. And yeah team fits and needs play a major role in determining that, no matter how much every GM likes to pontificate self-righteously to the contrary. Basically, "pure-BPA" is a phony concept, at least in the early rounds. Often talked about, seldom practiced., and with good reason. For instance:

    If Conte and Wright had both panned out as quality above-average safeties, does anyone here think we'd be talking about Pryor or Dix at 14?

    If Jennings and Peanut were both 5 years younger with two pro-bowls each to their credit, would Gilbert or Fuller or Dennard be serious 1st round considerations?

    If Melton had stayed healthy and re-signed after a second consecutive pro bowl season, would people be fawning over Donald?

    If MartyB or Alshon had been a total flop, might we be talking about Ebron or a WR right now?

    I could go on but the point is obvious. "BPA" selections CHANGE depending upon what fits and needs are.

    That is why I always say take BPA based on need.

    If Bears need X, Y and Z pass on the BPA if he does not fit in the X, Y and Z category
