I dont think it is time for the bears to draft a QB. They simply dont have a supporting class to help a rookie QB. This Has to be a best available draft. I would prefer someone like Myles Garrett. Adding Garrett (best defensive prospect since Clowney) would take some pressure off the offense. If absolutely necessary, draft a Qb that falls to the 2nd or 3rd, but I dont get starting qb vibes from Kizer, Watson, or Kaaya. Improve the defense, evaluate the entire roster, and if they end up terribe again next year (which is likely) draft Rosen.
The order of these teams cracks me up. Say Chuck, have you seen Green Bay play this year? On the flip side, have you seen Denver or Minnesota play? Try changing up your draft order to how the teams are currently playing, it will change your drafts more from week to week, instead of looking the same.
Yet again, I will follow Walt's lead for this draft order outside the fact that the Bears land the top pick over the 49ers or Browns, I have more faith in Cutler running into wins before I do with Kessler or Gabbert. Also, there are still some players not in the system such as the Illini DEs, Justin Evans and Malik Hooker at safety. Until they are in I will mock without them.

Week 8 College Football Picks
Minnesota vs. Ohio State (-18): Buckeyes defense is good enough to win this game, but Terrelle Pryor has not shown the consistency necessary to allow Ohio State to cover this spread. Pick: Ohio State 24, Minnesota 13.
Georgia Tech vs. Virginia (+5): Yellow Jackets make it two wins in consecutive weeks over teams from the Old Dominion. Pick: Georgia Tech 27, Virginia 20.
Boston College vs. Notre Dame (-8.5): Irish can build on the last weekend's close loss to USC. Boston College did not handle a raucous Hokie crowd well in Blacksburg a couple weeks ago. Pick: Notre Dame 34, Boston College 17.
Penn State vs. Michigan (+4.5): Michigan Stadium has traditionally been a house of horrors for the Nittany Lions. Tate Forcier should be ready to go against Penn State, and I expect this game to come down to the final possession. Pick: Penn State 33, Michigan 30.
Oregon vs. Washington (+10): This Ducks squad has too much firepower for the Huskies, even in Seattle. Pick: Oregon 31, Washington 13.
Tennessee at Alabama (-15): Nick Saban's squad looks like the top team in the nation against the overmatched Volunteers in Tuscaloosa. Pick: Alabama 37, Tennessee 13.
Clemson at Miami (-7): The Canes return to form against a Clemson squad that could not beat Maryland. Pick: Miami 35, Clemson 10.
Florida at Mississippi State (+23): Tim Tebow and the Gators received quite a scare from the Razorbacks in Gainesville on Saturday. Look for Florida to bounce back this weekend and pour it on the Bulldogs. Pick: Florida 38, Mississippi State 10.
Oregon State at USC (-21): Pete Carroll's Trojans win this game comfortably, but the Beavers barely cover the spread. Pick: USC 35, Oregon 17.
Texas at Missouri (+13): The Longhorns survived a thriller against Oklahoma last weekend in Dallas. Will they be ready for this homecoming and prime-time showdown in Columbia? Mizzou keeps it closer than some may think, but Texas pulls it out. Pick: Texas 30, Missouri 20.
