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.
Here is a recap of the player interviews that were conducted on the field after Tuesday's practice by the East team. Typically, these interviews with area scouts are to set up longer, formal interviews for a night during the week. While teams say they "talk" to every player, teams do not take the time to conduct formal interviews with every draft prospect, so this can be a clue as to which players are on their radar.
