I have been praying that the Bengals don't select a WR in the 1st round this whole time but after watching some highlights today. My mind has changed, Corey Coleman has superstar written all over him and I would love to see him go side-to-side with AJ Green. Coleman can go up for the ball if need be, runs routes extremley well, has good speed and Lesean McCoy type cutting ability at WR. I also, was really impressed by Josh Doctson who posses almost all the same skill traits as Coleman except for the cutting and he's not quite as fast but he goes up for the ball better! I was really not to wow'ed by Laquon Treadwell, I think he runs routes well and would be a nice redzone receiver but he's definitley not going to be the best reciever out of this class. As an Ohio State fan, it's hard for me to say but I don't like Michael Thomas's shot to be good in the NFL he's very average and doesn't excel at anything, he has decent speed, runs decent routes, and is decent at going high for the ball. Tyler Boyd is tremendous at going up for the ball and is hard to take down and has good speed too. So, my takeaway from all of this is that the way these WR's will pan out is: 1) Corey Coleman, 2) Josh Doctson, 3) Tyler Boyd, 4) Laquon Treadwell, 5) Michael Thomas.
Rd. 1, Pk. 13
Robert Nkemdiche, DT/DE/3-4DE, Ole Miss
I think John Fox will want to upgrade his defense, and he can do that by obtaining the ultra-talented Robert Nkemdiche. The Bears' defensive line is comprised of mediocre players, at best, and Nkemdiche could potentially offer a potentially massive upgrade.
And yes, Nkemdiche could easily drop to the teens. The teams we've spoken to aren't as impressed with Nkemdiche as the national media is, so it wouldn't be surprising to slip into the 8-14 range.
Pick change; previously Leonard Floyd, DE/OLB
Rd. 2, Pk. 12
Shilique Calhoun, DE/3-4OLB, Michigan State
The Bears need to bolster their defense. Willie Young hasn't transitioned well into the 3-4, so like Jared Allen, he could be traded at some point. Chicago has to find a solid pass-rusher across from Pernell McPhee, and Leonard Floyd is the top prospect available.
Pick change; previously Chris Jones, DE/DT
Rd. 3, Pk. 11
Tyler Johnstone, OT, Oregon
The Bears drafted a center, but they need more than just one upgrade on their horrific offensive line. They need to move Kyle Long back to guard, so why not another blocking Duck who can make that happen?
The Bears look to rebuild their defense with a linebacker who could restore the great tradition in Chicago.
The 6-foot-2, 235-pounder has the skills to cover in the passing game and be an impact run defender. In 2015, Smith has totaled 87 tackles, seven for a loss, one sack, four passes broken up and one forced fumble (he was robbed of one by the official scorer). He was all over the field for the Fighting Irish in 2014 with 112 tackles with nine tackles for a loss, one forced fumble, 3.5 sacks and two passes defended. Smith has speed and athleticism in the middle of the field with the ability to start on the inside or the outside.
Rd. 2, Pk. 14
Jonathan Bullard, DE/DT/3-4DE, Florida
Chicago's defense needs a lot of improvements from the front end to the back end. Here's an upgrade for the defensive line.
Bullard (6-3, 283) is an athletic and quick defensive lineman who can make plays in the backfield against the run or pass. The senior has played really well for Florida in 2015 with 49 tackles with 13.5 for a loss and 5.5 sacks. As a junior and sophomore, he was back and forth from end to tackle. In the NFL, Bullard would be a good base end who moves inside in passing situations.
Pick change; previously Will Redmond, CB
Rd. 3, Pk. 13
Denver Kirkland, OT/G, Arkansas
Chicago needs to find some upgrades to its offensive line.
Kirkland plays tackle for the Razorbacks, but he's a better fit as a power guard in the NFL. The 6-foot-5, 340-pounder has opened a lot of holes for the Arkansas ground game. Kirkland doesn't have the quickness or feet to block NFL speed rushers as a left tackle, but he could be a tough guard or right tackle.
Again like Washington if they have a top pick something went wrong at the Quarterback position. Jay Cutler wont have much help after Kevin white missing a few months due to a shin injury and Brandon Marshall to the Jets.But after signing a 7yr/$126M contract you should be able to produce with out your big time stars. Conner Cook is what you look for in a QB,Good passing ability and winning games.With a 23-3 Record and losing 1 in Conference match up,Cook could be the future a team is looking for
I can just see Goff to the Bears, and it would be interesting to see him battle former Cal QB Aaron Rodgers. Jay Cutler will probably be on the Browns next year (they always make the wrong decisions at the QB position), and while he certainly has the talent, he will never take the Bears to the Super Bowl. Alshon Jeffery and Matt Forte are mega talents that have been forgotten because of the lackluster team around them, but with a QB that actually cares (although we'll see about that), they will once again make their presence known. Goff's college system is problematic, but he has the arm, accuracy, and poise to become the face of a franchise.
