when do you guys project the bears drafting a RB, who do you think they'll take?

Only on the 2nd Day. I wouldn't mind Darius Walker or if he falls to the 4th Lorenzo Booker.

Brandon Jackson in the 3rd.

I'd say not until AT LEAST the 4th round, maybe 5th.

So, Kenneth Darby if he slips, Lorenzo Booker, DeShawn Wynn, Tyrone Moss, Darius Walker, Garrett Wolfe or Romance Taylor. One of those guys. I say we get a fast RB with upside or who could be a change of pace/3rd down back.

One option though, if the Briggs trade goes down and we then trade down and get extra picks, if we have an early 3rd and Micheal Bush is available, GRAB HIM. We would then have a better 1-2 punch and our running game would have IMPROVED w/out TJ. ironic.

I think they go 7th round or undrafted FA. Whoever they target has to be willing to play special teams and be good at it.

Exactly.
Well, I think they may travel up to the fifth. But probably not before that.

I'm not totally sold that the organization is comfortable with Peterson as the clear #2, especially with Benson's history of recent injuries. I think it depends on who is available, but if Booker is there in the 3rd I agree that I think he would be hard to turn down. I wouldn't totally rule out Henry from Arizona either, although that is more based on potential. They need a speed component obviously.

they will wait till the 4th, unless they aquire an extra first day pick..and if someone slips to the 4th they will take him....

...i think they wait till 4th but you never know, if a RB is the top player available when they go to pick, they might do it in the 3rd, no way in the 1st or 2nd though..

Romance Taylor
A running back named Romance on a team whose head coach's name is Lovie. That would certainly be interesting.

Like I said... it will be Brandon Jackson in the 3rd.

I would almost promise you we won't take Bush. We need a cutback speed guy, the exact opposite of Bush. This is why everyone keeps bringing up Brandon Jackson.

I agree. I would like to take Bush if he drops down enough. If Benson gets injured again, what do we do - Peterson and Darius Walker? That does not work IMO.

i like darius walker hes got great hands and could come in on some passing downs. and i recall i think he had a 41 inch vertical at the combine.

I am not knocking Darius Walker, it is more of a concern about Benson staying healthy through the regular season and playoffs.

Oh. That sounds better. I'm assuming it's pronounced rah-MOAN-say. And, btw, swiftizm spelled it wrong 1st.

He should change his name. Romance and Lovie would just be great. I could just imagine the Bears marketing if that would happen. Ha. Oh well, its not going to happen.

Doesn't matter either, since the Bears didn't take him.

So you would've rather had 3 RB's with simular styles then? That's incredibly stupid. Wolfe may not have been the "best value" but he's what we needed as a change of pace back, and with Jackson gone we went that route.

Well i dont think Peterson is a starter, a solid backup and special teamer but if Benson goes down then i would have preferred having Bush, a guy of similar talents so that our offense's dynamic didnt change.
