    Landry. Mike Brown still might be out for the first few weeks, Landry would at least start until then, maybe even longer because Archuleta might not return to his old form.

    • Ideally we would trade up or down. Other than the picks of Landry, and Willis, I wouldn't be opposed to grabbing Alan Branch there considering Tank may be out for up to eight games( more likely four). I could be wrong but I see an athletic DT of his size freeing up Tommie and Urlacher and upgrading our D to the next level.

        I think if you go DT, Okeye is a more realistic possibility. He's more of a Tampa 2 DT than Branch.

          I heartily agree ... and I'll keep with my original position, which is that, I personally wouldn't pick Willis in the top 20. LB's can be found ... and even though this is a linebacker thin draft, especially lacking bigger backers ... I don't think you take a backer that early unless they have minimal flaws ... and Willis has flaws. I think Tim Shaw in the 2nd round/3rd round, especially with his versatility, is a much better value than Patrick Willis top 20.

          That said, the physical upside along with a solid background is making it seem as if Willis, at worst, will go top 15 ... and potentially top 10.

            As bbd has noted, I highly doubt that we would pursue Branch. Grabbing Okoye would make more sense as a fit than Branch, and arguably, Okoye has better value than Branch, along with the potential to add some size.

              My fault. I forgot you switched picks in the 2nd round with the Jets instead of gaining an additional 2nd. So let's say this trade goes through and the Bears now have the Skins 1st, and the Jets 2nd. Toon, who would you want the Bears to target in the first round as a Bear's fan.

                • This can't be. Ask the people from the Alan Faneca thread. A player threatening a hold out isn't worth more than a 4th round pick!

                    You're angry... and an idiot.

                    Is Briggs 30+? Does Briggs play one of the less important positions?

                            • Unbelieveable! How anyone can justify Washington doing this is beyond me. Not only are the seriously overvalueing a wantaway player like Briggs, they don't even have a need for him. They are gunna be a perenially old, and probably poor, team if they keep having such little regard for their draft picks. I doubt their linebackers will even make tackles with their irrelevant Dline.
