    DeCastro, Sherrod/Carimi, or Cannon in the first is a must.
    Leonard Hankerson in the 2nd after taking any o-lineman in the first is my current ideal.

    • When do the bears need to think about drafting a replacement MLB?

      Urlacher has been one of the big keys to the defense. Peppers is locked up, Idonje seems suitable, our DT rotation seems solid. I am worried that only a year or two more will be there for Urlacher.

      Thanks to BoneKrusher Credit and Rep to him for the sig.

        If we look for an athletic youngster in the 4th/5th round to develop, I'd settle for that this year.

        Assuming it's a guy we actually keep for more than a year....because we've been cutting drafted linebackers left and right it seems.

        • Cutting or trading at least. Alex Wujciak, Casey Mathews, or Mark Herzlich all fit. Ive said before Herzy would be so awesome I wouldn't mind taking him before more pressing needs. Reminds me of a more athletic Ben Leber.

          And it would be cool not to draft a 6'0 230lb. WLB again...
          I want a sig.

          • So in the December Forum Mock, I was given control of the Bears. Here is the thread:

            http://draftcountdown.com/forum/showthread.php?t=44427

            And this is the draft I went with...

            25. Nate Solder, OT Colorado
            57. Ben Ijalana, OT Villanova
            89. Leonard Hankerson, WR Miami
            121. Corey Liuget, DT Illinois
            153. Brandon Boykin, CB Georgia

            Obviously attacked the OLine with the 1st two picks, added a receiver with some size in Hankerson in the 3rd, and then went and brought in a UT and CB with crazy physical ability and a lot of potential.

            Have at it...

              I'm very upset that I missed it this time around after practically running the last one...

              Anywho, I'm not a big Solder guy, but it is a position of need and I've looked at who was available, and there weren't many better options. So I'd be ok with it there.

              Ijalana is solid.

              Hankerson in the 3rd is where you win major points. Did everyone else forget about him? He has no business going outside of the 2nd round....steal at that point and exactly the type of WR I'd love to add.

              The others...depth players at positions where we could use some depth. Solid overall effort.

              • Yeah I wouldn't have much problem even switching our 2nd and 3rds to be honest. 1st pick would sting a little though.

                • Just curious what you guys think about OT Joseph Barksdale out of LSU. I've heard several reviews calling this guy underrated and sleeper. Not many major sites have even mentioned him but the ones that do continue to say this guy is underrated. What I hear about him is very good. Anybody have any opinions on him. He sounds very interesting as a possible late 1st or 2nd round selection.

                    I am in the minority here, but I don't even think he's as good as Ciron Block was last year.

                      Really good, but obviously not realistic.

                      Liuget is going back to Illinois and will be a first rounder next season.

                        Dont forget Knox's big drop. ;) I dont want us to reach for a WR. There should be an O linemen worth the pick in the 1st and thats a bigger need. WR in the 2nd though should definitely be an option. Should be some good looking guys there.

                        I would just worry about it in a year or 2. I hope we resign Pisa. He can play MLB.

                          Pisa can't play anything. The guy is never healthy.

                          Anyway, best Bears mock ever: http://draftcountdown.com/forum/showthread.php?t=44525

                          Unrealistic, I think, but amazing.

                            Our 3rd rounder changed since I commented on it....don't remember who was there though. Meh to Hightower, but that would still be a great round 1 and 2.

                            • Danny Watkins, OT/G from Baylor interests me a lot. Strong blocker with long arms who could help bolster our interior.

                              Marcus Cannon is another OL the Bears could use. A huge blocker who's having a great year for TCU.

                              I'd like to trade down and get both of them.

                              At wideout, I love Titus Young out of Boise State. A speedy, reliable deep threat who just screams Mike Wallace to me. Him and Knox could burn secondaries together.

                              • So, with who I think there's a chance to be left when we pick in the first, this would be my draft board:

                                1. Derek Sherrod, LT/RT, Mississippi State
                                2. Gabe Carimi, RT, Wisconsin
                                3. Anthony Castonzo, LT, Boston College
                                4. Michael Floyd, WR, Notre Dame
                                5. Stephen Paea, DT, Oregon State
                                6. DeMarcus Love, OG/RT, Arkansas
                                7. Jonathan Baldwin, WR, Pittsburgh
                                8. Torrey Smith, WR, Maryland
                                9. Try to trade down (I see a hell of a lot of value in the second round)
                                10. Drake Nevis, DT, LSU
                                11. Nate Solder, LT, Colorado
                                12. Stefen Wisniewski, C/OG, Penn State

                                Obviously, things may change after the combine, but that's where it sits right now.
