Indy seems like a team in a good spot to move down should someone want a QB. It could conceivably go QB, QB, QB, RB, QB, QB, DE.


I would love it if that happened.

Assuming Chubb is that DE, our options are then:

Fitzpatrick
Smith
Key
McFadden
Ferrell
Ridley
Kirk

How do you not like that? And yes I deliberately left off OL. You could trade down a couple spots and still draft somebody impactful.

Williams probably falls to R2 just based on his injuries.

Because of a meniscus tear? I don't think so, unless I am missing something.

I'll say it again, I think we can get a WR in R2 and should address OL or Edge Rusher in R1.

He had one injury in college, and came back to play before the end of the season. He only missed one game his first two seasons (and that was because Strong decided to rest some starters against UTEP).

A torn MCL isn’t going to drop him a round. He might go in the second - but it would be because teams graded him out as a second round talent.

I still will eat my hat if we draft a tackle in one of the first two rounds. But I am all in on drafting a generational talent at guard, releasing sitton and using those savings towards other free agents. i dont think that a replacement for sitton is needed this year, but if nelson really is the BPA available, my body is ready.

Just got done listening to McShay/Kiper's First Draft podcast and they're not really high on this Tackle or WR class at all.

Kiper and McShay said that McGlinchey is a RT in the NFL and that he's sort of the Jack Conklin of this draft. Connor Williams shouldn't be drafted until the 20's and that his tape wasn't that impressive this year and then got injured.

Said they wouldn't be surprised one bit to see Nelson as the top OL drafted ahead of any of the Tackles.

As for the WR's, they don't think Ridley, Sutton or any of the others should be drafted in the 1st round but think that Ridley and Sutton will get overdrafted.

Nothing we haven't already been saying here, but thought I'd share. I personally don't think the Bears draft any of the WR's or OT's in the 1st round. I think it's going to be Nelson or Pass Rusher.

I don't understand the insistence on drafting OL in the first round. This is an area that can be addressed in FA and later on in the draft. Unless if this is a BPA argument in which case I understand, but that's not the vibe I'm getting.

Well Nelson or Williams very easily could be BOA. Add to that, the best thing a young QB can have is a clean pocket and time, OLine play becomes important.

Thanks.
I'll have to start downloading again.

Agree with almost everything they say.

[*] Agree WRs not that special. Can wait until R2.
[*] Agree bad OT group. McGlinchey iffy for LT, Williams way overrated.
[*] Agree Rusher should be the top early target
[*] Agree Nelson could be first OL off the board...but strenuously against the Bears doing that.
