Nope.

Kirk is a good pick, and I like Hercules - but the rest of this leaves me wanting.

Oh, there's nothing wrong with Brandon Parker, though I suspect Round 6 is at least one round too late for him.

But Watson, Justin Jackson, and Durham Smythe are all overvalued here (not to mention a whole lot of homerism with Jackson and Smythe), and I don't know where Mata’afa plays — he can't line up at DT like he was in college and likely can't play OLB.

Yeah, I don't have a problem with Parker. I think he's a decent RT prospect, but they need a guard before a RT. That's my complaint.

I like Smythe, but they don't need to spend a pick on a TE.

Two WR's? Are we assuming the Bears are just going to ignore FA?

No need to waste a pick on a RB this year either.

Hercules is a weird tweener that doesn't seem to be a great fit inside or outside.

It doesn't take into consideration any sort of moves in free agency.

Also, I'm far less convinced than you about not spending a pick on a RB. I'm willing to bet a nickel they do.

Mata'afa intrigues me to no end, but yeah, can he play OLB? I'm sure he'd be fine at DE in our 4 man d line sub packages...

If the kid did last till the 4th round, I'd probably be calling for his name anyway. It's a good problem to figure out, having a quick, leverage using guy who is damn hard to block. He'd be a good guy to bring in after Hicks has been beating on a RT all game and have him just slip bye for a nice sack in a key moment.

I wouldn’t be thrilled with Hercules as our offseason upgrade at edge.

I don't think anyone would be all that thrilled if a 4th rounder was our only investment in EDGE - regardless of the 4th rounders name.

I expect they will have to do something in FA regardless of what they plan on doing in the draft.
