Don't count out DL. Unrein is gone, and Coward was moved to offense. Only Jenkins was brought back.

I'm not putting anything in stone, but I'd be shocked if the Bears didn't take a defensive linemen with one of their first two picks.

Bob Legere has an article today on PFW about Chicago's need for a DL and the possibility of drafting Vea at 8.

I don't quite see that happening only because I do think they want to give Bullard and RRH a chance to play meaningful snaps.

yup, i think a bunch of bears fans are going to be surprised when we dont take a defensive lineman until the third day, if at all. We have all three starters penciled in, we have 2 backups who know the system, we'll bring in udfa's, maybe another late free agent in the next phase of FA that happens after the draft.

I feel the same way about Amos/Jackson as well as Kwiatkoski.

7 more days.

While I could see them taking a DL in R1 or R2, it seems pretty evident that OG and OLB are our biggest needs. So my $$$ would be on those two in R1 and R2 and we don't have an R3. I think WR is nipping at the heels of DL as a need also. A lot depends on how the board falls.

If we take Nelson at 8, I pretty much expect a trade down in round 2. I don't see pockets of talent there outside of iOL and potentially WR depending upon how early Moore/Ridley go.

Davenport - 200 pass rushing opportunities last season, applied a pressure in 1 out of every 4 opps.

That’s pretty crazy, 25% clip. I wonder what the average is.

No idea, I found the Senior Bowl practices on YouTube and was focusing on him when one of the announcers brought up that stat.

I'm smitten. This is bad.
