Im sitting here at work in the early hours of the morning and I cant help but wonder who Da Bears might select in the 2011 Draft. It seems to be a deep draft class in talent and will be interesting to see who we end up with. Personally I dont see a big group of areas that we need to work on other than some O-line help and maybe a DB or two. These are a few picks that I wouldnt mind seeing, what are yours?
Round 1. If we dont pick up an O-lineman or 2 in free agency than I would love to see Anthony Costanzo or Derek Sherrod (both OT's) with the first pick. Although I know we wont be high enough to get him, I absolutely think Nick Fairley (DT) out of Auburn will be an elite DT in the NFL. And would be a welcome addition to the Bears. But like I said, An OT or G would be the best bet here.
- Justin Blackmon will be a great idea to throw around as well. (only if he declares this year)
Round 2. This is a toss up pick for me, I would like to see either a CB or DT picked here. But depending on whose available maybe even an ILB. If we pick a DT I would like to see Jared Crick (6-1 285 -9.5 sacks) out of Nebraska or Jurrell Casey (4.5 sacks, 1 INT) out of USC. If we could pick a CB at this point in the draft I would love to get Ras I Dowling but most likely he will be gone at this point. I personally like Donnie Fletcher (6-1 196 5 INTs) out of Boston College.
Round 3. This pick to me should be used on a ILB or WR. I would like to see a C picked here but there could be deep talent with the lB's and WR's this year. IF we pick a ILB, I like Chris Marve (6-0 240 - 79 tackles 3 sacks 5 f fumbles) out of Vandy. If we go WR, I like Leonard Hankerson (6-3 210- 66rec 1085 yards 12td's)
The late rounds are always up for grabs but one prospect I really like is Safety Mana Silva out of Hawaii. He's got good size and picked of qb's 7 times this year. Another player I would also like to see us get is Guard John Moffit out of Wisconsin. Of course all these are probably not even close to what will come, but these are the players I wouldnt mind seeing picked up in next years draft. Let me know who you would like to see
