Jerry Angelo gave a pre-draft press conference today. Here's a nugget from espn.com Bears beat writer Michael C. Wright's Twitter:
Angelo on OL: "We want to go bigger. We're not really looking at guard/centers."
Also have to mention that Jerry Angelo also said that he doesn't consider Derek Sherrod a first-round guy.
More after the jump...
Linebacker a definite target?
Lack of teams playing 4-3 helps Bears' chances of landing solid LB. Bears think they can get one from mid to late to FA.
So they will stay put at 29?
Bears say they have 4 positions they could address in 1st rd & anywhere from 4 to 6 guys in mind at No. 29.
Jerry Angelo just said Bears aren't overly concerned w/the baggage of North Carolina DT Marvin Austin.
Angelo on Austin: "Feel real good about him. There were concerns, but we're satisfied we know him."
