I Don't Care Who the Bears Draft, and Neither Should They

I've been mulling this over in my head for quite some time now. The argument can (and has) been made that the Bears should take a wide receiver in the first round. Others would argue that we need to shore up our offensive line with our first round draft pick. My take? Draft the best damn player available regardless of position.

That's what winning organizations do. They take the best player off their draft board even when that player may not fill an immediate need. It's what Detroit did last season with Fairley. They already had an impressive D-line but Fairley represented too great a value to pass on him. It's what Greenbay did when they drafted Aaron Rogers. How'd that work out?

People can point out many areas of "need" on our team. If the need is that big, find the right free agent. The bottom line is that if you have glaring needs on your team chances are you're probably not going to field a winner in September anyway. I personally don't think this team is that far off right now. So I truly don't care what direction the Bears go with the 19th pick in the draft as long as it gets us an NFL caliber starter. Great teams grab the best player available. And that's what the Bears should do this April. They are, after all, a great NFL team.
