Alshon Jeffery daydreams of lining up next to Brandon Marshall and catching passes from Jay Cutler.
The Bears followed up Thursday's acquisition of Shea McClellin with trading up for a receiver in Alshon Jeffery and drafting a player who didn't play during the season but has everything the team looks for in a prototypical free safety.
So far, I haven't really had many misgivings about how the draft has gone. When I hear Emery explain his picks, he seems to have legitimate football reasoning behind why he makes his selections. To further that, the Bears needed an end - they took one. They needed a receiver - they took one. They did actually need a safety - they took one. If the picks pan out, they've got their bookends for another few years; a solid, legitimate receiving corps; and a guy that'll at least be in competition for a starting spot, if not starting alongside Chris Conte. I'm not ready to tar and feather the man yet for not addressing offensive line.
With all that said, the draft's not over yet, and the Bears still have three picks to go - fourth round, sixth and seventh. Get your stuff done, order a pizza or have some other kind of good food at hand, and let's see what unfolds.
