Phil Emery is Doing His Job



So far this offseason we have seen the Bears add multiple veteran players to key positions of need. They've added linebackers, signed a franchise left tackle, as well as picked up a solid guard and a playmaking tight end, among other pick ups. Phil Emery has really provided himself a great scenario heading into the draft, as now he can just sit back and take the best player that falls to him, without having to worry about filling a position of need.

Among the players that the Bears have brought in for personal workouts so far are Arthur Brown and Alec Ogletree, both fast, athletic guys who excel in coverage. They've also brought in Brandon Williams, the DT from Missouri Southern. Williams is a big space eating type of DT who would fit well at the NT position.

Where Phil has done a great job is bringing in guys who may not get drafted, but would be good UDFA pick ups. this list includes such players as Kevin Milton, TE, LA Monroe, Zach Line, RB, SMU, and Bradley McDougal, S, Kansas. These are the players that could make up the foundation of the team. Solid depth players who fill special teams needs.

Players the Bears are going to visit with, but haven't brought in yet include CAL center, Brian Schwenke, and Texas A&M WR Ryan Swope. Both player I have rated with 2nd round grades.

The Bears would do well to fill some more depth with low value veteran signings, this way they will free themselves up even more for the first few rounds of the draft. Doing so would leave them in the position to draft completely BPA, which as we know, is the best way to build a team.
