All In on Draft Day?

I have mostly viewed draft day kind of like a birthday, when I used to get presents. What is the newest "toy" going to be. How will I have more fun with it? I remember past drafts where it was Tim Weigel ( I think )telling me after Walter was drafted, " You are gonna like this guy". Hampton being country strong or Singletary breaking helmets at Baylor. Brian Urlacher, a safety from the desert, with freakish skills and unlimited potential. Rex, I really thought we had a QB, Grossman. Yesterday while reviewing all the comments about the schedule, I thought that this group is as positive as can be about the upcoming year. With this being said and the average prediction being somewhere around 10-6, (I did not calculate this, its a guess.)(BTW I think 11-5) its logical to translate this into who The Bears pick in the 2013 NFL Draft. My theory here is with who The Bears already had, and who was added, we are not far away from a title. So...with this in mind, why not go for broke. Also, contrary to the idea of adding depth through the draft, look at the relative ease by which Emery did this with FA's. Please consider the reasonable trades that could be made with the roster and the picks we have. Without weakening the roster, who would be YOUR ideal player(s) to draft that will help win a title next year? For example it is probably not reasonable to say we have the ammo to draft number 1,2,3 without weakening the roster. However it might be reasonable to trade #20 a 4th & 5th rounder and Hester for two 2nd rounders and a 3rd or some combination thereof. Then pick something like: Brian Schwenke, Khaseem Greene and Ryan Swope etc. A trading partner is necessary, ie SF could do this and the trade value chart indicates this trade has the approximate math. This is where anything goes. This is not a prediction, this is a wish list. Please comment with your ideas. Not cool, give me a thumbs down, I tried.
