Well, if you go with the so called experts this is a slam dunk.

25.  Chicago Bears - TE Marcedes Lewis (UCLA)...The Bears could use a Top-Flight TE that could stretch a Defense vertically.

The Bears offense looks much better with Grossman under center, but even Grossman will need more targets next season. Lewis might not be the best all around tight end, but he is the best receiver in this draft class and could really open up the Bears offense. The other option is obviously to bring in a wide receiver.

Finally, a little variety.

  Sometimes it is hard to determine which side of the ball a team will address with their first round pick, but that isn't the case here. There is little doubt that the Bears defense ranks right up there with the best in the league, however the offense is on the other end of the spectrum and still needs some work. Right now their basic philosophy is to run the ball and let the defense take them home, but in order to allow the offense the opportunity to hold up their end of the bargain more playmakers are needed. Last offseason the team did a nice job of adding Muhsin Muhammad, Mark Bradley and Cedric Benson, not to mention Kyle Orton and upgrading the offensive line, but the work is far from done. One thing that can really help an offense, especially one with a young signal caller, is to bring in a tight end who can be a weapon in the passing game. Leonard Pope is a physical marvel at 6-7 and 250 pounds and is effective as both a pass catcher and blocker, which would mesh in well with what the Bears like to do on offense. There is an outside chance they could bring in some youth along the offensive line as well but at the end of the day this team needs guys who can help move the chains and put points on the board so Pope would be a great addition for them this late in round one.
