Who Do We Draft?

As Chicago and most of us on here attempt to shake off a hangover that could slay a whale, remember to smile. We finally have a good quarterback. And since Jerry really wanted that collective apology from Bear Nation, he signed Pace an hour later. Unreal.

Now that we have Cutler, two things are crystal clear: 1) we still need to get another WR and 2) draft day won't be as exciting this year. But, I'll still address some of the positions you all have tossed out.

WR

This one is fairly obvious: We have Cutler, we have Forte, and we have below-average receivers.

Kenny Britt may fall to us, but I'm not holding my breath. After that, we're looking at Brian Robiskie, Juaquin Iglesias, and Brandon Tate. Personally, I think we definitely need to grab a WR with the 2nd round pick.

OL

Since the Pace signing, here's how our offensive line looks:

Pace - LT

Omiyale - LG

Kreutz - C

Beekman/Garza - RG

C-Will/Shaffer - RT

In order to protect our new investment, we could grab Duke Robinson if he's still around. Do we want to go OL with our first pick after already signing three linemen?

S

I won't lie: I really like Sean Smith from Utah (click for my breakdown of him). He's tall and possesses some pretty decent speed.

However, I'm also a realist. I'm not sure that he'll be around at our 2nd round spot. There are other CB/S prospects we can pick up later; they just might not be as good as Smith.

But enough blabbering from me....what's our focus for the 2nd and 3rd round selections?
