Bears mailbag - Michael C. Wright's readers' Q&A: Should Bears try to trade for Ndamukong Suh?

Dan Pompei Q&A - Better fit for Bears at safety: Jimmie Ward or Deone Bucannon?

Draft preview - Jim Corbett profiles Oklahoma State's Justin Gilbert and takes a look at other notable cornerback prospects.

Draft preview: Defensive ends - Dan Wiederer: If Bears look for draft help here it's likely to be late on Day 3, with their list including Michael Sam, Brent Urban and Zach Moore.

Draft preview - Greg Gabriel reviews the best pass rushers in the class. Is Ra'Shede Hageman #2?

Draft preview: Linebackers - Rich Campbell: Bears could draft linebacker help, but have more pressing needs and high picks on current roster who they still hope will develop.

Draft Preview: QB - Moon Mullin: A late-round selection of a QB is very likely, even though the true "need" is low. The Bears have two sixth-round picks, one of which projects to be a QB.

Draft profile: Wisconsin WR Jared Abbrederis - Could fit in as a nice slot receiver, and carried the ball on end-arounds 11 times for more than 100 yards and a pair of TDs.

Draft profile: San Jose State QB David Fales - A young QB with a strong arm and high upside, would be a long-term project if he lands on the Bears roster this season, but that's exactly what they need.

Draft profile: South Carolina DT Kelcy Quarles - If he slips, don't be surprised if Phil Emery takes a chance on a player who's already battle tested and has experience playing next to a star DE

Draft profile: Clemson WR Martavis Bryant - Been sliding up draft boards as of late, and the Bears likely won’t be in the market for a receiver in the early rounds of the draft.

Draft profile: Alabama SS Vinnie Sunseri - Likely the Bears will draft a safety earlier than where Sunseri, whose junior season was cut short due to a torn ACL, is projected.

Draft profile: Alabama OLB Adrian Hubbard - Solid at the point of attack, but teams may question his ability to rush the passer; has the talent to make things happen if he can put it all together.

Bears Top 30 Draft picks - James Neveau's list makes it to #15 (1996 5th-rounder Chris Villarrial) and #14 (2008 2nd-rounder Matt Forte).
