My biggest takeaway after one round of the NFL Draft is that it must be a fun time hanging out at the Vrabel house.
My next takeaway is that there was a lot of talent left on the board, which happens every year, so the Chicago Bears should be in prime position to get two game-changers with their two selections in round two. Even if they finagle a trade back with one of those picks, there should still be enough talent to snag two guys that can make an immediate impact this season.
The Draft will get started at 6:00 p.m. Central time tonight, so enjoy the festivities!
We’ll have immediate write-ups on each player the Bears draft, we’ll have a grades article up ASAP, a Twitter reactions post on each pick, plus a video/GIF breakdown for every player, plus we’ll be sharing the scouting reports from their college SB Nation sites (when applicable) so keep it locked right here at Windy City Gridiron all night.
While you’re here hanging out tonight, crank up some EJ Snyder and Brett Kollmann doing a live-stream from their Football Bootleg YouTube channel.
