WE signed Kyle DeVan off the street and started him the first 4 weeks of last season. Why? Because of a rookie who wasn’t quite maturing quickly enough, and because we had to move Todd Herremans out to RT; due to Winston Justice not being up to playing, and King Dunlap not being ready for prime time. Close your eyes and think about the second string Offensive Line….Now stop screaming.
Free Safety depth has been an absolute mess since even before Dawkins left after 2008.
Who carries the load if LeSean McCoy goes down?
As far as bodies we’re stocked at DE, DT, WR and LB. Some of the other units on the other hand could use an infusion of hungry, young, talent to plug in when the bumps and bruises start to set in.
I’m all for grabbing playmakers in the first two rounds, but once we get to round three we need to be sure that what happened to the 7-3 Bears in 2011 (Cutler AND Forte going down and the Bears finishing 8-8) doesn’t happen to us in 2012.
Priorities in this draft after Round Two: OT, G/C, RB, blocking TE, CB/FS and a KR, a FB (it would be a nice add another blocker who can consistently hit moving targets on kick returns).
