Well actually its gunna be a O lineman. If we can sort out the line we will see a massive improvement. Yes we need some game changers because we have one currently but gotta walk before you can run and all.

Or in Bensons case move in any forward direction without falling over.

Right, look at the draft board. I picked up Albert for us in the first but Nicks and Baker are already gone :s. Flacco is gone. I hate Henne. We need a OT. The 2 RB's i like are Kevin Smith and Matt Forte.

So, do i go Chilo Rachal and in the hope Albert could play RT. Go for a WR or reach for a back? HELP!

Good read. I agree but prefer to take a G/OT with second. I agree about lack of FA movement.

Who would you like for RB? I would like Forte as i think he can be a feature back in the NFL.

For me the OT question is intriguing. Do we either go Otah who will be likely be a good RT for a long time.
Williams who may just play a little soft. I really like dominant lineman and Williams has bust potential higher than that of any first round OT imo.
Or Albert, who is my personally choice. He will be a starter, is dominant and can play left tackle. Chilo Rachal in the second or Nicks if he is available.

My first choice draft would be:

1) OT/G = Clady(if he somehow drops), Albert and then Williams.
2) G/OT = Nicks, Rachal (If we take OT in the first Rachal and viceversa)
3a) RB = Forte, Kevin Smith
3b) WR = Best avail. Want more of a big possesion receiver
4) QB) If Josh Johnson or Woodson are available then they must be taken.
5) G = Best avail
6) DT/S = Best avail
7)WR WR DT OT.

I like your thinking overall for your draft predictions. Though I'd prefer to take an o-line man first if Mendenhall is still there at 14 I'd be tempted to take him being an Illinios guy......

If your o-line is right then the chances are your run blocking and pass blocking will help the players you already have. Benson is an engima who was shocking last year but outplayed Jones in the SB run. It wouldn't surprise me if we drafted a RB high then Benson plays his socks to win the starters job.....

I think in the first we should go for Otah or Williams (I would prefer Williams, to be honest) and in the second I would preferrably like to see us come away with Flacco.

However, his stock's been rising for a while, so he might not be around; but other than Brohm or Flacco, I really doubt any QB picked up this year by the Bears will make a big splash in the NFL.

Flacco and Bohm should be gone by our second.

Hmm Benson outplayed Jones? Benson got alot of easy yards imo. Jones did alot of hard early work and Benson got alot of carries late on.

Benson is not a feature back. But our Oline is dying. It is far too old and we need to inject 3/4starters into in the next 2years.

I would love it if we could go out and choose skill positions but sadly our team is in no state to do it imo.
