  1. 3 Draft Scenarios, Pick Your Favorite

    My thought process 1. I want to pick Trumaine Edmunds because our LB core needs some serious juice. 2. My brain kicks in and says " do not over think this" there are 4 elite non-QBs in the draft. Chubb, Nelson, Fitzpatrick, Barkley. 3. We invested a ton of cash in the secondary 4. This is all about Mitch Quenton Nelson
  2. 2018 Free Agency targets

    Meredith is better than that. He will be the 2nd most targeted player this season. Although I expect Cohen will be close. The Colts are desperate they have been rejected by everyone. 4th round WRs often do nothing.

    White can high five guys on the sideline. The money doesn’t bother me, the targets are there for everyone. Let’s not overthink having “too many” weapons. I am just worried the Colts are going to try and make a splash with him. In which case saving the 1 million is a bad move. I think Cam wants to stay and will give the Bears a chance to match.

    The only thing that worries me is how desperate the Colts are to do something and stop getting turned down.

    Losing Cam Meredith because the Bears saved 1 million on a RFA tender would really be a massive mistake by Pace. If he was not prepared to match any offer he should have given him the 2nd round tender.

    Cam Meredith took a FA visit to the Colts. They are a legit threat to take him.

    I don’t think either got flagged and recalled to Indy so not sure I buy it.

    For me it really comes down to what option you prefer 1) Trumaine Edmunds 2) James Daniels or 1) Quenton Nelson 2) Lorenzo Carter I am fine with either, but 1 seems more realistic and a better value.

    I think you take Edmunds because he can do everything. He is a player that can Ben deployed all over the field and in different matchups. He would obviously rush some times, but his value would also be in covering athletic TEs and running the seam in zone. I would play home at ILB and in nickel I would leave him, Floyd, Hicks and Lynch on the field and they can guess who is coming from where.

    3 Drafts is enough to see some trends. Not sure that we see an aggressive move in the 1st round this year for "the guy" this is the first draft where is starting without a premium pick.
  12. 2018 Draft Prospects

    Based on tendencies we have seen what I would expect 1. Defensive Super Athlete with a ton of upside 2. Trade down and then an OLmen who can start pretty quickly 4. There will be 3 of these after the trade down and the Bears will add 2 players at a need position like LB

    If we look at Pace's draft classes we often see some trends over 3 years that may be helpful in narrowing down who he may be looking at in certain rounds. 1st Round Targets elite athletes -Kevin White, Leanard Floyd, and even Trubisky were elite athletes for their position. Upside is a huge factor -There has been a tremendous amount of projection with all of the 1st round picks in the Pace era. In fact Trubisky and Floyd were largely projected by the media as reaches where they were picked. Production not as valuable -Kevin White had 1 season of production, Floyd had never really produced as a pass rusher, and Trubisky had 13 starts. Clearly experience and production take a back seat to upside and what they become. 2nd Round Trade Downs 2/3 years he had moved down in the 2nd round and in total he has moved down 3 times adding multiple 4th and 5th round picks in the process. This appears to be the area where he feels most comfortable with getting picks back and adding picks. Big Trench Players Eddie Goldman and Cody Whitehair are obvious investments in the trenches and Shaheen is an inline TE that is close. This appears to be a round where he is looking to add players in more lunch pale areas. Day 3 Multiple Picks at a Position -In one draft we have seen 3 picks invested in DBs, we have seen 3 day 3 RBs added in 3 years. He appears to like to put multiple picks at a position of need in day 3 to see if he can land someone who can contribute. Small School Guys -Clearly Pace does not shy away from taking small school projections on day 3. We have seen Kutztown, NC A&T, William and Mary, Northern Iowa in the schools of players drafted. I think he is looking for guys who have not been over scouted and may have some upside to them.

    I think so. He reminds me of a bigger Rodney Hudson. He is just always in good position.

    James Daniels from Iowa. I would take him at 39, start him at C, move Whitehair to OG. The dude has great size 6'3" 295lbs, long arms 34", and he has great athletic ability. We could run zone stretch and screens to both sides.
