Bears Pick Joel Iyiegbuniwe in the 5th

Recommended Posts

We are bringing back Houston and maybe willie Young back. Def a bit dissapointing.

If they sold me on this guy as a strong safety with the ability to cover and hit, I think I might like it more.

Does this mean the Bears didn't like their ILB play last year. I don't understand this pick. This means Timu might be done. Wow i thought they needed an edge rusher and a big DL for depth.

ILB was the position group that everybody wanted to ignore because it didn’t look bad on paper.

I’ve harped over and over that the defense looked significantly worse over the past two years when Trevethan was out of the lineup.

Defensive speed on the 2nd level was clearly a big need in the coaches eyes.

Dude said he wants to play inside.

I want a lot of things. It doesn’t mean I’m going to get them.

The short video blurb on NFL.com mentioned him as a possible late 2nd through 4th pick. The dude was hella-productive and brings more speed. CYA for when DT is hurt/ leaves next year.

No Timu? Might as well chalk up a 2-14 season now

No Timu is a good thing.

LOL was gonna say myself since when was anyone ever concerned about Timu...the same guy who's bounced up and down from the practice squad the past couple of seasons?

I mean the guy is a decent depth player but cmon...

They clearly had issues with the speed at ILB.

Timu is a goner and I am sure they thing that Iggy can be a starter down the road and in the meantime he is adding speed to special teams and if they need to pay him.

Timu is not even decent depth. He is a non NFL player.

Not sure what to think about this pick.  LB was/is still a need.  For some reason, I'm thinking Hillenmeyer with this guy, as in HH is his ceiling.  Who knows, he could be a quality player.
