dll2000 Posted December 8, 2022 Share Posted December 8, 2022 Way too early as many guys will get resigning/tagged etc. Cavaet - I don't study these guys of course. I don't have time. I do watch a lot of games on condensed view. But without broadcast and replays hard to always know who is doing what. And it is a very quick watch. But I do have some general knowledge of league and I notice things. Probably more than a lot of these beat reporters, tweeters, bloggers and youtubers actually do. Seems like they mostly get their info from PFF or each others articles. Bears need to remake their DL and add to OL. I wouldn't take any top FA over 27 on DL. They start getting injured way too much past that age. OL can last longer. Bears targets: Bears need a new DL - their current one is embarrassing. For record I wanted Bears to sign BJ Hill last offseason, who didn't sign for that much in CIN. He has been a good player for them. There aren't great edge options - there almost never are. But there are some good interior players that may hit market. 1) Daron Payne - go for him first I think if he hits open market. 2) Poona Ford - this guy may be under radar a bit since Seattle doesn't get a lot of media attention, but he is a decent player. 3) Dalvin Tomlison - He's 28 - but I would take him too for right price since he is close to my cut off. 4) A-Shawn Robinson - 28 too. Depends on price. Edge: 1) Only top guy on market that isn't old is Marcus Davenport. Injury prone. Only has 0.5 sacks this year. Still a top talent. You can see him just toss guys out of way on some reps. Had 9 sacks last year. Rolling dice with this guy. Since he is only one on market he may cost too much and make him more risky than Poles is comfortable with. NO fans don't like him which is a big red flag usually. A lot of that is him being hurt and not producing much after they traded a first for him. 2) Arlen Key. Not as talented as Davenport, because Davenport is a lot stronger. But Key has some upside potential still because of his length and speed. Not a lot write home about though in terms of production and probably is close to what he is. OL 1 ) Elton Jenkins Versatile OL for Packers. Would be a huge upgrade at C for us. 2) Orlando Brown, JR. - Wanted him in draft. He has been on record as only wanting to play LT because it was his dad's dying wish or something, but he is better at RT. He was an all-pro level RT at Baltimore. Depends on his price and his attitude. If we could get him at an okay price and get him to play RT that would be ideal. Don't really want him otherwise. Has annoyed coaches wanting his way on things. Still has a stigma as being a bad athlete from draft. He performs though. 3) Conklin - I took him as Bears GM in Forum Wide Draft. Then I pounded table for him when he hit FA first time. He is starting to pile up injuries now and I am not so sure about him anymore. Risky, but I wouldn't hate it for right price. WR WR FA class kinda sucks. Hence the trade for Claypool I guess. 1) Ju-Ju Smith Shuster is only one I see that I like, but he is really just a good number 3 WR in the league. Still legit starting caliber player. 2) DJ Chark - I wanted him this year. But still hasn't shown all that much in Detroit this year, but their QB play is bad too. He is still talented and youngish and produced before. I think he is better than our current journeyman still due to length and speed and past production. 1 year deal.
