Mel Kiper has us drafting Sam Baker.
I see the Bears drafting Sam Baker in the 1st round, we always go for the most important things we need to fix, like our Offensive Line over QBs.
^:yeahthat:If Jake Long somehow falls to us, we take him. I think to fortify the other side, if Kirk Barton is there when we pick in the 2nd round, we take him. Along with Kruetz, Metcalf, and Garza, you have a pretty good line with Baker/Long and Barton added in
Array1. Jeff Otah-Pittsburgh-OT
2. Joe Flacco-Delaware-QB
3. Jonathan Hefney-Tennessee-S
4. Jerome Simpson-Coastal Carolina-WR
5. Steve Johnson-Kentucky-WR/Adrian Arrington-Michigan-WR
6. Jamie Silva-Boston College-S
7. Xavier Omon-NW Missouri State-RB
8. Adrian Fleullen-FSU-DT[/quote]

I don't know why we are drafting 2 WR in the middle rounds? Those picks are much more efficently used on OL or adding another DT or S. A few other notes I don't think Flacco is worth a 2nd round pick plus he could also go in the 1st round. In the 2nd round I'd rather draft a Felix Jones or Ray Rice. However, if Rice, Hart, or Kevin Smith from UCF were all there in the 3rd round that's when I'd ok going after a QB in the 2nd. Still I feel like there is not enough emphasis on our weaknesses there (OL, S, RB). And as nice as it would be to have another good WR, rookies VERY VERY rarely contribute from this position. I'd rather go single back and 2 TE most downs and use Olsen as a bigger part of the offense.

Just my thoughts for now. I am sure we'll talk a lot more about the draft on Bearscast in the coming months.

RB is not an emphasis. Look what Benson did in 2006 with an OL. Now, he had a piece of s*** line, and we all say he sucks. WR is a bigger need then RB, especially if Berrian goes somewhere else in FA.
WR may be a bigger need, but the draft is not a place where you can fix WR for this year. They'd need to sign a free agent and hope Bradley and Hester step up. No one you can draft is going to fill in for Berrian this year.

James Hardy or Early Doucet are 2 stud WRs who could step right in. Nobody thought the 4th from the last pick in the 2006 draft in Marques Colston would do much in his first year, and I think he did pretty well for the most part.
BTW, I was reading a mock earlier that had a very good idea IMO.

We would give Dallas our first rounder and one of our 2 3rd rounders, and in exchange we'd get their 2 first rounders (#22 and #28). With those 2, we could take Otah at 22, and Hardy at 28. If Hardy isn't there, then either Doucet or Adrius Bowman
Colston is the exception, not the rule. Look at the kid who got drafted #2 last year Calvin Johnson, he's such a stud people were calling him the second coming of Michael Irvin and he struggled in a pass happy offense. You don't find immediate solutions at WR in the draft.

I'm not going to argue, but many receivers from Chad Johnson, to Steve Smith, to TO, all were either taken in round 2 or 3, and all are very good. However, none really had a great rookie season; it took them 2-3 years to get it going. But hey, I'd take that out of a WR we take in the draft.
