at corner, Charles Tillman is a lock and Tim Jennings is more or less set; D.J. Moore is probable. i'm willing to guess that Hayden and Wilhite battle for a spot if the Bears draft a corner, or both stick if the Bears don't. either way, that's two more corners for a total of five.
at safety, Chris Conte, Craig Steltz, and Major Wright are givens. that leaves one spot at safety. there are three guys on the roster, but mostly meh:
- Winston Venable, UDFA (2011) -- active 12 games
- Anthony Walters, UDFA (2011) -- active 4 games
- Donovan Warren, futures contact (1/2012) -- likely TC fodder
drafting a safety is essentially a lock.
Mark Barron should be there at #19, but i believe the Bears are focused on the defensive line unless someone surprisingly slips.
if Harrison Smith is available at #50, i think they'll bite. otherwise, much as i might like to see the Bears take Boise State's George Iloka and coach him up, i believe they'll do the same thing they did last year -- take a Pac-10 DB with some corner experience considerably earlier than most of us thought he should go.
