    Your Chicago Bears: still learning about this newfangled thing called the "forward pass."

    a little unrealistic, i think. hmm.

    # 20: Star Lotulelei, dt, Utah. a clear-cut case of BPA, even though it's not a huge need.

    # 50: Arthur Brown, lb, Kansas St. best LB on the board, and i'm tickled to land him here.

    #117: Hugh Thornton, g, Illinois. i think he's plug-and-play at either G spot.

    #153: Chris Harper, wr, Kansas St. this is my pound-on-the-table guy, TBH. he's worth a Day 3 flyer.

    #188: Adrian Bushell, cb, Louisville. best corner left on my board. decent coverage guy with decent ball skills.


    EDIT: looking past #253, i'd try to bring in T.J. Johnson, c, South Carolina; Jack Doyle, te, W Kentucky; Marquis Jackson, de, Portland St; Vinston Painter, t, Virginia Tech; Alex Carder, qb, W Michigan; and Phillip Steward, olb, Houston.

    # 20....Star Lotulelei DT Utah: yeah we Franchised Melton, so what...thats a 1 year deal right?
    # 50....Arthur Brown LB Kansas State: Getting him in the 2nd would be a steal, even if he is a bit on the smaller side
    #117...Alvin Bailey OG Arkansas: Strong guy who can also block in space (ie when pulling)
    #153...Denard Robinson WR Michigan: Playmaker with Speed and Agility...hard to pass up when you get this late in the draft.
    #188...Melvin White CB Louisiana-Lafayette: Not listed in the GBN top 300, but I like him for his height and where he's from and who he's compared to...http://www.nfl.com/draft/2013/profil...ite?id=2539251
    Odd Facts:

    The human brain is incapable of producing a face. Any face you see when you dream is one that you have physically viewed at some point in your life.

    The Australian aborigine language has over 30 words for “dust.”

    Nearly three percent of the ice in Antarctic glaciers is penguin urine.

    When you see little white or clear dots floating in your vision, they are actually your own white blood cells.

    Interesting that you got the first two right, then you got the positions right but got the names wrong...

    Wow. Is it a rule that you must pick at particular positions in each round? How boring.
    Wouldn't it be great if we booted the 200 lawyers from the House and Senate and replaced them with economists? That way, we'd stop harming our economy with laws that would apply to the politicians, too.

    Man, the Bears are so ****ed only having 5 draft picks with the lack of young talent they have.
    The word "hero" is frequently abused badly. This is a real hero.

    I don't think we are THAT bad off with young talent. We ARE that bad of when you consider Young + Tied Up talent, and general cap health. The guys I really care about keeping (young and old) all have contracts coming up in the next 1-2 years.

    Admittedly I know next to nothing about non-star named players or players that weren't brought up on the board. I guess I need to watch more college ball.
