I know its early to be talking about draft but here is something to read. I don't think safety is our biggest priority.

S, WR, LB, OT.  That isnt too bad.  Could use a CB and OG.

Jake Elliott, either in the 7th or as an UDFA...Connor Barth isn't cutting it for me...

Yeah, still wish we had done this...

And, to top it off...Jake Elliott is from Western Springs (just west of Chicago)...probably raised a Bears fan...

Trubiskey - B-  I think his presence alone has helped lift the team.  They look more inspired these last 3 weeks.  With Glennon in there, there was a wait for the mistake, the sloth.  Mitch has brought energy to the team.  He has made some really good throws, they are just keeping the handcuffs on him.  That throw to Miller today at midfield was a dart.

Shaheen - D  You need more out of a 2nd round choice.  Maybe this is the coaches wanting to have players they trust and not rookies.

Cohen - A-  He contributes a sparkle play every week.  Wait until we have some actual receivers to spread the field.

Jackson - B+  He's coming.  That was a great game today, but he has consistently been playing well and allowing the other defenders to play more free.  He is a surprising hitter.  This may be our best pick since he is on the field every play.

Overall, I would grade this draft a strong B, maybe B+

Oddly enough, Cohen didn't get one rushing attempt Sunday.

 I reiterate my previous post ...


 BUT ... with a lineup in draft order ,


 WR - WR - OL -OL - LB -LB - K


 I love Kyle Long ... but he exits the game with a bent finger.


 That's not even beginning to try.

Actually the announcers said he fought them to stay in the game but they forced him to go to the locker room.  He came back with his entire hand in a cast.  I am guessing it is more then a dislocated finger which is what was reported at the time.

 All the more reason to go OL in the mid round's in 2018.


 We need 16 game starters that can protect our second pick in MT from 2017.


 Man do we need WR's ! MT is handcuffed until he has any.


 So who's the hot WR's in collage ?

2018 early mock:

Time to begin to think about that.

I've been thinking about the draft even before the season started.

I think that mock could change with the 49ers getting Grappollo, but I like the Bears pick at 12.   Lots of first round QBs and I stopped looking at 12.

For the Bears OLB and WR should be the draft priority though Pace will say he'll draft BPA.

And I'd like to see more of Cooper at corner since he's signed for a couple years.  Maybe the Bears flip a coin and sign Amukamara or Fuller and draft a corner in the mid rounds.

 Who keeps getting injured that we can never count on for 16 games ?


 WR WR OL OL LB LB and just for good measure ... K.


 The Cohen - Shaheen experiment has to be viewed in the rear view mirror.


 This time those rounds need stud over performers.

 Also : this forum should reflect that it's the 2018 Draft.

So Shaheen had two catches for 39 yards in the first quarter and was never targeted again.  And Cohen had how many touches 3 or 4?  It is the play calling that is the problem, which is coming from the coaches.  They all need to go.
