This guy does not have the measurable....but I see a football player.  I think Pace knows talent.

So what are the Cons on Whyte?  He looks like he has some wiggle to go with the jets....could be very exciting.

The more I read about Montgomery the more I like.  And Shelley looks like a Bryce Callahan replacement.  Who was the 5'8" guy who played CB for a number of years, with Peanut I think???  Maybe this kid will be that good too.  Still scratching my head on the Ridley pick.  If he was hands down the BPA I guess ok, but it seems that there must have been someone else we could have used more there....

How does Emanual Hall not get drafted. 6' 3" and 22 and 24 yards per catch the last 2 years.

He was injured a little bit.

Greg Gabriel said Hall's reputation is "he didn't play unless everything is just right"

Casey Bednarski sounds like a Chicago kicker at least.

WR competition is going to be fierce between Wims, the 2 Halls, and Ridley.

Just think this was the WRs only 2 years ago...

Kendall Wright
Kevin White
Deonte Thompson
Tre McBride
Dontrelle Inman
Tanner Gentry
Josh Bellamy

The Bears now have 4 RB/WRs with a shot to make the roster who run a sub-4.40 40: Taylor Gabriel, Marvin Hall, Emanuel Hall, and Kerrith Whyte.

Two more - Tarik Cohen and Cordarrelle Patterson - ran a 4.42 at the Combine.

Do you think they've prioritized adding speed?

Speed kills, so yeah I believe they prioritized it in the draft and UDFA. Now they have to coach that talent up on the field.

I've always contended that the Bears over the years lacked game breaking speedsters on offense and defense. 

I was out of town this weekend and haven't read much about the draftees, but the first 2 picks tell me that Pace wants to open up the offense and is not so concerned about the depth on defense (as in prioritizing drafting next year's safety to replace Ha Ha or gettng a backup CB for Fuller and Amukamora).   With all the fanfare of Trubisky and Nagy's offense they still were ranked in the bottom 3rd of the league. 

I can't believe Ridley was there in the 4th.  Crazy.   I know he had a disappointing 4.58 40 time but then again Ju Ju Schuster ran a 4.54 and got drafted at the very end of round 2.  The two have some similarities.

As for Montgomery many have already pointed out similarities with Kareem Hunt.  Both ran around a 4.63 40 at the combine, but dropped it into the 4.5s at their pro-day (Montgomery ran a 4.57).  Not Jamaal Charles but fast enough.

And speaking of running backs with speed.  Bears drafted FAU's Kerrith Whyte.  He's faster than Bears speedsters Taylor Gabriel and Tarik Cohen.   Not sure he will get many touches as a HB, but he might give Patterson a run for his money returning kicks.

My big surprise out of the draft - no lineman - offensive or defensive.
