They did get OL and DL as UDFAs, in fact 2 of our OLine coach's players at ND and they did get some CB and S in the draft and UDFA. Its now up to coaching.

One thing I was always amazed about the Pack was their seeming ability to plug in WRs from seemingly from nowhere. Looks like we are heading that way too

They got a fast but smallish potential nickel back and a total project at safety who has outstanding measurables.  Shelley has a chance since his stock dropped due to an injury his senior year but its tough to expect much from 7th rounders and the UDFAs.

Coaching.....its all about coaching now. How many times have we seen it with the Bears that we draft players with measurables high and they fizzle and flop. How about the guy they drafted who could jump out of pools.

I think we are getting more intelligent on how we draft and what we draft

Pace is an improvement over Angelo, but Pace's 4 drafts have produced not quite half of the starters on offense and defense.  He's done a better job at signing FAs.

Finding starters via the draft and UDFAs is tougher than you think.

Right just look at Belicheks drafts.  He accumulates picks because he has no strong opinion on anybody.

One year he had 17 picks and 3 years later none of them were on the roster.

And how about the Mack trade? Pace saw the need and the record took a massive jump. Pace has done a fantastic job improving the team.

We are already one WR short from last year, White, who moved on to greener pastures. There is one roster spot immediately. Ridley? Could very well be. However, some of these players can play on special teams till they develop.

We actually lost 2 receivers: White and Bellamy.

Bears added veteran FAs:  Cordarrelle Patterson and Marvin Hall.   Drafted Riley.  And recently undrafted rookie FAs:  The speedster Emanuel Hall and Thomas Ives

Riley should be a lock along with Gabriel, Robinson and Miller.  So that leaves maybe 2 spots that Wims may have a bunch of competition for if the Bears keep 6 wideouts.  Maybe 7 if Patterson wins the kick returner job (over rookie Whyte) and the Bears keep only 3 halfbacks.

My point is there is an opening, that the roster isnt set and just because we drafted one WR doesnt mean we dont have an opening. Are the Bears satisfied with their receiving corp? Apparently not. It needs to be improved.

UDFA.  I really am starting to drink the cool aid.  Our scouts and GM are vastly improved over anything I can remember.  I would not be surprised if this kid makes the team.

I watch a lot of SEC football.  Two years ago, Wims was the stud of the Georgia wide receivers with Riley on that squad.  Why he slipped to 7th round, I don't know, but I wouldn't undersell him.

That Picket video looks great.  I wonder why he went undrafted??
