Trade down from 3rd round won't net much I'd guess. Might pick up another pick possibly which wouldn't hurt....

I think Mike Davis is a stud and low millage.

Maybe, but he couldn't earn many carries with a weak 49ers backfield nor a relatively weak Seahawks backfield.

3rd round interior OL tend to be solid career players, ditto for 4th round safety's and RB's.  Take a flyer on talented player with off field issues in round 6th and 7th.

Despite Pace's denial, I think the quest for another RB is greater than he lets on.

I'd lean towards OL, S, or CB with our 3 and 4.  Still some decent veteran RBs out there to bring in post draft.

I'd prefer DB @ 87

That said:

"The Bears have visited with 16 running back prospects, which is tied for the most with the New York Jets. The Kansas City Chiefs (10) and Philadelphia Eagles (9) are behind them."

RB sure shapes up as to where they are looking to use @ 87

Does it make sense for Bears to trade for Robbie Gould?

NO, not really. Rare to deal draft picks for a kicker and we cant afford to give up picks for a 36 year old kicker. That borders on insanity.

Are we overvaluing the halfbacks in this draft?

Could be a run on running backs early in round 4.  Could Pace trade down the 3 and pick up some more ammo?

A trade down from our #87 to the end of round 3 (there's all those comp picks) could net us an additional midish 4th rounder.

And why is ND's Dexter Williams ranked so low?

I will give the 49ers a 7th rounder for Gould.

I would too.  No good K in this draft.

Maybe our 7th next year but not this year. I havent had my insanity pill yet today.

Who? Not me, but IMHO the Bears obviously are. When you have 5 visits with just one candidate and

Are you saying you value a 7th rounder over a pro-bowl, #2 all time accurate kicker that has a history of success in Solider Field? 

I can understand the cap hit issue but I'm thinking you need to take that pill.
