So I forgot and missed my chance.  But for the record, I would have taken Roquan Smith.  I love the pick!

I wouldn't think it would matter as long as you didn't make a hindsight pick.

I was out of town all weekend as well...these are my thoughts...

4th round - I would have preferred Josh Sweat, Genard Avery*, Marquis Haynes*

5th round - Tyrell Crosby, Ogbonnia Okoronkwo, Tim Settle*

6th round - Deon Cain, maybe? (I'm quite happy with Fitts)

7th round - Auden Tate, maybe? (I'm quite happy with Wims)

(*) - same position as the guy we drafted

Listening to round 2 on the radio while driving to Illinois, I was hoping for Landry when we made the Daniels pick, and Carter when we made the Miller pick...but I'm ecstatic over how those 2 picks worked out, so no complaints there...

Bears just got to hope Floyd completely recovers and Aaron Lynch can stay healthy.  Besides them the Bears have Acho, last year FAs Irving and Jones, and rookie Kylie Fitts.

This was a huge need going into the draft and wasn't really addressed.  Can't really blame Pace too much as there weren't a lot of quality edge guys drafted this year.  Packers and Lions had the same needs and failed to land any big names either.

Got to get pressure on Rodgers, Stafford and Cousins to slow them down or maybe Pace's strategy is to try to outscore them.

Hard to tell exactly what Pace thinks but, we dropped the ball on our #1 need.

Said I wasn't able to be here during the first pick but that I would have picked Minkah over Roquan but liked the pick they made.

Hey, it was the first year trying this so mmaybe we can tweak it next year a bit.  Mine was deleted also, but I am 100% on board with the pick of Roquan Smith and Javon Wims.

Maybe the rules should be predict the choice for the Bears.  Bragging rights if you get it right.  Next, do you agree with the pick?  If yes, fine.  If not, who would you have chosen instead.  Maybe keep it open for a week after the draft.  So this year, when we picked 4th, there has been a lot of hand wringing with the 4th round ILB.  So ok, who would you have chosen?  Then we track and move forward.

Just a suggestion.

I think part of this is to predict who the Bears will select.  But I also think it is to do away with the, "we should have drafted, player X instead.... revisionists history.  We should have drafted Watson over Trubisky, we should have drafted Kamara over Shaheen, etc
