Both posts have been restored...I assume wmljohn deleted them without reading them thoroughly to see the picks...

Yes.  They were not supposed to be there.  The rule was, If you were not there for the pick the conversation was a draft conversation and not a pick prediction when the Bears were on the clock.

This was a bomb anyway.  No one was even around after the second pick so I even gave up following and policing it.

BTW I think I accidentally deleted one today.  :(

But I didn't think this was for pick prediction necessarily, but rather a "who would you have chosen at that time?"...which could be posted right after the draft or any time before they started playing...

No i think this was a contest thread... call your shot before the pick...

Yes.  It was set up to make the pick of available players when they were on the clock.  No one reads rules...

#5 When the Chicago Bears are on the clock is when you make your pick of available players.
#6 After the Bears pick is announced you will not be allowed to make a pick.

All the I liked, or didn't like, or I would have, or they should have stuff was for the draft topic.

I think there is value in keeping some of this going.  Too much "why did we draft this guy, when this guy was available talk"  Making a selection in favor or against, we can revisit who supported the pick at the time... or didn't

The problem with this was having to make the pick while Bears were on the clock.  You have no idea how much time you have.  Why not just have everyone post whom they would have taken at the pick, even if it is after the fact?

That’s what I though the plan was...much better than trying to guess who the Bears are going to pick.

I thought the idea was that years down the road, we could look back and say “well, they should have taken my guy” or “damn, glad they took him instead of my guy”...

I chose Edmunds over Smith but unless none just flat busts, I doubt we will ever know which pick was best. I expect Smith to have a bigger impact faster but Edwards could have more upside.

I actually am fine with Smith over Edmunds. I thought he was the more solid pick before the draft. Now that a lot of information about Smith is coming out, I like the pick even better. I am believing Pace was smarter than I thought he was. Will Edmunds be a success in the NFL? I really cant say. I just think he is more plyable. Its hard to say what he becomes. That is not saying Smith cant learn new tricks. I see Smith now as a leader on the field which I didnt see before.  I think we got a stud, a difference maker.

When Nelson went before us I felt the correct thing to do was trade down, which we didnt do. I am very Ok with Smith who I liked over Edmunds before the draft.

So far, the real angst I hear is from drafting the player (whose name I cannot spell) in the 4th round, while there were some other potential edge rusher prospects available.

I think generally, everyone is pretty satisfied with Smith, Daniels, and Miller.  No?
