In his last 2 drafts he's traded up in round 1 and down in round 2.

Defensively, we desperately need CB and OLB.  Offensively, WR and maybe O-line.

I'd like the see the Bears end up with adding a 3rd rounder:  1, 2, 3, 4, 4 would be nice.

I saw a mock today that had the ND OG going at 5.  Just saying.

IMHO thats way too high for an OG, even 15 is high....just saying
That high is reserved for potential all pro LTs and I havent seen any of those in this draft

Plus, we do have Jordan Morgan, last year's 5th rounder, returning from his rookie redshirt year...and Eric Kush is signed thru 2018 but is more of a solid backup at C/G.

And can we squeeze another year out of Sitton and can all the king's men put Kyle Long back together again?

Jordan Morgan, is  he the one who the Bears coached in the Senior Bowl? and Kush is the backup guard/center we desperately missed this past season. Who if anybody is the backup OT who backsup Leno and Massie? If you are going to develop a solid line for next year there is where you invest a draft pick.

Did anyone from Wisconsin's offensive line declare for the NFL draft? They had one of the best I saw.

Still a lot of time for players to move up and down the draft boards.

The Bears OTs were the most healthy of any position last season.  Leno played every snap and Massie got hurt in game 15 and replaced by Bradley Sowell in game 16 (he was the guy that drew the 15 yard penalty for diving at a fallen Viking defender).  Sowell and the other FA veteran lineman Compton have expiring contracts.

Massie is adequate...he's got another year on his deal.  A 3rd or 4th rounder RT this year might be a good idea.

Might even find something in FA to be a swing OT.

that was the CBS mock... they are all over the place, they have the cowboys taking a OT in the 1st... their mock makes almost no sense.

 Remember they have to be 16 game starters.

Ferrell and Bryant are both returning to Clemson next season. This hurts the edge rusher pool quite a bit.

Chubb, Key, and Landry appear to be the top 3 in a much smaller field now...

Every mock draft I've seen has Chubb and Fitzpatrick gone by 8.

But you never know how Baker Mayfield, Lamar Jackson and the QB from Wyoming (who some scouts say has the most ability) will affect the top 10.
