Montez and Throckmorton are garbage.

I wouldn’t take either of them in the 12th round.

I dont like those two either. I didnt post that link because I liked it. I posted it because Miller made it and someone might be interested enough to read it.

Very interesting read. Seems the Bears are an open book.

This cought my eye bigtime

SB Nation

No. 43: TE Cole Kmet, Notre Dame
No. 50: QB Jake Fromm, Georgia

especially Fromm

As a ND fan I've seen every game Kmet has played in.  He doesn't block well enough for Shaheens role and he's not a good enough receiver for the Burton role.  I think he eventually evolves into a pretty good in line tight end, but it's going to take a couple of years.  The Bears need an immediate contributor from both of those 2s.

Ive seen Kmet but havent seen the Purdue TE. To be quite honest, I didnt post that to say I was totally in favor of that, just that somebody realized the Bears need a pretty good QB as well as a TE.

I hope the combine answers some of the TE questions.

I would be surprised if we draft a QB at 2.  At 4 or later, yes.  This will be Trubisky's make or break year.  If the offense sputters again, there will be chatter to draft with a 1 next year.  The offense was so bad n every level, that laying this on any one factor is not a true assessment.  We need much better offensive line play, a tight end or two, a speed receiver, and better play calling.  Everything was broken.

I'd advocate tight end, offensive line, edge rusher, and defensive backfield help with our top two choices.

This is why I posted that to show that the cat is out of the bag. This is likely a consensus of what League GM's believe that the Bears are thinking or doing. But its obvious to the League that the Bears have QB problems. Daniel and 3rd stringer are FAs. Usually such a team has a backup starter and likely will bring in a QB from the draft. And with 1st stringer with one foot in the grave the importance of a higher drafted QB tends to be more apparent to League officials, not necessarily what the Bears will do.

None of these guys would I invest in a 2nd round pick except Fromm, still they are worth scouting at the combine. I hope we invest the 4th round compensation pick we get on a QB. We have too many

other needs that need to be addressed.

Sure would be hard to pass up Jonathan Taylor RB in the second round.

I had one of my supervisors that works for me come in the office this morning asking me how I felt about Chicago trading Mack to the Deadskins for the #2 pick.  I almost sent him for a drug test.  He said that it's all over the DC rumor boards.

I told him I haven't heard anything about it and he was nuts.  Certainly nothing out of Chicago news about it.  Has anyone heard any such nonsense?
