 Boogie,I think you may be right about Eiselen of Yale. That guy is a brute. He doesn't stop blocking till he puts his man to the ground. He moves down field well also. Just holds those blocks till the whistle blows. Displays some nastiness,maybe from his rugby years? He's got to be well conditioned cuz at 310lbs I see no signs of a gut. Maybe Pace lucked out.

That's what Pace was saying about Adam Shaheen.  When you watch the hilights you have to consider the level of competition these guys are facing.

Simmons has the body, its Castillo's job to find out. And yeah, Tennessee State isnt Ohio State but the competition is greater than the school that Shaheen went to. And just to set you straight

Tennessee State is the same school Richard Dent went to. So in the words of the immortal Mike Ditka, Who are you crapping?

First of all, you can't count on any rookie being worth a damn.  I can give you a list from players taken in the first round every year (unfortunatey Bear fans know this list too well).

Secondly,  looks can be deceiving.   Ever hear the line "Looks like Tarzan plays like Jane"?

Third, kids from smaller schools  have a harder time making it in the NFL.  It happens like Dent in 1983, but its just not very common.

Every team (and ever fan) thinks they just drafted or signed 10 or 12 potential starters.   Depth charts look the best this time of year.

Now having said all that - hell yeah I'm looking forward to Simmons as I am all the guys the Bears have drafted/signed.

Again I repeat, its what the player has. And its Castillo's job to get it out of him if he has it. And NO, I never considered Simmons to be a starter this year and NO I never said that. And Yeah just making the roster being depth is a start in the right direction.

I doubt any of the rookies drafted or undrafted start day 1.

I think Kmet and Johnson will both be starting if we have a full training camp.

Its possible, especially Johnson. More likely they will ease them in giving starters a rest

On defense, corner is one of the easiest positions to start a rookie.  But I think Tolliver has paid his dues and will get the nod.  Plus with all the 4 and 5 WR sets Johnson will get his opportunties.  And Johnson is coming off that labrum surgery but I've heard the Bears say he will be fine by the start of the season.   

Where have we heard that before?

Kmet just turned 21 - may take him a while to absorb the playbook, plus I heard he has a ways to go as a blocker.   But I don't know that Graham is known as a good blocker either but most likely will be able to pickup the offense faster.  Plus with dual TE formations Kmet will have his opportunities.   

Not worried about either of these guys' playing time.  I'm hoping Mooney and Gipson can be part of the rotations.

Stacey Dales was just on NFLN reporting that the Bears are hoping to use Mooney the same way the Chiefs use Tyreek Hill...

And you just know Nagy's gonna call a bunch of passes to Mooney along the line of scrimmage.

Sadly we know him too well.  My favorite...3rd and 1...shotgun and empty or near empty backfield.

Or the 3rd quarter drive with a heavy mix of I formation and play action.  Leads to a score, and then put all of that away for the rest of the game.
