What would everyone say are our biggest needs?

Offense: QB, LT, RT, C, WR

Defense: CB, SS, ILB, DE, OLB

QB is #1.   Now that could be either through the draft, trade or free agency.

After that, it's WR, IF A-Rob walks.  If he's retained, Bears need an offensive tackle.  It's going to be tough to replace Leno at LT, so it might be a RT that might eventually slide to LT.

Defensively, SS stands out.  Its a big need since we don't have one.  However, it doesn't need to be addressed with a top pick.  Maybe a 5th rounder coupled with a FA.  Maybe bring back Gipson.

A corner would be nice.  May be one that could replace Skrine and eventually replace Fuller.  I liked what I saw in Vildor, not as much with Shelley.  But both are young.

Quinn is going to be back because of his cap.  And we'll get to see more of the other Gipson.  We've got so much money invested in OLB, but that's the most important position on defense.

Teams typically don't spend high draft picks on 3-4 ILBs.  We need to find one somehow to replace Trevathan...possibly.  He's good on running downs but can be exposed on passing downs.

3-4 lineman.  Jenkins, Robertson-Harris and Urban are FAs - they will need to be replaced.  Hicks, goldman and Nichols return.

Daniels looked really good before he got hurt. Whitehair is good at G, not so good at C.
We could upgrade on Mustipher at C, but I'm more concerned about our lack of playmakers at WR and Trevathan's decline.
Those are holes that have to be addressed.

Left tackle, right tackle, center. Then CB, S, WR, and ILB.

So we are going to fill 30 positions with 6 draft picks and 10 million cap? I dont think so.

QB, LT, LG, C, RG, RT

I dont see that draft working nor do I see the Bears trading up in the 1st for a QB. Just too many holes.

With that knowledge I'd expect the Bears to promote Bray to 1st string

I bet they trade back for more picks before they will trade up.

Probably resign Mitch to a bonus laden contract and go with Mith and Foles next year.  Get a project QB later in the draft.  Work on linemen in this draft.

That is just my guessing.

Trading out of the 1st sounds very likely. 30 players to replace sounds just to prohibitive with 6 picks

It could be tough if Bears use draft capital to address QB.  Plus salary cap situation is tough to sign FAs.  We all know Leno needs to be replaced but we may also need to replace A-Rob and unless you are dedicating a first round pick to LT you are taking a big risk.  Even dedicating a first round pick is a crapshoot.  Or have you forgotten Stan Thomas, Chirs Williams, Gabe Carimi and Marc Colombo.

Now wipe the coffee off your shirt you filthy animal.

I don't know that Whitehair was that bad at center.  Maybe he was when he played next to Coward and Ifedi.

I think Daniels is our LG and Whitehair moves to RG.  Mustipher was kind of thrown in there so maybe after another year he gets bigger/stronger.  Bars is also an option at center, but the Bears may draft an interior lineman on day3 and bring in some undrafted FAs.
