So would you rather have Colston or VJackson?  That might be the question.

Jackson.

I have watched Colston fumble once and drop another in the endzone tonight.

 1. Keep Cutler upright

 2. Help Cutler toss

 Pick in either order in the first 2 rounds.

 WR/OL

 OL/WR

 The problem is we dont know who the GM is.  ???

If the GM is Ruskell I am becoming a Packers/Patriots fan.  I cant believe I just said that, but it is true.

Signing guys like that is no big deal.  Especially with all the money the Bears are under the cap.

Ruskell is in charge until someone else is hired.  If he is named GM I will be pissed.  Until then I will reserve judgement.

I ahve no problem with Tice being OC.  That only means we keep the same terminology which I was very in favor of.  I did not want Cutler and the offensive players learning an entirely new system.  Much better to adapt the one we have.

 5 Offensive Linemen worth taking a look at.

1. Matt Kalil, T, USC: There is a reason Tyron Smith, the Cowboys' first-round pick this year, played right tackle instead of on the left side. Kalil is that reason.

2. Jonathan Martin, T, Stanford (Jr.): One of the top left tackles in the nation. At 6-6, 310 pounds, he is the one who protects Luck's blindside. He has great feet and the system helps his stock.

3. Matt Reynolds, T, BYU: He has good size at 6-6 325 pounds and he has good feet in pass protection. Plays in a pro-style offense, which helps.

4. Nate Potter, T, Boise State: He's 6-6, 300 pounds and he plays in a pro-style offense where he does a lot of pass protection. That will help his value. A lot like Nate Solder, who went in the first round last year.

5. Riley Reiff, T, Iowa (Jr.): He has been a starter since he was a freshman. The NFL loves Iowa linemen because they are so well coached.

We could use one of those drafts where we have 15 picks- we're that depleted in talent. Angielow really let this club sink in terms of talent level. We've got some talent in spots but it's older talent and there's nothing in reserve like most top teams have. We've got a empty tank thanks to him....
