Probably not going to watch much of the bowl game tonight but wondering if there are any players on the Oregon or K-State teams we should be keeping our eye on?

I know that Oregon has a tall skinny DE that's projected to be a 1st round pick but I don't think we're really in the market for that this year. Anyone else?

I dont know whether Manning retires either. Tagging Clady would cost a lot of dinero. With Manning's big contract that could present a huge problem. I think there is more to this worthy of keeping a close eye on it.

But in the end Emery has to come up with a solid LT and there are a lot of variables out there that could affect the situation. Would you give Denver #20 for Clady? I think so. At #20 you arent going to get the player there that will impact our team like Clady would.

I would spend big money on Clady before I'd spend it on Long, that's for sure.

Branden Albert or Jermon Bushrod, too.

Yeah...  don't think for a moment that Emery isn't trying to dig up some info on possible FA leads while he's talking to these guys from Denver, New Orleans, etc.

Griz,

I believe you are right.  Elam has Ed Reed type potential at S.  Wether he develops into that play over time depends on his work ethic, coaching, etc.  The guy will definitely be a game changer if utilized properly and he stays heathy.

It's almost impossible to predict right now what defensive players (if any) the Bears will target till we know if Marinelli is going to be our DC next season.

Emery's draft board right now for defense is probably a blank slate... as it should be.

Once we know Marinelli's fate we can start slotting in some possible defensive picks though I would suspect and hope that offensive needs (OL, TE, speed WR) will dominate our draft this year.

Too many years of watching Lovie clock mismanagement. We've developed calendar mismanagement

LOL. At what point do we call a timeout cause we couldnt get the pick in in time?
