Isn't the fact that it was DAVE WANNSTEDT offering the praises enough for anyone to realize that it has to be wrong?

Agreed. This is one bad draft that produced projects and no starters. All the "homers" are in love with Cutler being a rep of the 1st and 3rd round picks, but NE could care less to get 1st rounders. Look at how they are doing and how they stay on top. they win in drafting the late rounds.

If we don't watch out the field turf will be converted to cardboard so we can finally look good on paper for sure.

This franchise has how many HOF players, championships, and fans weighing in from around the nation/globe and we got this? Come on be the franchise that we need to be and deserve to have. Blackhawks did it, CUBS/SOX are both doing great with one having a recent championship, BULLS are rebounding and had a huge title run. Bears need to then go out and build the dynasty.

I think the acquisitions of WRs Inglesias & Kinder and also the huge DT Gillbert were excellent picks, Especially, picking up Kinder was a very slick move - that is, if his knees sound again.
I expect at least one of these receivers and DT Gilbert to become starters this year! I'm really excited about the addition of these three players to the Bears roster.

None of these guys have even practiced in the NFL yet! I will wait and see what they can do before I make a blanket statement that it was a wasted draft. I think Iglesias, Gilbert, Moore and Knox will be contributers this year,not stars but solid players.
