Get Robiskie. Good player, great bloodlines, solid character.

Hicks is the right fit for our club. Hester runs deep, and Hicks catches everything. One deep threat, the other possession & Bennett is the wild card.

BEARS!

mayeboy shut up there is nothing wrong with this list he gave you the basics now you go do some research! and if you already know about these guys why are you reading it.... on another note if the bears grab holt the can go secondary round two then wr 3 that guy at #10 from florida might be a steal or maybe the burner from AC we lover small school guys you know hes just kind of undersized

I hope our 2 and 3 round isn't a wr pick. Sign Holt since we have 2 young receivers already and use the 2 and 3 on DE and Safety.

Where is 6'2" 234 Jamarko Simmons from Western Michigan? He finished All-MAC with over 3000 career yards and 17 touchdowns...

A QB having a weaker arm & less accuracy needs a burner who can separate. But, Cutler doesn't need burners w. separation. He needs receivers who:
* can reliably catch a fast ball (in various positions near them)
* are quick rather than fast
* run good routes
Julian Norwood (#42){"glue for hands"} is therefore my choice for a later-round pick. I think he's a great match for Cutler & would be a complement to Hester.

List is fair, but I'm more intrigued by guys not there.

Two big receivers are M. Massaquoi and Ramses Barden. Each profile rather similarly to Brandon Marshall, a fourth round pick who was big, but deemed too slow.

As someone stated, arm strength and accuracy can compensate for lack of speed.

I also like Derrick Williams out of Penn State, a player who can also return kicks, and Brandon Tate, a player with a few injury questions.

Of the lower part of the group, Iglesias intrigues me the most.

And he should be available.

I think Robiskie is our man. He's NFL ready, versatile, and ready to be Jay Cutler's best friend.

I agree with the separation notion.Separation is only a huge factor when a QB can't place the ball in a small window.

Crabtree is not 6'3 he measured in at 6'1 at the combine. Why does he have Ramses Barden ranked 34th. Most have him listed in the top 15, nobody has him close to 34 though. Thats crazy. The fact that he doesn't know how tall Crabtree is really tells me he has not followed the off season at all. Every sports page in the country reported on his hight at the combine.

Someone is just going through the motions until the draft.

I have done my research about all of these prospects already and have a fair understanding of where they should be ranked that is why I know this list sucks and I read the article in hopes that a major newspaper like the Chicago Tribune would make sure that a published article would be accurate and Legitimate but like most times I ended up very much dissatisfied with the result.

Crabtree's size wont matter, nor will his speed. He knows how to get open, and doesn't drop the ball. I would like to see the Bears take a shot on Tate, I saw this kid play alot, before he blew out his knee he was a STUD. If he is there in maybe the 4th, i grab him up fast

Kenny Britt is your man. Broke some of l. Fitzgerald's BE records and big and tough as WR's come.
