Bears 2014 Rookie Class Review

The Bears have 14 rookies on their roster right now. 12 of which have been on the roster for extended periods of time and have played. I know that it is early to look at the returns on a draft class, but this class has shown enough that I think it can be discussed. After so many drafts that we have preached patience, and wait 3 years, only to not have them pan out, so let’s look at a draft that appears to b ...

Blackhawks trade up to pick Nick Schmaltz at No. 20

The NHL draft took place Friday night and for the Chicago Blackhawks Friday was already a "garden work" kind of day. The Hawks took care of business Friday morning by inking goaltender Antti Raanta, forwards Ben Smith and Jeremy Morin to two-year extension deals just hours before the 2014 NHL draft took place. The Blackhawks originally had the 27th pick in the draft, but according to multiple Chicago Blackh ...

Chicago Cubs draft Kyle Schwarber

Despite a need for a pitching, the Chicago Cubs decided to go another route and draft Indiana C/OF Kyle Schwarber with the fourth overall pick in the 2014 MLB draft. After seeing Brady Aiken and Carlos Rodon get picked before the Cubs were up, they decided to save some money for the next few rounds and draft under slot. In 2014, Schwarber hit .348 with 13 home runs and 45 RBIs in 57 games. The Cubs love pow ...

Bears Mock Draft One Week Out

[14] S Calvin Pryor [Louisville] 5'11" 207lbs. [4.58 40, 18 reps, 34.5 vertical, 9'8" broad]   Phil Emery in his first 2 drafts has routinely addressed the Bears biggest need with his 1st round pick. With Chris Conte and Ryan Mundy starting right now, and that is if Conte can come back from a shoulder operation in time, I do not see how you cannot argue that S is the Bears biggest need.   The Bears have tal ...

2014 Chicago Bears Mock Off Season

With Free Agency just over five days away, each fan base dreams of what their team(s) will accomplish this off season. The salary cap jumped up exactly $10 million from a year ago, with that comes more cash to spend. While the Chicago Bears appear to be strapped for space, there are many ways the team can create extra space. As of right now, the team currently projected to have right around $9.36 million to ...

What should the Bears do at Defensive End?

The problem I keep coming back to with this off-season is that the Bears need a DE. Even if Peppers is restructured and Wootton is re-signed, the Bears need a starting calibre DE. The failure of the McClellin pick has left them with very little pass rush in the cupboard.   This is where the problem begins as this offseason does not appear to have a DE group, in free agency or the draft, that excites me at a ...

Cubs Select Kris Bryant 2nd Overall in the MLB Draft

Draft day  is a big day for Cubs fans and many thought Mark Appel or Jonathan Gray would be the guy they would select with the 2nd overall pick. Instead  it was Kris Bryant, a third baseman from the University of San Diego. Bryant, who also can play the outfield, is widely regarded as the top position player in the draft and by some the top player in all of the draft. He hit 31 home runs in 228 AB's last ye ...

Who Should the Cubs Select No. 2 Overall in the MLB Draft?

Gray, Appel. Gray, Appel. Gray, Appel. Bryant. Who will it be? The MLB Draft will take place on June 6, and it is one that Cubs fans will be paying attention to more than ever. The Astros have the No. 1 pick, and it is very unclear as to who they will choose as well, as there is no clear standout among the bunch. Three names drawing the most attention are Mark Appel, a starting pitcher from Stanford, Jonath ...

Bulls Draft Board 2012

Aside from a last minute shakeup, it's looking like the Bulls aren't going to move down in the draft. Houston was looking to include us in many trades as a third partner. After a pair of trades with Minnesota and then Milwaukee,  the Rockets might be where they want to wind up, as far as the draft is concerned. Sacramento is also looking to move some parts. The Lakers, Clippers, and Trailblazers are openly ...
