If Fields turns out to be a bona fide franchise QB for the next 15 years with the Bears, no one would care if they gave 3 1sts, 3 2nds to make that happen.
If he is a legit star at QB, throw that trade value chart shit right out the window.
Vildor may actually be better in the nickel and compete with Shelley there. Truant may come back to the form he used to have, but you never know. Graham has a good path at least to start. I hope he does- he seems like a hard worker and a good guy.
You’re not wrong in the sense that he’ll be competing against guys with NFL experience. But don’t look at it through the prism of a 6th round pick. Some people had him going3rd-4th range. If he hadn’t opted out and had played like he always has, I think he’d be a 2nd round pick. Look at some...
Actually he reminds me of Fuller. Fuller is an inch or so taller, but other measurables are very similar. What really stood out to me about Graham are his instincts, his ability to always seem to be in an ideal position despite blazing speed. Just like Fuller. I think he will win the camp...
Fisher tore his Achilles in I think the AFC championship game. What is the timeline for that injury? I know it differs depending on the person, but what good would it do to sign him if he’s not going to be ready until around December?
Agreed, but he also quit when he played like shit in camp and left when the pressure got high. I guarantee you scouting departments were all over that in their evaluation of him.
I’m thrilled he is not on this team.
The Bears’ identity has traditionally been toughness and nastiness on both sides of the ball. Something they haven’t been on the offensive side for years now. This draft sent a message that’s going to change.
Being a Georgia guy, they have been the 2 top guys for years. Both are from north of ATL. Like all the way to high school comparisons. Lawrence had sort of a “cleaner” college path. Kirby Smart made the genius move to start Fromm over Fields and he transferred to OSU.
Ive been saying it for...
I suspect Pace will be looking at people getting cut and on the FA market, especially at LT and CB. And they still need to pay this draft class.
Some contracts will have to be unloaded. Hicks? Leno? Graham? ARob trade?
Tough. That’s the word that accurately describes all these picks. Fields was a home run, and he is a gamer with big game experience who plays hurt and is known as a leader. He’s a football player.
Now Pace actually did something I didn’t think he’d do. Protect the guy who you want to be...
