The 32nd pick for Claypool is not good value. Not sure why that makes some of you some angry. Hopefully he plays much better next year. But if you can't find a better player at pick 32 than Claypool you are not a good GM.
It's weird how for some people, to say anything critical of someone is to admit they're terrible or something.
Most of us can honestly say, "Yeah, this person screwed up this thing" without automatically jumping to them being terrible at their job.
As far as Poles, we just don't know yet. But make no mistake, the Claypool stuff is in the "con" category right now. I'm also discouraged that the Bears didn't acquire anyone (other than probably Brisker) last offseason who we can look at now and say, "Man we've really got ourselves a major value here that's really going to work out." If this was supposed to be a development year, where's the development?
That said, I'm content to continue to sit back, wait and watch. I see good, and I see bad. But there's nothing wrong about being honest about a move looking like shit. And the Claypool move looks like shit.
