Default What to do with Chicago's pick?

Right now we would have I believe the 9th pick if the season ended today.

Do we take a QB? Trade down to 15-20 and get an extra high pick? Or just go for a D-lineman which I think we still need.

I know it is early, but the Bears have a game with the Packers and the Vikings, though both in Chicago, as well as games against St.Louis, and @Baltimore and @Detroit to end the season...

So I feel they will end up 6-10, 7-9 at the best, which would give us a top 12 pick. I bet Seattle is wishing they asked for the Bear pick now.

Just some more things to ponder.

I would go QB because I don't think we can win anything with Orton.

QB NT is my top two choices. I'm not sure what McD will do at this point.

I meant playoff games and division titles. 10-6 is the max for Orton

Some defense up the middle. Either Cody, McClain, or Spikes.

I say we take Lucker @ QB.. if not QB we need to go DT or DE or C if he's rated high enough to take in the 1st round.

Why would you say that we are incapable of winning playoff games with Orton? Think about it. He's already beaten Cincy, New England, Dallas and San Diego. That's four teams that are currently leading their respective divisions and will make the playoffs barring anything crazy happening in the next month.

I never care what position they go for. IMO as long as your draft picks become good starting NFL players you can build a winner.

IMO Broncos don't have glaring holes. They just need more playmakers regardless of position.

If I had to say I would say

1-OG- Some interior beast who can dominate big player
2-RB- IMO we could still take one maybe 4th -6th round etc
3-DE-Mcbean and Peterson steady, but we could use a playmaker
4-DT- Fields needs help at NT
5-MLB/SSL maybe some youth to get ready, I doubt Haggan/Davis long term solution.

IMO anytime the team has a chance to draft a QB they think is top line NFL talent you should do so. You can always develop more then one QB, then trade one etc. I don't anticipate Simms being back, but Brandstater prob will be. That mean either a VET bkup or a new rookie IMO will be obtained.

OL, DL or ILB.

We need depth and future starters at all three places.

i think the problem for this team is the offense. The defense looks great when the offense is not going three and out half the time

No and you rarely see OGs taken as high as the first. This year there is a guy out of Idaho is slotted to go in the first but in the late first. I dont agree with how guards are undervalued but at the same time its a shame to overpay or reach for one.
