What To Expect From The Bears During The NFL Draft

With the Lockout top-of-mind, it's difficult to look past the negativity of the Billionaires vs. Millionaires War. For Jerry Angelo and Lovie Smith, they still have to plan as if there will be a season and to look towards the future. With the draft right around the corner, everyone is wondering what they have planned. 
From ChicagoBears.com, here are 4 things to expect from the Bears during the draft: 
1. They want to draft a quarterback they can develop behind Jay Cutler and Caleb Hanie. IMHO: Personally I think that should be the least of their concerns.  
2. Angelo likes the crop of receivers but he doesn't think that any will be around. IMHO: It would be nice but I'd rather see either an OL, DL, CB before a WR. Regardless, the Bears will probably take the best player available out of these 4 positions. 
3. They will improve their offensive line with big prospects. IMHO: Mike Tice wants a huge line and Angelo will give that to him. 
4. With the current 3-4 trend, there will be less competition for DL. IMHO: Good news for the Bears as they may be able to get a couple mid-round steals.
