Grading the Chicago Bears 2014 NFL Draft

<b>Round 1: Kyle Fuller, CB, Virginia Tech</b> <br></br> I have no problem with Fuller as a football player. I just felt there was more value taking a safety with the first pick. That said, CB is a position of need, and I like Fuller, who I believe will remain at corner and not get switched to safety. While a safety might have filled a more pressing immediate need for the Bears, there is no question that the Bears are long in the tooth at the position, and it appears they got a potentially very good player here. <br></br> At just under six feet, Fuller is a smart player with solid instincts and the versatility to line up in the slot or outside. He should start at the nickel until Tillman departs after this season, and has demonstrated the ability to contribute on special teams. <br></br> <b>Grade: B</b>

Chicago Bears GM Phil Emery leaves questions to be answered following pre-draft press conference
Chicago Bears general manager Phil Emery is, in a word, cryptic. Emery is an enigma; especially when it comes to the NFL Draft. And, on Thursday, he did nothing with his press conference except to insure that none of us have any clue what is going on in his head. His “briefing” lasted 45 minutes,... Read more »
