Bears Second Round Selection: Stephen Paea

105197382_crop_340x234.jpg
The Bears have mid their second selection and they are developing a theme: toughness.
Positives: Stephen Paea is an absolute beast in the middle, capable of disrupting any interior offensive lineman and while he has not wrecked quarterbacks, he'll keep blockers off our middle linebackers.  Strength?  You want strength?  Click here and see strength.  What the Bears just drafted is Olin Kreutz on the other side of the ball.  (Add to this the rumor that the Bears were going to take him in round one if Carimi were off the board and it's clear Jerry is having a solid two nights.)
Negatives: He's dealt with some minor injuries to his knees along the way (Bears are not concerned) and that's never good.  He also is often criticized for not being an ideal height for his position.
Overall: I would have preferred the Bears stay with the offensive line here but it's good to see Jerry pursue a pick - move forward in the draft and pursue the player the organization wants.  I also like any players from New Zealand with a rugby background.

  • Stephen (Pizza) Paea welcome to Chicago!

    Slim Shady!

  • There goes Cullen Jenkins. Damn it.

  • We are getting a wideout in the FA.

    We are also going to get a guard in FA.

    There is a very slim chance we get a starting guard or corner with these last few picks.

    Randall Cobb-WR Kentucky? Anyone. His size and scouting report sound a lot like someone who would fit well into Martz's offense.

    I am positive we get some rinky dink corner with the next pick.

    We need depth at it and I don't think Bowman or Jennings are any good.

  • In reply to Bears85Sweetness23:

    I thought Jennings had a solid year in the nickel.

  • In reply to JeffHughes:

    Memories of burnt toast towards the end.

  • In reply to Bears85Sweetness23:

    Yeah I'm guessing corner or more likely a safety that they will convert to a corner considering how many quality guys are out there.

  • In reply to Bears85Sweetness23:

    I smell a JA Linebacker/Special Teamer coming in the 3rd...

  • In reply to Bears85Sweetness23:

    Me and murph have been fucking around on the last thread for an hour! Didn't know where you guys were

  • In reply to Bears85Sweetness23:

    Bowman has talent, dont know what's wrong with him

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    Lovie's pooch house, beside Dez Clarke and Shabba.

  • In reply to Bears85Sweetness23:

    It's time to draft big Mr. Moffitt.

  • In reply to TheFifth:

    Gone, to Seattle... but we have another dt!!!!

  • In reply to TheFifth:

    Let's pick up Cannon now that Moffitt's gone.

  • In reply to MichBearFan:

    don't know man, he has lymphoma... kinda crazy gamble

  • In reply to MichBearFan:

    His 40 time was horseshit, but I thought I read somewhere his cone drill was the best of the guards. I'm a little buzzed, so I could be wrong. I've seen him pancake linebackers and DB's 20-30 yards down field, so he can't be too slow. He could pull and trap and seal an edge in college that reminded me of the good old days of Bortz and Thayer. Get that SOB, and if he sucks in the pros, you guys and gal can give me shit forever.

  • In reply to MichBearFan:

    Steltz's cousin?

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    Let's hope not. Not my favorite pick but the first two were very good.

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    Good size though, for a safety, for us. Don't know much about him. Kinda wish we'd gone OL there again.

  • In reply to bnjrmyn:

    don't know Ben, dude's almost 6'3" and can't even break 2 bills? 199 on the program means 190. Hope he doesn't break when tackling.

  • In reply to bnjrmyn:

    Green bay ditches Kuhn and Brandon Jackson ? Goes with grant, Starks and green?

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    This is racist to say but I'm white so I can say it. Unless this is 1982 I don't want white defensive backs.

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    Steltz 2.0

    Shoutout to Johnny.

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    Don't know about that safety pick

  • In reply to MB30SD:

    new thread

  • In reply to hollywood1:

    Is this a coming out party? Okay, I want a large black man at WR, 6'4, 230 lbs, fast, has domestic issues.

  • In reply to Bears85Sweetness23:

    Moffit's still around isn't he. I'm going to keep bringing him up praying that the Bears will take him in the 3rd. If he lasts that long.

  • In reply to jbenton:

    I would be happy if we did that now.

    3 round value on a second round guard?

    Sweet.

  • In reply to jbenton:

    Packers got Cobb.. I thought they didn't need another wideout..

    and that must mean one of theirs is a FA.
