The Bears have had their share of misses on finding a good short-yardage back, but have yet to test the waters with drafting one.  Hill would be that perfect candidate.  He’s slated to go earlier than the other players on this list, so the Bears would have to make a much bigger commitment to the position by drafting Hill.  But at 6-0, 233 pounds he’s the bruiser and the powerful downhill runner that they need.  Hill can benefit from learning behind Forte and needs to develop his pass-catching abilities.  The biggest hangup the Bears may have here is the off-the-field problems Hill has had in the past.  Hopefully those are well behind him and do not carry any additional risk.
