Bears Day 3 Preview
The Bears head into Day 3 of the NFL draft with 2 more needs filled with 2 probable starters in first rounder OT Gabe Carimi and second rounder DT Stephen Paea. They also added another safety to the mix in the third round by selecting Cal’s Chris Conte with the 93rd pick overall.
The Bears are left with only two picks left in Rounds 4-7, very uncharacteristic for a Jerry Angelo led draft. Here’s a reset for what they still have:
5th rounder (#160 overall)
6th rounder (#195 overall)
Don’t forget that they already spent their fourth round pick – #127 – to trade up in the second round. You might say it was a 2-for-1 deal since they used that same pick in a trade attempt with the Ravens that the Bears botched.
Don’t be surprised to see Jerry try to start horse trading a bit to stockpile draft picks. If you believe what Jerry Angelo tells you, the Bears will look to add a quarterback in the late rounds. I’m not sure they have that luxury with only two picks left and a few holes to fill.
Where should they spend their precious few remaining picks? You know the drill; share your thoughts in the Comments below.
