In a mock that I'm making, I'm having a very hard time figuring out where I want to go with our Chicago Bears. So many great options - in my opinion.

Cooper is the best player available, at a position of need and he is versatile.

Not always an option.

I would take Cooper.

I would not be shocked to see the Bears take Fluker however as he has the potential to be a physically dominant player. Emery loves guys who are bigger, stronger and faster.

Cooper is safer and Fluker has more upside.

Fluker. He was the top rated tackle at the beginning of the year and there has been no reason to change that. Guy is a Monster.

If a trade down is possible then I would take Warmack and hope Jones drops to the third.

Fluker and Cooper would be the only ones I'd consider. I voted Fluker.

Unfortunately, I doubt very much if he will be there at 20.

I think it's just as likely he is as he isn't.

I remember that being said about Stephen Hill too.

Hill did not start off the year as the top rated tackle and was barely noticed till the combine. Folks get a lot more excited by a 40 time than they do the number of reps. And, to be fair, many people thought he would be drafted about where he was. I was ga-ga over him but also over Jeffery so I was happy the way it turned out. Their seasons were remarkably similar.

I feel like DeCastro was a much higher rated guard than Fluker and Cooper and we passed on him at 19 last year. Taking a guard at 20, im not so sure, this is a fairly strong OL class in general, and I while I feel OL is our biggest weakness, I would rather see a tackle taking at 20 if we are going OL round 1.

Give me Minter here, guy is fast, atheletic, I like him to fit that Urlacher mold.

DeCastro may have been a little bit of an Internet creation and he never was as highly ranked as Warmack.

But there is a difference last years draft was very talented and the OG talent was solid but no one of the top 5 positions.

This year the draft is much weaker and OG is a better value at 20 then it was last year at 19.

The arguement for LB I think is that the LB talent Dow not run as deep as the OG/C talent.

In what world was Fluker the #1 rated OT this year?

Barring a trade down, off that list I'd have to go with Cooper, followed by Fluker, Minter, Rhodes and Ertz.

Aaaaannnnndddddd we're back to the "is it worth taking a guard in the 1st" discussion. Laughing

Here's a better question: is Cooper a better or worse prospect than David DeCastro was at #24 last year?

Given the Bears needs and this years draft class I think that conversation is going to continue until even AFTER the draft. Smile
