I dunno. This seems like a wasted pick.

So no CB in this class?

I like King. I think he contributes more now than Cohen does but I do see your point. Where do you think we go 5th round?

I don't know. I've been pretty wrong so far this weekend.

I think that's part of it. Eddie Jackson is a punt guy, so they've added one guy who can help in each return facet today.

Still think the Bears need a DL more than a CB. They depend to much on Goldman and Hicks. When Goldman was out the run defense was a joke. You never have enough lineman and you won't get any August.

I think Pace sees this guy and sees Sproles. If that's what we get then it's a home run. The explosiveness is legit and IF we can use it properly it's an asset IMO. Says a lot about Langford IMO. I see this as the 2-minute and obvious passing situation back which is something we were seriously lacking last year. KR too.

All of that said - the size scares me and he's obviously going to be a limited scope gadget play type of player. He fits needs but not as many as I'd have expected from a guy in the 4th.

Mitch Trubisky is an accurate thrower that allows for maximum YAC yards.

Cohen to me is a guy who can create with a good throw out of the backfield and who can be a weapon on 3rd down in the screen game etc.

I understand the idea, can a guy this small hold up?

179 lb at 5'6" is a pretty rocked up guy to be honest. Sproles was 5'6" 187 lb at his combine and hasn't had a ton of durability issues.

You guys are so stuck in the past. It's sad. This is a forward thinking pick to evolve our offense. I really like this pick. I heard before the draft we liked Cohen. I mean, look at the tape... the kid is smooth, has a powerful lower body and catches the ball well.

I fully expected lazy comparisons to Garrett Wolfe. Some Bears fans are just so stuck in 2006.

I am a North Carolina A&T Alumni and I couldnt be happier for this kid!!!!!

As a Bears fan Im skeptical. Could work in that Sproles role, forgot Pace was with the Saints when they got him.
