Scott Wright of NFL Draft Countdown Profiles Possible Bears Fits in Draft [AUDIO]

| November 1st, 2014

Normally we don’t talk draft around here until the month before the event itself but I’m growing weary of debating players with fans who don’t watch any of the actual football games played by the prospects. On the call, our pal Scott Wright breaks down possibilities for the Bears at safety, corner, edge rusher, linebacker, right tackle and kick return/scat back. He absolutely adores Landon Collins of Alabama (and he should). Other than Collins, a few names I think make sense at various points in the draft:

  • Duke Johnson, Miami as a dynamic playmaker
  • Derron Smith, Fresno State as the second safety on the board
  • T.J. Clemmings, Pittsburgh at offensive tackle

Hopefully you can use this podcast with Scott as something of a guide for watching the college games over the rest of this season.

    The dreaded mid season premature draft analysis. Happy happy joy joy.

  • Shady

    Is this really what it’s come to now? Talking draft on November 1st? So fucking sad.

    • Sad, but not as sad as talking about this spineless, clueless, soul-less Bears team.
      At least the draft gives us hope. This is where MB needs to return with a boob portfolio, or Irish with an Russian Alien conspiracy to hold the blog over…

      • Trac

        You must assault MB’S character in an attempt to provoke a response 85. I believe you are the man to do that. Hee hee.

        • SC Dave

          I could wax poetic on the virtues of Chris Conte at free safety. That might work.

          • johnnywad

            LOL. And Shea. Work up something good on Shea. That should bring him out of hiding.

  • Need to add “possible DC and Sp team’s fit for the Bears” to the pod list.
    Maybe a guest familiar with college coaches who might bolt to the NFL.
    As for specials, where to start?

    • DaBearsBlog

      I actually planned to do this before season started. Was request I received all summer. Why not see the players in actual games?

      • Trac

        Because we are supposed to be heavily involved in discussing the fantastic season we’re having?

        In other words, you knew we’d such as far back as last season. You sir are good. Hee hee

        • DaBearsBlog

          Um, I was the lone voice around here saying this season was about progress, not about contending for a title. Remember when everybody killed me for it?

          • Trac

            Yes I do. Dammit man!

          • DocNitty(BallsStillOrnamental)

            I remember that, but to be fair, you also said they’d get to the playoffs and hopefully get one win. They’re further behind than we ALL thought they’d be.

      • I like it. I wished you guys would go in depth more with LBs (non pass rushing – god knows we need another tweener like a hole in the head), spefically if there’s another Keuchly, Patrick Willis, Mack type prospect, or how deep the position is this year.
        I doubt Emery will go S. I just see him as going by the classic chart of pass rushers, cbs, then LB/S.

        No prospect is a sure thing, but Bama secondary prospects scare the shit out of me because they’ve had a stout front to roam free behind.

        Mark Barron, as you guys pointed, just went for a bag-o-chips and he was 7th overall.

        • DaBearsBlog

          I stayed away from linebackers on purpose for one reason: how can we sure what the scheme will be next year? If they DO make a switch to someone like Rex or Wade, the linebacker needs change drastically from the current system.

          • that would be interesting. Guys like Christian Jones and Shea McClellin could be 3-4 LBs (if they don’t switch to 3-4, IMO Shea is gone). But I have a tough time seeing them switch to a 3-4 because they just invested a bunch of money in Willie Young and Jared Allen, who both don’t fit there.

          • Some lb prospects transcend scheme tho. Like Mack, Willis, maybe even keuchly. S are also scheme specific. 3-4 requires them to do more than traditional 4-3 cover heavy

          • CanadaBear

            I’d argue what difference does scheme make with these guys? None of them are so great they are locked into anything. I could see the only 2 LB’s on this roster that make it to next year are Jones and Bostic. Maybe Sharpton if he gets back on the field soon. Otherwise, Briggs and DJ are gone for sure, no matter what. Greene and CD could easily be cut.

          • Trac

            While evra one was thinking corner or FS this year I was soo wanting Mosley for several reasons. Most important reason was, how do you pass up on the hands down best ILB in the draft when there were no close seconds? Especially when I KNEW our LB’S were not good enough. Not having the vision to replace Urlachers leadership void was a huge mistake by Emery. Mosley is gonna be in contention for defensive rookie of the year. Not saying Fuller was a bad pick by any stretch, just that Mosley would have added more value to our defense.

          • CanadaBear

            When the Kitties were in London Mosley got sent home for disciplinary reasons. He may be great but he’s certainly got some growing up to do.

          • Trac

            Wrong Mosley Canada. That is a different cj mosley. I saw that too and had to do a double take. The cj mosley I’m talking about is an ILB for the Ravens.

          • CanadaBear

            OK. i was confused (obviously).

        • Trac

          I think there are some DE’s/OLB’s the Bears will consider drafting in the first round. ILB’s are pretty deep in next year’s draft and we’d be able to pick up a solid player in the third or 4th rounds but there aren’t any kluechy’s coming out next year. Not even any Mosley’s.

  • Trac

    Why waste time on Kyle Fuller? Linebackers, linebackers, linebackers.

  • TheBigCheesy

    The @DraftCountdown podcast is NOT a response to Bears season. Just hoping more people will base their draft opinions on games not workouts.

    -@DaBearsBlog:disqus

    Lol. This disclaimer is a response to the Bears season, however. You wouldn’t have to make it if they weren’t currently in the dumps…

    • DaBearsBlog

      What sense does that make? I had to schedule with Scott three weeks ago. Sorry to say but whether the Bears are good or not has literally no effect on how much content I produce or really what that content is.

      • Trac

        I don’t think that’s what the cheese was saying Jeff. I think he was saying you had to put a disclaimer on it or you would be accused of that because we are in fact horrible.

        • DaBearsBlog

          Well I made it because I notoriously don’t talk draft until the week of it. My bigger issue is just trying to help change the draft conversation to be more game-centric.

        • TheBigCheesy

          Yeah…I was just commenting on the fact that: if you ran this column and the Bears were 5-3, they’d just assume you were doing it to fill space during the bye week (which you are) and you’d have no need for your disclaimer. Instead because the Bears are 3-5, you understand that some people might interpret early draft talk as you waving the white flag.

          That in itself is a comment on the Bears Season, I’d argue

  • Donnnnn’t Caaaaarrrrrre!

    http://www.suntimes.com/sports/football/bears/30759748-606/marquess-wilsons-speedy-bursts-should-only-help-bears.html#.VFT4BudQGUc

    Are we really writing articles about Marquess Wilson now? Marshall and Jeffery are about 25 catches each off of last years pace and we’re talking about Marquess?

    The issue to this season is not getting the ball to Marshall and Jeffery appropriately. That’s on Trestman and it partially due to injury. Get the fucking ball to Marshall and Jeffery more in common sense ways and keep going to Forte and Bennett and you fucking win. It’s as simple as that. All this other talk is just fucking talk.

    Playcalling has fucking sucked.

    Other than that, have a great day boys,

  • Trac

    Hi MB.

  • Trac

    “His defense rested its case several weeks ago, Tahmooressi’s release came only after a strong diplomatic push from former Gov. Bill Richardson of New Mexico and Reps. Ed Royce (R-CA) and Matt Salmon (R-AZ). Speaking by phone on his way to board a plane with Tahmooressi, Richardson said the trio, along with talk show host Montel Williams, met with Mexico’s Attorney General and Ambassador to the US, advocating for his liberation. ”

    HIP HIP HOORAY!!!! Welcome home Marine.

    • Donnnnn’t Caaaaarrrrrre!

      lol, what was Montel Williams doing there?

      • Trac

        Running for congress?

    • Bears-4-Ever

      Just another perfect example of how our current Administration have no testicles. Our government and the U.S. in general are basically laughed at by our enemies and ignored or brushed off by our so called allies. If that Marine was being held during a Eisenhower, JFK, or Reagan administration that kid would have been home months ago. If our government had any balls at all, after hearing the circumstances of how it all went down, the President should have been on the phone with the president of Mexico and basically told him, you have 48 hours to release my Marine, or we’re coming to get him. Period. I’m so sick of the Pussies that are currently “running” our country.

      • Trac

        Quite honestly, I’m just happy he’s free.

        • Bears-4-Ever

          Yeah me too, I’m very glad it’s finally happened. I’m just pissed off it took this long and we had to get help from Montel Williams…really…just goes to show you the clout the U.S. has…absolutely laughable.

          Also, the kid is probably more traumatized now then before he went in to that Mexican hell-hole. Months of mental & emotional torture, wondering if he’d ever get out or ever see his family again…what did that have to happen for? Really…Explain it to me Mr. President…your are a farce Sir. The end or your term cannot come soon enough.

      • Doc Hamstring

        The guy is a FORMER Marine. So that makes him a civilian, not an active-duty member of the military. A private citizen. Arrested and charged in Mexico for having a shit-ton of weapons and ammunition–illegal in Mexico.

        You really think the President should be intervening in the arrests and detention of private citizens?

        • Bears-4-Ever

          He’s a U.S. Citizen. Held on grounds, that once came to light it was a misunderstanding and a bunch of crap. Once that was uncovered our Govt., President, Ambassador, whoever needs to take action and stop sitting on their hands. Yes, I expect our government to protect our citizens abroad from injustice. Damn right. Oh and Once a Marine Always a Marine. Unless you think he was really trying to sell weapons, etc. Which I believe was already debunked.

          • Doc Hamstring

            You said other presidents–then gave a couple examples of Republicans, as well as JFK–would have gotten “that Marine…home months ago”.

            Again, IF he was an active duty Marine, that would be a completely different case from a guy who has mustered out and isn’t even in the Reserves. A guy’s status as a former member of the military does not and should not give him preferential treatment compared to other U.S. citizens. And I say that as a former member of the military myself.

            As far as how you “expect our government to protect our citizens abroad from injustice,” do you know how many US citizens are currently held or imprisoned by foreign governments? I don’t. But a casual search turned up dozens.

            Including this guy: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jonathan_Idema

            Former Army. Imprisoned in Afghanistan. George W. Bush didn’t get him free. Guess George’s administration didn’t have any balls at all, even though we had tens of thousands of troops stationed in the country. I wonder if George W. Bush gave Hamid Karzai a call with a 48-hour ultimatum. No? Jeez, what a pussy.

          • Trac

            I hardly see that as a good example Doc. A) He was a covert operative or B) He was operating outside the military in an un-sanctioned activity. Either way, the politics of his actions will never allow for outside intervention that has any hope of prevailing based on the facts you posted. Without getting political in the discharged marines situation, in my opinion, it was shameful that our government didn’t try to do more to get him released. I’ll leave it at that.

  • Anybody looking to check out players should frequent http://www.draftbreakdown.com. Awesome resource. Can watch a whole game on any draft player you want in 10 minutes or less.

  • Do you mean Duke Johnson of Miami? Not Duke Collins?

    • DaBearsBlog

      I don’t even know who the hell Duke Collins is. Apparently he was a character on Nip/Tuck.

      • couldn’t agree more about needing a general offensive weapon like that though.

  • Barb UMihai Mar

    I’ve got one for 2016 Draft. Kendall Fuller.

    • Trac

      I used to have a friend in high school that was so smart he no common sense. You remind me of him. Lol.

      • Barb UMihai Mar

        I too was smoking weed every day of high school.

        • Trac

          Yes, that must be it.

  • Barb UMihai Mar

    The patriots are 3 points under dogs at home against the Broncos. That’s utterly insane.
    It also shows you how little people that follow NFL understand the sport. I would have bet on The Patriots even at -3.

    • Barb UMihai Mar

      Mannnn….

  • BerwynBomber

    Two more reasons to be grateful for the McCaskeys. Jerry Jones tries to guilt Romo into playing even though he has two fractures in this vertebrae. Dan Snyder decides RG3 is playing even though Washington has won two games in a row under McCoy.

    • Bears-4-Ever

      Jerry Jones is not a great football “mind” However, as an owner, he’s not afraid of Firing Someone who doesn’t show immediate results and is also not afraid to spend money in trying to build a winning franchise. I don’t like Jerry Jones, for the pure fact that he butts his nose into matters that he as an owner shouldn’t get involved, however he does take action when the chips are down. That’s a lot more than what the McCaskeys have done in over 15-20 years. Inaction seems to be their specialty. Would Jerry Jones be a good owner for the Bears? I don’t think so but I’d rather have action than inaction.

      • CanadaBear

        Depends if the action is more than just a moronic over-reaction. A Jerry specialty.

      • guest

        Jones has two superbowl rings, the McCaskeys have none.

  • Shady

    No gameday thread?

    • BerwynBomber

      Huh? What results have Garrett shown since he’s been there? Jones hasn’t won a damn thing since Johnson left and the only coaches that can work for him are yes men.

      • CanadaBear

        Not to put too fine of a point on it BB but the Cowgirls did win it all with Switzer. Other than that, 100% agree with ya.

        • BerwynBomber

          Decent point. Forgot about that, although one could argue those were all Johnson’s guys still.

          • CanadaBear

            No kidding. I always figured that team had so much talent even a completely not interested Barry Switzer won it all.

        • Trac

          Don’t forget the Hershell Walker trade. That was 100 percent Jimmy Johnsons idea. Can’t blame the Vikings either because several teams offered similar deals that the Vikings did. Other than that, yes Jimmy Johnson was a tool.

      • Bears-4-Ever

        No Jerry Jones is a nut job…he is the Yin where the McCaskeys are the Yang. Extreme action vs. none. I’d like to see a better ownership team that admits there is a problem and tries to fix it…

  • BerwynBomber

    Do we get DC/Minn here in Chicago? i’m guessing that’s the case.

    http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/writer/jason-la-canfora/24779827/with-bears-leadership-in-question-marc-trestmans-job-security-is-tenuous

    The Bears are in a state of crisis, according to several sources with knowledge of the locker room, with a leadership void further fueling their downward spiral. Players are tuning coach Marc Trestman out, according to numerous sources, there has been increased in-fighting in recent weeks and the team’s dedication has been called in to question at times by players and coaches alike, sources said.

    Numerous sources pointed to lack of leadership and accountability as key factors in the team’s awful first half after expectations of a possible Super Bowl, and if anything the situation has gotten worse in recent weeks. After a humiliating defeat at New England last week, in which the Bears trailed 38-7 at halftime, several member of the organization feared for Trestman’s job, sources said, and later in the week ownership ended up putting out a vote of confidence for Tretsman and general manager Phil Emery. The GM chose Trestman over Bruce Arians, who has become a perennial Coach of the Year candidate in Arizona.

    The construction of the team has also come under criticism, particularly after signing embattled quarterback Jay Cutler to an $18 million-a-season extension after last season, and Cutler’s ability to lead and galvanize a team has continued to come under question inside the Bears locker room. Longtime leaders like Brian Urlacher are gone, and veterans like Lance Briggs and Charles Tillman have been hurt almost all season, mitigating their ability to assuage the situation.

    Trestman, a bright offensive mind who was hired away from Montreal of the Canadian Football League, has resonated with players more like a coordinator than a head coach, sources said, and that dynamic coupled with the issues in the locker room has created a toxic environment. At 3-5 the Bears face an uphill climb to reach the playoffs and tensions could remain high there for the duration of the season.

    • Trac

      That’s an amazing post Shady. You should have bee a journalist. He he.

    • CanadaBear

      I guess we aren’t crazy. They really are that fucked up.

    • Doc Hamstring

      “Trestman, a bright offensive mind who was hired away from Montreal of the Canadian Football League, has resonated with players more like a coordinator than a head coach, sources said”

      So, I wonder how a person “resonates” with players “more like a coordinator than a head coach”?

      Sounds like a lame shot to me.

      • Trac

        It’s a shot at his leadership abilities doc.

        • BillW

          It’s good that the press is focusing on what seems to be the underlying problem – lack of leadership.

          I read a Lombardi quote on PFT that said essentially a lot of people can do x’s and o’s but it takes something special to get inside a player and motivate them.

          Very true in business I know. Without a motivating leader all people do is their job – and not everyone does that as good as they could.

    • BillW

      But trestman will be given another chance next year despite total lack of evidence he has what it takes to be a successful head coach.

      Still without a “Joe Madden” out there he might as well stay as the roster gradually gets rebuilt.

  • Trac

    Is this thing on?

    Echo…echo…echo…

  • Jack Lacan

    Note to Jeff — Rug is excellent…

  • Trac

    Another win for the Cardinals over the cowgirls. Nobody seems to realize they are taking down winning teams week after week. I wonder if they’d ever consider moving back to Chicago?

  • BerwynBomber

    Vikes move to 4-5.

    • Trac

      Yup. We are in the cellar all by our lonesome.

  • BerwynBomber

    Bullshit PI call on Browner.

    Funny, the NBA allows for more pushing and shoving for a contested rebound than the NFL does for a contested pass.

    • BillW

      That’s because pushing and shoving interferes with catching the pass. Hence the term “pass interference”

      • BerwynBomber

        Then let me say “contact” and leave it at that.

        • BillW

          Agreed.

  • Trac
    • BillW

      I read the link too fast. I thought it said “their chest”

  • Trac

    Anyone else see what Andy Reid is doing with a great running back, a game manager QB and a questionable to weak roster? Yup, 5-3.

    • BillW

      The evidence against Mr. Trestman mounts each week.

      God I hate to think this but had Emery forced Lovie to take Trestman as OC then marinelli would have stayed. With this very same roster I’m sure we’d be in the playoff picture instead of last place.

      • SC Dave

        Interesting notion. Might have actually worked.

      • Shady

        You can’t FORCE a coach to hire a coordinator. Nevermind the fact Trestman wasn’t leaving the CFL for another coordinator position in the NFL. He wanted to be a HC all the way.

  • BillW

    If the Bears pull it together and compete strongly against gb then the onus is on Trestman to do that every week.

    I don’t believe he has it in him. And I am getting annoying again aren’t I?

    It would seem most posters now see what I saw at the end of last year. So there is no point in morphing back into “Belinda”. . Just had to get it out of my system after seeing the likely coach of the year win again. Whom either Emery turned away or who turned away from the Bears first.

    I’m done. . I promise.

  • wreckinball

    NE defense playing pretty good

    • Trac

      According to Jeff the Pats defense sucks.

      • wreckinball

        I thought so too but playing tough against PM

        • SC Dave

          I have only watched parts of the second half, but if they have been able to interfere the way they did on the 4th and goal with 11:23 or so left, no wonder they look good. It’s like Seattle last season, if you get to violate the rules all day it helps a lot.

          • BerwynBomber

            Mutual hand-fighting. Easy non-call.

          • Barb UMihai Mar

            Sure… they aren’t good… they’re just cheating.

            Please Bears D… cheat the fuck out. I implore you.

    • Barb UMihai Mar

      Fucking LOL. Just fucking LOL.

  • Trac

    Bellacheat putting on a clinic against the Broncos.

    • wreckinball

      He’s annoying but absolutely best coach in the league

      • BerwynBomber

        I think he’s the best coach ever but that is excluding guys like Lombardi, Halas and P. Brown who were well before my time. But I’d probably take the ‘chick over Shula, Noll, Walsh and Gibbs.

        • wreckinball

          Agree throw Parcels in there too

    • BillW

      I miss running the football. Pass pass passpasspass..

      Bizarre. Did not see this coming.

      • Barb UMihai Mar

        Neither did Vegas.

        PS: I lost my money on fucking 49ers, but I’m still happy I went Final Result 1 on the Pats. It was 2.55.

  • wreckinball

    NE just gets it done. Amazed they r doing this

  • wreckinball

    LaFell and Julian Edelman and it works go figure

  • Trac

    The 49er s had another bearesk game against the Rams. With the cowboys, seahawks, packers all ahead of us in the wild card race it will be interesting to see who chokes from here on out. My money is on the Cowboys.

    • BerwynBomber

      I’m not sold on the Cheese either. They seem like a one-man band with Rodgers. That rush D of theirs is as horrid as ours was last year. Might even be worse statistically.

      Seattle, I’m thinking, will right the ship and may even challenge AZ before all is said and done.

  • Trac

    Good nite MB. Don’t let the bed bugs bite. Mmmkay.

  • Barb UMihai Mar

    Wait a second… so NE Defense isn’t just a bunch of glorified bums ? Weren’t these guys totally awful against the run, the pass and in between ?

    2 turnovers, 3 of 11 on 3rd down, 0 of 4 on 4th down, under 50 yards running, 21 points allowed and a lot of pass yards in garbage time. Against the taunted Denver Offense !? Shiiiiiiiiiiit.

    PS: It’s a beautiful thing to see them play. They use a ton of looks, coverages, personnel, schemes, blitzes. Everything is based on meritocracy, production and Special Teams usefulness.
    That rookie Malcom Butler was a beast in preseason. Shut down corner stuff. They kept him and he started 2 weeks in a row now before the ‘starter’ Dennard. Before the season I was writing here that if I were Emery I’d trade a 3rd round draft pick in 2013 for 3 UFA rookies of the Patriots. 2 of those 2 were Butler and Gray and the other one was a LB that ended up starting for them with all their LBs injured at some point.

    • Trac

      Let me see your hands barb. Lol.

      • Barb UMihai Mar

        I’d rather wank my dick that sucking some dick…like thinking they’re a bunch of bums in the days before these dudes kept the best 2 offenses in 2013 at 7 points the first half and a lot of garbage yards after the blowout was cooked in blood. .

    • Trac

      Ok smarty pants. I just won’t reply to any of your posts again. Hahaha

      • Barb UMihai Mar

        I was just trying to make you enjoy their Defense. So, I’m a good guy, see ?

  • johnnywad

    Well it appears the Bears are roughly as good as the Broncos. Right? So we’re all set then.

    • BerwynBomber

      Well I guess it’s minor consolation — emphasize “minor” — that the Fish and Pats are looking to be better than initially expected.

    Congrats to Nik Wallenda. Two records set. The city looked great on camera. While he has nerves of steel it seemed at the end of the first walk he was actually nervous. Did it I think in about half the original estimate. It looked real steep at the end and he just wanted to get it over. Planned to take a picture of himself but decided just to keep going. . 19 degree incline they said vs the 15 planned. . Equivalent of walking a ramp up 8 stories. On a wire the width of a penny.

    This in reference to Jeff tweet on the NFL being boring this year.: it’s because we thought the Bears were contenders and they turned out not to be.

    My favorite years in football are always when I expect the Bears to contend and they do. Followed by not expecting and they do. Followed by knowing they would be bad and they are.

    I hate football any year they underachieve. I just don’t care what Tom Brady or Peyton Manning do. . My only possible interest now is seeing the Packers fail.

    The NFL is just a giant surprise every year. We all think we know, but we never do. Bills, Dolphin, Niners, Cardinals, Lions, Bears, Cowboys and on and on and on. All surprises. You just don’t know until it happens.

    Will R-berger eventually get in the HoF? Wouldn’t shock me but he would have to wait a # of years before getting the nod.

    • Think he would need another sb to even get a sniff. In this era of inflated passing stats, need to either win a few sbs or go off statistically like brees

      • BerwynBomber

        Somewhat agree. But his career PR is roughly 95, which is Jay’s this year and the highest of Jay’s career by seven or eight points; hence, not too shabby a career PR. But yeah, R-berger has nowhere near the gaudy stats of Peyton/Brady/Rogers/Brees, but then again, he seems like one of those dudes about whom others might say “his stats don’t tell the whole story in regard to his importance/effectiveness.”

    Steelers and Patriots somehow get it done even with subs maybe the Bears should take notes

    I mean Edelman and LaFell

  • wreckinball

    Holy crap is that zebra work for the Steelers

    The AFC has 5 teams that are 5-3 or better in the wild card race. 11-5 may not be good enough for a playoff spot.
