1. A safety that can cover will likely be one of the first two picks
While he refused to throw any names out there, it certainly seems like Angelo will be using either his third or fourth rounder on a free safety prospect, so be on the lookout for names like Myron Lewis of Vanderbilt or Major Wright of Florida.
2. Angelo knows exactly who he is targeting in Rounds 3, 4 and 5
As for the third of those three selections, a defensive lineman might be a good guess because Angelo lauded this draft for being particularly deep at both the end and tackle positions, with maybe nine going in Round 1.
3. Don't expect the Bears to trade up or trade down at any point
Angelo also went out of his way to say he wouldn't be borrowing from tomorrow to help pay for today, meaning he's not going to trade away any picks in next year's draft unless a team approaches him with a Godfather-like offer he simply can't refuse.
4. Olsen isn't going anywhere and will be a big part of the offense
Any rumors still lingering about the Bears trading Olsen to the Patriots for one of their three selections in the second round can be ignored – Angelo would be lucky to get a fourth rounder for him.
5. Expect some changes in front office personnel after the draft
With regard to potentially hiring ex-Seahawks president Tim Ruskell, who worked with Angelo for years in Tampa Bay, Angelo neither confirmed nor denied that Ruskell may or may not be a part of the team's future in the front office.
