Eric Berry (Tennessee) or Earl Thomas (Texas). He will compete with Bears 2009 sixth-round pick Al Afalava for the starting free safety job, and I have to believe he has the upper hand in that battle.
JC's Take: Calling him the Tim Tebow of Florida's defense seems a bit irresponsible, but the fact that Wright is known as a vocal leader – both on and off the field – has to be encouraging for a team lacking an alpha dog at safety.Julius Peppers this year.
JC's Take: Israel Idonije has never been a starter and Mark Anderson disappointed greatly the one time he was a starter, meaning Wootton could be atop the depth chart opposite Peppers as early as 2011.
JC's Take: GM Jerry Angelo changed his profile for the corner position ahead of this draft, only targeting prospects 5-11 and taller, which does not bode well for one of last April's fourth rounders, the 5-9 D.J. Moore.Jay Cutler comfortably placed as the Bears' starter for the foreseeable future, LeFevour will be a pet project for new offensive coordinator Mike Martz. Martz is known to be a quarterback whiz, and under his tutelage, LeFevour could develop into a quality NFL starter.
JC's Take: No team ever got worse by adding another quality signal caller, and while the Bears are married to Cutler through 2014, perhaps LeFevour can hone his skills and be a valuable commodity down the road.
JC's Take: It's perplexing that the Bears didn't address the guard position at all with Josh Beekman currently starting on the left side by default, and it's not like Webb can slide inside because he's way too tall to play that spot.
