1. No more "redshirt" years for high draft picks
While sixth-round quarterback Dan LeFevour will likely carry a clipboard as the No. 3 and seventh-round offensive tackle J'Marcus Webb could use a year of seasoning on the practice squad, Wright, Wootton and Moore need to be active on game day and it will be a disappointment if they're not.
2. Martz is happy with the skill-position talent
If Martz had stepped foot on the practice field for voluntary workouts and didn't like what he saw from a skill-position perspective, you can bet he would have been in Angelo's ear begging for another weapon to employ in his high-risk offense.
3. A backup for Harris is yet to be determined
The Bears' director of college scouting, Greg Gabriel, has already said Wootton isn't big enough to slide inside, which means it's time for Gilbert to step up and be known for more than jumping out of a pool on YouTube.
4. Beekman can relax, although Moore should be nervous
2009 fourth rounder D.J. Moore, on the other hand, could be on the hot seat already, as Angelo went out of his way following the draft to say he doesn't want any more short corners – Moore is generously listed at 5-9.
5. Wheeling-and-dealing days may be done
Most of the draftniks are grading the Bears in the B-minus to C-plus range for their efforts, in part because they didn't make a pick until 75th overall, but at least Angelo has his first and second rounder back come 2011.
