The No. 10 outside linebacker available for the 2009 NFL Draft according to the experts at Scout.com, Follett is expected to be selected somewhere in Round 4 or 5.
JC's Take: The Bears didn't get quality play at strong-side linebacker this past year from either Hunter Hillenmeyer or Nick Roach, so they could use another potential starter there come training camp.
The No. 16 tight end available for the 2009 NFL Draft according to the experts at Scout.com, Follett is expected to be an undrafted free agent unless he squeezes into Round 7.
JC's Take: Kellen Davis has tons of potential after being taken in the fifth round last year, but he did not develop into the short-yardage and goal-line tight end this team lost when John Gilmore left in free agency.
The No. 12 wide receiver available for the 2009 NFL Draft according to the experts at Scout.com, Robiskie is expected to be selected somewhere in Round 3 or 4.
JC's Take: It's no secret the Bears had perhaps the worst group of wideouts in the league last year, so a top-notch possession target to line up opposite Devin Hester makes a lot of sense.
The No. 5 guard available for the 2009 NFL Draft according to the experts at Scout.com, Urbik is expected to be selected somewhere in Round 4 or 5.
JC's Take: Left guard Josh Beekman had a respectable 2008 and should continue to get better, but right guard Roberto Garza could be pushed out of the starting lineup by a youngster with some potential.
