Larry Mayer, of ChicagoBears.com, reports the
Chicago Bears are keeping all of their options open come draft day, including the idea of moving out of the No. 4 spot in order to pick up additional selections. "We'll never pass up a great player," head coach Lovie Smith said. "But if you can get a great player later and pick up another pick, why not do that? We (also) may keep it right now."

I think trading up and gettng an impact defensive player, either that would be Rolle, Johnson, or somebody else on defense might not be a bad idea.

Discuss. :hmmm:

Too much compensation to move up to the 4th from 15. This draft is too weak to do anything but move down.

According to the trade value chart, the 1.4 is worth 2200 and the 1.15 is worth 1000. Any trade up the 1.4 would have to involve players unless CHI is desparate to move down. Of course pick values may be a little skewed this year because of the perception that the draft is pretty weak at the top but deep throughout.

True. However no one forsees any of the top three draft choices to be defensive players. SF is slated to pick up either Aaron Rogers or Alex Smith. Dolphins are most likely going w/ a RB (Depending on Ricky Williams situation), and the Browns are slated to pick up either a QB or an RB. But you never know with Crennel as he is a defensive kind of guy.

We have many positions to fill. Giving up two high picks to get one is not the best way to go. If we were one player away, it might be a good move.

The Chiefs can probably sit where they are and get a very good defensive player, Carlos Rogers, or one of the DEs.

I agree, keep our first 3 picks then on the 2nd day use all the extra picks to move up for more quality in rounds 4-7

i don't care whether they trade up or trade down or just stay where they fricken are now....

i just don't want to hear any more lame excuses about about why it's not going to work out.

this guys a project, this guy is raw, this guy is moving to another position...

you get paid millions to correctly identify the guys you want/need and go get them!!!!

To go from 15 to 4 we'd have to give up some of next years picks and probably next years 1st to do it. I could see trading up to the 10 hole but we jsut ain't got the ammo to do any more.
