Bears have 7 players in mind for their top draft pick - Approaching draft with "must win now" mindset. Could allow for trading down.

Ahead of (and behind) the Bears at No. 19 on draft day - Moon Mullin: some concern with teams directly before and after them.

Larry Mayer: Bears entering NFL Draft with flexibility - The acquisition of 10 new players this offseason gives Bears freedom to address needs or select BPA.

Follow WCG on Twitter. It's the nearest thing to heaven that I've seen.

Bears GM assesses draft's strengths, weaknesses - While Emery didn’t mention any specific names, he did talk about the strengths of the board.

Bears fortunate that Emery is no Jerry luck-alike - I'm reminded of the story of the golfer who said "The more I practise, the luckier I seem to get."

Bears looking to avoid players with injury risk - Too often in the recent past , Bears wound up with draft picks that had problematic medical histories. Thanks, Jerry.

[Video] Tom Waddle's draft strategy for picking at 19 - Tom Waddle is always right.

League unexpectedly expands rosters from 80 to 90 - Now we'll see more UDFAs that we love to fall in love with at training camp.

Lombardi's draft forecast - Chandler Jones up, Courtney Upshaw down.

Bowen: When will the 'run' on CBs begin? - Bears have depth and retained Jennings, so may not be in CB mode early on. A few top CB prospects.

Draft preview: Linebackers - Is it time for Bears to find next generation of linebackers?

Draft preview: Outside linebackers - Bears have shown interest in Keenan Robinson.

Bears looking closely at Boise State's Shea McClellin - Are some of the players in a deep class of DEs better fits there or as an OLB in a 3-4 scheme?

D-linemen could be drafted early, often - With an abundance of run stuffers and pass rushers available, defensive linemen could account for nearly one-third of the first-round picks in the draft. Slightly less certain with Angelo gone.

ProFootballFocus: Redrafting the 2008 First Round - Chris Williams hasn't worked out quite as well as we'd hoped.

Bears punter visits area middle school - Adam Podlesh, a cancer survivor, visited Heineman Middle School in Algonquin Friday to help kick off a fundraising event.

NFL alumni to announce second-day draft picks - A certain mama's boy features for the Bears.

This might be the first Icelandic group ever to feature in The Den (yes, that's Björk singing; I apologise for Einar's crappy annoying vocal injection. He regularly ruined Sugarcubes songs for me.)...
