Chicago Bears Football- The draft has ended. The Chicago Bears have made their picks and they may be called enlightened. With picks on both sides of the ball general manager Phil Emery filled several big holes on the defense and even planned ahead on the offense.
Chicago Draft Picks pt. 1
In the fourth round the Chicago Bears selected running back Ka’Deem Carey out of Arizona. There had been a lot of discussion about finding someone to replace Micheal Bush who was released earlier this year. Carey had a very impressive college career although he also has had some off the field behavioral issues as well. In his Arizona years he amassed 4,239 rushing yards, with each of his final 16 games having over 100 yards. With 48 rushing touchdowns, he made a huge impact in the PAC-12 Conference. Although he has run into some legal trouble, he claims that that life is behind him and he is ready to move on.
After all of the complaints that a safety was not taken in the first round, the Bears finally picked one up after trading down to get Brock Vereen. With 127 solo tackles, three interceptions and two forced fumbles, Brock Vereen has numbers to back up his fourth round status. Although at 6 ft. and 199 lbs. he may be a little small for a safety he has the skill set to take him further.
“With some of those bigger guys, the more film study you can do on them to get any advantage to use as far as their timing and how they like to use their body, you can play big with them.” - Brock Vereen
This may also be why the Chicago Bears have already signed a four year deal with the new safety.
In the sixth round the Chicago Bears selected a quarterback by the name of David Fales out of San Jose State. With over 8,000 passing yards, 66 touchdowns and a passer rating of 161.7 it may turn out to be one of the steals of the draft. There should be no doubt by now that Jay Cutler will be the starting quarterback for the next few seasons; however, this may be a great opportunity for Marc Trestman to build the player which he wants for the future of the Chicago Bears.

The Chicago Bears are known for taking risky picks in the draft. Remember when they took Kyle Long in the first round?

People who follow the Chicago Bears are used to watching strong defensive teams. The 2013 season was an anomaly, an exception to the rules sort of speak. You watch the Bears break records on the defensive side of the ball and not in the most positive of ways. Help on... Read More
The post Did the Chicago Bears Get Better or Worse After Draft appeared first on The Outside Analysis.
Ego Ferguson the Younger has lived his life with the same first name as Ego Ferguson the Elder. (according to my friend Mike Ragz of 95.7 The Fan’s Ragz and the Bartender) I guess if Ferguson’s Dad had to endure all the Freudian puns, then so will his son. Does Ego Ferguson has siblings named Id and Superego?……..

Okay, now we’ll get to talking...
Both Kain Colter and Jordan Lynch are in my “2014 Publicity NFL Mock Draft.” It would go like this: Johnny Manziel goes first to Houston, Michael Sam second to St. Louis (hey that really happened six rounds later) AJ McCarron third to Jacksonville, Tommy Rees 4th overall to Cleveland, well you get the idea. As fun an idea as this is, you start to only have regional names left...
