  1. I live in Ohio and am a huge OSU fan. I have watched Freeman play his entire collegiate career. He is a STUD. Great athlete and a really intelligent player. He will add depth to our linebacking core and should contribute right off the bat on special teams. I am really pumped that we were able to pick him up, and I am pretty excited about Gilbert too. Don’t know much about the rest of the picks. Go Bears!

  2. Gilbert jumps out of pools, which gives us an immediate advantage if it starts raining. I have already put copyright licence on the nickname “Aquaman”. One thing I don’t understand is why we didn’t draft anyone for the secondary. D.J. Moore is 5’9″. There is no way he could handle Calvin Johnson. Again, next year we need to give up as many picks as it takes to get Taylor Mays.

  3. Draft seemed fine to me, it’s such a tease anyway as we have no idea how good it *really* is until 2 or 3 years from now. Johnny Knox ran a 4.34 40 so we might be looking at another Berrian in a few years. Angelo says DJ Moore “plays big”, and he better since he’s just over 5 1/2 feet tall. I think Peter King said Moore has 1st round talent but late round size. Who knows, maybe it will work out.

    I can’t wait to see an article on Brigg’s cut hand – what’s with that!??!?!
