Darren McFadden Chicago Bears

As first reported on the www.cbfans.info message board, by someone who knows someone who was at Chili’s in Little Rock earlier this week (funny), it is now confirmed that Lovie Smith and other Bears’ brass have met with Arkansas running backs Darren McFadden and Felix Jones.

No way do I see McFadden slipping to the Bears’ 14th pick. Now that Adrian Peterson exorcised the 2005 running back curse, when Ronnie Brown, Cedric Benson and Cadillac Williams were selected high and have yet to play to their expectations, teams will be back on the bandwagon of using high first-round picks on running backs.

If McFadden for some reason dropped all the way to the Bears at 14, they couldn’t pass on him in a million years in my opinion. But I don’t think it will happen, and the facts still prove that sixth-round picks such as Terrell Davis or undrafted players such as Willie Parker can outplay the overpaid, spoiled underachievers like Cedric Benson.

Next update next week.

    I say that the bears will trade up with either the chiefs at the 5th spot or the patriots at the 7th. By giving them our 14th pick and our 44th pick. because the pats always want more picks than the usual. and it would be amazing to see McFadden and Devin Hester both on offense. I think that would help us a lot. I also think that lovie can pick up some good o-lone in later rounds. we either are goin for mcfadden or jones in later rounds. this is like the chance of a life time, because nobody wants to miss out on the next adrian peterson (of the vikings). So we better do that and snatch him up or i will be extremely ANGRY WITH LOVIE if that happens!!!!!

    I say that the bears should use thier later round drafts (like the xtra drafts they will get for loosing some free agents in the 7th round). And use them to trade to some other team like the raiders or jets or pats. so that we can get darren mcfadden. but if we try to trade with the raiders or jets we would probably have to add our 6th round and maybe our 5th. But it would be worth it if we got darren mcfadden. Plus we got sandiegos 27th pick in the third round and possibly the 49ers pick for tampering with briggs. that would be the perfect scenario for the bears this draft.

    GO BEARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

    I know not many agree with me but I wouldn’t touch Big Mac if he dropped to the fourteenth. He did well in collage mainly though blind speed and blown coverages, something that won’t happen much in the NFL. He has a week base and won’t be able to take it between the tackles unless he beefs up and learns to push for the extra yardage. I know his speed’s to die for but he doesn’t have good vision or cut ability and doesn’t break many tackles. It’s much safer to go with Mendenhall who will be available at the 14. He has stronger legs and is only slightly slower than Big Mac also allowing Chi to trade up and get a stud tackle.

  4. I agree with you cylus. but what the bears should do for the second round is trade up one of thier third round picks and thier fourth rounder to get a higher second round pick so that we can get brian brohm and a good o tackle then get another o line guy with the next pick. then we should get a wide reciever in the 5th and for the 6th round they get who is the best that they can get ,the same goes for all of our 7th round picks.

    P.S. did any one hear about how the bears are thinking of trading thier third rounders to some one for thier second and fourth rounder.
