Mock Draft version 3.

Some things have happened that have made me change up a couple of things.  here is what i think will happen, not what i want to happen.....

1-Rashard Mendenhall-RB, Illinois--Bears take the best available here.  The OT class is better than average, but after Clady and Long, the next 7 or so OT are the same level.  Bears pay who's worth it, expect Benson or AP to be cut, or traded.  I think Garrett Wolfe will stay.

2-Carl Nicks-OT, Nebraska--One of the next in the group of Cherilus, Baker, Otah and Williams.  The four just mentioned will probably be gone at 44, so Nicks is the next best.  He has great size and speed for an OT.

3a-Roy Shuening-OG, Oregon State--There's no saying if Beekman will be a starter.  Whether he is or not, depth is always a +.

3b-Tom Zbikowski-S, Notre Dame--Best Safety available at this point.  Hometown favorite, and has apparently already worked out with the Bears twice. 

4-Colt Brennan-QB, Hawaii--The 4th round or so is when teams start eating up the remaining half decent QBs.  Brennan is better than Josh Johnson and Kevin O'Connell at this point.

5-Davonne Bess-WR-Hawaii--He should pick up where Berrian left off.  Hes a speed WR, with great hands, which Berrian didnt have.  Can be deep threat and slot.  If Lloyd doesnt pan out, Bess will be the man.

6-Mike Gibson-OT, California--The Bears need depth for the abysmal OLine.  Gibson is very underrated, because coming from Cal, Desean Jackson gets all of the credit.......This guy gave the QB enough time to throw to Jackson, i like him.

7-John Masters-C, Michigan State--Olin Kreutz is 32, dont even ask how old Patrick Mannely is.  Time to groom a younger guy.

Supplemental pick(6 or 7th round)--Jehu Caulcrick-RB/FB, Michigan State--Very good runner.  Looks like a power back, blocks like a power back, hits like a power back, but is speedy.  Should challenge Jason McKie for the starting spot.
