Lineman Or Receiver For Bears In First Round?

As much as the Chicago Bears need to add an offensive tackle in this year’s NFL Draft, that might not be in the cards. But a lot could still change as the NFL’s Scouting Combine begins on Thursday.

“There’s five really good offensive tackles in this draft and I just don’t think one’s going to fall to the Bears,” Dan Shonka of Ourlads.com said on the Mully and Hanley Show.

The five offensive tackles that Shonka referred to are generally accepted as Nate Solder, Anthony Castonzo, Gabe Carimi, Tyron Smith and Derek Sherrod.

“Then the next value after that would either be if you want to go for a center to replace Olin Kreutz,” Shonka said. “You know, get a guy like [Stefen] Wisniewski out of Penn State, who’s an outstanding center, or go to the wide receiver area. And right now we have Torrey Smith from Maryland picked in that slot.”
