Matt Bowen joins Chicago Tribune Live to look at what to expect in next week's NFL combine and April's NFL Draft - 2/13
The Chicago Bears selected Barrett jump whoever's in Alabama classic grade I -- mr. Rick picked I don't to -- my next guy -- today for one he's gonna is our players like are fifteen they're saying. Can the Bears are pointing to move up so little creativity in get a stud who settled into your move up it'll have a three hi I'm gonna move up to be part of what -- give to move up -- yeah well how it is in moving back that's a good player. -- -- -- what would you do with 54. -- run or less. It's because the glasses and yeah exactly so I would probably bring him back for one more year. I don't think there's. A ready made alternative in our system so we looked at the tape and stuff we've decided to extend -- one year off this does the does the prospect of drafting men -- -- in the first round -- know anybody why doesn't scare me. How does this series here on out there's excitement here does that excite me yeah. When you played awfully poorly in the national image of James if you look at the whole body of work I've talked to scouts love his take emergencies he's trying to run. Once thought I talked to sit for 654 -- few runs any tests blood in the have my girlfriend stuff doesn't bother me no no the Figueroa -- stuff forget about it word karma now I think I guess I don't you know that the question. Do it is the -- girlfriend stuff though. -- is that. That's kind of the tip of the bigger iceberg I guess but I went right at I mean I think you. Yeah I -- NFL so much about toughness and all that I mean he he looked really vulnerable there. Tom and I think also now he's gonna be known -- like that guys are wonder if it's gonna affect him as a player. I think it affected him in the championship game but right now session -- -- -- know the other thing is that you have to remember this guys -- middle linebacker he's supposed to be the leader -- your defense the other players on defense are supposed to look up to him he's supposed to tell them what to do and you know that's it. -- there are pre draft -- so sort of look at this kid in mid to late first round of stories of the memorial is that somewhat hesitated to read the body of work you say he's too good it's too long he played too -- game but if you bring back. -- I'm Molly adding Burton family get radio laying your for him only from and the if I have. 54 back there for one more year. And I draft -- type -- He can develop behind Urlacher and our young players you drafted in the first original play well play them at the end -- that this thing missing on the grill one back now -- the other. I think you can do in a situation like that is you could. Put whoever you draft whether it's -- where Alec Ogletree -- whichever linebacker. At strong side linebacker for a year or you could even maybe -- lack of for a year to two strong side linebacker. Nick Roach is a free agent as well. So -- issued a strong side doesn't have to run as much as middle. -- looked covered -- well it depends depends how you get out of line and how you how you scheme woman who you play you know but with that. In you know you gonna have a different scheme with Mel Tucker it's not going to be exactly the name the Sam linebacker has to bring your heart that. I'm going to take a lot of block right into a lot of dirty work the people talk modern TV I feel how other players can make plays mister Jordan could survive what about Tyler right Byrd as a tight end. -- might -- be territory. I think there's a chance he'll probably be the first tight end off the board. In the first had an off the board -- he's a spectacular talent usually goes in that twenty to thirty range. And I think I for probably will go there the kid from Stanford will go probably go in the same. Range -- hurts. That Garcia. I've heard is wow he's tough to cover I mean he's exceptional. I don't know what he's gonna run. But man and he looks like a guy you just throw it up okay he comes now like in football types to explain to me because I remember Dave Watson going to hit a home run we got a guy who. Managed to -- 54 million times when he ran a 2740. Foot putt and John -- salsa gives. That's a good argument example. What -- Anquan -- -- at this stage of his career Rory was born on any day really -- that's incredible for seven coming out -- ten -- cares what -- -- for drugs he takes place. OK and there are a lot of guys like that was the famous for the Mike met mile the guy from BC was a workout freak too well but for the honor and I was certain that I'm a flip. Is there are a lot of guys who make play unless you're -- -- athletic abilities so to succeed and your cornerback and you have the speed to you know so if -- step behind a guy that you can make -- I -- certain positions -- got used to stop -- position something -- -- receiver and -- Every scouts who won a time when those guys period if you run. A fourth reverses a four or five people are noticing until wide receivers that don't run well and make plays well there always are powerful tsunami -- ran like a 48 as well look at the depth and maybe they're on the play isn't gonna get a heart. Also on -- where he runs forward for four. He plays about a 46 easy he ran a four fellow pro day will very definitely out on the -- and that's got it right exactly because these kids straight for this is it that Tom -- take home and I know exactly what is found that the steps. How you start. -- the best got you got Gaza for three. Go to film as a player before -- for five guys got to stay with the all shot. Might have great forty time these par 45 or six that.
