Even though the Bears finished the 2012 season with a 10-6 record, the Bears offensive line was exposed again in 2012, allowing 44 sacks, eighth most among all teams. In addition, when free agency was about to begin, there was a need at the guard position where the starting right guard, and back-up right guard and left guard are all free agents, along with the back-up right tackle. One way or another, the Bears needed to add Continue reading

The draft is a great time to build for the future. Several teams in the NFC which came close to making the playoffs last season (the Bears, Cowboys, and Giants) are hoping to make the playoffs this season. Several other teams whose 2012 seasons were a disaster (the Eagles, Cardinals, and Lions) are looking to turn things around. If there was a young player or Continue reading

The first round of the draft is always the most unpredictable. One week ago, no one would have believed the Dolphins would trade down to the third pick to draft a defensive end as opposed to the best offensive tackle on the board. No one would have believed that DJ Hayden would have been the first defensive back drafted. No one would have believed Continue reading
This year’s draft will likely be the most unpredictable in history. One thing appears certain though. A large number of offensive linemen will be drafted. It is expected that four offensive tackles will be drafted within the first seven picks in the draft. One quarter of the picks will be spent on offensive linemen, tackles and guards. This could be a record! In terms of quarterbacks, at least one quarterback, maybe Continue reading
“Taking care of business” is the name of the game in free agency and in the NFL draft. It’s a time teams evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of their roster and then try to make everything better. Evaluating players isn’t easy, but neither is deciding when a need on your team should be filled and by which player. Evaluate the player, the role they will fill on the team, and then decide when to take them in the draft. It’s executing a game plan. It’s fantasy football, but in reality. Continue reading

This past weekend, The Fantasy Greek participated in a two-day, seven-round mock draft whose participants were comprised of a group of several football and sport personalities, including college scouts and pro football analysts. Each personality drafted for one AFC team and one NFC team. The Fantasy Greek drafted for both the Bears and Dolphins. Unlike the Dolphins who have eleven draft picks and most other teams which have seven draft picks, the Bears have only five draft picks due to various trades over the past couple of seasons. As a result, the Bears will have to be judicious in their use of the picks and make each and every one count. However, Continue reading
