Kiper recently weighed in on what the Bears need to draft this year and the answer was pretty simple: All of it.
Let’s let Mel do the talking, as told to the Chicago Tribune:
“Wide receiver, offensive line, and obviously the quarterback situation has to be cleared up,” Kiper said during a conference call Wednesday. “Certainly wide receiver would be the one you have to look at. Maybe Percy Harvin [Florida], if he was there, I think is somebody they’d have to consider.
“I just think their defense, which did not get it done in a lot of games, has to be looked at,” Kiper continued. “And Tyson Jackson from LSU, a defensive end, would seem to [fit] kind of the mold of the versatile defensive lineman that they like.”
Got that, Bears fans and front office? Wide receiver, offensive line and quarterback are all top priorities. And just for good measure, go ahead and address that once-vaunted but now old-and-porous defense.
Really, how hard can it be to fix all that in one offseason?
