    Bears Fans....

    Washington is showing interest in Briggs and is willing to give their #6 overall pick for him and the Bears #31 pick.

    My question is, what do the Bears do with that pick if this goes down? I would like to see them pick up the QB of the future, but who knows what they will do with it.

    Re: Bears Fans....

    I'd love to see them continue to load up on defense. Not a huge "superfan" of the NFL draft like some people so others would have to elaborate on who is out there.

    Re: Bears Fans....

    Calvin Johnson is who I'd target if he's still there. Huge playmaker.

    Then again, I doubt he's still on the board.

    Thats why I feel they are going to trade the #6 pick and the #37 pick to Cleveland for their #3 overall pick. Then draft Calvin Johnson and this offseason doesnt seem as bad as it once did.

    Re: Bears Fans....

    If they do that, you're right - the off-season looks a whole lot better.

    Does Cleveland take the deal though? They're in desperate need of difference makers. Pair up Johnson with Winslow and that's a nice duo.

    Re: Bears Fans....

    I dont know, you may have to give them our fourth rounder too but they looking to draft Adrian Peterson and it is looking like he will still be there at #6.

    Re: Bears Fans....

    I think they'd take the tackle out of Penn State, Levi Brown I believe his name was. Grossman was bad, but the line didn't do a great job of protecting him, either. If Quinn somehow slipped to them, I think they would need to pull the trigger on him.

    Re: Bears Fans....

    Unless you need to take a QB or are named Detroit and have taken a WR #1 for the past 235 years - I can't see how you pass up on Calvin Johnson. The kid has everything you want and need in a top wide receiver.

    If I'm Cleveland or any other team in position to take Calvin and another team comes calling - I'm asking for a lot in return.

    I think I've seen 1st round trades that consist of switching spots in that year and giving up your first round pick in the next season. I doubt you'll see someone at the top take any less value than that if Calvin is still on the board.

    Re: Bears Fans....

    I had heard they wanted to keep both low first round picks to get the Penn St. duo of linebackers... It would be great to see them get another playmaker to spread the field. Having Berrian and Johnson on the outside and Mush inside would be sweet...
