    Congrats to Aaron! Hopefully Scott and D-Jack get picked up here late.

    Re: Brant to the bears

    If not, i'm sure both are near locks to get picked up in free agency. Which with Jackson, is a great pick up for whoever might sign him. Cause for cheap money they'll get to see how well he heals, and if he gets back to his old form, they basically have given themselves and extra draft pick

    Re: Brant to the bears

    At this point, there's not a big difference between getting drafted or not. Regardless, they'll get contracts and invitations to mini camp to try to make the team. A lot of 7th round picks don't make teh team.

    Re: Brant to the bears

    I am just shocked Stephenson has not been selected yet.

    I just feel awful for Jackson too. Hopefully he will get a big contract after his first one to compensate for the injury he suffered.

    I cannot believe Brant was selected, good job out of him. Makes you wonder why the O-Line performed so bad when two of the starters have NFL type talent.

    No, most people said that Reggie Stephens was the best o-lineman at the end of the season.

    My guess is the fact that nothing ever changed scheme-wise and teams knew that would be the case so the o-line was manhandled by blitzes and looks designed to stop the terrible play calling by ISU.

    Scary to think about what could have been the last three seasons if there would have been some outside of the box thinking. I should not say outside the box, I should just say changing things up!

    Until Olin punches him in the face and breaks his nose like he did to another lineman in camp last year!

    Re: Brant to the bears

    Brant will need to become more aggressive and develop a mean streak to make. He has the tools, just not the makeup. Perhaps the first time Brian Urlacher comes on a blitz in camp against him wil force him to take it up a notch. Too bad for Deandre J. Stephenson seemed to be being told he would be first day pick, but his performance at the combine likely really hurt him. Lack of strength offsets his aggressiveness. Hopefully he gets on with a team where he can prove himself

    Re: Brant to the bears

    Drew Tate didn't go anywhere either. I was pretty sure that the Raiders were debating between Tate and Jamarcus Russell. Then from there, he kind of slid like Brady Quinn. It must have been a team needs thing!

    I don't get it, either. I mean, didn't Tate win over Russell in a head-to-head match at the Capital One Bowl?
