Arkansas C Jonathan Luigs

Holmeslice with the pick...

The Bears opened their present early in getting Jay Cutler, leaving some less glamorous but no less important needs to be filled with the remaining picks. Their two most notable needs are on the offensive line and at WR (when could we say Chicago is not at need for WR?!).

Luigs gets the nod over some of the tackles because the major bulk of the tackles have disappeared at this point. They need help all along the line where they can get it and Luigs has excelled at center and seems fit for interior line work. This means he can likely play as a guard or center, improving his versatility and stock for the Bears. Some selling points out of his scouting report are "Technically sound, nasty on field demeanor, and a fantastic mix of tools and intangibles." The Bears don't want to whiff on this pick as it will be very crucial to the continuing development of Cutler (and also so that he doesn't start crying after every game from being sacked so much).

They could also reach for a WR, but it would seem with their conservative drafting nature that taking a risk on a receiver based purely on need is not the smartest move. They go O-line and nobody regrets it.

Round 1 is here.

Previous pick: RB Donald Brown
