They actually looked pretty good against the Falcons and would have won Sunday if they had some receivers who could make some clutch plays!

That was so frustrating watching them try to convert on that final goal line stand. Really wanted that Atlanta loss.

Tarik Cohen looks like a weapon for the Bears. Could be hearing that name for a while to come.

I liked the moves the human joystick made in college, really elusive. That kind of slipperiness is very rare. I would have liked to see him in Green Bay as a change of pace RB and returner, but at a listed 5'6" and 180lb, he may be too small to hold up long in the NFL. Also he went 13 picks  into round 4. Due to his height/weight limitations, I thought bottom of round 5 or top of round 6 was where he fitted. The Bears had something of a luxury pick when they took him, as they had already had a pick eight spots earlier (where they took Alabama safety, Eddie Jackson).

He reminds me that players I liked before the draft often get picked too early to be good value. For example, CB Brendon Langley (comp 3rd rounder for Denver) was a great size/speed prospect (6'0", 200lb, 4.43 40, 22 reps on the 225lb bar), but this looked at least 2 rounds too early for what he showed in college. He is far from, say, Fabian Moreau quality (who went 20 picks earlier).
