Draft Grades: Bears the Long Road

Draft Grade:  C

The Picks

1. Kyle Long, G, Oregon.
2. Jon Bostic, ILB, Florida.
3. Khaseem Greene, OLB, Rutgers.
4. Jordan Mills, OT, Louisiana Tech.
4. Cornellius Washington, OLB, Georgia.
6. Marquess Wilson, WR, Washington St

Biggest Needs: 


  • LB
  • OL
  • TE
  • QB

What They Did Right:

Kyle Long (Howie’s son & Chris’ brother) has the bloodline to succeed, and LB Jon Bostic is a beast––he will be asked to fill the void created by Brian Urlacker’s departure.

What they did wrong:

First pick Kyle Long might have been a reach, and with lots of quality TEs and QBs available in this draft, it’s odd that they didn’t grab one.
