Don't waste the pick. The Bears can't afford a miss this year. But they can afford a Curtis Enis, Michael Haynes, Cedric Benson, Marc Columbo, David Terrell, Cade McNown, Stan Thomas, potentially Chris Williams, kind of draft.
They need a solid starter.
The Bears cannot draft Michael Floyd.
This guy was arrested twice for underage consumption. He was arrested in May of 2011 for drunk driving, according to ESPN, and he was twice above the legal limit.
This was not a guy who went out, had a couple of beers, thought he was fine and got popped. This was a guy on a mission with total disregard for human safety—his own or the people whose lives he may have affected—which sadly, is more often the case with drunk drivers.
Floyd is simply not a safe enough pick. His upside is minimal. He drops passes and disappeared in some of Notre Dame's biggest games—see USC and Florida State for a couple of examples.
Either the Bears trade up or hope someone falls. I would love to see Luke Kuechly fall to the Bears. He would instantly bolster the linebacking corp. Alshon Jeffrey is another one who could fall that would change the Bears in year one.
If not Kuechly or Jeffrey, I think it's a safe bet that Mark Barron falls to the Bears.
He's a solid ball hawk and a great tackler. We need safety help. Green Bay and Detroit have two of the best passing attacks in the NFL. Barron comes from a winning program where maximum effort is expected.
