Chicago Bears: Lovie's Safety Dance

For the eighth straight year under Lovie Smith, the Chicago Bears drafted a safety. Just like clockwork.

This year, the Bears spent a third-round pick, for the third consecutive year, on a safety. The inability to either identify the right talent or develop the talent they have, has played a key role in the lack of depth at other positions.

In addition to the draft, the Bears traded for Adam Archuleta and Chris Harris and also signed Josh Bullocks, Glenn Earl as free agents, Brandon Meriweather, in addition to a litany of undrafted free agents. 

Let's look back on the position, focused specifically on the draft, that continues to frustrate Bear fans on draft day (and Sundays) year after year.
