With the 221st Pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, the Chicago Bears Select...
...Reggie Stephens, Guard, Iowa State.
Let's be honest, in the seventh round, you're just hoping to get lucky.
And since the Bears need a lot of help on the offensive line, why not try and get lucky with an offensive lineman?
He's a big guy, standing at 6'3" and weighing a svelte 338 pounds.
He was an honorable mention to the All-Big 12 team in 2009, which is saying something considering the talent in the Big 12.
He has experience starting at both left and right guard and has also started at center. That kind of flexibility is very useful for an offensive line that struggled at all positions last season.
Heck, maybe he could even learn to play tackle, and be a great replacement player for any injured teammates.
Or, perhaps the Bears get lucky and strike gold with him, and he turns out to be a Pro Bowl lineman.
Likely? No. But, definitely worth a shot.
He is somewhat nimble and quick for a man his size, running a 5.2 40-yard dash. That's faster than me, and I'm 5'10", 170 lbs., and in decent shape.
The Bears have their backs against the wall with this draft.
With no picks in the first two rounds, it is going to be tough to find good talent. Hopefully, they can get lucky with a few late round picks, or perhaps dupe a team into giving them a first or second round pick for lackluster talent and a later round draft pick.
