Each year the NFL Draft is filled with uncertainty. All 32 teams, including the Bears, have the opportunity to add valuable players to their roster. But in time only a handful of organizations will look back at this year’s draft and be pleased with the results.

In the weeks leading up to the draft most of the chatter is about how much a certain team likes or dislikes a certain player. But we have decided to reverse this way of thinking, and instead will share with you a variety of things the players are saying about the Bears.

Florida State Defensive end Cornellius “Tank” Carradine, a top 10 player at his position in the draft and a second round grade, believes his game is similar to current Bear Julius Peppers.

“[Peppers] runs to the ball all over the field," Carradine said. "I see things he does that I see on my film that I do."

How about the possibility of the Bears drafting Carradine to play opposite his NFL idol?

“It would be a dream,” Carradine said with a smile. “I would be very excited and it would motivate me.”

Peppers is a sure-fire future Hall of Famer and the same can be said about middle linebacker Brian Urlacher, who has played a position that has already produced multiple Canton members including Bill George, Dick Butkus and Mike Singletary.

Could Georgia linebacker Alec Ogletree be the next in a long line of elite playmakers at the position in Chicago?

“I would be a good fit because I feel like I would be able to carry on the tradition of having great linebackers,” Ogletree said. “They’ve had Urlacher and guys like that to come in and just keep carrying the torch, and I feel like I would be able to step in and do that.”
