Bears would be wise to draft a ILB this year. Free Agency has to improve the OL and TE. Having Urlacher on the field and mentoring the drafted guy would help too. Minter looks like the perfect replacement. Ogletree did some dumb stuff in the past. Not what Emery is looking for.
Emery likes character, leadership and personality paired with football IQ and instincts.
Minter looked marginally worse than Te'o in every drill and ran a 4.82. I don't see how you can upgrade him over Te'o. If we still have those pass protection responsibilities for the MLB, I can't see us using a high pick on him.
Mike Matui from Penn State works for me. Great leader and can't complain with a 4th round value.
