#14 Chicago Bears: Timmy Jernigan, DT FSU
Rory’s Take: Jernigan plays more nose tackle than he does three technique, but he does have the explosiveness to make the transition nicely. With the big contracts to Cutler and Jennings, tagging Melton will be tough and he could still get a lucrative contract in free agency.
Chase’s Take: We had Ra’Shede Hageman in this spot last week, and the Bears will have to settle for another defensive tackle in Timmy Jernigan who was outstanding during the Seminoles National Championship season.
