Two defensive, two offensive picks complete Bears 2010 draft

A day after bolstering their defensive backfield with the drafting of Florida safety, Major Wright, the Bears continued their defensive picks in rounds 4 and 5 Saturday.
 
In the fourth round, the Bears picked up Northwestern defensive end Corey Wootton (6′ 7″, 270). Some ‘experts’ projected Wootton as a potential first- or second-round pick during his junior year in ’08. But an ACL injury in the Alamo Bowl that year dropped his stock. Wootton finished his Wildcat career with the most starts in school history (49), third all-time in sacks (18.5) and fourth in tackles for loss (38).
 
In the fifth round, the Bears added some depth at cornerback by drafting Kansas St.’s Joshua Moore. Moore (5′ 11″, 188 lbs) was a two-time honorable mention All Big 12, and in 2009 he recorded 64 tackles and two INTs.
 
The Bears took a highly decorated, but developmental, QB with their sixth round pick, Central Michigan’s Dan LeFevour. The 6′ 3″, 230-lb. LeFevour started 51 consecutive games during his college career. He scored the most touchdowns (149) in the history of the world (okay, in Football Bowl Subdivision history). He’s one of only two players (Vince Young) to throw for 3,000 yards and run for 1,000 in the same season. Despite his eye-popping stats, scouts question his arm strength, the competition he faced and the system he ran in college.
 
Hopefully, Jerry Angelo placed a courtesy call to his franchise QB to make sure the LeFevour pick didn’t ruffle Jay’s feathers.
 
With their final pick, the Bears gave new O-line coach Mike Tice a project in offensive tackle J’Marcus Webb. This monster of a man (6′ 8″, 328 lbs) played Division II ball at West Texas A&M. Perhaps the most impressive thing about Webb (besides the fact he has an apostrophe in his first name) is he wears a size 19 shoe.
 
So after months of anticipation, there you have it folks – the Bears 2010 draft. The 5 picks were the lowest number the Bears have had in the Jerry Angelo era.
Give us your grade.
