    Kevin Seifert

    Khaseem Greene isn't that big at 6-foot and 241 pounds. He doesn't test particularly fast, having run his 40-yard dash in 4.71 seconds. But Greene was an awfully successful and productive playmaking linebacker at Rutgers and appears to be a particula...

    Kevin Seifert

    It's easy to make a list of why the Chicago Bears shouldn't have drafted Oregon guard Kyle Long. Long has a thin Division I resume, having played in 11 games during his only year at Oregon and starting less than half of them. He has a long list...

    Kevin Seifert

    Say this much for Chicago Bears general manager Phil Emery: He knows how to pull off a surprise. No one saw him trading last year for receiver Brandon Marshall. I don't think many people expected him to draft Boise State defensive end Shea McCl...
