Chicago Bears: Bullard the best pick in the draft?

According to the experts at Pro Football Focus, the Chicago Bears made the best pick in this year’s NFL Draft. When Florida defensive lineman Jonathan Bullard fell to Chicago in the third round it was a big surprise. Rated by some as a first-round tallent, Bullard’s drop was inexplicable in many ways.
