It's a landslide victory for Courtney Upshaw in this draft: he beats out every other option for the San Diego Chargers, giving them a quality edge rusher for the first time since Shawne Merriman got caught with steroids. The Chargers still have plenty of holes to fill, though, despite being close to the playoffs last year. Upshaw, interestingly, is the fourth Alabama player to come off the board here. Championship caliber talent on that team, apparently.

On we move to the Chicago Bears, a team that looked easily playoff-bound early in the season, before they lost their starting quarterback and nearly every remaining game on their schedule. The Bears have holes, especially on offense. Their offensive line was terrible, Brandon Marshall is their only competent receiver and they have no tight end. But at least there's Matt Forte, for now. So, who do you think the Chicago Bears will draft with the 19th overall pick?
