    Jerry Angelo had a big weekend, drafting five players for the Bears, ticking off the Ravens, and pulling off a trade to grab the player they wanted. He also spoke to the media in the way only Jerry Angelo can -- poetically.

    Here, presented in the form of poetry, actual quotes from Angelo's mouth about the draft.

    I wish I found a bottle on the beach.

    We had an opportunity to make a move earlier ... earlier
    The bottom line is they've got to have the fiber to play and that's the glue that's going to allow all these traits to come to fruition

    In a long version, we just felt like, because he is that hard to find
    Let's not look a gift horse in the mouth.
    So, it's hard to find a guy.
    I wish I found a bottle on the beach.
