In this Monday edition of Bears Bites, we take a look at a couple of different players that the Chicago Bears could take in the first round of the draft, whether or not the team should trade for a Detroit Lions star, and how the NFL is trying to cash in even more on the NFL Draft than it already has.

-We start out with our pal Dan Durkin, who says that the Bears need to adhere to the maxim “safety first” as they consider which player to take in the first round of the draft, which begins May 8th. [CBS Chicago]

-We are suckers for mock drafts, so we went ahead and perused Blake Van Poucke’s latest offering in that area. Very interesting stuff here. [Chicago Bears Huddle]

-Following Jay Cutler on the Bears’ depth chart, the team doesn’t have a definitive answer on who the number two quarterback will be. John Mullin suggests that the position is something the Bears could look to the draft to fill. [CSN Chicago]

-Throughout NFL history, the #14 slot in the draft has been surprisingly fruitful for teams. [Daily Herald]

-Should the Bears trade for Ndamukong Suh? That’s the question that Michael C. Wright tackles with zeal in his Twitter mailbag. [ESPN Chicago]

-The Bears could be entering the season with a really solid and deep offensive line. Will that be the case in Week 17? Only time will tell. [Chicago Sun-Times]

-Could the 2015 NFL Draft last four entire days? NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell seems to want that, but will fans respond kindly to the idea? [Chicago Tribune]

-Finally, the San Francisco 49’ers seem to be leaning toward giving troubled linebacker Aldon Smith another chance to stay with the team after his latest arrest at LAX. [Shutdown Corner]
