The Chicago Tribune reports that while the Bears still consider going after a veteran QB they are also mulling over their draft possibilities. At this point it looks like the Bears have only 3 QBs rated high enough to take with their seventh overall pick. Kentucky's Tim Couch, Syracuse's Donovan McNabb and Oregon's Akili Smith are the QBs the Bears rank that high but of course with about two months to go before the draft things could change. The Bears also feel they could draft a QB with any of their first three selections and they did spend some time with Ohio State QB Joe Germaine at the combine. For their first pick the Bears have other options as well, trade down with a team looking for Georgia's Champ Bailey (if he lasts that long), take a defensive player or take an offensive tackle.
