Considering this draft is pretty deep at what we're looking for at guard I can see us grabbing Warmack, Cooper or Jones, or sliding up or down for either of them - depending how well they bench and look at the combine. I'd personally love Warmack think he can anchor the left side down with Tyron and be a road grader beside him for a decade - but Jones is incredibly versatile and can play any of the 5 positions.
Melton is a one of a kind disruptive player that would fit the scheme perfectly, but there is no one in hell Chicago lets him walk. That's not just something you do, unless a guy is an UFA and you can't match what he's gonna get on the open market.
