Let's see if we can get this straight. Prior to the trade for quarterback Jay Cutler just more than three weeks ago, general manager Jerry Angelo said the Bears had talked themselves into drafting a wide receiver in the first round with the 18th overall selection. Angelo thought there was a good chance the Bears could land a "blue'' receiver in that spot, meaning a guy who has a chance to be an elite performer. The Bears needed to upgrade their receiver corps and Angelo was willing to take the plunge after drafting only one wideout in the first round in the combined tenures of his time with the Bears and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Kyle Orton needed the help and it was on the way. OK. What exactly has changed?

The Bears are hosting Louisiana-Lafayette wide receiver Jason Chery on a pre-draft visit at Halas Hall today.

Chery played in the Texas vs. The Nation all-star game that general manager Jerry Angelo scouted. He's 5-11, 189 pounds, and is fast with a 40 time in the low 4.4 range. He's got the ability to be a returner and compete on special teams.
