He got better as the game went on.  My concern for him this year is his play strength.  Early in the first qtr he got shoved back into the qb.  That will come over time but maybe not this year.  Overall he wasn’t that bad.  

But look at it this way.   He ain’t Speedbump McGee.  And for that I am thankful.

He is going to be fine in time.  Blitzing him and Daley during the first preseason game is a dick move by the Bears---OK, you fooled a couple rookies--hope the DC got a contract extension.

I was happy to see how vanilla we were on D.

Did he give up any sacks or pressures? Was he overwhelmed? 

I saw a rookie NFL LT. Make no mistake he can be an NFL LT

He reminds me a bit of current Saints LT Armstead and how terrible he looked in his rookie year. Hopefully Little can turn out as well as Armstead has since then...

Same thing with Matthews in Atlanta, looked totally over matched as a rookie and was really good his second year. Especially considering he is from an NFL family that shows how hard it is.

Honestly, and this is in the same vein of "Rivera Iced Kicker to Help Bears Evaluate Him" or whatever....I prefer preseason Ds throw as much at him as possible.  I want him to see those blitz plays.  I want that experience in a game time situation where there is no actual pressure.

Sad but true.

I'm no expert but he had a couple bad pressures but otherwise held up fine.

Not bad at all for your first NFL experience ever. 

We knew Little had the measurables to be an NFL tackle. Now it's up to him to correct what he needs to improve on.

Further, I don't see any reason Little shouldn't get the vast majority of snaps this preseason. Experience for him and rest for Darryl

Has Darryl ever played LT before?  Shouldn't he get some reps in a real game just to see if we need to switch moton over to LT again before the season starts?

I'm sure hell play third preseason first half with the rest of the starters

Not going to lie, I wanted Dillard when we were on the clock, but if Burns really is a full time starter, and can approach double digit sacks...that was probably more of a need than a T.

Let's just hope that Little just needs some marinating, and he can become a starter.

    • Just look at these four consecutive draft classes leading up to Hurney's firing... 2009 NFL Draft[edit] Round # Pick # Overall pick # Player Position College 2 11 43 Everette Brown Defensive end Florida State 2 27 59 Sherrod Martin Safety Troy 3 29 93 Corvey Irvin Defensive tackle Georgia 4 11 111 Mike Goodson Running back Texas A&M 4 28 128 Tony Fiammetta Fullback Syracuse 5 27 163 Duke Robinson Tackle Oklahoma 7 7 216 Captain Munnerlyn Cornerback South Carolina 2010 NFL Draft[edit] Round # Pick # Overall pick # Player Position College 2 16 48 Jimmy Clausen Quarterback Notre Dame 3 14 78 Brandon LaFell Wide receiver LSU 3 25 89 Armanti Edwards Quarterback/Wide receiver Appalachian State University 4 26 124 Eric Norwood Linebacker South Carolina 6 6 175 Greg Hardy Defensive end Mississippi 6 29 198 David Gettis Wide receiver Baylor 6 33 202 Jordan Pugh Safety Texas A&M 6 35 204 Tony Pike Quarterback Cincinnati 7 16 223 R.J.

Campbell Free safety California   I'm counting seven quality players in four years of drafting and one of them was a punter, a position that routinely goes undrafted.
