The wait is finally coming to an end. On Thursday night, the first round of the NFL Draft begins and the Chicago Bears hold the No. 19 overall selection.

Is it genuine or a smokescreen from new Bears GM Phil Emery? We will find out on Thursday night.
In the Tribune's latest mock draft, Sam Farmer has the Bears taking USC defensive end Nick Perry.
