With the thirteenth pick in the first round of the NFL Draft, the Bears selected Kyle Fuller out of Virginia Tech. He is a young corner that fits perfectly with Charles Tillman, aka he's a very physical corner back. He can also crush. And when I say crush I mean crush running backs and receivers. On top of that, he has good awareness and decent ball hawking skills.
Two more standouts from Bears OTAs are Brock Vereen and Ka’Deem Carey. Vereen I can’t say enough about. He can tackle players at will, but is also a huge playmaker, a ball hawk, and can make key plays at key times.
Carey, out of Arizona University, is such an explosive running back that after he gets the ball and sees even the slightest of openings, he's going to take it and be gone. Once Matt Forte either retires or is let go to free agency (hopefully neither happens soon), Carey will be a very explosive running back in the NFL. One other thing that Carey possesses is great awareness. He will easily be able to find holes in the defense.
The Bears also drafted defensive tackle Ego Ferguson out of LSU with their second pick in the draft and defensive tackle Will Sutton with their third pick. Those two together can make a very deadly duo. With Ferguson, he is a very good pass rusher and has a high motor off the snap. He also has five pass deflection in his career, 85 tackles, and five tackles for loss. However, there is one down side for Ego. He only has one career sack.
As for Sutton, this year wasn’t his best in regards to sacks as he only tallied four. However, in his junior season, when he didn’t have as much weight, he recorded 13 sacks and 23.5 tackles for loss. If he can get his weight down, which he says he has been trying to do, the skies the limit.
Chicago also drafted David Fales out of San Jose State University. Fales has great footwork, but still needs to work on his throwing power. His strength is that he was one of the more well-polished quarterbacks in the draft.
Only time will tell just how well all of these players will look over the next few years. But if I had to predict now, I think the Bears struck gold as this could turn out to be one of their better drafts in recent memory.
