Pro Football Focus was a rare low grade ("below average") - which is not a big surprise considering PFF's reputation for head-scratching, hit-and-miss grading (like the Bears' Adrian Amos being the second-highest graded safety in the NFL last season). "This guy has decent size and I think he's got pretty good functional power". His position battle will include Jonathan Anderson and John Timu.

Their other projected starting wide receiver, Kevin White, who was the seventh overall draft pick in 2015, has played just five games in three years because of multiple injuries.

Iyiebuniwe is a small linebacker at 6-1, 229 pounds that ran a 4.6 at the National Football League combine and bench pressed 19 reps. He's an excellent athlete with quick feet and loose hips. The 5-foot-11 receiver struggled with injuries near the end of the season, but still put up 195 yards and three touchdowns in a double-overtime loss to UCF in the American Athletic Conference Championship. They're going to get the 'Memphis Grind.' I don't think they've seen that yet. Absolutely gonna give my all into it.

Over the past three seasons, Daniels was a starter for Iowa. Nichols ran a 4.95 40 at the Combine. Roseman did well in free agency and then added onto that start with a draft class that should pay dividends now and down the road. Nichols can develop behind Akiem Hicks, Eddie Goldman, Jonathan Bullard and Roy Robertson-Harris. The Bears failed to address a major need at outside pass rusher until taking Utah defensive end Kylie Fitts in the sixth round.

"Coach Ginn, he's an awesome guy", Nichols said.

A concerted effort of taking the best player available in the draft has allowed the Chicago Bears to land a slew of potential impact players.

Dan Durkin's take: Anchored the nose in Delaware's 3-4 scheme in 2017.

Daniels earned praise for his fluidity, quickness, initial contact, and finishes when blocking on the line, while docking him for his power.
