Wish we would start looking for a back up QB. Not sold on Chase and Tyler.

Really was hoping for Jackson here from Buffalo.
Like some of these signings but is gonna be hard for them to make this loaded squad.

Good luck to these kids.

Which in the grand scheme of things is probably fine.


it's always hard when you root for that fringe guy hoping his glimmer turns into an explosion.

I think Wims and Toliver still have a chance to stick. Nall is probably a goner.


Create competition and let the better players win.

I really think Wims should be a move TE. He is listed at 220 but at the end of the the year he looked jacked. I bet he was closer to 240.

This Dax kid could easily make this team. I really liked him and thought the Bears could draft him.

Hall while I think should have been drafted could use some PS time to develop the route tree. He sure can run though.

Lowery Bars and Tucker easily have a shot in this league. Anyone who starts for 3 years at an Ohio or ND generally sticks in the league a few years.

I'm a total sucker for the small school success stories, and as a consequence know far more than I should about such guys each draft.

Doyin Jibowu is nearly as intriguing to me as Stephen Denmark. Both are long shots to be anything beyond roster filler, of course.

A little more info on some of the guys we signed:

Bears signed Ohio OT Joe Lowery.
Lowery (6’6/300) was a three-year starter at left tackle for the Bobcats, earning first-team All-MAC as a redshirt senior in 2019 and PFF College’s highest run-blocking grade in the country. Lowery’s stock took a hit when he managed eighth-percentile SPARQ results at the Combine. Nevertheless, Lowery’s game tape is dominant enough to warrant a look at guard or right tackle. He certainly won’t be staying on the blind side in the pros.

Bears signed Utah State TE Dax Raymond.
Raymond (6’5/255) turned pro as a redshirt junior after making 22 starts for the Aggies, earning honorable mention All-Mountain West in each of his final two seasons and leaving school with a career 72/873/3 (12.1 YPC) receiving line. Raymond tested as just a 21st-percentile athlete at the Combine, running 4.73 with a 32-inch vertical. Raymond’s tape reveals a possession pass catcher who struggles to secure the ball above his head and was largely a non-factor as both a run and pass blocker. He’s a long shot to become more than a No. 2 tight end.

Bears signed Missouri WR Emanuel Hall.
Hall (6’2/201) flashed dominant deep-threat ability in Drew Lock’s spread attack, logging a career 97/2,016/16 (20.8 YPR) receiving line and averaging 23.5 yards per catch over his final two seasons. Hall battled recurring hamstring and groin injuries as a junior and senior, however, and those issues almost certainly caused him to fall out of the draft. Healthy for the Combine, Hall tested as a near-100th-percentile SPARQ athlete with 4.39 speed and elite vertical (43 ½") and broad (11’9") jumps. Hall has the upside of a quality deep threat, but his injury history and inconsistent hands make him a boom-or-bust prospect.

I usually take these UDFA signings with a grain of salt, but Raymond could be starting for the Bears in two years. I thought he’d go in R2 or 3.


So did Greg Gabriel. He was on the Score and mentioned him as a potential pick nearly every round.

Interesting deets on Mathieu Betts, who I think could push Fitts off the roster with a strong offseason.

Quote:
If #Bears UDFA Mathieu Betts participated at the Combine, he would have ranked extremely well at EDGE:

Broad Jump: 9’9” (6th)
40-Yard Dash: 4.7s (4th)
Short Shuttle: 4.28s (4th)
3-Cone Drill: 6.77s (1st)

**3-Cone Drill is typically a great indicator of success as an EDGE.**

This dude looked electric in the video UOK posted. Curious to see him and really how strong he is at the POA. 3 down OLB or is he just a pass rush specialist?

I hate doing this kind of comparison, but... for perspective, these are Mack's combine numbers.

Broad Jump: 128in
40-Yard Dash: 4.65
Short Shuttle: 4.18
3-Cone Drill: 7.08

Both 6'3 250

Heard some things on Hall...

Mizzou was 7 and 0 when he played and 1 and 5 when he was limited or out.

His QB called him a safety blanket.

Inside the building at Mizzou there were rumblings that if he was banged up they felt he kind of took his sweet time coming back. I also heard some rumblings he may have an attitude problem but we can table that for right now.
