ROUND 1 (7th overall)

Kevin White, WR, West Virginia

 

Ht: 6-2 5/8, Wt: 215, 40: 4.31, Arm: 32 5/8, Hand: 9 1/4.

Expected to step in immediately as starter opposite Alshon Jeffery. Last season was far-and-away his best. Caught 109 passes for 1,447 yards (13.3-yard average) and 10 touchdowns. Led all WRs at Combine with 23 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press. Dangerous big-play threat because of rare size-speed combo. Can get behind coverage, win deep jump balls from any DB and take short passes the distance with exceptional run-after-the-catch ability. Played just 2 seasons of FBS football after going juco route and had just 1 year of elite production.

ROUND 2 (39th overall)

Eddie Goldman, NT, Florida State

Ht: 6-3 7/8, Wt: 336, 40: 5.12, Arm: 33 1/8, Hand: 10 1/8.

Came out as a true junior after three seasons at AZSU with no redshirt season. Has played all along the D-line, but the Bears have him pegged as their NT of the future. Shows impressive quickness and agility for a big man and plays with power and physicality but could spend more time in the weight room after benching 225 pounds just 19 times at pro day. Stout anchor vs. the run who has played some of his best games when it mattered most.

ROUND 3 (71st overall)

Hroniss Grasu, C, Oregon

Ht: 6-3, Wt: 297, 40: 5.02, Arm: 32 1/8, Hand: 10 1/4

Started 52 games at center, although Bears believe he could provide some depth at guard. Parents are Romanian immigrants. Played through a left ankle injury last season that sidelined him for 3 games. Technician with good quickness, football character, leadership ability and agility, but he lacks strength, is a bit undersized and can be overpowered.

ROUND 4 (106th overall)

Jeremy Langford, RB, Michigan State

Ht: 5-11 5/8, Wt: 208, 40: 4.41, Arm: 31 1/2, Hand 8 3/4

Started all 27 games over previous 2 seasons. Rushed for 1,422 yards on 292 carries (4.9-yard average) with 18 touchdowns in 2013. Added 1,522 yards on 276 carries (5.5-yard average) with 22 touchdowns in 2014. Fastest RB at Scouting Combine as 10-yard split (1.5 seconds), 20-yard split (2.5 seconds) and 4.40 40-time all tied for fastest at Indianapolis. May not have the size to remain a workhorse in the NFL and doesn't run with great power, but he has a nose for the end zone and could be an effective complement to a starter.

ROUND 5 (142nd overall)

Adrian Amos, FS, Penn State

Ht: 6-0 1/2, Wt: 218, 40: 4.49, Arm: 32 1/4, Hand: 9 1/8.

Started his last 38 games, including all 37 past three seasons. Ran a 4.56 40 at the Combine and 4.37 at his pro day. Repped 225 pounds 21 times on the bench press. Played cornerback earlier in his career and is a fine ball athlete who shows good cover skills, range and football smarts. Will turn down contact and doesn't appear anxious to support vs. the run. Athletic and has a very good combination of size and speed but lacks toughness and tackling ability.

ROUND 6 (183rd overall)

Tayo Fabuluge, OT, TCU

Ht: 6-6 3/8, Wt: 353, 40: 5.56, Arm: 34, Hand: 9 7/8

Played just two seasons of football (both at TCU) after bouncing back and forth between TCU and BYU over a 5-year period of turmoil that included working for a year while his mother was incarcerated for theft. When he was 5, father was deported for his role in a robbery scheme. Born in Nigeria; moved to U.S. as a toddler. Naturally big, strong and powerful and has the ability to dominate as a run blocker with sheer mass. Can be difficult to get around in pass protection but is not athletic or nifty and could use more work in the weightroom. Raw project who needs better technique.
