Grading all seven picks from the Bears in the 2018 NFL Draft

Adjust Comment Print

The Bears finished up a busy 2018 NFL Draft by taking outside linebackers Joel Iyiegbuniwe and Kylie Fitts, defensive lineman Bilal Nichols, and wide receiver Javon Wims.

Daniels' Raiders and Trubisky's Mentor Cardinals met in the OHSAA playoffs when both were in high school.

"It's actually amusing. My sophomore year in high school, I'm from Warren, Ohio, he was a senior at Mentor High School. I think he can play all three interior offensive line positions, but being a center for me gives him more value". "He had like 500 total yards against us and we lost, 42-35".

According to NBC Sports Chicago via NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Chicago Bears were in talks with an undisclosed team to find a way back into the latter part first round of the NFL Draft. The Bears selected Iowa's James Daniels.

"I know we were aggressive", Pace said Saturday night after the draft concluded.

"I've played inside and outside", he said. It was just fantastic.

They fired John Fox and replaced him with the offensive-minded Matt Nagy, a protégé of Andy Reid.

Behind the scenes, he made numerous trips overseas to meet foreign political and security leaders, especially in the Middle East. Pompeo, a former Army officer who was a Republican congressman, is regarded as a Trump loyalist with hawkish world views.

"He's a fun guy to watch on tape because of how he plays, " Pace said. "That's his strength. We believe he has that". In 2015, he became one of the few Iowa offensive linemen to start as a first-year freshman when he opened twice at left guard, including the Rose Bowl.

"He's undersized, so in pass protection, the way he uses his hands and plays with leverage, he has to do that, or he wouldn't be in the NFL", Daniels said of Kelce. "We're all on the same page on this one and we're excited to add him".

Daniels started 11 games at center for Iowa as a sophomore in 2016. Daniels underwent surgery to fix a partially torn meniscus following the 2015 season. He was named third team All-Big Ten.

The Bears have been widely praised for the improvements they've made this offseason, first in free agency and now in the draft. "In 2012, if you would have asked six years ago that I'd be blocking for him, I would say you're lying". It's a business decision.

Daniels is only 20 - he turns 21 in September. He's very quick off the ball. It's a guy that Harry was really passionate about, too. But I don't feel like we're ever there. "People have got to work for everything they've got". He has the ability to kinda recover and maintain his balance.

Hiestand, a renowned offensive line coach, certainly had a say in Daniels being projected as an National Football League guard, at least in this offense. Pace landed more established, NFL-ready players this time.
