NFL Draft: Bears take Iowa's Daniels early in second round

Posted April 30, 2018

There's just such a positive vibe around here and it really originates from Matt and it's infectious through the whole building. And he's a really intelligent guy. "Once I get a chance at the National Football League, I can come and prove myself". That's strictly off film. Wims left Belhaven for Hinds Junior College, earned a scholarship to Georgia, and helped lead the Bulldogs to the national title game past year with team highs of 45 catches, 720 yards and nine touchdowns. His 18 touchdowns previous year were the most in the country - not bad for a former walk-on.

Bears: Chicago added to its offensive line by adding Iowa's James Daniels at pick No. 39. He may or may not be on the field at the start of training-camp practices, or on opening day.

Daniels was the best center in this draft, although Pace said the Bears will start him out at left guard, and nearly no receivers in this draft have had more buzz around them than Miller.

Alexander totaled 19 tackles (13 solo), five passes defended and one interception in six games in 2017 (missed six games because of injury). And he finally earned a scholarship in 2015.

"I feel so good right now", Pace said.

He also was asked about being a walk-on at Memphis. He also comes with plenty of confidence.

"Honestly, I'm speechless. This is a moment that most people only dream of and to be given this opportunity, I'm extremely humbled and grateful", Nichols said. "But I have all the capabilities of a receiver". He has great ball skills and an attractive catch radius. I would call it a 10 out of 10. Many thought that the offseason would see general manager Howie Roseman having to move on from some talented players due to cap reasons, but that wasn't the case. That should make him an asset in the red zone. He's likely going to play for the Bears' special teams unit with Chris Tabor while providing depth at inside linebacker.

"Whenever you're watching Iowa offensive linemen, you know you're going to get a technique-proficient guy", NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock said. "They meant so much to me, motivated me to keep pursuing football and kept pushing me".

How about a sneak preview?

The former Hawkeyes had been forecast as possible first round picks, but both went undrafted throughout the first 32 selections of the 2018 draft at AT&T Stadium in the Dallas area on Thursday. "They haven't had a chance to investigate the kind of person he is and his intelligence". You've got to grind for it. 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. I can't wait to partner up with him and just make a whole lot of plays. "It's all paying off for me". He played outside and in the slot at Memphis. Otherwise, I wouldn't have been able to even play at Iowa. "That's his strength. We believe he has that".
