What is Holton Hill's off field stuff?

If it's not some ridiculous horsefeathers, then he's a steal. But, the fact he's still available, probably says a lot.

Anyway, Tolliver or JC Jackson would be very nice. Double up on WR with Cribbs or Tate. Desmond Harrison would be a cool project for Hiestand.

Hill has multiple failed drug tests, and was suspended from the team.

Tolliver was a really highly recruited guy out of HS. He wasn't very good at LSU though despite having a ton of potential. He was also suspended for team rules violations (think he missed some meetings).

Jackson was kicked out of Florida after an armed robbery and home invasion.

Hill or Tolliver appear like they're at least worth a look then. Armed robbery though? Geez.

Ryan Nall, a RB from Oregon is the first UDFA signee.

Meeks went to the Jags.

Bears get DE Bunmi Rotimi, out of ODU. 86 on that list.

Also get Simmie Cobbs!

Cobbs and Toliver are both extremely nice gets.

Personal preference I guess. Not the fastest or best route runner, but he wins every 50/50 matchup. Probably underwhelmed enough at the combine that nobody really wanted to spend a pick on him. Some lesser WRs were drafted simply because they were more athletic, I think.

Uphill battle to make the team, and doesn't seem like a great fit, but hopefully he can show enough to get a shot somewhere in the league.

Rough cut at depth chart post-draft. All UDFAs asterisked. This is at 88, so they have 2 more open spots without any other cuts. DL, OT, RB, or S could use additional depth. OLB could use more quality depth, but there is no shortage of bodies.

Blue I see as locks or near-locks, which number 37. So the bubble guys are competing for 16 spots (plus PS spots).

Isn’t the expectation that Daniels will start at C moving Whitehair back to G?

Everything that's been reported says Daniels will compete at LG, and keep Whitehair at C.

Why not just draft a true guard then?

Because it's literally the exact same job minus snapping the ball?

I'll go with an A as well, it's been a long time since Bears' have gotten things correct regarding the offseason, so used to them screwing up, it's strange when it appears they know what they're doing.

I like Pace and think we've had a very good offseason, however I think the Kyle Fuller and Cam Meredith situations were pretty big unforced errors that make me hesitant to give him an A.

Overall I'm very happy with where the team is though. They are good enough to go as far as Mitch can take them (and I believe he's a frontline talent), the roster has a good amount of quality youth, and the salary cap situation looks quite healthy.

The Fuller situation worked out just fine
