Chicago Bears – More Rookie Mini-Camp Invites

Apparently I missed a few of the Bears rookie mini-camp invites. Here is a link to my original list and here are a few more players that will be attending this weekend:

QB Adam Kennedy, Arkansas St (6’5, 223) - Former back-up QB at Utah St, Kennedy played one year at Arkansas St and had a productive season. He has good size, an NFL caliber arm, good poise in the pocket and is an accurate passer who completed 69% of his passes last season for 2,341 yards but only 11 TDs and 6 INTs. Kennedy’s stats at Utah St in 2011 were eerily similar (69%, 11 TDs, 4 INTs). His TD/INT ratio is not great and he has a problem with staring down his receivers. Kennedy does have NFL potential though and would be a good practice squad stash.

CB Kyle Sebetic, Dayton (5’11, 194, 4,45) - 4-year starter at Dayton who led all FCS players with 15 PDs and also had 3 INTs in 2012. His numbers weren’t as impressive last season but he was named first team ALL-PFL. Sebetic’s tape shows an instinctive corner with good ball skills and a willingness to hit. He’s got NFL speed, but FCS Dayton is a long way from the NFL.

TE Andre McDonald, Kansas St (6’8, 278, 4.80) - Missed the 2012 season due to off-field issues and was projected to be a major part of the K-State offense in 2013, but only had 9 catches for 136 yards and a touchdown. McDonald is already an accomplished run blocker and has the size to be a weapon in the red zone. He has an elite size / speed ratio and with no clear #2 TE on the Bears roster, McDonald has a chance to stick if he can impress during the off-season.

OL Jasen Carlson, Buffalo (6’2, 309) - His 3rd season as a starter was cut short when he broke his leg during Buffalo’s 7th game last season. Carlson was still named 1st team all-MAC despite missing the last six games of the year. He has good strength and is a powerful run blocker.

DE Cameron Whigham, Mississippi (6’2, 258) – Undersized pass-rusher with modest speed (4.85) who started 8 games for Ole Miss and has 2.5 sacks and 4.5 TFLs.

TE Jeremiah Moeller, UTSA (6’2, 235, 4.72) - H-back prospect who is an excellent run blocker but didn’t contribute much on offense with only 9 catches for 62 yards.

G Richie Rebmann, McKendree (6’6, 285) - 4-year starter who was first team all-GLVC last year and only allowed 1 sack all season. Rebmann is facing a huge leap in competition, but he has NFL size.

    It would be nice to find a few diamonds in the rough. McDonald at 6’8. 278. He would be an awesome addition. If he shows the skills to go with that size. Like the next Gronk

    • David A Maupin

      Gronk doesn’t have that size by a long shot. And Gronk isn’t a well known blocker. I would be happy if he just becomes the next McDonald.

      • Mike Flannery

        Yeah McDonald looks intriguing right? He was picked as a breakout player in 2013 by a few CFB sites, but it never really happened. Worst case he’s a good blocker but he could be a Fauria type weapon in the red zone as well.

        • bearisity

          Yes thats kinda what i meant the big threat target in the red zone. Seriously wouldn’t it be nice having too many weapons that red zone TD’s feel automatic? Even stacking the big guys to make the push for the RB’s so there are no points left on the field.

  • jaime

    WHOA…. 6’8 278 runs 4.8 40 LeBron in pads that really is some SICK SIZE/SPEED RATIO….

    I just recently found out about this website while surfing the net looking for Bears Rookie Mini Camp Invitees. Your site was the one with any extensive list of names. Great job and keep up the great reporting.

      Thanks Adam!
