Round 4:

106.) Chicago Bears – S Jaquiski Tartt, Samford

Small school prospect, but has been called an “SEC athlete” by multiple scouts. Tartt has ideal size (6’1 | 222) and hits like a missile in the run game. He is best suited for the strong safety position, but played plenty of snaps as a deep free safety and significantly improved his coverage skills last season. Tartt fits the profile Bears DC Vic Fangio looks for in that he can play both safety positions. He may have the versatility to play both safety roles, but his best skills are being a fierce hitter against the run and crushing receivers who try to go across the middle. The Bears defense needs some toughness and intimidation and Tartt could bring both at a position of need.
