Re-Grading Ryan Pace’s First Draft Class
7 of 9
Tayo Fabuluje, TCU T, 6th round, 183rd Overall
Fabuluje was a nice story coming out of TCU where fans and media who knew the backstory were cheering for him to succeed. Fabuluje’s father was deported and his mother was sentenced to jail time and he had to drop football and work three jobs to support himself and his sister. He eventually got back into his football and played well at TCU and the Bears drafted him in round six, knowing he was a project.
As sixth round projects go, Fabuluje was not ready to play as a rookie and saw very limited action. He eventually was suspended for a PED violation and the Bears chose to release him after his rookie season. Fabuluje was out of football in 2016, but is now a member of the Baltimore Brigade of the Arena Football League.
