Chicago Bears Draft Scout: Duke Ejiofor
A fit for Chicago Bears
The Chicago Bears are one team that would have loved to see what Duke Ejiofor could have brought at the combine. His change of direction skills would have been put to the test, and the team could have run him through coverage drills. He had moments in coverage at Wake Forest, but not nearly enough to remain comfortable in what he could bring.

Still, he is about the size of Pernell McPhee, and as a run stuffer opposite of Leonard Floyd, the fit can work. The Bears have a noted history of trusting players with an injury and let Eddie Jackson, an older prospect with injury questions fall into the fourth round for them. It helped them get a rookie starter, and there are chances Duke Ejiofor is the 2017 version of that for the Chicago Bears. The Bears were able to get their hands on his medicals during the combine. If they like what they saw they can bring him in for a Pro Day and try to see how great his change of direction ability is and go from there.
