Round 5, Pick 145: Darius Phillips, CB/Return Specialist, Western Michigan

The small school run continues. Phillips is electric with the ball on in his hands on returns. Coming to Chicago he’s already the best returner on the roster who could make a Pro Bowl immediately on that ability alone.

*That being said he’s also a very good corner having hauled in 12 interceptions over his three years at corner. He’ll probably have to transition to nickel at the NFL level. Good news for the Bears considering they lack a solid starting nickelback.*
