45. Daniel Brown
The Chicago Bears brought Daniel Brown in late into the 2016 season. Brown got to see the field a bit but did not make a huge impact. In 2017, he served as the backup to Zach Miller. When Miller got hurt against New Orleans, Brown began to see the field some.
Still, he had just 13 receptions for 129 yards. Brown is going to be entering year three with the Chicago Bears competing to be the teams fourth tight end. He should have a decent shot, as he profiles as a decent backup to Trey Burton. If anything were to happen, he would be the best equipped to take on that role.
Daniel Brown is not necessarily a slot wide receiver. He is not necessarily a tight end either though. Matt Nagy tends to favor versatility, and the versatility that Brown brings to move around to a couple of spots should catch his eye.
In a best-case scenario, Brown makes the team as a fourth tight end and does not see the field much. However, there is a world where Brown is relied to make a real impact on offense as well.
