#3-James Daniels (OG, Second Round, No. 39)
James Daniels was one of the youngest players drafted in 2018 and when he was selected he was seen as a developmental project that would eventually become an everyday starter.
Well, Daniels became a starter by the fourth week of the regular season and has been a workhorse since. A two-year starter at the University of Iowa, Daniels was regarded as a top 10 offensive lineman talent. That was assuming he’d play center in the NFL. With Chicago, Daniels plays left guard and with him in the lineup, the Bears possess one of the best interior O-lines in all of football.
The 21-year-old still has a lot of room to grow and will have ample opportunity to do such. Ryan Pace has to feel solace that he may have chosen the second-best lineman in the draft and he nabbed him in the second round.
