NFL Draft: 5 Late Round CBs Chicago Bears have interest in
Ka’Dar Hollman is another player who did not get an invite to the combine, but his Pro Day had the Chicago Bears intrigued enough to bring him in for a private workout.
Hollman is bigger than some of the other options they have brought in, and while he played on the outside at Toledo, some of the reason he is flying so far under the radar could be because he could project better in the slot.
Hollman struggled in man coverage, but was instinctive and strong against the run, receiving high grades from Pro Football Focus in that area. Facing less phsyically imposing receivers, and seeing more physical action near the line of scrimmage may be the best option for his future.
His size and run defense is intriguing in the slot, but the projection of it will have him falling into the seventh round or UDFA range like some of the smaller peers with better tape.
