Similarly to tight ends and wide receivers, the defensive backs are paired together. The Chicago Bears met with 12 defensive backs, bringing five into Chicago. The players they brought in are Iman Marshall, Mark Fields, Ka’Dar Hollman, Jimmy Moreland, and Ugo Amadi.
Like pass catcher, it is worth noting that of the safeties they met with, a lot of them can fill into a nickel or dime role, such as Amadi. Fields and Moreland are slot players in the NFL, and Mike Edwards, Sheldrick Redwine, and Amani Hooker are safeties they have met with who can play the slot in the NFL.
Based on their pre-draft meetings, it would appear that they have more faith in Haha Clinton-Dix being a longterm starter than Buster Skrine. Either that or they know that with their small number of picks at late draft slots that they can address the slot with eyes on safety next year.
Of course, they could draft one of these safeties with eyes on them at safety as well, but the versatility in each prospect is worth keeping an eye on. It is clear that this is something they are valuing in their defensive backs this year.
