Chicago Bears: Round 6, Pick No. 205
Quintin Morris slowly has become a favorite of mine in the later rounds of the NFL Draft. Morris looked like a man amongst boys when playing in the MAC. He projects to be a move tight end (‘U’ tight end) at the NFL level due to his athletic ability and receiving ability. Morris was a total mismatch at the college level and he should be able to do that in the NFL as well.
Morris could sit behind Jimmy Graham if they would like to keep Graham and learn from one of the best in recent years. Then, the Bears could have both their ‘U’ and ‘Y’ tight ends of the future in Morris and Cole Kmet respectively.
Chicago Bears: Round 6, Pick No. 219
Darren Hall started his career at San Diego State as a safety before switching to cornerback. He had an outstanding 2020 season despite the shortened season racking up 37 tackles and three interceptions one of which was returned for a touchdown. Hall impressed greatly at the Senior Bowl to improve his stock by showing great coverage skills and ball skills. He looked great in one-on-ones.
The Bears need depth at cornerback and need to create more competition. The Bears do have two great starters in Kyle Fuller and Jaylon Johnson, but with Buster Skrine recently being released, they now have a hole at nickel corner. They have two young corners in Kindle Vildor and Duke Shelley who showed promise, but neither may be ready to start. Tre Roberson also will return from injury. Regardless, with Johnson’s injury concerns, they need to create more competition.
