The 2021 NFL Draft is officially over for the Chicago Bears and it’s time to start looking towards mini camps and training camps this summer. The Bears absolutely had a great draft despite trading up to get their top two selections.

Getting Justin Fields and Teven Jenkins were huge picks as those were arguably the biggest positions of need. Looking at the rest of their draft, I personally love it and think they had one of the best drafts of any team in the NFL.

Immediately following the draft, players who were not selected are free to sign with any team of their choosing and that is exactly what I’ll be looking at today. The Chicago Bears made their fair share of solid signings but there’s still plenty of guys to keep an eye on as this summer progresses.

Some of these guys would make for some fantastic depth, for a Chicago Bears team that doesn’t have a lot of holes

Cade Johnson, WR

Cade Johnson going undrafted was quite a surprise to me, I thought for sure he would go on Day 3 and I must admit, he was one of my top Day 3 guys. To be fair, the Bears did draft who was possibly my favorite Day 3 wide receiver in Dazz Newsome so I can’t complain too much.

Johnson was a very productive slot weapon during his time at South Dakota State. He ended up signing with Seattle after the draft and looks to fight for a spot on that team. Nonetheless, Johnson is someone Bears fans should keep an eye on.

Josh Imatorbhebhe, WR

The WR position was somewhat of a need going into next season and to their credit, the Bears addressed it through the draft and free agency. After his vertical leap went viral, the former Illinois standout was considered a nice player to bring in post-draft.

Josh Imatorbhebhe ended up signing with the Jaguars but I would certainly keep an eye on him. Despite the Bears bringing in new WRs, Imatorbhebhe would provide Chicago something they don’t really have which is an athletic freak, also capable of high pointing the ball.

Dylan Moses, LB

Dylan Moses was possibly the biggest surprise to me, in terms of players going undrafted. Moses has an interesting combination of strength, speed, and instincts at the LB position which is always great. He isn’t necessarily elite at anything which may be a knock on him.

Having the Alabama pedigree works in his favor though, not only practicing against NFL-caliber players but playing against them on Saturdays as well. Moses also ended up signing with the Jaguars but could be a complementary piece in a two-LB scheme like Chicago.

Trill Williams, S

The Bears still haven’t quite filled the void of losing Adrian Amos though they have some solid depth at the position currently. Trill Williams was a standout at Syracuse who ended up signing with the Saints.

I think Williams has some real talent and could be a productive piece to a Bears defense. Gipson isn’t going to be there forever and the Bears will eventually have to find someone to go along with Eddie Jackson, Williams could be that guy.
