The Chicago Bears look to fill a major void at cornerback

Cornerback is another position the Bears should go after in free agency, trying to establish another starter next to Jaylon Johnson. Last year, this was one of the worst position groups on the entire roster in Chicago.

Johnson had far too much pressure on him to perform, with how bad Kindle Vildor and Artie Burns (later in the year) played. But, in the fifth round, the Bears will find a guy who might be able to challenge for a starting spot in Nebraska’s Cam Taylor-Britt.

To start, Taylor-Britt offers good size at six feet tall, weighing right around 205 pounds. He fits best in more of a zone coverage scheme, which is something the Bears will be playing more of under Eberflus.

The Nebraska standout functions very well when he’s able to play in a shallow zone, allowing him to be a willing helper in the run stop as well.

As a former high school quarterback, Taylor-Britt offers plenty of athleticism. He’s very well-rounded and has tremendous ball skills. Over the past three seasons, he’s logged 19 passes defensed, five interceptions, and even scored a touchdown.
