Staying with defense, the Bears keep it in the secondary and draft one of the most impressive physical specimens in the class. We don’t even have a graphic for Sam Houston State, but Zyon McCollum is the type of player to put his school on the map.

McCollum stands 6-foot-2 and weighs 202 pounds. He has absolutely ridiculous length, with a 74-inch wingspan. This kid also possesses incredible speed, being able to hang with just about anybody.

Even though he’s a fourth-rounder, McCollum could come in and start next to Jaylon Johnson right away. His ability to go after the football and show his true ball-hawking skills makes him worthy of getting on the field right away.

One of the reasons he will slip a bit is due to his lack of functional athleticism. He could afford to loosen up a little bit and improve his overall reactionary athleticism. He is also not as good in man coverage, but with the Bears probably playing a lot of zone, this could work to his strengths.

Overall, McCollum is a worthy draft pick. He plays physically. He plays aggressively. His effort is exactly what Eberflus wants to see, and under his leadership, McCollum could become a big-time steal.
