Remaining player for Chicago Bears on Day 2: Coby Bryant (CB, Cincinnati)

The final player on this list: Coby Bryant.

Bryant was the CB2 behind Sauce Gardner, and while he was the secondary character for this team’s secondary, Coby Bryant is an impressive corner.

The Cincy corner stands 6-foot-1 and weighs 193-pounds, which makes him one of the longer corners. Along with that Bryant ran a 4.54 40-yard dash, which is plenty fast enough to go up against NFL receivers.

As a four-year starter with the Bearcats, Bryant accumulated ten total interceptions, and something that makes Coby Bryant an impressive prospect is his ability to return loose balls to the end zone. In his four years as a starter, Bryant had 11 touchdowns.

And on top of that, Coby Bryant received the 2021 Jim Thorpe Award, which is awarded to the top defensive back in college football. Not only did he beat out his standout teammate, Sauce Gardner, but he beat out the entirety of college football defensive backs.

Considering the need for secondary help on the Chicago Bears, being able to get Coby Bryant with pick No. 48 after getting Christian Watson with pick No. 39 would be perfect.
