9. Darrian Beavers, LB, Cincinnati

Another thing we saw in the pre-draft activity is that the Chicago Bears would not hate adding a linebacker into the mix. They worked out Christian Harris and Brian Asamoah, but both of them were drafted in the third round.

Still, it shows that the Bears were gauging if either would either be worthy of the third-round pick or if there was any chance that either would fall to pick 148. While that did not happen in either account, there is one player that is falling.

Darrian Beavers is a thumper from that respected Cincy defense that has already seen multiple players get drafted. Beavers has questions in coverage, and change of direction but answered a lot of them in his athletic testing.

Still, it was not enough to get him drafted in the first two days. Next to Roquan Smith, the issue would be less common, and he would be better off as a SAM linebacker who gets downhill anyways. The fit makes sense and the value would be there, so the fans may have to prepare for more defense.
