3.66: Darius Robinson, EDGE | Mizzou

In a draft where the Chicago Bears and Ryan Poles once again leave with more picks than he came in with, Darius Robinson is in the realm of possibilities. Even here at pick No. 66, Robinson could be gone. He, along with Jackson Powers-Johnson, were two of the biggest risers at the Senior Bowl, and their draft stock will be proof of that.

Robinson will likely make his money in the league as a 5-tech, which bodes well for the Bears and their 4-3 defense. Montez Sweat on one side, Darius Robinson on the other. That would be a match made in heaven, and the Chicago Bears could do so in this draft.

The Bears lack pass-rushers outside of the recently acquired Montez Sweat, so grabbing one earlier in the draft is something the Bears could certainly benefit from. Other positions could be at play, but given how lackluster Eberflus' pass rush has been with the Bears, it could be time to go get a stud at the position.

They don't call him Darius 'STUD' Robinson for nothing. Well, they don't call him that at all, but I do. Oh, yeah! Robinson also got a J.J. Watt comparison. Not too shabby for the future Bear.
