The Chicago Bears could use an edge rusher like BJ Ojulari. Ojulari is a speed rusher, who uses his bend and quick feet to get around the edge. The questions with Ojulari revolve around how much he can hold up against the run, and whether he is just a designated pass rusher or a three-down player.

Beyond that, Ojulari is dealing with a hamstring injury and did not do much in the offseason before the draft. This may work out for the Chicago Bears, though. They can see Ojulari fall to them.

Beyond that, Ojulari is a nice fit. Sure, he is not great against the run, but the Bears added run-stoppers in Rasheem Green and DeMarcus Walker. The pass rushers do not shake free in free agency as often, so the Bears could be thinking that adding a run stuffer in free agency could be complimented well with a pass rusher in the draft.

Beyond that, Ojulari is not flat-out uninterested in the run, so there is something to see for upside. Keep an eye on how far he falls because a healthy offseason could have had him taken already.
