Pace also talked about Bullard's "get off," and sees advantages that the rookie can add to the defense by adding pressure off the edge. Currently, Eddie Goldman is set to start at nose tackle with Akiem Hicks starting at defensive end, so the rookie is expected to be a rotational player in sub packages, from which the team operated about 60 percent of their defensive snaps last year. As a senior, Bullard showed his big-play ability, as he posted 6.5 sacks along with 17.5 tackles for loss as a three-technique, and was a semifinalist for the Chuck Bednarik Award.
Brian Hoyer will sign a one-year deal with the Chicago Bears .
Hoyer was waiting out the 2016 NFL Draft before deciding on his fifth NFL destination, and he wasted no time by agreeing to terms with the Bears on Saturday evening. After starting 11 games in Houston last season, the 30-year-old will serve as a backup to Jay Cutler in 2016.
The Chicago Bears selected Braverman in the seventh round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 230th overall.
Braverman is a long shot to stick in the NFL due to his lack of size and mediocre workout numbers, but his tape at Western Michigan was quite impressive, and his production was excellent. If a late-round long shot must be singled out for his potential to succeed in the NFL despite long odds, Braverman seems like as fine of a bet as anyone.
The Chicago Bears selected DeAndre Houston-Carson in the sixth round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 185th overall.
Houston-Carson struggled at the Combine, posting numbers well below the average for all of the vertical, broad jump, and agility drills. He was very effective at William & Mary, however, so he should get a real shot at least as a strong safety.
The Chicago Bears selected Deiondre' Hall in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 127th overall.
Hall is a huge corner with an enormous reach (34 and 3/8-inch arms), and his combination of explosiveness (127-inch broad jump) and quickness (4.06-second 20-yard shuttle) give him a chance to stick as an outside NFL corner despite below average speed (4.68-second 40-yard dash).
