Bears trade up, add Memphis receiver

Although they had used a second-round pick Friday to pluck prolific Memphis WR Anthony Miller, the Bears tacked on Georgia's leading receiver, Javon Wims, in the seventh round (224th overall). "They all have that". Nagy is a DE grad, as is Bears offensive assistant Brian Ginn, who played quarterback and was an assistant for the Blue Hens. "We do that [reach block] a lot at Iowa, so I have to be good at the outside zone and with reach blocks".

Fitts (6'4/263) made 23 starts in an injury-plagued three-year stint with the Utes, logging seven sacks and four forced fumbles as a redshirt freshman in 2015, then missing all but two games in 2016 with a broken foot, and missing four games last year due to various injuries. Feel free to use the P word - playoff - when setting expectations for 2018: Playoff contention awaits the Bears if they stay healthy and get some luck.

Pace is on a roll, and those are things we know.

"You've just got to be careful that you don't force these things", Pace said. "They haven't had a chance to investigate the kind of person he is and his intelligence". Nobody is put over anybody as far as status. And one interesting thing about him, you get the feedback from the National Football League folks.

The question now is can it catch up in time for this current regime to get to celebrate it? I believe I get a lot of respect around here because I didn't ask for any handouts. It's just helped me to work hard for everything that I get, nothing was given to me.

Here are our grades for every pick from the Bears in 2018. On Saturday, they picked Western Kentucky linebacker Joel Iyiegbuniwe in the fourth round, DE defensive tackle Bilal Nichols in the fifth round, Utah defensive end Kylie Fitts in the sixth round and Georgia wide receiver Javon Wims in the seventh round. In the aftermath of a 5-11 season he was criticized for pushing the reset button in firing John Fox and getting a contract extension. They haven't posted a winning record since 2012, Lovie Smith's final year. The Bears did, in fact, find a way to trade back into the second round and take Memphis wide receiver Anthony Miller.

And as much as everyone loves Roquan Smith, why not shoot for a top edge talent in the first round, especially given the lack of surefire prospects in that group?

Most experts liked the picks out of Halas Hall.

"I would say that it's just the way our board fell", Pace said. "These are guys that fell that way this year".
