The 2015 NFL Draft came to a close in Chicago on Saturday, but teams will continue to add talented prospects who didn’t hear their name called during the three-day festivities for weeks to come.
Though they face uphill battles, there are plenty of undrafted players who have excelled in the NFL.
Within 24 hours following the draft, the Chicago Bears have signed 15 UDFAs (undrafted...
The Chicago Bears already have Matt Forte at the running back position; however, behind him it's an open competition and the team believes fourth round pick Jeremy Langford could be an immediate contributor.
"Langford's a guy our running backs coach Stan Drayton liked a lot, obviously with (Drayton) at Ohio State (Langford) had played against him so he was very familiar with...

Kevin White, 22 years old at...
Not every team can go from worst to first in the limit of one offseason. More often they should hope for incremental improvement across the roster in terms of talent and depth. If they do that, winning will come eventually
The Chicago Bears hoped for that when they attacked free agency and the NFL draft over the past few month and now, barring a few moves yet to be made have...
While fans are cheering or booing their teams’ picks, one thing is certain—there is another part of the draft we don’t see.
For instance, in Chicago, fans, media, and the Bears alike are celebrating the selection of wide receiver Kevin White at No. 7 overall.

One of the most underrated post draft activities is the chase for undrafted free agents. Teams can find diamonds in the rough by combing though their draft boards and finding out who is left.

Don’t let anybody fool you. As much fun as the glitz and glamour of the early rounds in the NFL draft can be, the best teams in the league are the ones able to find the hidden gems of each college class, most often in undrafted free agency.
Ask the New England Patriots what they would’ve done without Super Bowl hero Malcolm Butler.
Chicago Bears GM Ryan Pace knows all of this...
Jeremy Langford didn’t enter the NFL Draft with the hype of some of the other running backs, like Todd Gurley or Melvin Gordon, but he was a fantastic rusher for Michigan State during his career. He ran for 2,944 yards and 40 touchdowns over the last two seasons, and this fall he will be behind star back Matt Forte as a member of the Chicago Bears.
After being picked, Langford...
Day 1 of the NFL Draft in Chicago went hard in the paint and with warmer weather Day 2 crushed. NFL Draft Fans were coming loud and proud with their sports fandom and their jerseys game was some of the best I’ve ever seen.

When the Chicago Bears brought Ryan Pace in to be their general manager, many weren’t sure what to think. Obviously, the last signing of a GM didn’t work out at all, as Phil Emery only lasted three years in his first stint as the main decision-maker in the organization.
However, Pace brought a different kind of energy with him, and a different...
Any hardcore Bears fan will love this tailgate mobile for football season, even though it might be a little pricey. However, it does have all of the features you want when it comes to tailgating. You have TVs, speakers inside and outside (iPod compatible), AstroTurf carpet, and plenty of room to fit the whole crew to get hammered before the game while freezing your balls off because...

The Chicago Bears selected Florida State defensive tackle Eddie Goldman with the 39th overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft. Goldman will fill a major need for the Bears’ on the defensive side of the football, and will likely see plenty of playing time during his rookie season.
At 6-foot-4 and 320 pounds, he is going to be a huge force to be reckoned...
According to Chicago Bears Radio Network Sideline Reporter Zach Zaidman, the Bears have signed safety Malcolm Bronson to a two-year deal.
Safety is one of the Bears’ many priorities going into the NFL Draft despite signing veteran Antrel Rolle in free agency.
Bronson was on the 2013 Kansas City Chiefs practice squad in 2013 as an undrafted free agent out of McNeese St.
Looking to add a deep threat to their passing attack, the Chicago Bears tabbed former West Virginia WR Kevin White with the seventh pick of the NFL Draft’s first round Thursday night. White, among the prospects on hand for the festivities, received a thunderous ovation from the partisan Bears crowd at Chicago’s Roosevelt Auditorium. Here’s the scouting report from The [...]

Chicago Bears’ quarterback Jay Cutler is starting his seventh season in the Windy City. He will be doing so under his fifth offensive coordinator during that span.
When reminded by reporters of this tidbit of information earlier this week, Cutler couldn’t even remember the total amount of offensive coordinators he’s played under since being traded from Denver in 2009.
As draft day fast approaches, one final look at a possible Chicago Bears mock draft: First Round, Kevin White, WR, West Virginia…Bears hope for Amari Cooper, but White is a nice consolation prize. Blew it up last season, demonstrating a great size/speed combination and the ability to track the deep ball. Still developing route runner who has his best football [...]
Chicago Bears head coach John Fox will get his first opportunity to look at his new team “on the grass” this week when the Bears hold a voluntary mini-camp Tuesday through Thursday.
