Bears Insider breaks down first round draft pick

Smith had 146 solo tackles in three seasons at UGA. "Although Daniels was not a decorated collegiate, he offers Rodney Hudson-level upside as an exceptionally athletic mover with a technically-sound game and long arms for a center (33 ¾").

Emory Hunt of Football Gameplan has said that he believes Lamar Jackson is the most talented player in the 2018 NFL Draft. "I would say Eddie, to give our college scouts a lot of credit and the research that went into him". They are getting an electric player. As insane as the picks got, however, the Bears ended up looking at the picks many figured they'd make - either Smith or Virginia Tech linebacker Tremaine Edmunds.

The Chicago Bears pick eighth overall in the first round and 39th overall in the second round.

And as Georgia fans and players are fond of saying, Georgia isn't done yet. The 6-5, 312-pound Ragnow was a three-year starter for the Razorbacks. They do have two fourth-rounders and one each in the fifth, sixth and seventh rounds for Saturday's final day of the draft.

"I think it's a wrong picture to paint that the defense was great and the rest of the team wasn't", Fangio said in January. "I really just enjoyed the entire season with my guys".

"When I got the call from Tennessee, it was one of the greatest moments of my life next to the national championships that I won". Offensive lineman Isaiah Wynn (23rd overall) and running back Sony Michel (31st overall) were both selected by the New England Patriots.

"I feel like I can make a tremendous impact on a defense, just with my playmaking ability, my leadership qualities and everything that I possess as a football player on and off the field", Smith said at the NFL Combine in February. In Chicago's 17-3 victory over the Carolina Panthers on October 22, Jackson returned a fumble recovery 75 yards and an interception 76 yards for touchdowns. Bill Belichick, who has coached the Patriots to eight Super Bowls and to five Super Bowl titles, attended Georgia's pro day last month. Alabama also had four first-round picks in the 2011, 2012 and 2017 drafts.
