The Chicago Bears 2021 NFL draft has concluded. Work is not finished yet though. GM Ryan Pace and his staff are busy trying to add more help via undrafted free agency. Who will he end up getting? Follow along with our tracker here.

Charles Snowden, EDGE, Virginia

Snowden has a good chance to be the steal of undrafted free agency for the Bears. Has the size (6’7), length, and athleticism to play on Sundays. He has a lot of work to do from a mechanical standpoint as a pass rusher. Yet his six sacks and 10 tackles for a loss in eight games last year proves he can be a disruptive force off the edge. A nice grab for this team.

Thomas Schaffer, DL, Stanford

Schaffer was at the mercy of the pandemic like everybody else in the Pac-12. It’s a shame too because he played his best season in 2020 with three sacks and four tackles for a loss in just six games. At 6’7, 301 lbs he is a large human being with length and decent athleticism. He’s also an import from overseas, hailing from Austria.

Sam Kamara, DT, Stony Brook

Kamara will be viewed as undersized at 6’2, 275 lbs. So finding a niche for him on defense could be a challenge. His biggest strengths involve interior pass rush. He’s quick, explosive, and has the kind of burst needed to shoot gaps into the backfield. In just three games last year he managed two sacks and three tackles for a loss.

C.J. Marable, RB, Coastal Carolina

Marable was a consistent workhorse for Coastal Carolina the past two years. He had over 1,900 yards rushing during that span while also catching 69 passes (nice) for over 500 yards and scoring a total of 33 touchdowns. While not a physical specimen in any respects, he’s versatile and athletic enough to carve out a role on 3rd downs.

Caleb Johnson, LB, Houston Baptist

The kid is a bit of a pioneer being the first-ever from his school’s football program to reach the NFL. It’s not hard to see why. He was active a lot this past year with 104 tackles, six sacks, two fumble recoveries, and an interception. Johnson boasts good size, range, athleticism, and seems comfortable in space.

Dareuan Parker, OG, Mississippi State

A common theme the Chicago Bears have had with their approach this offseason? Adding offensive linemen who are strong. Parker fits that mold. He a mass of humanity at 6’4, 350 lbs and throws around a lot in the running game. His problems center around inconsistent fundamentals and a lack of discipline. He’ll be a fun project for Juan Castillo.

Gunnar Vogel, OL, Northwestern

The Bears know plenty about him being in such close proximity. Vogal passes the eye test from a size perspective at 6’6 with 34-inch arms. He’s a capable run blocker and doesn’t look lost in pass protection. Some have concerns about his anchor though. Not to mention his inconsistency at getting blocks on the second level.

Gage Cervenka, OL, Clemson

As has been the case with their other Chicago Bears offensive line additions, Cervenka is a powerful dude. He bulldozed defenders repeatedly in college and held his own in pass protection. His primary issue was inexperience. He didn’t switch to offensive line until 2016 after being a defensive lineman for years. Had he mastered better technique sooner, he probably would’ve been drafted.

Daniel Archibong, DT, Temple

From a physical perspective? Archibong is impressive. He’s 6’6, 295 lbs with long arms and huge hands. He has some power to him as well. Yet his production at Temple never really stood out. Part of the problem was his technique. He couldn’t maintain his balance and didn’t always use his hands properly. He’ll have to learn if he wants to unlock that potential.

Scooter Harrington, TE, Stanford

This is a pure project for the Bears. Harrington didn’t do much at Stanford, capping his college career with just eight catches for 58 yards and two touchdowns. He seems to have the capability as a blocker, boasts good size, and isn’t terrible in terms of pass-catching ability. For whatever reason, he never stood out. Chicago seems interested in seeing what he has to offer.

Dionte Ruffin, CB, Western Kentucky

The Bears are clearly focusing on finding help at the nickel cornerback position and Ruffin fits that profile. At 5’11 he isn’t overly big but shows the necessary quick feet and burst to make a living inside. While his INT numbers don’t stand out, he tends to get his hand on the ball more often than you think. A competitive guy who won’t back down from anybody.

Khalil McClain, WR, Troy

You can’t teach size and McClain has plenty of that at 6’4, 222 lbs. He isn’t afraid to use it, showing a nice tendency to win 50-50 balls and make tough contested catches. His overall lack of speed and lagging attention to detail on his route running are big reasons why he went undrafted. If the Bears can get him to dial in on those issues, he could be a surprise find. It’s worth noting he didn’t start playing wide receiver until 2019.
