Bears add Iowa center Daniels to shore up OL

Iowa offensive lineman James Daniels gets set to snap

The Bears need playmakers and with this pick, it is clear they covet speed, smarts and capability.

"Iggy from Western Kentucky", is how Pace referred to ILB Joel Iyiegbuniwe, the fourth-round pick (115th overall), who pronounces his name JO-el ee-yay-BOO-nee-way. "Or, if you're a guard, you better be able to play center or tackle".

"And the one thing that's been really great is just the collaboration between the scouts and the coaches on the vision of what we're looking for-endless conversations with Matt and the coordinators and position coaches so we can be on the same page with the players we add because that just increases the chances of success". In Justin Fuente and Paxton Lynch's previous year at Memphis, Miller caught 47 balls for 694 yards and five touchdowns. On the NFL Network, analyst and former NFL general manager Charley Casserly said that by the end of the 2018 season, Smith will be the league's Defensive Rookie of the Year. "Rugged, tough, [with] upside as a rusher".

Fitts, a 6-foot-4, 263-pound defensive end for the Utes, accumulated 68 tackles (37 solo), 14 tackles for a loss and 11.5 sacks in 25 games. "But we take the best available guy; that's just an added spice to it".

"I'm putting that on hold and just trying to play as long as I can (with) the gift that God gave me", he said. Taking Smith eighth overall was the obvious choice as they nabbed one of the surest things in the draft. But the Monsters of the Midway made some big moves created to get the most out of their prized quarterback and lift a struggling franchise. "Again, he's very athletic", Pace said. Love his get-off; extremely high character as well. "There's a lot ahead of us, but that's the challenging part". Pace likes that versatility and believes he has skills that will help him produce at either position.

5 hurt in explosion at Wisconsin refinery
The Duluth News Tribune reported at that time that the refinery, which is the only one in Wisconsin, had about 180 employees. Owned by Alberta-based Husky Energy, Wisconsin's only refinery produces gasoline, asphalt and other products.

"When we dug in on those, there's nothing that's significant", Pace said.

The Bears used the seventh pick in the second round (39th overall) to bolster the questionable interior of their offensive line by selecting Iowa center James Daniels.

"[He's] big and physical, he has outstanding hands, outstanding catch radius and body control", Pace said. "He was one of the guys that helped recruit me at Delaware".

The best way to "grade" a draft is to do it three years later.

They began the process of signing undrafted free agents, including Oregon State RB Ryan Nall, TCU S Nick Orr, Dubuque DB Michael Joseph, Pittsburgh P Ryan Winslow, and a pair of Notre Dame players, DE Andrew Trumbetti and LB Nyles Morgan.
