Chicago Bears pick a TE from a DII school Ashland college with the 45th pick Adam Shaheen
The Chicago Bears trade back in the third round with the Cardinals to select a TE Adam Shaheen from a DII school called Ashland College
The Bears added a second player to their 2017 draft class Friday night, using a second-round selection on Ashland tight end Adam Shaheen.
Shaheen is a massive man — 6-foot-6, 278 pounds — with a basketball background. His 16 touchdown catches last season set a Division II single-season record for tight ends and offered proof of his red zone potential.
After playing in the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference, Shaheen will likely need time to adapt to the speed and competition in the NFL.
I cannot even wrap my brain around this pick. A DII college player from a college I’ve never heard of or seen. Please, I hope someone shows me some stats on how many DII college players actually pan out in the pros. Obviously nothing against Adam Shaheen but who was going to take this guy before the Bears. I think it’s fair to say that the Bears at this point are just making fools of us.
The glaring holes on defense that are just being blatantly overlooked make no sense to me. The Chicago Bears still haven’t drafted the best safety or corner available and now it’s def too late. NFL comparable is to Vance McDonald. Bottom Line is he is a huge tight end who can’t block. Here are some of his highlights.
