The only good pick of the day by the Chicago Bears 4th round selection Eddie Jackson Safety from Alabama
The Chicago Bears made one good decision in this draft and that was getting Eddie Jackson a safety and punt returner in a fourth round steal
This is by far, in my opinion, the best pick this whole draft by the Chicago Bears. Eddie Jackson was a really good safety and punt returner for Alabama. Alabama you know a real college program who plays actual real NFL level, talented players. That is obviously excluding Mitch but he has even barely played in college so I don’t know. All I wanted from this draft was defensive secondary help. Now we are staring down another fourth round safety that the Chicago Bears drafted. It seems like they cannot help themselves doing this. There are only a few constants in this world and the Bears drafting a fourth round safety is one of them.
Now, Eddie Jackson has great skills. He can be put in the box as a run stopper and he can actually cover somebody too. This NFL level of talent in the fourth round can only be there for two reasons off the field crap or injuries. Eddie Jackson Broke his leg during a punt return last season. That is going to be his big knock. Which if heals up right who cares. Eddie has two punt return touchdowns last season which is exactly what we need. We have nobody worth a crap to do this on the team right now. If he makes his way into the starting lineup then he might not get this job too but would be nice. If you haven’t seen him play here are some highlights.
