This weekend, the Chicago Bears held their annual rookie minicamp. It is the first rookie minicamp under new Bears' head coach Matt Nagy. Rookies and unsigned veterans have all tried to make an impression on Nagy and the rest of his coaching staff. There is one rookie who has stood out above the lot.
NBC Sports Chicago is reporting that LSU cornerback Kevin Toliver has been turning heads during the Bears' rookie minicamp. If Toliver continues to grow and learn the Bears' defense, he could play his way on the 53-man roster in late August.
If Kevin Toliver can latch on with the Bears, his addition could help fill a huge need the team had after the 2017 NFL season came to a close.
After another year finishing last in the NFC North, immediate help or depth was needed at every position on the Chicago Bears. During the offseason, the Bears tried to add a player at every spot that there was a need.
The Chicago Bears had glaring needs at wide receiver, outside linebacker, offensive guard, and in the secondary. The Bears did what they could to fill their holes with seven draft picks.
Depth was needed in the secondary after the Bears re-signed cornerback Kyle Fuller by matching an offer sheet (courtesy of the Chicago Tribune) given to him by the Green Bay Packers. The secondary was one of the positions that the Bears failed to address in the draft last April.
