Kevin White headed to Chicago
With the No. 7 pick in the NFL Draft, the Chicago Bears decided that it was time to remove West Virginia WR Kevin White from the board. He was the second best wide receiver in this draft, and was a lock to be a Top 10 pick this year. He is headed to a Chicago Bears team that desperately needed help at wide receiver with WR Brandon Marshall being dealt to the Jets in the offseason.
Kevin White is a physical specimen at wide receiver at 6’3″ and 212 pounds. He can outrun you, push around the smaller defensive backs, and provide QB Jay Cutler with a sure-hands threat on the outside that will benefit WR Alshon Jeffery on the other side. White is not afraid to get hit, and he can make plays on the ball that most receivers cannot. This gives the Bears the ability to stretch the field and use the screen game if needed.

I really like this pick for the Bears, but I’m still worried about them having Jay Cutler as their starting quarterback. Will he be able to get Kevin White and Alshon Jefferey the ball downfield or will he face too much pocket pressure? For the Bears, that is a huge question going into this season, and one that has fans growing weary of his inconsistent play and pouty face. On that note, White should help relieve some of the pressure off of other offensive players and prove to be a threat to NFC North defenses.
The Packers, Vikings, and Lions all shifted in their seats a little when Commissioner Goodell announced the No. 7 pick, and they have been put on notice.
Do you like the Bears pick or would you have gone another direction? We would love to hear from you in the comments section below.
