Second Round: Maxx Williams, TE, Minnesota

The Chicago Bears are in a transition, folks. If you thought Brandon Marshall was such a locker room disruption, what about Martellus Bennett? He’s had fights with SEVERAL teammates in his two seasons with the team. The difference, of course, is that Bennett made it to the Pro Bowl in 2014, while Marshall’s season was ended early due to an injury.

At the very least, if the Bears want to stay with Bennett, they could draft Maxx Williams and have success with  a two tight end system. It helps out on the line in running games, and gives the Bears another big target in the red zone.

At 6-foot-4 and 250 pounds, Williams has a good frame for his position. He has large soft hands, and is dangerous after the catch. He has springs for legs and can leap and hurdle over defenders.

Williams is a fierce competitor, something the Bears lacked over the past few seasons. Has a great work ethic and desire to always improve.

Williams also has the NFL bloodline. His father played for Minnesota and was a first round draft pick of the New York Giants in the 1989 draft. His grandfather played at Notre Dame and was chosen in the 1959 draft.

Williams has good body control and is able to make catches thrown away from his body.

Having Williams and Bennett together gives the Bears options. One thing they will do is help out with the running game, something head coach John Fox said the Bears would do more of in 2015.
