Round 4, Pick 126

Looking at the Bears’ back field, and what Benny Snell could bring to the equation, it seems like the perfect marriage. Let’s take a quick look at what the Bears would boast in that trio.

More from Da Windy City

Tarik Cohen is a smaller, shifty back with electric, game-breaking qualities. We know how good he is lining up all over the field. It’s pretty simple. He’s a threat in the open field, no matter how he gets the ball.

Mike Davis is the best of both worlds. He has adequate speed, can catch the ball out of the back field, but is also strong between the tackles and around the goal line.

Now, on to Snell. At 5-foot-10, 224 pounds, Snell would be the surefire short yardage back for the Bears. The kid is a banger, and rarely loses yardage. Snell was a three-year starter at Kentucky and rushed for over 1,000 yards every season. He totaled 3,873 yards and 48 touchdowns on the ground over those three seasons.

Although Snell is a bigger back, he knows what he needs to do to create extra yardage without having that game-busting speed. Snell’s instincts are strong. He is a patient back who waits for his blocks to develop, while also showing solid footwork, being able to make the first man miss.

Adding Snell in the fourth round would give the Bears a fantastic three-headed monster in the back field. Every box would be checked. They’d have a guy for whatever situation presented itself.
