Every once and a while, you come across a prospect who could stand in front of you and, within seconds, you realize they have high potential written all over them. Yet, that same guy simply hasn’t shown all of what he can do on the field or at the NFL Combine.

Carl Granderson may be a risky pick, but is someone who could pay off big time. At 6-foot-5, 254 pounds, Granderson is a bit undersized as an edge rusher. But, he has tremendous length both in his arms and legs. The range his entire body can cover is almost mind-blowing.

His best season came in 2017 where he finished with 8.5 sacks and 16.0 total tackles for loss. He also picked off two passes, forced two fumbles, recovered one and scored a touchdown that year.

Last season, his production was down a bit as he only finished with 3.0 sacks and 7.5 total tackles for loss. He did return an interception for a touchdown.

Granderson is a sneaky quick player who can actually squeeze between blockers and get to the quarterback at times. He moves really well, whether it be his hand usage or even a signature spin move. He has the potential to be a great situational pass rusher, which is more of what the Bears are looking to pair with Mack and Leonard Floyd.
