4. Mike Weber, Running Back, Ohio State

An under-the-radar player that isn’t being talked about much by Bears fans, Mike Weber is a name know. After being a part of Ohio State’s offense since 2016, he’s certainly shown that he can be successful in the right offense in the NFL.

Weber is interesting because he tends to offer a little bit of everything. His vision, receiving skills, and elusiveness are some of the best in this class. Another thing to really like about Weber is that he always seems to be hungry for more. All throughout 2018, it was clear that he brought an aggressive mentality to the table.

While Weber has some great qualities to his game, he’s not the fastest guy on the field. Although this won’t negatively affect his draft stock much, Weber isn’t one who is going to get into the open field and then turn on the jets. He does, however, show the ability to be a major threat in space with the elusiveness that he showcases.

At this point, Weber is someone who can be successful on the Bears because he’d be splitting time as with Tarik Cohen and Mike Davis. Additionally, 5.3 yards per reception in 2018, so the potential for him to catch a few passes a game makes him an interesting candidate to be drafted by the Bears on day three.

At this point, Weber is someone who’ll be available in the fourth round. He has all the skills needed to be an ideal fit in the Bears offense. His ability to be a North-South runner and a guy who can run down the sideline is what will allow him to make a name for himself at the next level.
