The Chicago Bears are loading up at the tight end position. Dax Raymond was an extremely productive tight end for the Aggies.

It’s hard to believe that Dax Raymond went undrafted, but the Chicago Bears moved quickly on him after the draft was over. Listed at 6′-5″ and weighing 250 pounds, Raymond has a real shot at making this Bears roster.

He was extremely productive in his three seasons at Utah State accumulating 873 receiving yards on 72 receptions and three touchdowns. He also served as a special teams player, so he provides several options for the Bears.

Raymond ran a 4.73 40-yard dash at the NFL Scouting Combine and ran a three-cone drill time of 7.11 seconds. For comparison’s sake on how quickly he can change direction, former Penn State running Miles Sanders ran the same drill with a time of 6.89 seconds, which was tops for the position.

Raymond fits Matt Nagy’s style of offense and could provide solid depth at the tight end position.
