The Chicago Bears have loaded up on offensive line depth and Baylor’s Blake Blackmar was the next in line to get an UDFA contract.

Baylor’s Blake Blackmar was the latest undrafted free agent signing for the Chicago Bears. The team chose not to draft offensive line depth. Blackmar is a big man, listed at 6′-5″ and weighing 326 pounds.

He started 51 career games at Baylor, which is tied for first all-time in team history. On a related note, Blackmar was able to stay healthy throughout his career, which is amazing for an offensive lineman who endures hit after hit. He was named to the 2018 All-Big 12 team by coaches.

Blackmar is a smart guy as he was named to the 2016, 2017, and 2018 Academic All-Big 12 first team. He can play both the right guard and left guard position, which is exactly the type of versatility that Ryan Pace looks for in offensive lineman. He has a decent shot at the making the Bears 53-man roster, but I would put Alex Bars slightly ahead of him.
