It wasn’t all that long ago that the Bears’ tight end situation looked a lot like their kicker tryouts a couple of years ago. But, the Bears no longer have 11 tight ends on the roster and it’s truly Cole Kmet and Jimmy Graham’s show, as it should be.

The Bears could use a developmental third tight end, though, and with their last pick in this draft they get him. Bowling Green’s Quintin Morris is a pretty versatile player at the tight end position.

He is not a bigger, taller type. But, at 6-foot-2, he moves well and he can be an asset in run blocking as well. At Bowling Green, Morris lined up in different areas. He has experience as an in-line blocker or even spread out as well.

Over the last three seasons, Morris was one of the top options in his college offense and caught a total of 117 passes for nearly 1,500 yards and 11 touchdowns. Because of his ability to run excellent routes, Morris will find time on the field no matter where he lands in the draft. But, the fact that he can do multiple things well and help out as a blocker will really assist a team like the Bears who want to establish themselves as a run-first team going forward.

This would be one heck of a draft for Pace, and his future would be mortgaged. If Lance panned out, everything would be just fine. All that matters, in the end, is that the Bears got their quarterback right.
