Chicago Bears 4th Round Targets: CB Benjamin St-Juste, Minnesota
Though the Bears are better off at safety than they were just days ago, cornerback is still a concern. Sure, they have their starters locked down with Jaylon Johnson and Desmond Trufant. But, the issue with those two is whether or not they can stay on the field. Health is a concern, therefore the Bears still need to add some depth at corner.

One potential trade-up candidate that could help in that area is Minnesota’s Benjamin St-Juste. We’ve talked about him before in relation to the Bears, as he presents a potential steal for any team in the middle rounds.
St-Juste has elite size and length, which is the number one reason teams will be drawn to him. He stands 6-feet tall and has a tremendous wing span which he uses to his advantage often. St-Juste is great at pressing receivers on the outside, too. He’s a strong cornerback that establishes himself early on in the route and is excellent with interrupting route breaks.
As a sure tackler, St-Juste fits the mold for what the Bears defense needs to get back to doing: wrapping up. Last year, we saw too many missed tackles at all three levels, and that’s something St-Juste doesn’t do often. He finishes tackles at every level and doesn’t look the fool too often in that area.
The biggest thing he can work on are some of the basics, and that starts with just mental processing. St-Juste has to do a little better job at reading the quarterback and not getting overly aggressive.
