After the pain-staking loss of Kyle Fuller in the offseason, the Bears are in dire need of a corner to fill the gap. One solution the Bears offered during free agency was adding former Detroit Lions corner, Desmond Trufant, to the team.

However, I’m not sold on this move by the Bears. Trufant struggled last season as a starting corner. He allowed a 68.8 completion percentage and a 111.3 passer rating to opposing quarterbacks. That is on top of three touchdowns and 259 yards. His missed tackle percentage of 20 percent is alarming.

To piggyback on that, the young duo of Duke Shelley and Kindle Vildor hardly showed any flashes of readiness to take on a starting role in the Bears’ defense. Hence, a corner is needed to at least give the Bears options for a starter.

Projected best available cornerbacks for the third round (CBS player overall ranking). 

  • Kary Vincent Jr. — LSU (78)
  • Camryn Bynum — California (81)
  • Paulson Abedo — Stanford (86)
  • Tre Brown — Oklahoma (11)

Kary Vincent Jr. would be an excellent corner for the Bears to select in the third round. Coming from a school that developed Patrick Peterson and Tyrann Mathieu, he is explosive and energetic. The fact that he can play safety should be intriguing for the Bears too.
