Andrew Booth Jr. is worth the Chicago Bears trading up for


School: Clemson

Height: 6’2”

Weight: 200 lbs

Andrew Booth is a very interesting name to watch for the Bears, because he may slip a bit in the draft. He isn’t going to be doing any on-field drills at the Combine because he injured his quad recently. It’s unclear whether or not Booth will even be able to take part in Clemson’s Pro Day on March 17, so his draft stock could absolutely take a bit of a hit.

Now, he’s still a lock for the first round according to many mocks. But, the Bears may be able to trade up without giving up as much as they’d have to if Booth had worked out at the Combine. Of course, Booth will still be doing interviews.

The great thing about Booth, above all his positive traits, is that he is exceptionally gifted in terms of footwork and react ability. He’s been compared to the early Janoris Jenkins; a guy who can maneuver very well with his feet and hips and also goes after the football. He’s a ball hawk, so to speak.

Booth has good size and play strength, as well as those highly-coveted long arms that defensive coordinators love their cornerbacks to have. Booth could slip to the back of the first, and possibly even the first few picks of the second.
