Bears Draft Kutztown OL Jordan Morgan In 5th Round

By Chris Emma–

(CBS) The Bears used their final available draft pick Saturday afternoon to select offensive lineman Jordan Morgan out of Division II Kutztown (Pennsylvania) with their fifth-round pick.

A 6-foot-3, 309-pound lineman, Morgan played for the North team at the Senior Bowl in January that was coached by the Bears’ staff. He’s the only player Chicago has selected from the game.

Morgan can play either guard or tackle at the next level. He won the Gene Upshaw Award as the nation’s top Division-II lineman.

With the selection of Morgan, the Bears have exhausted all of their picks for this 2017 NFL Draft. Barring a trade, they’re done.

The Bears have selected quarterback Mitchell Trubisky (1-2), tight end Adam Shaheen (2-45), safety Eddie Jackson (4-112), running back Tarik Cohen (4-119) and now Morgan with the 147th pick.
