(CBS) The Bears on Saturday afternoon added two more picks to their 2017 draft class, which now includes four players.
After a run of defense in the fourth round, the Bears moved up to the 112th pick and selected Eddie Jackson, a safety out of Alabama. In doing so, they traded a fourth-rounder (No. 117) and sixth-rounder (No. 197) to the Rams.
With pick No. 119, the Bears drafted running back Tarik Cohen out of North Carolina A&T, adding depth and versatility to their offense.
Jackson recorded six interceptions in 2015 with the Crimson Tide defense. He also returned two punts for a touchdown in 2016 but suffered a broken leg on a return in October, ending his season.
A 5-foot-6 back, Cohen is nicknamed “The Human Joystick.” He’s the MEAC’s all-time leading rusher.
The Bears moved up a slot and selected quarterback Mitchell Trubisky with the No. 2 pick on Thursday, then traded back to the 45th pick in Friday’s second round and selected tight end Adam Shaheen out of Ashland University.
Day 3 brings one more pick for the Bears — a fifth-round pick at No. 147 overall.
