Roquan Smith's Bears introduction could be the start of something big

Thursday night during the first round of the National Football League draft, the Chicago Bears selected Roquan Smith with the 8th overall pick, but despite being drafted to the Bears, his mother has no plans to drop her fandom for the Atlanta Falcons. Only 20 years old, Daniels is the highest-ceiling center prospect in this draft class and, if needed, could probably make a seamless transition to guard, although this pick nearly certainly means 2016 second-rounder Cody Whitehair will move to guard.

The Bears swapped fourth-round selections with the Los Angeles Rams by sending their sixth-round pick to the Rams to move up five places to get Jackson, the only defensive player drafted by Chicago past year.

Smith's scenario is entirely different.

The Butkus Award victor as college football's best linebacker in 2017, Smith has the speed to wreak havoc on opponents. Smith's sideline-to-sideline speed makes him excellent against the run.

Smith's first impression was a good one. He said they now have it with Smith. "I'm just here for that". "And coach Vic is an awesome defensive coordinator". They also gave Trubisky some new targets, most notably signing former Pro Bowl receiver Allen Robinson. Later, Fangio coached Ray Lewis and Terrell Suggs in Baltimore and Patrick Willis and NaVorro Bowman in San Francisco.

Smith majored in economics at Georgia because he wanted to be challenged.
