The Bears did very well in UDFA, which is probably due to the fact that they could invest more time in the backend of the draft after not having high picks.

WR Emmanual Hall
TE Dax Raymond
OG Alex Bars

All 3 of these guys in my opinion could make the team or be stashed on IR.

TE and OG are two positions that could stick with a good camp.

I think PS and IR spots are up for grabs. I don't see anyone beating out those 6 if 6 is the number.

We exchanged Ridley and Patterson for Bellamy and White.

Wims and Miller will be 2nd year players now.

Patterson is a scarier weapon on ST and offense by several orders of magnitude over Bellamy. We lose Bellamy on coverage teams, but frankly so what.  

Ridley can run routes where White couldn't. 

Patterson can provide take top off factor if Gabriel gets hurt.

Really a nice group of 6. One of best in NFL IMO.

I watched Dax Raymod.  

He is a big WR basically.  Can't block.  Gives good effort though.

Does okay in a crowd near LOS.  Open field he often kind of lightly pushes people or just runs around the field swinging his arms and doing nothing. Like he is lost.  Hey there's a guy right there and there. Pick closest one and hit him!  

He doesnt have a base. He doesnt gather his hips and deliver a blow.  Like a boxer who punches with just his arms. I saw safeties bully him more than once.  Safeties. 

I can see why he went undrafted. 

I will say he has a good running stride and has good hands and runs decent routes.  His lack of physicality is a major concern for me though.

Yeah,  Hall is gonna need to learn an NFL route tree and be more than just big and fast if he wants to play in this offense.

I'm lookin' at both Halls as possible replacements for Gabriel if he becomes a cap casualty.

It's likely we'll only keep 3 TEs and stash one on the PS for emergency which gives Nagy room to keep 6 WRs.

We had 6 WR and 4 TE for all of last year, so nothing is "likely"

I guess I'm doubtful of a rookie UDFA TE making the final cut as opposed to being signed to the PS.

I'd be less concerned with exposing a kid like Dax Raymond or another UDFA TE to waivers than I would one of our WR.  Or it could be a player at another position.  It's a preliminary opinion not gospel truth and so stated.
