Cornerback Corey Graham led the defense with 10 tackles at Detroit, drawing praise from Smith.
He could be used as a nickelback for this team.
He might force the coaching staff to consider ways to keep him on the field even with Nathan Vasher expected back.
”There’s always room for good football players to play,” Smith said. ”We’ll find a spot. We tell our entire team it’s their job to prove that we need to play them, and we’ll find a way to play them.”
The Bears always seem to draft good players in the late rounds of the draft.
Look at Mark Anderson (5th), Trumaine McBride (7th), Kellen Davis (7th) , Matt Forte (3rd) , Alex Brown (4th), Lance Briggs (3rd), Kyle Orton (4th) and Kevin Payne (5th).
That is pretty impressive.
