Frey, 5’11″, 188 lbs, made 141 tackles, seven interceptions and two forced fumbles in four years at the University of Nevada.
He reeled in five interceptions this past season along with 37 tackles and a career high 21 pass deflections. He was named first-team all-WAC because of his success.
He showed durability by not missing a single game in his college career.
He ran a 4.46 40-yard dash, which is a decent time for a cornerback. He is still a little raw. He will likely find himself earning his way onto the team through special teams.
According to Sideline Scouting, these are Frey’s negatives: “Needs to show he can be physical when needed, he doesn’t bring that part of his game on a consistent basis… Lateral movement gives him trouble in coverage and is exposed easily.”
Here are some positives given to Frey by Sideline Scouting: “Has good length and size for the position, a taller corner… Has good straight line speed and moves well for his size, can turn and run and despite his height can do it with a relatively low pad level.”
Bears general manager Phil Emery is continuing to draft players with plenty of potential. Frey has lots of potential, but likely wasn’t tested enough in WAC Conference playing at Nevada.
He will be far down the depth chart behind starters Charles Tillman, Tim Jennings, D.J. Moore and reserves Kelvin Hayden and Jonathan Wilhite.
The secondary’s depth has improved this off-season.
The Bears have one selection remaining in the seventh round (220th overall). Lets see what Emery has up his sleeve in the final round.
