The Chicago Bears neglected key positions such as offensive line, defensive tackle, and linebacker, instead selecting two cornerbacks with their final two picks of the 2012 NFL Draft. The Bears could certainly use some shoring up in that department, with 2011 contributors Corey Graham and Zachary Bowman no longer with the team.

the sixth round, the Bears tabbed Isaiah Frey, a 6-0, 183 corner who played in every game in his four seasons as a member of the Nevada Wolf Pack. Frey possesses good size, smooth change of direction skills, and can track the ball. He was named first-team All-WAC, leading the team with five interceptions and 21 passes defensed. Frey doesn’t shy from contact, collecting 37 tackles and 1 tackles for a loss. He’s tough and durable, yet can be schooled by clever receivers who give him more than a single move. In order to crack a crowded secondary roster, he’ll have to contribute to special teams.

Chicago followed up with a seventh round choice of TCU corner Greg McCoy, a speedy, but undersized  (5-10, 181)corner who could help in the kick return game initially. McCoy averaged more than 30 yards on kickoff returns for three straight seasons with three touchdowns. He was the team’s MVP in TCU’s Poinsettia Bowl victory over Louisiana Tech.
