The Bears wrapped up Day 2 of the rookie minicamp in what Lovie Smith described as some Bear weather.
Maybe. It was drizzling and hardly inspiring football conditions. The program will wrap up Sunday and the hope is the players who return in the middle of the month in preparation for the full-squad minicamp an retain what they’ve learned. As much as practicing, it’s about learning how to practice. The drills. The pace. All of it.
Smith singled out tight end Kellen Davis, the fifth-round pick from Michigan State, for having another solid day of work. Davis could become a dynamic force on special teams at 6-7, 262 pounds with 4.6 speed. Special teams coordinator Dave Toub sees him as a complement to Israel Idonije.
We’ll wrap up the weekend Sunday.
