The Bears made their second selection of the day, selecting Oklahoma wide receiver Juaquin Iglesias with the 99th overall pick, the compensatory pick they got for losing wide receiver Bernard Berrian in free agency to Minnesota.
General manager Jerry Angelo said Saturday that the team was confident it could find a receiver in the draft today that will be able to contribute this season. Igleisas is Oklahoma's all-time leader in receiving yardage, and the Bears have been following him. Wide receivers coach Darryl Drake put him through a private workout earlier this month.
Iglesias has good size at a shade over 6-foot and 204 pounds. He's considered a good route runner and he has good hands. With the depth chart the way it is, Igleisas will have the chance to step in quickly.
The Bears pick again very soon at No. 104 overall. What's next? We're guessing more defensive help. Stay tuned.
