Isaiah Frey of Nevada selected in sixth round by Bears

| 3 Comments | No TrackBacks

In the sixth round, the Bears selected Nevada cornerback Isaiah Frey.

At least from NFL analysts and pundits, Frey didn't foster a whole lot of buzz or excitement. CBS Sports had him ranked as the 453rd best prospect, the 48th best at his position.

But, Frey has what every other Bears draft pick has: size and speed.

He's 5 foot 10, 190 pounds, and he ran the 40-yard dash in 4.46 seconds. Those are impressive numbers.

He led the Wolf Pack with five interceptions, and he was named a preseason All-American by Sports Illustrated. But, he wasn't overwhelming enough to get an invite to the NFL Combine or many post-season all-star games.

A three-year starter, he led his conference with 21 pass break ups last season.

Not a bad pick for the 6th round. I know people will say they could have gotten him as a rookie free agent, but, obviously they seen enough potential in him to invest a draft pick in him. Nice size at 5-10 and the 4.4 40 is also nice. Had 14 pass breakups in 2010 and 52 tackles, then got better this year with 21 pass breakups to go along with 5 ints. Played for a small school but showed up vs bigger schools. In 2010 had a season high 8 tackles vs California, and in The Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl had 6 tackles. Level of competition might not be an issue? We'll find out in camp, should be interesting GO BEARS!!

Reminds me a lot of Joshua Moore, who couldn't even get active on game day before getting released during the season. I don't think there is any room for him with Wilhite, Hayden, Tillman, Moore, and Jennings already there. He also has not played special teams in college...What was the appeal? I would really like to understand what they are thinking at Halas Hall this weekend, because I just can't seem to get a handle on it.

Still no OL help, still no LBs...

No the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl? Really? Oh my goodness, let me go purchase my Frey jersey right away. Do you think he will sign my box of macaroni and cheese? He's the Cheesiest.
