Isaiah Frey was drafted by the Bears. Thats good news for the young man.

He was selected in the sixth round. This is not good news for the Bears.

The Bears have gotten virtually nothing from a sixth-round draft pick since kicker Paul Edinger in the 2000 draft. Expectations are not especially high for Nevada cornerback Frey (he is not in many draft guides and was not invited to the Scouting Combine) but for that matter, almost nothing is expected out of Bears sixth-rounders:
