In his first season with the Bears after replacing longtime kicker Robbie Gould, Barth connected on 18-of-23 field goals attempts and made 31 out of a possible 32 extra points. 

In 99 career games with the Kansas City Chiefs (2008), Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2009-12, 2015), Denver Broncos (2014) and Bears (2016), Barth has converted 157-of-187 field goal attempts and missed just two extra points.

The Bears now have their punter (Pat O'Donnell), long-snapper (Patrick Scales) and kicker (Barth) under contract for the 2017 season.

Takkarist McKinley, OLB, UCLA

6'2" | 250 lbs.

2016 stats:

61 tackles, 18 TFL, 10 sacks, 6 PD, 3 FF

Projection:

First round

Scouting Report:

"Ascending edge prospect who racked up impressive TFL and sack numbers this year despite a relatively raw approach and skill set. He's a little stiff in his lower body, but flashes good athleticism once the ball is snapped. McKinley's motor is a translatable characteristic, but improved hand usage and pass rush mechanics are what could elevate his game to another level as a starting, 3-4 outside linebacker. " — Lance Zierlein, NFL.com

Scouting Report:

"System quarterback with more than 65 percent of his attempts coming inside of 10 yards. Webb has enough raw talent to be considered a developmental prospect, but his decision-making and accuracy issues beyond 10 yards is a big red flag that might be tough to overcome in the NFL." — Lance Zierlein, NFL.com
