Tayo Fabuluje got the call of a lifetime on Saturday when Bears coach John Fox informed the TCU tackle that the Bears had selected him with their sixth-round pick, the 183rd overall.
Sometimes not being picked early in the NFL Draft can be just as much of a headline — if not a bigger one — than going No. 1 overall.
For the 12th time in the last 14 drafts, the Bears used a draft choice on a safety (and that doesn’t include free-agency signings). It’s a pattern that has to end sometime.
Not that long ago the Bears made an annual dip into free agency for a veteran backup to running back Matt Forte. Now the search for Forte understudies appears to be settling into the draft.
