Bears sign LSU linebacker Micah Baskerville to free agent deal


by - Senior Editor -

Former LSU linebacker Micah Baskerville has signed an undrafted free agent deal with the Chicago Bears.

Baskerville was a key contributor to LSU's defense, helping the team win the SEC West title in 2022.

Although he lacks top-notch measurements, Baskerville is an intelligent, fluid linebacker with good play speed and makes a ton of plays.

As a five-year player at LSU, Baskerville combined for 260 tackles, 22.5 tackles for a loss, and 14 passes defended as a smart, savvy patroller over the middle of the field.

He has an arm length of 31.375 inches, a hand size of 9.5 inches, a wingspan of 78.25 inches, a vertical jump of 35.5 inches, a broad jump of 9 feet, 7 inches, and a 40-yard dash time of 4.75 seconds.

Baskerville was a 4-star high school prospect and Top 300 recruit. While he went undrafted, his signing with the Bears adds depth to their linebacker room, and he could be a special teams option to watch.

As a locker room leader with great tape, he has the potential to make an impact in the NFL with hard work and dedication.
