Fast-rising DB prospect Darius Rush reportedly visits Bears


by - Senior Editor -

South Carolina defensive back Darius Rush has caught the attention of NFL teams as a promising prospect for the upcoming 2023 NFL Draft.

Rush has had several conversations with the Chicago Bears throughout the pre-draft process and recently visited Halas Hall according to reports, indicating a potential interest from the team.

At the Senior Bowl, Rush demonstrated his skills and potential, going from a developmental project to one of the game's best players. Rush is long, athletic, and consistently performs well at the catch point. He also ran an impressive 4.36 40 at the combine, which had NFL teams scrambling to review his college tape.

Rush's measurables and performance have made him a compelling choice for NFL teams.

His other physical attributes are impressive besides his speed with a vertical of 35 inches, and a broad jump of 10 feet, 1 inch.

These stats, coupled with his versatility and athleticism, make Rush a highly intriguing prospect for NFL teams looking for a promising young defensive back.

Rush switched from wide receiver to cornerback after the 2018 season and didn't see extended playing time until the 2021 season.

In 2022, he had 38 tackles with a forced fumble, two interceptions and seven pass defended.

Despite being sort of a developmental project, Rush's potential, versatility, and athleticism make him an exciting choice for any team looking for a young and talented defensive back.
