List of players at Chicago Bears Local Pro Day

by - Senior Editor -

The Chicago Bears are looking to bounce back in a big way this upcoming season after finishing with a disappointing 3-14 record in 2022.

One way they can improve their team is by taking advantage of the local pro days.

This is an event that is often overlooked, but it can provide teams with a unique opportunity to bring in players from their region that they might not have been able to otherwise.

By bringing in local players, the Bears can take a closer look at potential depth options and find players who might be able to help them out in the future.

Here are some of the top prospects from the Chicago area that could be on the Bears' radar:

Donny Navarro (WR, Northwestern): Navarro is a shifty slot receiver who has excellent hands and is able to make tough catches in traffic.

Jeremy Cooper (OL, Cincinnati): Cooper is a big, athletic offensive lineman who has experience playing both tackle and guard.

Taishan Holmes (DT, Northwestern): Holmes is a powerful defensive tackle who has the ability to clog up plays in the backfield.

Shemar Thornton (WR, Northern Illinois): He had 668 yards and five touchdowns in 2019.

Michael Kennedy (EDGE, Northern Illinois): Kennedy is a long, athletic pass rusher who has the ability to bend around the edge and get to the quarterback. He had 5.5 sacks, including 6.5 for loss last season.

Tyler Hoosman (RB, North Dakota): Hoosman is a powerful running back who has the ability to break tackles and pick up tough yards.

Cole Tucker (WR, Northern Illinois): He is also a solid route runner and has good hands.

Destin Talbert (CB, North Dakota State): Talbert has good ball skills and is able to make plays on the ball. He could be a solid depth option for the Bears' secondary.

He had four interceptions, two forced fumbles, and 15 passes defended in the last two seasons.

Andre Szmyt (K, Syracuse): He is the school's all-time leader in field goals made and field goal percentage.
