The Chicago Bears have selected Georgia Southern cornerback Kindle Vildor with the #163 pick in the fifth round of the 2020 NFL Draft.

Vildor is an explosive athlete that was super impressive during the Senior Bowl.

He was an All-Sun Belt selection the last two years for Georgia Southern. Overall during his collegiate career, he had nine picks and 33 pass breakups in four seasons.

NFL analyst Dane Brugler had the following opinion of Vildor.

"A tough evaluation because he consistently overachieved as a junior due to his smarts and short-area quickness, but he didn't play at the same level as a senior and doesn't have ideal size or play speed for the position."

Bleacher Report NFL expert Matt Miller is a fan of Vildor.

"He was one of my risers of the week. I like that the Bears are being aggressive. I like the upside."
