Chicago Bears: Why Roquan Smith was the flawless pick

Smith is an excellent pick and could be one that the Chicago Bears remember for years to come.

As a result of his exceptional play, the Bulldogs defensive captain earned AP 1st-Team All-American, 2017 Butkus Award Winner, AP and Coaches SEC Defensive Player of the Year, and AP and Coaches All-SEC 1st Team honors among his other impressive accolades. "And I'm beyond excited, I can't put it into words how excited I am about this opportunity to be a Chicago Bear". His instincts will be a huge asset in run defense and his athletic ability will give Vic Fangio flexibility in coverage, especially against the modern game's tight ends. Smith should be able to step in immediately and push for a starting job alongside his former Georgia Bulldogs' teammate Leonard Floyd. The Georgia standout hopes to add his name to the list of great Chicago linebackers. Smith is a generally accepted player.

There's a common line of thinking that inside linebackers don't hold the same inherent value as more premium positions on defense like cornerback and edge rusher. But the Bears let linebackers Jerrell Freeman, Pernell McPhee and Willie Young go.
