On a busy Day Three of the NFL Draft for the Chicago Bears, the team continues to add depth in important areas. With the 203rd pick in the sixth-round of the NFL Draft, the Bears selected running back Trestan Ebner out of Baylor.

The Baylor product has solid speed with his 4.43 40-yard dash. That said, he was the Big 12 special teams player of the year in 2021. That level of versatility is something that the Bears have targeted with other picks such as their Velus Jones Jr. pick in third round. At this point in the draft, finding players that can make a difference on special teams right away is very valuable.

Ebner might not see much time in the backfield as a rookie. However, his ability to contribute on special teams is very valuable in his first year. As indicated above, he has great home run speed. However, his lack of aggressive running will likely keep him in a reserve running back role but allow him to be a big contributor on special teams.
