Minnesota cornerback Terrell Smith is the Bears' pick at No. 165 in Round 5 on Saturday.
Smith started 29 games over his five-year career – he got an extra season of eligibility because of the coronavirus – with the Golden Gophers. Surprisingly, he started nine games as a freshman and then not again until 2021. He had two interceptions and two sacks last season.
The 6-foot, 204-pounder is old by draft standards — he turned 24 in July.
The Bears took the 165th pick earlier in the day. About an hour before the draft started, general manager Ryan Poles traded the Round 4 first pick to the Saints; instead, the Bears dropped 12 places in Round 4 and received the Saints' pick, No. 165.
The previous Saturday, the Bears selected Texas running back Roschon Johnson and Cincinnati receiver Tyler Scott in Round 4 and Oregon quarterback Noah Sewell in Round 5.
