The Chicago Bears must have really been happy with their draft because they have wasted no time getting their players signed.
First, the Bears agreed to a deal with one of their fourth-round picks, former Arizona Wildcats’ running back Ka’Deem Carey. Then, they struck a deal with three more picks, former Minnesota Golden Gophers’ safety Shane Vereen, a fourth-round pick, former San Jose State Spartans’ quarterback David Fales, a sixth-rounder and former Boise State Broncos’ offenisve lineman Charles Leno, a seventh-rounder. Later in the day, they came to terms with their second-round pick, former LSU Tigers’ defensive tackle Ego Ferguson and their sixth-round, former Miami Hurricanes’ punter Pat O’Donnell.
Now that Bears have agreed with the crown jewel of their class, their first round pick, former Virginia Tech Hokies’ cornerback Kyle Fuller.

The 6’0, 190-pound Fuller didn’t necessarily seem like a target of the Bears early on in the process, but may have been the top defensive back available. He made 24 tackles and two interceptions in 2013.
