National Football League draft: The cases for and against 49ers taking LB Roquan Smith”

In the end, he decided that staying at the No. 8 pick would be the best way to do that, selecting Georgia linebacker Roquan Smith with the eighth overall pick. Chicago has always made defense their bread and butter. He's freakishly fast and posted a 40-yard dash time of 4.51 seconds at the National Football League combine. Smith is a former high school wideout who regularly races down running backs easily.

The 6-foot, 240-pound linebacker is projected as an NFL backup or a key special teams player according to's profile.

This is the exact type of player Chicago needed to come away with in the draft.

Ryan Pace took that pick back into the Top 10 in 2016 to draft Leonard Floyd, and Bears' fans know how aggressive he was to move up to get his quarterback in 2017.

Of course, the Colts could clearly use an upgrade at inside linebacker, where the team has uninspiring holdover Antonio Morrison returning and lost fellow starter Jon Bostic to the Pittsburgh Steelers in free agency.

One of the best parts about Smith is his ability to get lateral in a hurry. Smith will fit in well with the Bears and give a significant boost to their defense. The former Georgia star totaled 252 tackles with 6.5 sacks and 3 forced fumbles from 2015-17.

For the Bears, this pick couldn't be more ideal. Smith is a day-one starter and is going to make an impact right away.
