Bears' UDFA Signings Include OT James Brown and DT Ronnie Cameron

The Bears announced their list of signed undrafted free agents, and headlining the class of UDFAs is Troy's left offensive tackle, James Brown, as well as some defensive tackle help in Old Dominion defensive tackle Ronnie Cameron.

The addition of Brown isn't a surprise for a team that still could use an upgrade in talent on the offensive line, but Brown was touted as highly as a second-round pick in the draft, though most had him available as a mid-round prospect as well as a likely shift to guard, not being tall enough to stay outside. At this point, I can't figure out why he wasn't drafted, though concerns about his play include raw technique, inconsistent hand placement, improper use of leverage and balance, and discipline on the field without a natural mean streak. But there's a lot to like about him - good movement and footwork, strong, solid positioning in the run game, and durability, starting 37 games at left tackle. CBS has him as a guard shift, Pro Football Weekly thinks he has "starting caliber traits" at both positions, so it'll be up to the Bears to figure out what he is.

For the full list of undrafted prospects, hit the jump. Anything you like?
