Yesterday the Chicago Bears had two players honored with inclusion on the PFWA All-Rookie Team. Today those same two players made the All-Rookie Team.

I have a feeling that Chicago Bears cornerback Kyle Fuller and punter Pat O'Donnell will end up on many of the various All-Rookie Teams that are floating around out there. has revealed their All-Rookie Team and it features these same two Chicago Bears. Here's what Gil Brandt, NFL Media senior analyst for had to say about the rookie Bears.

Cornerback: Kyle Fuller, Chicago Bears
Draft position: Round 1, No. 14

Fuller started the season extremely well, posting three picks in his first three games, before injuries got in the way and slowed him down. He's a good cover corner who can come up and make tackles; he seems to have a good sense of where the ball is. Fuller has a bright future.Punter:

Pat O'Donnell, Chicago Bears
Draft position: Round 6, No. 191

O'Donnell had some pretty impressive stats, averaging 43.8 yards per punt and having 20 punts downed inside the 20-yard line. His success is especially notable because he plays his home games in Soldier Field, which is a pretty tough place to kick in.

Fuller looked like the real deal at times last season and O'Donnell... Well O'Donnell was the only rookie that punted in 2014. But don't hold that against Pat, because in 20 years all these honors will look good on his Wikipedia page.

Since we just had some discussion about Fuller and O'Donnell yesterday, I thought I'd steer our conversion in a different direction tonight.

Which 2nd year Chicago Bears players do you feel will have the best 2015 season?
