You voted and corner back is the number 3 need for the Chicago Bears

Last week we asked you to decide which position was the Chicago Bears' 3rd biggest need this off season. You voted, and corner back narrowly beat out offensive tackle. Here are a few free agent and draft options at corner for the Bears.

We kicked off this miniseries last week and you guys picked linebacker as the top need for the Chicago Bears. In that article you picked safety as the #2 need for the Bears and now we're onto the 3rd most pressing need, as voted on by the WCG readers, corner back.

Be sure to click the links above to check out some linebacker and safety options for the 2015 Chicago Bears.

We'll hit on a few free agent corner backs first.


Seattle plans to re-sign Byron Maxwell, but they may get caught up in a bidding war. He's a big corner that would fit well in the Bears' new defensive scheme.

The Bears could look to hurt a division rival by signing Green Bay corner Tramon Williams. He will be 32 this year, but he's only missed one start since 2011.

Lock down corner Darelle Revis is rumored to be let go by the Patriots because it will save them $20 million in 2015. If he's a free agent, I'd expect him to have a few suitors.

If you're looking for a San Francisco connection to come play with new Chicago defensive coordinator Vic Fangio, both 49ers starting corners Perrish Cox and Chris Culliver are unrestricted free agents. Chris Cook, who had 10 starts in 2013 with the Vikings, is another Niner free agent.

Buster Skrine of the Browns has experience both outside and at nickel.

The Bears haven't ruled out Charles Tillman returning either.


At 6'2", 205 pounds, LSU's Jalen Collins has the type of size teams covet at corner, but he may not be available in the 2nd round when the Bears select. I've seen him mocked anywhere between the 1st and the 3rd rounds.

D'Joun Smith from Florida Atlantic had a good week of practice at the Senior Bowl and he could be one of the 'first 5 senior corner backs" taken in the draft.

Senquez Golson of Ole Miss is a little on the short size (5'9"), but he did have 10 interceptions in 2014. He may have to play nickel in the NFL.

Auburn quarterback Nick Marshall is making the transition to corner and he had a game-high tying 5 tackles at the Senior Bowl. He's a great athlete, he has the size for the position (6'2" 205) and he did play corner as a true freshman while at Georgia. is giving Miami's Ladarius Gunter a 4th round grade, but his play at the Senior Bowl may boost his stock.

Who are some possible free agent and collegiate corners you have your eye on?
