Kevin White believes if he's available at 7, he'll be picked by the Bears

Earlier today we brought you the skinny on Danny Shelton believing the Chicago Bears were one of two teams that would end up drafting him, and now we're bringing you news about another prospect that feels there's a good chance he'll be a Bear.

From NFL.com;

"I feel like if I'm there at seven, I think they will pick me," White told reporters Wednesday at the NFL Play 60 Youth Football Clinic. "But you never know what happens in the draft. ... I guess we'll see."

White has good reason to believe Chicago is a potential landing spot.

He added that the coaching staff is "very high" on him and has already spoken to him about potentially filling the void left by the Brandon Marshall trade.

Kevin White has been a popular choice at 7 for the Bears according to the mock drafters, but Chicago GM Ryan Pace will have a plethora of options tomorrow night. Edge rusher, wide out, trade back, etc...

I believe White will be the second wide out off the board, following Alabama's Amari Cooper, and if Cooper is still available at 7, Chicago may favor the safer route and grab Cooper.

Many scouts feel Cooper is the most pro ready of all the wide receiver prospects, but White may have the higher upside.
