The Bears' sixth and final pick of the draft (barring trading back in) is offensive tackle Tayo Fabuluje out of TCU.

He's a 6'6", 353-pound behemoth of a man, running a 5.55 40, but benching 16 reps.

Fabuluje started 12 games at left tackle last year for the Horned Frogs and earned honorable mention All-Big 12 honors. Prior to that, he started 12 of the 13 games he played in in 2012 at TCU, but in 2013, he transferred to Brigham Young, with no contact with the football team. Since becoming college-eligible, he redshirted in 2010 at BYU, transferred to TCU and sat out 2011, then sat out in 2013 again. He will need a fair amount of refining for being an off-and-on football player.

As a player, he's hard to move off the point of attack, and is not easy to bull-rush, but also has footwork and precision hand placement issues. That doesn't mean he doesn't have the ability to improve this, as a lot of it could simply be a lack of playing. lists his comparable as Marcus Cannon. You can read the rest of the profile here.
