Are you familiar with Hudl?
If you've played football recently, or know kids that played football recently, or coached recently, odds are you've come across Hudl.
Hudl is an online source for players and coaches that essentially replaces the days of swapping game film. What Hudl does is obviously a lot deeper than just that, but understand it's a great scouting tool for youth, high school and college athletes and coaches, in numerous sports.
They were kind enough to pass on a few high school, junior college and college highlights from some of the Bears' 2015 rookie class.
In the first round of the 2015 NFL Draft, the Chicago Bears took wide receiver Kevin White of West Virginia, but before he was playing in Morgantown, he was at Lackawanna Junior College in Scranton , Pennsylvania. Here are a few of his highlights.
In the second round of the draft, the Bears took big defensive lineman Eddie Goldman from Florida State. Did you know he has some tailback experience in his past?
Here are a few plays from his days at Friendship Collegiate Academy High School in Washington, DC.
The Bears open rookie minicamp today and besides the six draft picks, the Bears have 15 undrafted free agents that they signed plus a number of rookies at camp on a try out basis.
Central Florida's Jacoby Glenn was a sought after UDFA from Central Florida, but he elected to sign with the Bears. The 6' corner had a draftable grade by most scouts and here are a few of his plays from Vigor High School in Prichard, Alabama.
Qumain Black of tiny East Central college in Ada, Oklahoma was signed as an UDFA last week. The 5'10" corner will try and impress defensive backs coach Ed Donatell and head coach John Fox. Here are some of Black's college highlights from Hudl.
As Hudl grows in popularity, so too will their library of highlights. Morgan Bohl, who is a Copywriter for Hudl, tells me that they had highlights of 98% of all Division 1 power 5 conference commits from the 2015 National Signing Day.
Hopefully next year we'll have even more Bears' rookie highlights from Hudl to pass along.
