The Chicago Bears may seem set at safety after Eddie Jackson and Adrian Amos finished up as the most productive duo in recent years, but the depth behind them is lacking.

Right now the reserves on the roster are DeAndre Houston-Carson, who is on the roster because of his specialk teams prowess, Deon Bush, who hasn’t been very good, and Deiondre’ Hall, who has played one snap at safety in his two year career.

It makes sense for the Bears to add some more young players to the mix, so it’s not surprising that it has been reported by Jared Tokarz of the NFL Draft Insider, that the Bears have a workout set up with Northwestern’s Kyle Queiro. Since he attended college in Evanston, it’s certainly possible that Quiero (6’2”, 215) is going to workout at their local pro day at Halas Hall.

Quiero had a decent pro day at Northwestern a couple weeks ago, but his numbers weren’t eye popping. He had a 4.71 forty, a 32.5” vertical, and 16 reps on the bench, to name a few events, and he’s a likely undrafted free agent.

Before the 2018 season, Pro Football Focus had Quiero as their breakout candidate on their NFL Draft watch list. They cited his sure tackling and his ability to cover tight ends as his strengths.

In 2017 he had 59 tackles, 3.5 tackles for loss, 5 interceptions (1 TD), and 8 passes defended.
