A beefier Tarik Cohen and fond memories among Bears’ mini camp storylines

Cohen certainly doesn’t lack confidence, as he noted this week. We discuss his improvements and go through Bears’ draft ideals on the latest WCG Radio.

Part of what makes Tarik Cohen a special player is that he always believes he’s the most talented player on the field. That despite his size at 5-foot-6, he strives to be the game breaker most athletes only wish they could be. “I’m the biggest guy in the room, no matter what room I go in,” exemplifies Cohen’s mentality through his own words at this week’s veteran mini camp at Halas Hall.

On a fresh WCG Radio, 247 Sports’ Matt Eurich helps me break down Cohen’s improvements from his rookie season, decipher the Bears’ prospect visit list as it pertains to the 2018 NFL Draft, and look back on better days with Devin Hester and Matt Forte.
