With the No. 163 overall pick the 2020 NFL draft, the Bears added some more depth to their secondary in Georgia Southern cornerback Kindle Vildor.

The 5-foot-10, 191-pound Vildor was a three-year starter in college, and he concluded his collegiate career with impressive numbers in the stat sheet. With 9 interceptions and 25 pass deflections in those three seasons in the starting lineup, he is a proven producer with good ball skills, impressive physicality, tackling ability, and plenty of confidence and swagger on the field.

He projects similarly to Buster Skrine as a physical nickelback in the Bears’ defense, as well as an instant standout on special teams. To get a better understanding of what to expect from Vildor, check out my Twitter thread on the rookie:
