The Bears were widely praised for their haul in the 2021 NFL Draft, but they didn’t stop adding talent there, adding Virginia linebacker Charles Snowden as an undrafted free agent.

An incredibly lengthy prospect at 6-foot-6 and 243 pounds, Snowden is a physical specimen who blends top-notch athletic ability with insane length to create a massive tackle radius. He has experience as both an edge rusher and an off-ball linebacker, and his ability to be moved around gives him additional upside at the NFL level.

Though he suffered a season-ending injury in November of 2020 that saw him unable to play in the Senior Bowl, the physical upside with a player like Snowden is palpable. There’s no guarantee he makes the team’s active roster being an undrafted free agent, but he projects as the Bears’ best undrafted free agent signing this year.

I displayed what about Snowden makes him an undrafted free agent worth remembering for Bears fans.
