The Bears went into this offseason with a need to add a third quality corner, and in Stevenson, they get a player that should compete for a starting spot as a rookie.
“After earning third-team All-ACC accolades, Stevenson was selected for the 2023 Senior Bowl where his draft stock continued to catapult,” wrote Jake Marcus of SB Nation’s State of the U. “Of note, Stevenson impressed nearly every day at Senior Bowl practices locking down the nation’s top wide receivers and was popping up on numerous mock drafts as early as the first round.”
He started his collegiate career at Georgia, but played the last two years with the Hurricanes. In all, he played in 41 games, with 115 tackles, 21 passes defended, and 3 interceptions.
