Illinois RB Rashard Mendenhall

Draft Profile

kchief1990 with the pick:

The Bears have similar problems to the Chiefs with their line under performing and need an OT, but they can pick one up in the second or third round and use this pick on a skill player. The Bears are a run first team and Cedric Benson has not lived up to expectations while playing and has proven to be a bit injury prone.

At 5'11 and 224 pounds, Rashard Mendenhall has nice prototypical RB size complemented by a 4.40 average 40 time. He runs with a low center of gravity and has the patience to let blocks develop in front of him. While his breaking tackle ability is average he makes up for it with very good instincts. He hits holes well and can make a 1 yard gain turn into a 4 yard gain time after time. Ideally he can come in and have a Joseph Addai type of impact on the Bears.
