Bears officially add two, becoming first team to sign any draft picks
The Bears signed a pair of draft picks on Wednesday in fifth-rounder Jordan Mills and sixth-rounder Cornelius Washington.
Getting all your draft picks signed isn't a race, but if it were, the Chicago Bears would be winning.
Chicago signed two of its six draft picks on Wednesday, making the Bears the first team in the NFL to sign any picks at all.
Fifth-round pick Jordan Mills out of Louisiana Tech and sixth-round pick Cornelius Washington from the University of Georgia both agreed to four-year deals.
Washington played both outside linebacker and defensive end during his four-year career at UGA, however, the Bears will have him only playing defensive end, "Chicago wants me to play defensive end and I'm very happy with that," Washington told the Bears' official website. "I'm very comfortable with the position."
Washington tallied 76 and 10.5 sacks in 25 career starts with the Bulldogs.
As for Mills, he played a right tackle in college and started all 12 games last season for a Louisiana Tech team that produced the No. 1 offense in the nation and scored over 50 points per game.
Mills' plan this offseason is to learn everything he can from Jermon Bushrod, who the Bears signed in March, "I will go sit and learn behind Bushrod and everybody else and soak up all the knowledge I can," Mills said.
