With their second pick in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft, the Chicago Bears drafted Miami defensive back Deon Bush.

Bush is considered an all-around player in both pass coverage and run support. He had four interceptions and 13 pass breakups in his career and also had a knack for knocking the ball loose (five forced fumbles in 2014).

Bush’s draft profile on NFL.com also describes him as a high-character guy as “the American Football Coaches Association put him on their All-Good Works team this season, and he donated his per diem money from the Independence Bowl for Christmas gifts for homeless children.”

Bush will step in and compete for playing time alongside starter Adrian Amos in 2016, and likely will contribute on special teams.
