Bears draft LSU DT Ferguson in second round

LAKE FOREST, Ill. – The Chicago Bears continued to address their defense in the second round of the draft, taking LSU defensive tackle Ego Ferguson with the 51st pick on Friday.

The Bears have been busy retooling a unit that ranked among the league’s worst in an effort to jump to the playoffs after missing out for the sixth time in seven years. They went 8-8 last season.

Chicago addressed the line in the second round after grabbing Virginia Tech cornerback Kyle Fuller with the 14th pick on Thursday.

The 6-foot-3, 315-pound Ferguson brings size and athleticism, but is also considered raw. He did not work out at the NFL combine because of a right ankle injury.
