Is Farley a reach at 20?

Caleb Farley says NFL doctors gave him good news at medical re-check

Posted by Michael David Smith on April 12, 2021, 5:01 AM EDT

About 150 NFL draft prospects went through medical checkups over the weekend so that NFL medical staffs could get a good look at their progress in recovery from injuries. Virginia Tech cornerback Caleb Farley says his checkup went well.

Farley had back surgery on March 23 and said NFL doctors in Indianapolis over the weekend told him they think he’ll be good to go for the start of training camp.

“I got a lot of positive feedback from the NFL doctors,” Farley said. “The NFL doctors confirmed I would be ready for the season, and they told me this is definitely not a chronic thing.”

Farley hasn’t lost any confidence.

“I plan to be the best cornerback of my generation,” he said. “I just can’t wait to get back in the pads again.”

Most mock drafts have Farley going somewhere around the 10th overall pick in the draft.

Even with the bad luck the Bears have had in the past with Draftees and back issues. I think the Bears may well just pull the trigger here. He could be a replacement for Fuller.

Or do you all think he could slip into the 2nd round or even later?

I would still like to see a LT taken in the first. Though I have read that Darrisaw has issues about his dedication to football, raising red flags. This is especially an issue after the Isaiah Wilson fiasco. Promising prospect that just really does not want to work at being a player. You can't really coach drive, ability or aptitude. You have them or you don't.

Fire Nagy now!

Re-signing Artie Burns and Michael Joseph along with the addition of Desmond Trufant cannot be the answer. They let Fuller go and there has to be a quality signing to replace him.
