Sixteen months after they made him the seventh overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft, the Bears will finally see what they have in wide receiver Kevin White today.

Although White is officially listed as questionable with a hamstring injury, multiple reports say he will play in today’s game against the Texans.

An All-American wide receiver at West Virginia, White missed his entire rookie year after suffering a stress fracture in his shin.

If all goes according to plan, White will be the Bears’ No. 2 receiver, opposite Alshon Jeffery.

    .
    I guess the “A” grade the Bears received on draft day was rather meaningless.

    If the O line can protect Cutler from Watt, Clowney, and Mercilus I expect a big day from White and Jeffery!!! I think the Texans Deandre Hopkins will have a big day lining up against Kyle Fuller. Our secondary is horrible! Go Bears though!!! #beardown

    And so far, as a Bears Fan, I’ve seen nothing that shows this guy is anything close to an all pro

    Cutler will have the best receiver tandem in the NFL.

    He was probably holding out for a better quarterback. Right? I mean Cutler is the ultimate carrot. Always dangling if’s and but’s in front of us. We all climbed to the top of his physical gifts only to plunge to his to the depth of his football IQ. Sorry Kevin, you’re living in next year land.

    Kevin White will be a beast.

    Yeah but Jay Cutler is still their quarterback.

    White as another wasted draft pick for the Bears…..looks like Tarzan plays like Jane. They could have had a defensive player……kept Marshall.

    Wow, too think i was upset the Raiders took Cooper over white. i guess that is why i am not a GM.

    If the Bears OL can give Cutler time, he usually does pretty good. But that’s a big if, but ya never know!!

    Drafting a WR in the top 10 shows bad i mean very bad drafting. You can get great talent at that position in round 2 and beyond.

    All these assumptions about Kevin White hours before we see his actual first NFL performance. Can you guys see into the future?

    The guy was injured, it could have easily happened to Amari Cooper, let White play a few games before you judge him, it’s common sense people.

    Bears GM Ryan Pace is putting together a pretty good resume as regards the 2nd through 5th rounds of the draft (Goldman, Whitehair, Langford, Amos, Howard, potentially Deondre Hall). Where he’s struggling is with the marquee FAs and his 1st round picks… Eddie Royal and Pernell McPhee who have brought marginal return on big investments, Kevin White who was a washout his rookie season and Leonard Floyd who will likely only be a part time player until next season at least (though most people knew that would be the case with him going in).

    A big reason the Bears roster got to such a sorry state in the late Lovie and Trestman era was because of so many front-office whiffs on 1st round picks and big money FAs. That needs to change. If Pace’s luck turns around in those areas — Royal and Sitton staying healthy and producing would be a a great start — the Bears could start improving in a hurry. But if not, they are going to have a hard time returning to playoff contention.

    They also notified the Texans stadium staff to have an extra meat cart on hand for this game and crutches if they can spare a pair.

    Yeah, but how was Pace supposed to know that White had that inj? Everything I read had all teams clearing White medically. The others seem like bad Bear luck. McPhee and Royal were not known to be inj prone. Even some lower tier FA like Rolle never missed a game, until he joined the Bears naturally.

    I agree though, can’t miss on first rounders like Angelo, and gotta score periodically on lower rd picks.

    Big rookie gaffe for the INT Buthelezi didn’t look horrible.

    Just sucks to think his breakout second year will technically be his third year.
