The Bears announced they signed three of their five draft choices Monday.

Fourth-rounder Riley Ridley and seventh-rounders Kerrith Whyte and Stephen Denmark are under contract, leaving only third-rounder David Montgomery and sixth-rounder Duke Shelley unsigned.

Ridley, the younger brother of Falcons receiver Calvin Ridley, joins Anthony Miller and Javon Wims as complements to Allen Robinson and Taylor Gabriel.

He made 43 receptions for 559 yards and nine touchdowns for Georgia last season, giving him 69 career catches for 1,015 yards and 13 touchdowns.

Whyte, a running back from Florida Atlantic, probably has the best chance to stick on special teams. He returned 81 career kickoffs for a 26.1 yards average and two touchdowns. In three seasons, he also rushed for 1,358 yards and 11 touchdowns on 232 carries.

Denmark, a cornerback from Valdosta State, is a converted receiver and with only one year of experience at the position likely is more of a candidate for the practice squad.

  1. Good draft, nice nucleus of talent. Another team that built a bad team up with top defensive and offensive players over three year period. They will be competitive

  2. I can’t stop laughing considering “They still suck” is coming from a bitter Vikings fan. They beat your sorry team and multi million dollar QB twice last year. You need to really evaluate who actually sucks before you post.

  4. As if a Vikes fan has a real judge of talent. Go play shotgun catch up fail Mary football and leave the real NFC North team to ball out bro
