KYLER GORDON ABSORBS A HIT FROM A 300LB LINEMAN AND STILL MAKES THE TACKLE

JUL 2, 2022  (10H16)      V. CARBONNEAU
The Bears made, in my mind, an amazing selection when they selected CB Kyler Gordon out of the University of Washington. Gordon was one of my favorite players in this class and I could hardly be more thrilled to see him coming to Chicago.

This was clearly one of the best value picks in the second round of the draft (Pick 39). Gordon was projected by over 50% of the experts to be a first-round pick. It was great to see him still available at pick 139.

Bears area scout Francis St. Paul feels that one of Gordon's greatest attributes as a player is his fluid movement skills.

"He's an elite mover," St. Paul said. "His change of direction. His feet. Ball skills. Those are some of the [things] that stuck out."

"This is a guy, when you speak with him, you'll see he's very calm," St. Paul said. "Corners, you've got to forget about the last play, because you will get beat. And he's one of the guys, that if he gets beat, it didn't bother him at all and he came back and competed for more on the next play."

Check out this crazy video of him absorbing a hit by a pulling guard and still making the tackle for loss. This is not normal for a cornerback!!
