Prospect Profile: Mark Bradley

The Bears believe Mark Bradley is the down the field threat the team has been missing.

Mark Bradley School: Oklahoma
Ht: 6-1.5 Wt: 201 40: 4.45 Year: 5Sr

Bio: Started four games as a senior, posting 23/491/7, averaging 21.3 yards per reception. Played in twelve games the previous season, catching 12 passes and averaging 35.3 yards on seven kick returns with one score. Began his college career at Arkansas-Pine Bluff.

Positives: Fluid, quick pass catcher who excels as a return specialist. Fast off the line of scrimmage, displays quickness into pass routes and stays low on exit. Comes back to the ball out, extends and looks the pass into his hands. Quick transitioning from making the reception to running after the catch, displays good playing speed with the ability to run away from defenders. Finds the soft spot in the defense and shields opponents away with his frame. Easily adjusts or contorts to the pass running full speed.

Negatives: Does too much unnecessary body catching. Lacks the soft hands or ability to pluck the ball out of the air. Loses out in battles.

Analysis: After being marginally productive early in college, Bradley turned himself into a prospect with last year's play. Fits nicely as a fourth receiver that can work his way up the dpeth chart and should be able to make an impact early on special teams.
