    He really shouldn't. Being the giant Heels fan that I am, I can tell you he'd be lucky to compete for third string. Ford is just a much more talented dude with ridiculously more impressive athleticism.

    The 26-year-old Draughn has played for Washington (2011), Kansas City (2011-2013) and Baltimore (2013).

    He appeared in three games for the Ravens last season, rushing four times for two yards. The Ravens waived him in October.

    Draughn had his most productive pro season in 2012, rushing 59 times for 233 yards and two touchdowns, catching 24 passes for 158 yards and returning 23 kickoffs for 537 yards.

    I don't think he was signed as a player. I think he's supposed to help Virginia McCaskey keep the tomato garden weeded. He'll be fine for that. If Shea doesn't do better this year he'll be joining him I suspect. Shea could probably help shoveling the walks there too in the winter.

    Yeah J-99,

    I thought the same thing also but lets break down the players 2012 numbers :

    Rushing: 233/59 =3.9 =+2 TD

    Passes caught: 159/24 = 6.5 YPA not spectacular but within reason.

    This one kind of jumps out : 537 /23 for kickoff return yards ...

    Thats a 23 yard average. Uhhh ...

    Shaun Draughn. Old man Draughn's boy.

    He's been on 5 teams since 2011 (including his camp-fodder stints). Last season for the Ravens he had 4 carries for 2 yards LINK (that's a half of a yard per carry). I suspect we'll let Forte go now that we have Draughn here. I fully expect they'll have a "Draughn Package" for him soon too.

    So... just how many guys do the Bears have on the roster that can return kicks? Ten?
