Bears Take CB Kindle Vildor At No. 163 In 5th Round

(670 The Score) For the second time in as many days, the Bears added a cornerback in the NFL Draft.

Chicago selected Georgia Southern cornerback Kindle Vildor at No. 163 overall in the fifth round Saturday afternoon. On Friday, the Bears took Utah cornerback Jaylon Johnson in the second round.

Vildor was a first-team all-Sun Belt selection in 2019, when he had two interceptions. He played at the Senior Bowl in January, making an impression on NFL teams.

"I'm just happy to be in this moment right now," Vildor said.

Vildor is 6-foot-1 and 191 pounds. He clocked a 4.44 40-yard dash time at the NFL Combine in February.

Not long before taking Vildor, the Bears traded up to No. 155, then selected Tulsa pass rusher Trevis Gipson. Chicago sent a fourth-round pick in 2021 to Minnesota in order to move up.
The Bears later traded into the fifth round again, moving picks to the Eagles to acquire the 173rd overall selection, where they chose Tulane receiver Darnell Mooney. Chicago has two seventh-round picks remaining.
