Bears Select Temple FB/TE Evan Rodriguez in Fourth Round

| April 28th, 2012

Talk about a selection that signals the offensive philosophy change.

If Rodriguez makes the team he will most likely take Tyler Clutts’ roster spot. He can line up at fullback, tight end, H-back…etc. He’s a versatile talent but an unconventional type player. I will hopefully have more to say by the end of the weekend once I’ve made a few calls. (I know his high school football coach in North Bergen, NJ.)

The decision to pass up on Massie here is a simple one: Massie is a right tackle in the NFL. He does not translate at all as a left tackle in the league. And the Bears believe Gabe Carimi will be their right tackle for the next decade.
