UTEP's Roy Robertson-Harris joins the Chicago Bears

New, 3 comments

Robertson-Harris is headed to the Windy City.

After an impressive Pro Day, and a number of top-30 draft visits to franchises during his draft process, Roy Robertson-Harris has found an NFL home.

The 6'6 defender announced via his social media pages that he is headed to Chicago for a chance at cracking the Chicago Bears roster as an undrafted free agent.

He appeared in 47 games as a Miner, starting 33 games, and piled up 10.5 sacks in his UTEP career.

A vocal, and emotional leader on UTEP's defense the past three seasons, Robertson-Harris recorded 138 career tackles, and 23 career tackles for loss.  He was also a big part in UTEP's 5.1% defensive line havoc rate which ranked 54th in the nation last year.

A versatile five technique defensive end in UTEP's 4-2-5 defense, teams have shown interest in him as a 3-4 outside linebacker, but RRH can be moved around as a valuable defensive option in certain packages.

The Bears held a private workout with Robertson-Harris, and had him on a visit to Halas Hall just last week.
