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.
Headed to Chicago!!— Roy Robertson-Harris (@iam_robharris) April 30, 2016
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.
