The Chicago Bears, presumably with their final pick of the draft, have selected Daniel Braverman with the 230th overall pick.

Braverman is a slot receiver that was second in the nation with 108 receptions (1,371 yards, 13 TD) and is Chicago's only receiver of the draft. The junior left a year early to declare for the draft. Over the course of his career, the 5-foot-10 receiver caught 212 passes, picked up 2,503 yards and got in the end zone 19 times.

His biggest upside is creating space, and uses his agility to make the defender miss and evade himself from tackles.

This is the sixth player from the MAC taken in the NFL Draft. The first player was offensive lineman, and former teammate of Braverman's and now a divisional rival, Willie Beavers, who was taken in the fourth round by the Minnesota Vikings. Tajae Sharpe and Jatavis Brown went to Tennesee Titans and San Diego Chargers, respectively in the fifth round, Kavon Frazier and Darius Jackson are both sixth round picks by the Dallas Cowboys.
