Chicago Bears Draft RB Tarik Cohen

The Chicago Bears drafted North Carolina A&T running back Tarik Cohen. The 5-foot-6, 179 pound Cohen dominated FCS competition in the MEAC last year, rushing for 1,588 yards and 19 touchdowns and catching 37 passes for 339 yards and one receiving score.  Cohen measured only 5-foot-6, 179 pounds at the combine. He’s known for his speed (he ran the 40-yard dash in 4.42 seconds at the combine) and cutting ability. Cohern has earned the nickname “The Human Joystick” in college. A lot of NFL experts compare Tarik Cohen to Darren Sproles, another undersized playmaking running back who carved out a career in the NFL.
