Bears beginning rookie minicamp at Halas Hall


The Bears will kick off their rookie minicamp Friday with virtual meetings and the first of three non-contact practices at Halas Hall.

A total of 33 players are expected to be on hand: seven draft picks, 13 undrafted free agents, eight first-year pros and five unsigned veterans who will participate on a tryout basis.

The rookie minicamp will consist of practices Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The workouts are open to the media, but not the public. Coach Matt Nagy will participate virtually in the minicamp because he is a close contact of someone who tested positive for COVID-19.

In past years, the Bears have invited 30-40 unsigned rookies to try out at the minicamp. But that's not the case this year due to COVID restrictions.

Here's a breakdown of the players who are slated to participate and the jersey numbers they've been assigned:
