    With the ninth overall draft pick in Thursday night's first round, the Bears selected Georgia linebacker Leonard Floyd, who possesses the pass-rush skills that could translate to double-digit sacks in the NFL.

    The 6-foot-6, 244-pound Floyd played outside linebacker in Georgia's 3-4 defense, and he checks most of the boxes as a pass rusher: tall, fast, quick and explosive (39 1/2-inch vertical).
