SHARE Eddie Goldman, Adrian Amos named to Mel Kiper’s all-rookie team

Despite Chicago’s first-round pick missing the entire season, a pair of Bears rookies was named to Mel Kiper’s all-rookie team Thursday.

Eddie Goldman, a second-round pick in the 2015 draft, and Adrian Amos, a fifth-round pick both made the cut.

Goldman was one of two defensive tackles named to the team, along with New England’s Malcom Brown.

The Florida State product ranked fourth among all rookies with 4.5 sacks this season and had 32 tackles.

“Goldman is going tobe a centerpiece for the Chicago defense for years to come,” Kiper wrote.

Amos, out of Penn State, was one of Chicago’s most consistent performers in the secondary. He finished with 67 tackles and one sack while starting every game and playing more snaps than any other Bears defender this season.

The Bears’ top pick, receiver Kevin White, sat out the entire season while recovering from a shin injury. Chicago holds the No. 11 pick in the 2016 draft.
