Bears select Alabama safety Eddie Jackson in the fourth round


After going with offense with their first two draft selections, the Bears addressed their defense on Saturday.

The Bears traded pick No. 117 and No. 197 to the Los Angeles Rams for No. 112 and used the selection to grab Alabama safety Eddie Jackson.

Jackson, an All-American in 2015, had 24 tackles and an interception before missing the remainder of his senior season after breaking his leg against Texas A&M in October.

Jackson finished his career at Alabama with nine interceptions.
