From BlueHens.com

He (Nichols) becomes the first Delawarean drafted as Blue Hen since Dan Reeder in 1985, who was also a fifth round pick. Reeder’s sons, Troy and Colby, were defensive starters alongside Nichols last year and will be key cogs in the 2018 team this fall.

(4) Will rookie pass-rushers Bilal Nichols and Kylie Fitts build off their impressive preseason debuts?

Both Nichols, a fifth-round defensive end, and Fitts, a sixth-round outside linebacker, recorded one of eight Bears sacks in the Hall of Fame Game. They no doubt will get many more opportunities to rush the quarterback Thursday night in Cincinnati.

Nichols was a two-year starter at Delaware who registered 56 tackles, 5.5 sacks and one interception last season as a senior. "He's got really good hands," said defensive line coach Jay Rodgers. "His get-off is pretty good. Where he needs to improve is his finishes. You see that in one-on-ones, you see that in game-time situations. [But] I think he has it in him."

2 Bear stories yesterday have Bilal easily making the 53 man roster and also being a rotation regular.
