The Chicago Bears reeled in a solid draft class in 2015, as the Pro Football Writers of America recently recognized two members on their annual All-Rookie team.

Safety Adrian Amos and defensive tackle Eddie Goldman were the two selections.

Via the Bears’ official Twitter account:

Amos, a fifth-round pick out of Penn State, started all 16 games. He held the defensive backfield together while veteran safety Antrel Rolle struggled with ankle and knee injuries, missing a total of 11 games in 2015. Amos finished third on the team with 67 tackles (57 solo, one for a loss), along with two defended passes and a sack.

Goldman, a Florida State product, was a second-round pick who played in 15 games and started 12 of them. He served as the anchor of the defense at nose tackle, finishing the season with 22 tackles (16 solo, one for a loss), as well as 4.5 sacks and a blocked kick.

With Amos and Goldman in the mix, the Bears have the building blocks in place for a promising defense.
