Immediately following the conclusion of the NFL draft, all undrafted players are allowed to sign contracts with any team that offers them one.
The Bears have been busy since the draft ended and have signed nine undrafted free agents since Saturday night, according to the Chicago Tribune.
Jordan Lynch, Running Back, Northern Illinois
It would have been an uphill battle for Northern Illinois' Jordan Lynch to make this roster as a quarterback, but the Bears appear to like him more as a runner.
"You want as many athletes who can do as many things as possible, and he certainly presents options that way," Emery said of Lynch to the media in a press conference. "But the thing that I was really impressed with (was) just his skill as a runner."
If he can develop quickly, the team may be able to find a spot for him as a fullback/H-back.
James Dunbar, Tackle, TCU
NFLDraftScout.com has TCU's James Dunbar measured in at 6'5" and 311 pounds and was rated as its 38th-best tackle in this year's draft.
He will likely compete for a spot on the practice squad.
Lee Pegues, Defensive Tackle/End, East Carolina
The 6'2", 291-pound Lee Pegues has the versatility to play both defensive tackle and defensive end. The chances of him making the 53-man roster will be low with the additions of guys like Jared Allen, Lamarr Houston and Willie Young at defensive end and Ferguson and Sutton at defensive tackle.
Brandon Dunn, Defensive Tackle, Louisville
A former pupil of new assistant defensive line coach Clint Hurtt at Louisville, Brandon Dunn will compete with the likes of Ratliff, Stephen Paea, Nate Collins, Ferguson and Sutton for a roster spot.
In three seasons with the Cardinals, Dunn registered 87 tackles, eight tackles for loss, three sacks and two pass deflections.
Christian Jones, Linebacker, Florida State
One of the better players who went undrafted, Christian Jones likely has the best shot of making the 53-man roster this season out of all of the undrafted free agents the Bears have signed.
He has the versatility to play all three linebacker positions and also has the ability to rush the quarterback.
DeDe Lattimore, Linebacker, South Florida
South Florida's DeDe Lattimore has experience playing both middle and weak-side linebacker, but due to coverage limitations, he is likely a weak-side linebacker at best.
The Bears took Khaseem Greene in the fifth round last season and are likely still high on his ability to develop into the team's weak-side linebacker in the future.
If Lattimore wants to land a spot on the Bears roster, he'll have to prove that he has the ability to contribute on special teams at the next level.
Tana Patrick, Linebacker, Alabama
Alabama's Tana Patrick was rarely anything more than a spot starter for the Crimson Tide during his time in Tuscaloosa.
He registered just 39 tackles in four seasons, and he likely will be viewed as nothing more than a camp body for the Bears.
Ryan Groy, Guard, Wisconsin
A projected late-round selection, the Bears got good value in signing Wisconsin's Ryan Groy.
He measured in at the combine at 6'5" and 316 pounds and ran a 5.19 40-yard dash, via NFL.com. He showed his versatility while at Wisconsin, making starts at left tackle, left guard, center and fullback.
Cody Booth, Tackle, Temple
Cody Booth began his career at Temple as a tight end before being moved to left tackle his senior season.
Booth is similar to former Temple and Bears alum Steve Maneri. Maneri played tight end at Temple before transitioning into an offensive tackle/tight end hybrid in the NFL. He played in four games for the Bears last season before being released.
If Booth can prove that he can be a willing and capable blocker, he has a chance of making this roster as the team's blocking tight end.
