The Chicago Bears have signed second-round draft pick (No. 45 overall) Adam Shaheen.

 Shaheen, a 6-6, 278-pounder from Ashland University, led all Division II tight ends in receptions (57) and yards (867) last season and led all college football tight ends with 16 touchdown receptions in 11 games, an Ashland single-season record.

 As a freshman in 2014, Shaheen caught two passes for 85 yards as the team’s No. 3 tight end. He then took over the starting job in 2015, catching 70 passes — a Division II record for tight ends — for 803 yards and 10 touchdowns.

 Over his three years at Ashland Shaheen totaled 124 catches for 1,755 yards and 26 touchdowns.
