After a stellar senior season in which Cohen broke MEAC records and help guide the Aggies to the FCS Playoffs, it was no surprise that he was about to get his shot to prove himself in the NFL.




And on Saturday, April 29th, Tarik Cohen received the call that would change his life, as the Chicago Bears made him their 4th round draft pick.

Cohen filled us in on the madness that is the NFL Draft process, his relationship with his new organization, and relived some of his favorite memories from his collegiate career, in the finale of “Beyond the Yard” In Depth with Tarik Cohen.
