Bears’ Draft Pick Nicknamed ‘The Human Joystick’ Shows Off Freakish Athleticism In Insane Instagram Posts

by 12 months ago


It seems like all of Chicago was infuriated that their Bears sent two third-round picks and a fourth-round pick to San Francisco to move up one spot to draft quarterback UNC standout QB Mitch Trubisky. The poor bastard was booed at the Bulls’ playoff game last week.

The Trubisky pick vastly overshadowed Chicago’s other four picks of the draft, including I-AA North Carolina A&T running back Tarik Cohen, chosen in the fourth round. Cohen is only 5-foot-6 but ran the 40-yard dash in 4.42 seconds at the scouting combine. It was the third-fastest time among running backs this year. Cohen rushed for an astounding 5,619 yards, 56 TDs in four seasons at A&T. He is also a freaking athletic monster, evident in these Instagram posts from his college days.

He told ESPN:

“It started because I had seen someone else do it first, so we were bored in the summer after conditioning and we just decided to go out and try it,” said Cohen, the MEAC’s all-time leading rusher. “The first two times I think I fell, and the third time I pulled it off pretty naturally, and that’s when I got the hang of it because I stopped being scared.”

This likely won’t stop Bears fans from keeping about the Trubisky pick, so this post is pointless. Please enjoy the rest of your day.
