North Carolina A&T Running Back Tarik Cohen Selected by Chicago Bears in NFL Draft

North Carolina A&T running back Tarik Cohen was taken by the Chicago Bears in the fourth round of the 2017 Draft on Saturday. Cohen, a three-time Offensive Player of the Year in the MEAC, had 1,588 rushing yards, 19 touchdowns last season.

He also rushed for a conference record 5,619 yards in four seasons, with 61 total touchdowns. He’s a human lightning bolt on the field, and he does cool flips that look better-suited to gymnastics than football.

Here’s Cohen catching two footballs while mid-backflip:
