LAKE FOREST, Ill. » The Chicago Bears have agreed to a four-year contract with West Virginia receiver Kevin White, the seventh overall pick in the draft.

The Bears entered the draft with big needs on defense coming off a 5-11 season but took a play-making receiver to replace the traded Brandon Marshall with their top pick. For White, it was the next step on a meteoric rise from Lackawanna College in Scranton, Pennsylvania, to West Virginia and a founding franchise in the NFL.

White’s contract includes a fifth-year option. The Bears also announced Wednesday a four-year deal with second-rounder Eddie Goldman, a defensive lineman from Florida State.

Five of Chicago’s six picks are under contract. Only third-round pick and former Oregon center Hroniss Grasu remains unsigned.
