The Bears went for Arkansas DT Marcus Harrison with the 90th overall selection, finding a player to help solidify the middle that was troubled last season.
Coach Lovie Smith met with Harrison in a trip to the pro day at Arkansas and liked him. Many projected him to be a second-round pick.
The Bears departed from GM Jerry Angelo's character push after drafting two Vanderbilt players with the first three picks.
Harrison is sorting through legal issues after being pulled over for speeding last summer and being found in possession of ecstacy and marijuana. The Bears believe he will work through the situation but like it or not it's going to draw comparisons galore to Tank Johnson, the defensive tackle he's trying to replace.
Harrison also has a history of knee injuries with surgery to repair his torn left ACL last spring.
