The Bears couldn’t get Notre Dame’s Tommy Zbikowski after the Notre Dame safety went in the third round to the Baltimore Ravens, but were able to get a player with similar traits in Craig Steltz in the fourth round.
He’s a hard-nosed player who says he is fully recovered after fracturing his right shoulder in the national championship game, and figures to step in on special teams immediately. If he truly is fine medically, he could challenge Adam Archuleta for a roster spot.
Have you noticed a trend, by the way?
Vanderbilt. Vanderbilt. Arkansas. LSU.
The Bears love the Southeastern Conference.
Yes, the Bears still need to draft a guard. They're 11 picks away. USC's Drew Radovich, Oregon State's Roy Schuening and Tennessee's Eric Young. If they want to roll the dice on another character issue ... Nebraska's Carl Nicks remains on the board in a freefall.
