The Bears flew Maurice Crum Jr., the Notre Dame linebacker, in for a pre-draft visit at Halas Hall today.
The team has been doing its homework on some linebackers that project as a late-round picks or priority free agents.
Crum, 6-foot, 235 pounds, might project as an inside linebacker. He ran the 40 in 4.85 seconds at his pro day in South Bend, Ind. Some feel his size and stats don't tell the entire story. He was a team MVP last season and a captain.
