Linebacker Russell Allen was not the only player the Bears put through a private workout last week at San Diego State.
With general manager Jerry Angelo among the club personnel hanging around Southern California a few extra days following the conclusion of the owners meetings, the Bears took a look at Allen and at the same time put Aztecs guard Lance Louis through a private workout.
The 6-3, 303-pound Louis is an interesting prospect who was clocked as fast as 4.68 seconds in the 40-yard dash. No, those were not typos--303 pounds and 4.68.
He was one of the most recruited tight ends in the nation coming out of high school and played tight end for the Aztecs before being converted. Teams are looking at him as a guard but also considering him as a tight end or fullback in certain situations. He put up 30 reps on the bench press at 225 pounds and has quickness.
