Pierre Walters is seeking to be the first player drafted from Eastern Illinois in 10 years and the Bears are showing some late interest in the defensive end.
According to the Daily Eastern News, Walters met with the Bears last week. He's a late-round prospect who is getting interest from 4-3 and 3-4 teams as an outside linebacker and it's not a lock he will be selected. But Walters showed well at the Texas vs. The Nation game, which was scouted by general manager Jerry Angelo, and he turned in 1 1/2 sacks late in the game.
At 6-4, 269 pounds, he's an interesting prospect. San Diego flew him out for a visit with defensive coordinator Ron Rivera. Green Bay, which is switching to the 3-4, and Indianapolis also worked him out.
We've added Walters to our list of players the Bears brought in for visits or worked out.
