UPDATED TO CORRECT OUR ERROR The Bears drafted
two three wide receivers on Sunday, grabbing Oklahoma's Juaquin Iglesias in the third round, Abilene Christian's Johnny Knox in the fifth round and Pitt's Derek Kinder in the seventh round, and a league source tells the Sun-Times that Northwestern's Eric Peterman will sign a free-agent deal.
Peterman ran a sub-4.5 40-yard dash in his pro day at school.
Peterman had seven catches for 83 yards in the Alamo Bowl loss to Missouri and eight catches for 111 yards in the regular-season finale vs. Illinois. He finished his senior season with 59 catches, 737 yards and six touchdowns.
The key for him to make an NFL roster, though, is going to be his versatility. He will need to stand out as a receiver and excel on special teams.
