The Chicago Bears may be done with the draft, but they’re still busily trying to add some more pieces via the through the undrafted free agent market. The Bears have had success tapping into the undrafted free agent market in the past with such fringe players as offensive lineman James Brown, wide receiver Dane Sanzenbacher and safety Anthony Walters.
Here is an unofficial list of undrafted free agents and tryout players, via the Chicago Tribune website:
LB Tunde Bakare, Kansas
QB Jimmy Coy, St. Xavier, tryout
WR Demetrius Fields, Northwestern
RB Michael Ford, LSU, contract
WR Mark Harrison, Rutgers, contract
LS Brandon Hartson, Memphis
CB Demontre Hurst Oklahoma, contract
WR Josh Lenz, Iowa State, contract
C P.J. Lonegran, LSU, contract
DT Zach Minter, Montana State, contract
WR Marcus Rucker, Memphis, contract
DT Brent Russell, Georgia Southern, contract
P Tress Way, Oklahoma, contract
CB C.J. Wilson, N.C. State
There are some interesting prospects among these players, most notably wide receiver Mark Harrison out of Rutgers. He was a fairly well regarded prospect, but his hotel room at the Indianapolis Scouting Combine was trashed and his draft stock dropped.
Another interesting player is NC State cornerback CJ Wilson. He ran a 4.34 40-yard dash and since the Bears didn’t pick up any cornerbacks in the draft, he could have a shot to compete for a roster spot.
