Chicago Bears Pre-Draft Visit and Workout Tracker


The draft is less than three weeks away and teams are all doing their due diligence on draft prospects, including working players out and conducting pre-draft visits.  The league limits pre-draft visits to 30 per team but local workouts and other loopholes usually allow more contact.

These visits aren’t always a direct link to players that may or may not be selected by a team, but you can see a trend for positions the team is interested in selecting.  The list below highlights players who’ve had a formal visit or workout, as best we can track.  Not all of the pre-draft visits and workouts become official but with the insiders and “sources” that exist, we usually get a pretty good list.  We’ll update the list through the draft as news of new visits and workouts comes in.  If you hear any news, post your tips in the comments or e-mail me at [email protected]

    why was lynch the only QB brought in?? McCarron is a better qb than lynch will ever be.

      There is no way Mcarron will be there by the time da bears can afford to take him nick. My opinion (could be wrong)

    • Mike “Boomer” Burzawa

      Keep in mind a couple of things. This time of year, you have a lot of smoke and mirrors. Teams bring in prospects that maybe they didn’t scout as heavily or to get more information. In Lynch’s case, it could be that they’re feeling it out in case he goes undrafted or if he could be a viable candidate for a different position other than QB. Besides that, I think Lynch came in for the Bears’ local Pro Day, which is a chance for them to see a bunch of local kids all in one shot. Not arguing that McCarron is a far better prospect, but they may not want to tip their hand if they’re really interested in him.

      You guys are forgetting, not all visits are published. There is still some confidentiality, allowing teams to keep their draft strategies competitive.
