Continuing with 2013 Senior Bowl coverage we come to the first viewing of  the South team on the NFL Network.  A lot of big time  SEC kids fill out the roster which as usual will be putting a lot of kids into the league. Two offensive linemen stood out as players the Bears could take a glance out.  First a player who may propel himself into the first round is Oklahoma offensive tackle Lane Johnson.  Johnson is a good athlete, with good footwork, good technique, and is a good run blocker.  There is really nothing that Johnson doesn't do well.  He has athleticism necessary to get up to the second level, to pull and get ahead of running backs he just does it all well.  He plays with a nasty streak and finishes his blocks.  He may not be a dynamic as a Luke Joeckel or Eric Fisher, but he shouldn't be taken for granted.  Johnson has played both right and left tackle at Oklahoma and can play both positions equally well.  He's far more athletic than a player like Gabe Carimi but wins with technique and effort in the run game.  He's not as strong as maybe you'd like but his frame says he can add on some weight and still be very effective.  He could potentially be a player that the Bears consider at the 20th overall pick, if they feel they need to upgrade the OT position.  Another prospect on the offensive line who ideally fits the mold of a zone-blocking scheme center is Brian Schwenke of Cal.  Schwenke measured 6-foot-3 307-poundss and profiles as a player who plays with good technique, good angles and has good movement skills.  He can play center or guard at the next level and fits the profile of a guard who moves well who can get out on stretch plays, scrape the second level and hit a moving target, all the things the Bears might consider if they're looking to migrate more towards a zone-blocking rushing attack.  Lastly the Bears might be in need of adding some cornerback depth, especially at the nickel spot and one player who may fit that role is San Diego State's Leon McFadden.  McFadden is 5-foot-9 193-pounds and is scrappy.  He shows good footwork and transition in his back pedal.  He's a tough kid who battles for the football and has made a name for himself throughout the first two days of Senior Bowl practices.  He had one pick and nearly added a second in practice and may be available in the middle rounds.  His scrappy attitude in lieu of his short stature makes him an ideal tough nickel-back that fits the profile of the Bears secondary under Jon Hoke.  He does all of the things you ask for in a player who may be a fourth round pick only because of his smallish stature. Eric Galko of Optimum Scouting is down in Mobile all week providing in-depth analysis and reports on practice at the 2012 Senior Bowl.  Follow his coverage on twitter @optimumscouting and on his website Senior Bowl headquarters.
