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...

For the Chicago Bears and other NFL teams looking to shore up their offensive line, Mobile and the Senior Bowl workouts is the place to be. Central Michigan tackle Eric Fisher is seeing his stock skyrocket with a second impressive practice. Fisher, 6’7″, 305, not only looks the part but proves it on the field. He dominated one-on-one drills, and [...]
The Chicago Bears today named Mike Clark the team's strength and conditioning coordinator. Clark spent the last three seasons in the same position with the Kansas City Chiefs.
Even when he was little, he was big.
His Super Bowl ring is the largest to have ever been made. His ring size is 25 – just five more than the Super Bowl XX it represents.
