SHARE The big catch? Bears line up a private workout for wide receiver

We’ve tracked down the names of a couple players the Bears will bring to Halas Hall on official pre-draft visits so far–Eastern Michigan offensive tackle T.J. Lang and Penn State guard Rich Ohrnberger. Scout.com’s Adam Caplan first reported the Ohrnberger visit. The Bears are scheduled to put Ohio University safety Michael Mitchell through a private workout later this month.

Now a bigger name.

Wide receivers coach Darryl Drake is headed to North Carolina soon to put Tar Heels wide receiver Hakeem Nicks through a workout. The Bears will get a look at Nicks Tuesday at the school’s pro day and college scouting director Greg Gabriel will be in attendance. Here is a video of some Nicks’ highlights from school.

Check back here throughout the day Tuesday. We’ll try to make as many updates as we can from minicamp, and we’ll also be checking in via Twitter. Our handle is cst_bears if you’re interested in joining the action.
