Tennessee found a pretty promising defensive end in the second round last year when the Titans drafted Jason Jones.

Now, there’s another player coming out of the MAC school that the Bears are keeping a close eye on.

The team is expected to bring in offensive tackle T.J. Lang for a visit some time after his pro day later this month, according to a report.

Lang is a three-year starter at left tackle who started on the other side of the ball. Maybe it’s his background on defense that gives him a nasty demeanor NFL types like. Ultimately, he could project inside or at right tackle. He didn’t miss a game the last three seasons and is considered a physical performer.

At the Texas vs. The Nation Game, which general manager Jerry Angelo scouted, Lang was worked at both center and guard, as well as tackle, and reportedly did well. The Eagles will hold their pro day March 16.
