According to Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune, the Bears were among 11 teams to visit with UTSA DE/OLB Marcus Davenport since the Combine.
Regarding the visit, Davenport said it was really more personal than anything else.
“We talked a lot,” Davenport said. “Really it was more personal. They were trying to get to know me as a person because coming from a school that doesn’t have much history, they didn’t come through as much. They weren’t keeping a record of me all the years.”
Chicago has come up as a team who could possibly trade back in round one, so there’s at least a chance Davenport could be a consideration for them on Thursday.

- Some of Shorr-Parks hypothetical trades are just draft picks swaps while others including players such as QB Nick Foles, LB Mychal Kendricks and CB Ronald Darby.
- Shorr-Parks believes UTSA DE Marcus Davenport or Boston College DE Harold Landry would be ideal targets for the Eagles in round one.
- Incarnate Word P Joseph Zema had a private workout with the Eagles on Wednesday. (Aaron Wilson)
the son of Panthers owner Jerry Richardson’s son, Mark, believes South Carolina businessman Ben Navarro is the best candidate to take over as the franchise’s owner.
“I’m sure there are multiple people that could be the right next owner. I personally know Ben and I know what he stands for,” Richardson said, via Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer. “I know where his heart and his head is, and what his commitments are. And I can’t imagine a better person being the next owner than him.”
“I’m a fan of his and I’m a fan of what he stands for and how he does things. He’s committed to the right things for the right reasons,” Richardson said. “I think he’d be a wonderful owner.”
