Bears work out DeShone Kizer

Quarterback DeShone Kizer is considered a local prospect for the Bears because he attended Notre Dame and that means he is allowed to work out for the team at their facility.

Albert Breer of reports that Kizer did just that on Thursday. The Bears have shown interest in Kizer since his pro day, which went off with Kizer wearing a shirt from the band “Chicago.”

The Bears signed Mike Glennon to a three-year contract early in free agency, so they presumably have their quarterback of the immediate future. Kizer described himself as having a lot of room to grow when asked about Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly’s suggestion that he should have stayed in school, so an apprenticeship might not be an issue on either side.

The Bears own the third and 36th picks in the draft, which leaves them well-positioned to pick one of the top quarterbacks later this month. Breer reports that teams believe Kizer will likely fall out of the first round, so No. 36 could be a landing spot if that analysis proves correct.

    This guy has EJ Manuel written all over him. Bust.

    Ryan Pace continually says he wants a QB who is a winner and elevates a program. To turn around and drafting a QB who won 4 games last year on a team that badly underperformed, would make all that talk a complete joke.

    Ya, because Jimmy Clausen and Rick Mier worked out so well for you. But they let Joe Montana go for 3 rounds without picking him.

    Just what the Bears need…….a under-achiever who need to spend two more years in college learning to be a QB. I guess you could just throw him in the first game of 2017 and hope for the best. After-all the Bears are slated to be last in their division anyway. The Pack, Vikes and Lions have far fewer issues.
