Bears Show More Interest In Flacco

More from Rob G: senior NFL reporter Adam Caplan is reporting that Chicago Bears officials have scheduled a private workout at Halas Hall in March with Delaware quarterback Joe Flacco.

Originally forecasted to be a second- or third-round selection, Flacco (6-6, 230) impressed a lot of scouts at the Senior Bowl and could now be in the mix at the end of Round 1. A prototypical drop-back passer who put up huge numbers in two seasons with the Blue Hens, he can make all the throws necessary of a pro quarterback and possesses excellent touch and timing. His mechanics need some work and he didn't play against top collegiate competition, but he's drawn rave reviews so far and is moving up draft boards everywhere.

Two weeks ago I had barely even heard of the kid, but now I am kind of getting used to the idea of him being a Bears pick.  It really is going to depend on his combine, if he has a great one and works himself into the first round, I don't see it happening.
