Lance Louis: Tight End... Scratch That... Guard

When the Chicago Bears drafted Lance Louis in the 7th round of the draft, they announced him as a Tight End

The 6-3, 303-pound rank the 40-yard dash in 4.68 seconds, that is why the Bears believe he can make the move. Louis was one of the most recognized tight ends in the country coming out of high school and was converted in college. Some teams looked at him as a fullback too.

He will challenge Kellen Davis, a fifth-round pick last season, for a roster spot. Davis shined as a receiver in training camp last summer but the Bears don't need a third tight end to catch passes--they have Desmond Clark and Greg Olsen. They need an in-line blocker for run downs and Louis has a chance to win that battle.

But, as first mentioned on WCG by CloudyFuture, it appears the Bears have already switched him to Guard.

The Bears updated their Web site to add rookies numbers and positions and Louis has been assigned No. 60. He's listed as a guard.
