Bears talk with Baylor offensive lineman Spencer Drango at Senior Bowl

There were a few reports leaking out about prospects the Chicago Bears met with down at the East-West Shrine game last week, but the reports are flowing much quicker from the Senior Bowl. The game isn't until Saturday and practices don't even start until tomorrow, but the players are already down in Mobile, Alabama, so that means NFL scouts, coaches and GMs are starting to meet with them.

According to RosterWatch, which has a weekly radio show on Sirius XM, the Bears have met with Baylor offensive lineman Spencer Drango. The 6'6", 320 pound Drango is a four year starter at left tackle for Baylor, but some believe a move inside to guard is waiting at the next level.

CBS Sports has him currently listed as a 2nd-3rd round prospect as a guard, with Dane Brugler saying he "has the skills to fight for first round status."

In my opinion the Bears have a need for a new right guard. Here's what Baylor Football has to say about Drango.

Senior tackle Spencer Drango earned Big 12 Offensive Lineman of the Year for a second straight year, joining Cyril Richardson (2012, 2013) as the only two players in program history to earn the honor and the only two players in Big 12 history to win the honor twice in a career.

The Outland Trophy finalist was a unanimous first-team All-Big 12 choice for the third straight year and led all BU blockers with a 90.3 percent coaches grade and 48 knockdowns as a starter in all 12 games in an offense that leads the country in points (48.0) and yards (604.6) per game.

Drango has helped Baylor's rushing attack rank fourth in the country with 300.2 yards per contest. He is also a key component in helping the Bears give up only 1.25 sacks per game, which ranks 19th-best nationally and leads the Big 12.

Drango did have back surgery in 2013, so he'll have to go through numerous medical tests at the NFL Combine.
