Bears could use Ohio State WR

Just a few days ago, Ohio State wide receiver Brian Robiskie had been projected as a third- or fourth-round pick in many mock drafts, but his performance at the Scouting Combine may have gotten him into Round Two on some draft boards, maybe even as high as the No. 49 pick, where the Bears will choose. If he somehow falls to the third round, he could be a huge bargain. Robiskie isn't nearly as fast as most of the other top wide receivers. He officially ran a 4.59 in Indianapolis, while 10 wideouts were clocked in under 4.45. But the 6-foot-3, 207-pound Robiskie looked better than any of them catching the ball in drills. He showed super-soft hands and effortlessly caught the ball with his hands extended away from his body without breaking stride. Robiskie tested well in areas other than the 40-yard dash. He had the fifth-best time among the wideouts in the three-cone drill (6.72 seconds), was eighth in the 20-yard shuttle with a time of 4.19 seconds, and finished ninth with a vertical jump of 37 ½ inches.
