A report is featured on former Tiger Troy Reddick.

Chicago, Ill.--Former Auburn offensive lineman Troy Reddick is being given a chance to make the roster of the Chicago Bears as a free agent.

A full-time starter for three seasons after starting three times as a true freshman guard in 2002, Reddick played tackle the past two seasons for the Tigers. He played his first two seasons at Auburn as a guard.

Reddick was an Associated Press honorable All-SEC pick as a junior. His top game that season featured a 98 percent grade with three pancake blocks vs. Georgia.

Reddick played both ways in high school at Westover, but was exclusively and offensive player as a collegian.

As a senior, the native of Albany, Ga., had his best game against Georgia with an overall grade of 99 percent with 15 pancake blocks. He was again named an honorable mention All-SEC selection by AP.

The lineman showed his versatile earlier in his senior season by playing center in Auburn's victory at Kentucky. He played in 45 games for the Tigers and started 40. He is expected to get his shot with the Bears as a guard.

Auburn's other starting offensive tackle, Marcus McNeill, was drafted in the second round by the San Diego Chargers. Reddick was expected to be drafted, but his postseason workouts for pro scouts hurt his draft stock. Reddick also talked to the Cleveland Browns about signing as a free agent.

Offensive tackle Marcus McNeill (second round, San Diego Chargers) was selected along with seventh round wide receiver picks Devin Aromashodu (Miami Dolphins) and Ben Obomanu (Seattle Seahawks) plus junior defensive end Stanley McClover (Carolina Panthers), who was also taken the seventh round.
