Bear Report Audio: Chris Steuber

In this exclusive audio feature for, NFL Draft analyst Chris Steuber gets with Bear Report publisher John Crist to assess what the Chicago Bears can expect at the Scouting Combine.

John Crist: The Bears have to ramp up that pass rush. A couple of small-school guys seem to be targeted, Austen Lane of Murray State and – one of your favorites – Alex Carrington of Arkansas State. Can either one of these guys be a pure pass rusher in a 4-3? Tell me about them.

Chris Steuber: In a 4-3, yeah, I think Carrington can really play in a 4-3. Austen Lane, though, I think he's more of an outside linebacker at this point in a 3-4. He could be a defensive end in a 4-3, but he's a little bit undersized. I think they both can play in the 4-3, but I like Carrington the most out of those two prospects.
