Quiz: How well do you know the new Bears?

April 28, 2013|By Matt Lindner | For RedEye

Three linebackers, two offensive linemen and a wide receiver walk into Halas Hall … hoping to change the course of football history in Chicago.

The Bears' newest draft class arrives with lofty expectations and daunting challenges at each position. It is composed of three guys (linebackers Jon Bostic, Khaseem Greene and Cornelius Washington) hoping to make fans forget about the franchise icon they're trying to replace; two (offensive linemen Kyle Long and Jordan Mills) who are hoping to prevent Kristin Cavallari from becoming a widow before her 30th birthday once she and Jay Cutler make it down the aisle; and another (wide receiver Marquess Wilson) looking to be a credible deep threat alongside Brandon Marshall.

But as anyone who has ever moved to the city knows, it's not easy being the new guy in town.

Nobody knows you, you don't know anybody, and let's face it, the city can be intimidating. You're going to get to know a lot more about these guys both on and off the field in the coming days.
