You can look around the NFC North and there are plenty of teams in the division that have a serious need at inside linebacker. While teams could end up fighting for their favorite linebacker prospect on draft day, teams are bringing in draft prospects for pre-draft visits to familiarize themselves with the talent that could soon be joining their roster.
The latest team to bring in a linebacker for a visit is the Chicago Bears.
According to Jeff Dickerson of ESPNChicago.com, the Bears will be hosting Kansas State linebacker Arthur Brown sometime this week.

Brown is an interesting prospect because of his versatility and ability to play either inside or outside in your scheme.
He’s a name that the casual fan may not be aware of, but he has consistently been sneaking in to the second half of round one since the draft season began. Brown has a real shot at being a first-round pick and it wouldn’t be a surprise to see him land in Chicago.
