The Chicago Bears entered the third round of the 2012 NFL draft still needing help on offensive line, but instead selected safety Brandon Hardin from Oregon State. According to Bleacher Report Draft Expert Matt Miller, Hardin hits well, but has limited range. Chicago should have bolstered the offensive line, but chose to overlook the position, and it may be to their detriment.
