The NFL Draft Combine has come and gone. For those Bears not invited, Baylor Pro Day allows them to show their athleticism, strength, and agility in front of over 20 teams scheduled to be in attendance. SicEm365 looks at the former Bears looking to impress and what to expect from their performances.

COMBINE INVITEES

Three Bears were invited to the NFL Draft Combine and two were able to work out.

Receiver KD Cannon and offensive lineman Kyle Fuller will likely rest on their results from the combine after being measured and weighed. Each will run drills for NFL Scouts with Cannon showing his knowledge of the route tree. Fuller will show his footwork and technique.

Quarterback Seth Russell was unable to workout in Indianapolis due to his ankle injury against Oklahoma. Russell did throw to receivers at the NFL Draft Combine, but expect him to attempt competing in the vertical and broad jump, shuttle, and 40-yard dash on Wednesday. Russell will also throw to receivers attempting to impress the NFL Scouts attending.

FORMER BEARS COMPETING

LB, AIAVION EDWARDS
Edwards has ideal size at linebacker and flashed his ability in several games, including the Russell Athletic Bowl. Edwards will need to show explosiveness in the 40-yard dash and shuttle as well as agility. Edwards should impress enough to be invited to an NFL Training Camp.

WR, LYNX HAWTHORNE
Hawthorne has surprising athleticism and could be looked at as an inside receiver in the NFL. Hawthorne will need to show speed in the 40 to entice a team to invite him to their camp.

NB, PAT LEVELS
Levels could be the surprise of the Pro Day as he has explosiveness and agility. The issue facing Levels is limited tape and which position will NFL Scouts see him playing. Is he tall enough for safety or quick enough for cornerback. The 40, shuttle, and drills will go a long way in determining his aspirations for an NFL career. If Levels runs in the 4.5 range he should receive a camp invite.

RB, SHOCK LINWOOD
Linwood is Baylor's all-time leading rusher, but had a difficult Senior season. Linwood will need to show a frame capable of handling the pounding of the NFL. He will also need to perform well in the 40, shuttle, and drills. Linwood should receive a camp invite after his performance Wednesday unless he runs near 4.8.

ATH, KALEB MOORE
Moore is an uber-athlete with good size, but his limited tape may put him in line for an invitation to a regional camp.

CB, RYAN REID
A three-year starter at cornerback, Reid should impress with his 40 and shuttle. Reid should receive a camp invite from his tape alone and will look to make his way in the NFL similar to former Bear Josh Bell.

S, ORION STEWART
Stewart is a three-year starter at safety and was invited to the Reese's Senior Bowl where he performed well in drills and on the field. Stewart will need to run well to push himself into a team's plans for a late selection or top rated undrafted free agent. 

CB, TION WRIGHT
Wright started several games at cornerback for the Bears, but his size will be a knock on him for NFL Scouts, but his quickness and speed could turn some heads.

WR, ISHMAEL ZAMORA
Zamora is the one player teams will be there to see and his size, speed, and athleticism at receiver are the reasons. Zamora will need a team to fall in love with him and several are coming just to watch him run routes and workout. Zamora could push himself into the late rounds of the draft with a 40 4.55 or under. If he runs anything under a 4.5 he is likely to get drafted.

RB, LACHE SEASTRUNK
Seastrunk has been in and out of the NFL the past two seasons and will be there to try to entice another team to possibly give the running back one last shot.

OL, TYLER EDWARDS
Edwards started several games at tackle and guard for the Bears and graduated in 2015. He had a slight injury and rehabbed in 2016 to have a chance at a team picking him up in 2017. Edwards will need to show he has the size, strength, and footwork to receive a camp invite.

DB, TERRENCE SINGLETON
Singleton left Baylor as a graduate transfer and started at cornerback for Prairie View A&M in 2016. Singleton's athleticism earned him the nickname Freaky T and it will be interesting to hear his numbers after spending a year away from Baylor's Strength, Conditioning, and Nutrition program.
