Smith looking at South Florida safety?

My NFC South colleague Pat Yasinskas reports that Chicago's Lovie Smith was one of three head coaches in attendances Tuesday at South Florida's pro day. Smith doesn't make a ton of appearances at these events, so you have to figure there is someone specific he wanted to see.

My guess? Safety Nate Allen is projected as a second-round pick, and Scouts Inc. has him rated as the 47th-best player in the draft. The Bears don't have a pick in that round, but it's not out of the question that they could trade up -- or that Allen could fall to their current position in the third round (No. 75 overall). Allen did everything Tuesday except the 40-yard dash because of a slight hamstring pull.
