Report: TCU's Richmond to visit

The Chicago Bears have invited Texas Christian University offensive tackle Nic Richmond for a pre-draft visit to Halas Hall, according to a published report on Thursday.

Richmond was skipped over for next week's NFL scouting combine, according to the Chicago Tribune, but he will visit the Bears ahead of TCU's pro day on March 12. NFL teams are allowed to bring in no more than 30 players for pre-draft visits. Richmond, who is 6-foot-7 and weighs 307 pounds, played both tackle positions for the Horned Frogs, but primarily played right tackle.

The Bears college scouts have been at Halas Hall since last Thursday to prepare for the scouting combine, the Tribune reported. The first workouts scheduled to begin at the combine are on Feb. 26 with offensive lineman, tight ends, kickers and punters.
