Two mid-round running back prospects made the trip on Wednesday, with Florida Atlantic's Devin Singletary and Texas A&M's Trayveon Williams stopping by.

Singletary had a disappointing performance at the NFL combine, running slow for a player who measured in at only 5-foot-7 and a half.

He was a smart, productive runner for the Owls who wasn't used much as a receiver, leaving question marks about how much of a play-maker he can be at the next level.

Williams didn't jump out the gym in Indianapolis either, but he has some more wiggle to his game and is a more well-rounded back.

He's a more raw runner from a technique standpoint, but he's proven himself as a receiver and a blocker, giving him an instant role on third downs in the NFL.

Both prospects are intriguing potential Day 3 picks, and it's clear the Bears are still looking closely at the running back position, even after signing Mike Davis.
