According to a report, Oregon running back De'Anthony Thomas will be paying the Bears a pre-draft visit.

The Bears could use a backup to Matt Forte following the departure of Michael Bush, and Thomas could fit that bill.

A projected second/third-round pick by, Thomas has many different tools that could benefit the Bears at present. In addition to backing up at running back, Thomas' speed and playmaking abilities make him a potential return man or even wide receiver.

Could the Bears spend one of their early picks on Thomas? Meeting with him Tuesday could help them determine that.
