Alabama offensive lineman D.J. Fluker calls the Chicago Bears a "nasty" team. Maybe he could make the offensive line a little nastier. Fluker, who weighed in at 339 pounds, said he has a private meeting scheduled with the Bears on Friday evening. He met with the Bears a month ago at the Senior Bowl, where he weighed in at 355 pounds. Draft guru Mel Kiper recently predicted the Bears would take the fast-rising Fluker at No. 20 in the first round. Kiper praised Fluker for his great size and long arms on an elite Alabama offensive line. Fluker charmed the Combine media members Friday with his energy and passion. He said the most exciting part of the game is knocking a defensive end down "every single play" and let the opponent know the ball is coming right behind him. "Any team that wants to win a championship, any team that wants to win on every Sunday, that's the type of team that I want to go to,'' he said. ``The team that has the attitude, `I will not be denied.' The guys that want to go out there and actually work hard, actually want to do something special -- win a Super Bowl, win a championship -- that's the type of team that I want to be a part of.''
