    Illinois defensive tackle Joshua Price-Brent had a "very good workout" in front of NFL scouts on Wednesday, according to's Gil Brandt.

    The 6-foot-1 3/4-inch, 321-pounder worked out outside on field turf on the Illini's practice field, according to Brandt, and was clocked in 5.38 seconds in the 40-yard dash on two separate occasions. He did 22 reps on the bench press and had a 29-inch vertical jump, an eight-foot, 10-inch broad jump and finished the three-cone drill in 7.71 seconds.

    In all, 18 scouts were in attendance, including pro personnel directors of the 49ers, Packers, Saints and Lions. It was not immediately known whether the Bears were in attendance.

    Price-Brent declared for the supplemental draft after becoming academically ineligible. Before that, he had been suspended because of a DUI.

    The supplemental draft is July 15. The Bears have bid on players in the supplemental draft before but have never acquired a player via the supplemental draft.
