2012 Bears Offseason: Brandon Hardin Adjusting To Safety Position

Brandon Hardin -- the Bears' third round pick in the 2012 NFL Draft -- is transitioning from cornerback to safety, and that adjustment has given him a lot of new things to think about.

"There is somewhat of a learning curve," Hardin said. "I'm thinking a lot more, playing a new position. I'm still thinking somewhat about the drops, trying to get quarterback reads, what the receivers are doing. The coaches tell me it will all come second nature eventually."

Hardin racked up 105 tackles and one interception in 38 games as a cornerback at Oregon State. Injuries kept him from playing in 2011.
