2012 NFL Draft: Bears Sign Safety Brandon Hardin, Finish Signing Draft Picks

There will be no rookies holding out of the Chicago Bears training camp in 2012. According to CBS Chicago, the last yet-signed Bears draft pick -- S Brandon Hardin -- has become now-signed.

Despite being the last Bears draft pick to sign, Hardin is likely the most eager to get on the field. The third-round pick missed the entirety of his senior year with the Oregon St. Beavers after suffering a critical shoulder injury. In his shortened college career, Hardin collected 8 pass deflections, 1 interception and 105 tackles.

Most NFL teams take several weeks -- if not several months -- to sign their entire draft class, but the Bears organization has long been one of the fastest organizations to get its rookies under contract.
