For the second time in a little more than two months, the Chicago Bears have met with Washington State safety Deone Bucannon, a potential second-round draft pick.

According to Jeff Dickerson of ESPNChicago.com, the Chicago Bears hosted Washington State safety Deone Bucannon yesterday.

The Bears also visited with Bucannon in January at the Senior Bowl.

Bucannon (6-1, 211) earned first-team Pac-12 honors last season and was named a second-team Walter Camp All American after leading the conference in tackles (102). He also had five interceptions and three forced fumbles.

Considered one of the hardest-hitting safeties in this year's class, Bucannon is projected as a second-round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.

At the Senior Bowl, I asked Bucannon about his meeting with Bears.

"They interviewed me. I feel it went well," he said. "Of course, the Bears defense, it's historical. It was awesome."
