Postcard from Indy: Live from combine

INDIANAPOLIS -- Welcome to Indianapolis, home of the 2011 NFL Scouting Combine.

ESPNChicago.com Bears reporter Jeff Dickerson has already cranked out a piece on new Carolina head coach Ron Rivera, a member of the 1985 Super Bowl team. But that’s just the beginning of what should be a busy week here at Lucas Oil Stadium.

Check in with us all week for interesting tidbits about what’s going on here at the combine, and how some of it could affect the Chicago Bears. New San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh, a former Bears quarterback, takes the podium at 11:45 a.m. CT. We’ll get his thoughts about the new job, and whether his time with Mike Ditka, his former coach in Chicago, will play a role in his approach.

We’ll also try to catch up with some of the pro prospects from the Chicago area to give you some insight into one of the most important processes of their lives.

Stay tuned.
