Report: Bears To Host RB Ezekiel Elliott For Visit

(CBS) With the NFL Draft less than two weeks away, the Bears are set to meet with one of the best offensive players available.

Chicago will host Ohio State running back Ezekiel Elliott on Wednesday, the NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported. Elliott has a connection to the organization already, as Bears running back coach Stan Drayton previously coached Elliott at Ohio State.

Elliott rushed for 1,821 yards and 23 touchdowns for the Buckeyes in 2015.

The Bears hold the No. 11 pick. Elliott's projected to be a top-15 pick, and many have him going inside the top 10.

Elliott was scheduled to meet Monday with the Dolphins, who hold the No. 13 pick.
