Football: Sooners' Iglesias goes in 3rd round to Bears
Zach Butler, The Oklahoma Daily
Oklahoma's Juaquin Iglesias has become the latest Sooners player to be drafted by the Chicago Bears.
Iglesias went to Chicago late in the third round of the NFL draft Sunday, with the 99th overall pick. He's the fifth Sooners player drafted by the Bears in the last six years, and the first since fellow receiver Mark Bradley in 2005.
The Bears have also selected defensive tackles Tommie Harris and Dusty Dvoracek as well as fullback J.D. Runnels in recent years.
Iglesias is the second Oklahoma player taken in this year's draft, following offensive tackle Phil Loadholt. Loadholt was Minnesota's second-round pick.
Oklahoma State tight end Brandon Pettigrew went to the Detroit Lions with the 20th overall pick.
