Bears Sign 3rd Rounder Hardin

(CBS) With the signing of safety Brandon Hardin to a four-year contract Tuesday, the Bears now have their entire 2012 draft class under contract.

The Bears selected Hardin in the third round (79th overall pick) of the 2012 NFL Draft out of Oregon State. The 6-2, 222 pounder started 15 of 38 games played for the Beavers, registering 105 tackles, three tackles for loss, three forced fumbles, one interception and seven passes defended.

He was a two-time Pac-10 all-academic selection but missed his entire senior season due to a shoulder injury.
