The Chicago Bears acted to address the loss of linebacker Brian Urlacher in free agency by selecting Florida linebacker Jonathan Bostic in the second round of Friday's NFL draft.

Bostic, a senior inside linebacker with a reputation for speed, made 67 tackles with 6 1/2 sacks as a senior and for his career had five interceptions and two forced fumbles.

The Bears and Urlacher failed to reach a contract agreement in March and a decision was made to look elsewhere at the position. The Bears signed former Broncos middle linebacker D.J. Williams in free agency as an immediate replacement for Urlacher, and he played the position in the team's April minicamp.
