Shane Vereen hopes to be the next Golden Bear picked in this year's NFL Draft.

Last night we saw Cameron Jordan become the first Golden Bear chosen in the 2011 NFL Draft.  While we had to endure an excruciating wait as he fell from a mid-round projection all the way to 24th, today we can only be pleasantly surprised.  Shane Vereen, Chris Conte, and Mike Mohamed are the three remaining Bears with the highest odds of being drafted, but the consensus is that they will not be chosen until the 4th, 5th/6th, and 7th rounds, respectively.  While we might not expect any Cal players to be drafted today, it's not inconceivable that we might be surprised in the next few hours (right Christian Ponder?).   Green Bay could use a running back and they do have the second-to-last pick in the third round.  Could they use it to draft Vereen before Harbaugh tries to take him in the 4th round?  We'll find out soon enough.

Coverage kicks off at 3pm PDT on both ESPN and the NFL Network.  Follow along in the comments below.  Go Bears!
