Draft Result

Drafted in the 2011 Draft by the Chicago Bears in the 2nd round with the #21 pick.
The Bears released Tommie Harris in the early parts of this offseason, and have an opening on the interior of their defensive line. Paea set the bench press record at the Combine, and his athletic ability makes him an attractive option for the Bears in this spot.
